Types of Sliding Doors at Northridge Window Replacement Experts
There are three styles of sliding patio doors that you may choose from, depending on the width of the door.
- Two Panel Sliding Patio Door
In this style, there are two panels; one pane is fixed while the other is moving. It is a good choice for smaller rooms as it gives enough space to move in and out of the room with ease, without using a large part of the wall area.
- Three Panel Sliding Patio Door
A three panel sliding door is wider than the two panel door, having two fixed panes on each side of the door and the center one is moving. It gives an extra width to the glass door area offering more sunlight and better exterior view.
- Four Panel Sliding Patio Door
A four panel sliding door has two fixed panes and two moving ones in the center. This gives an immense opening to the door, giving better views of the outside, making the room look bigger and allowing you to easily move bigger furniture pieces through the door. So, this door takes care of the beauty and functionality aspect, hand in hand.
Safety Mechanism in Sliding Doors
Earlier it was considered that the sliding doors do not provide ample safety and security against break-ins and damage through impact. However, reputed door manufacturers have come up with fail-proof solutions to appease your concerns. Most of the sliding doors, whether they are two, three or four panel, have three-step locks fitted in them that reduces the risk of forced entry to a great extent. The other concern of breakage as a result of heavy impact is addressed using tempered glass. When a tempered glass is impacted with a heavy or high momentum object such as a hammer or a stone, it breaks into hundreds of tiny particles and stay within the frame, without falling off. So in case of an accident or deliberate attempt to break-in, the glass on the door shall still stay intact and guard you.
