Benefits And Types Of Glass Doors

Glass doors are often the most widely used architectural feature in renovations and new buildings. Besides throwing open the interiors of the home to the outside, glass doors have many other benefits.

Glass doors come in a variety of types from hinged and sliding to stacking and pivoting. The best part is that one can buy custom glass doors from the market.

Benefits

Here are some general benefits of glass doors:

  • Glass doors permit light to pass through. Doors opening to the exterior of the home let in natural light. This sunlight looks and feels much more pleasant than artificial light and is environment friendly, cutting energy costs.
  •  When the glass door is an interior one, it allows light to pass from one room to another, creating a highly attractive and practical space with fewer dark areas.
  • One complaint against glass doors is lack of privacy. But you can still enjoy the light from glass doors without compromising privacy: use colored, opaque glass or frosted glass for doors.
  • A major benefit of glass doors is that is easy to clean and is incredibly durable. Glass does not corrode, rust, doesn’t collect dust and grime. An occasional wipe with a piece of cloth is the only maintenance required.
  •  Modern technology of digital printing enables glass doors to have designs and patterns. For businesses, this offers scope for showcasing company logo.
  • There is a wide choice of color and type of glass doors in the market today.

Types

Here are major types of glass doors:

  • Single Hinged door

It is a traditional choice with a swiveling hinge on one side of the door frame, which makes it possible for other side of the door, to swing open from the wall. A hinged door can open outwards or inwards or both and has both internal and external use.

  • French doors

They are a pair of single hinged doors that open away from each other. Conventionally, they have multiple glass panels which are timber framed and swing inwards. Used for both exterior and interior doors, they are an attractive addition to a home.

  • Bi-fold doors

These are made of a series of individual folding door panels, which like single hinged doors can be frameless or framed. They are made of two or more hinged panels.

  • Pivot doors

They have hinges mounted at bottom and top of door, often at off-center or center point. This implies that when door is open, it is both outside and inside. Pivot doors can be multiple or single.

  • Sliding doors

They open sideward instead of outwards or inwards, gliding along frame work of the house or other glass panels.  Sliding doors permit expansive glass walls to maximize views, providing a transition from outdoor to indoor spaces. Examples are custom sliding glass shower doors.

  • Stacking doors

The resemble sliding doors but feature more moving panels. They are made of two or more panels which slide behind a single structural element or fixed panel. All panels collect and interlock with each other, causing the door to slide.

These are some facts about different types and benefits of glass doors.
