Operating sliding doors doesn’t require a hinge. That’s because these glide along a track instead of swinging open.
So, no extra space is needed for the door arc. Also, they simply open up by one door sliding over another panel. So, the design is minimalistic yet functional. Further, as these move easily on their rails, they are easy to open. All you have to do is gently push them aside and these will glide open on either side.
So, you get easy access to the indoor areas—which are especially useful during winters—and outdoor areas—which are especially useful during the summers.
What are the uses of double sliding doors?
Provide Good Insulation
Sliding doors provide optimum energy efficiency. These are efficient insulators so that your living space stays cool in summers & warm in winters.
Double pane sliding glass doors & double sliding doors fitted with composite gaskets work wonders to provide optimal thermal insulation in your home. These are soundproof and weatherproof. So, you no longer have to worry about excessive noise, dust, or rain being a hassle when you stay indoors.
Double sliding doors create a seamless airflow between your home’s indoor & outdoor spaces. Besides, as these have large glass or fiberglass panes, you get mesmerizing panoramic views of your front yard and backyard throughout the year.
Gone are the days when external or internal double sliding glass doors had a reputation for not providing enough safety. We at Saina Doors always ensure that our handymen only install safety glass when crafting these doors.
But that’s not all. The glass or fiberglass we install in these doors is also scratch-resistant and shatterproof safety.
This is another important thing that our clients consider before investing in double sliding doors. And rightly so. We recommend all residential property owners look for sliding doors with incorporated seals, gaskets, and fixed leaves where these elements meet.
In addition to this, a hook-over locking mechanism will prevent the sliding leaf from being lifted out of its frame.
If security is your concern, such sliding doors are a good choice as the stiles are engineered for extra stability. So, a bridge is created between your abode’s indoors and outdoors.
For those who are lovers of natural light illuminating their homes, double sliding doors are worth considering. They have extra-large panes of glass running from the top to the bottom of every door panel. This built-in design ensures that maximum natural light comes through so that you can enjoy floodlit interiors throughout the day.
Moreover, sunlight is one of the best disinfectants. And who wouldn’t want to keep their home’s interiors germ-free?
You can even get double sliding doors made from wood, glass, or fiberglass. All these materials are sustainable and fully recyclable. So, by installing one such door built by the specialists at Saina Doors, what you’re really doing is contributing to mitigating climate change & saving precious natural resources!
Pro tip: Get your place’s double sliding doors glazed to derive the practical benefit of reducing harmful UV rays by almost 98 percent. Glazing also prevents energy loss, provides better acoustic insulation, & reduces frost and condensation on the glass.
Easy to maintain
Whether the double sliding doors at your place are made of wood, glass, or fiberglass, just a swipe of a cloth dabbed in water is sufficient to clean them. So, they are very low maintenance.
Comfort meets style
Last but not least, single or double pane sliding glass doors elegantly add to the aesthetic of any home. Their simple yet sleek look harmonizes with most architectural styles. Add to that their incredibly functional & practical design that lets maximum natural light enter the indoors & gives panoramic outdoor views.
What are the standard dimensions of a double sliding door?
