Apart from our windows, one of the best products we carry in Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix is our 400 SERIES Frenchwood® Gliding Patio Door. These sliding doors are the best addition to your next patio renovation project and for good reason. They’re tough, operate well and are notably low-maintenance.
And since they’re sliding doors, they also offer an unobstructed view of the patio without taking up too much space. Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix discusses these points in detail.
Benefits of a Gliding Door
One of the problems with a traditional hinged French door for your patio is that the door takes up so much room. You need to make sure the space indoors has the room for the door’s inward swing if you’re installing the hinges inside. On the other hand, an outdoor-swinging door will also reduce the space you have for designing your patio overall.
A gliding door solves this issue easily by reducing the space required for the doorway to nearly nil. You just need to make sure that the door has enough space for the sliding panels and you’re good.
Since there are fewer mechanisms at play with a sliding door as opposed to a hinged door, the 400 Series Frenchwood gliding patio doors require less maintenance than your traditional door. There are no hinges that need to be maintained. There’s also no doorknob that needs to be checked every so often. It doesn’t hurt that the components of the frame are designed to resist wear and tear. The track is made of aluminum, which is rust- and dent-resistant.
Smooth, Strong and Secure
We didn’t stop there, though. The concerns that homeowners have with sliding doors are the strength of the door, the smoothness of operation and security in general. We’re way ahead of you; we manufacture the rollers of each door use a dual ball-bearing system that ensures they stay in place. This mechanism also has a built-in leveling adjuster to prevent derailing.
Our frames are tough and secure, too. We use mortise-and-tenon joinery made even sturdier with our patented dowel design. And as each door is fitted with our very own reach-out locking hardware, our sliding contemporary doors add another layer of impregnability.
