Frameless glass sliding doors enjoy unchangeable popularity when it comes to designing entrances to the prestigious boutiques, shopping malls, large office centres, business centres, and even houses. The choice of such entrance doors will improve your reputation in the eyes of your customers, partners, and competitors. Also, you will show yourself as the person who does not lose sight of the important details. In our Creative Glass Studio, you can order modern sliding frameless glass doors. Besides, we use various decorating techniques, such as sandblasting and photo printing, to make your frameless glass sliding door even more unique and exquisite.
Indeed, the sliding doors offer many benefits. So the major one is that their design features allow you significantly save space. The door leaves move along the guide rails passing stationary glass panels or walls. The availability of roller carriages enables sliding inside the guide rails. When it comes to the sliding glass external doors, it is obvious they have to be automatic. Thus, the automatic drive is responsible for the door movement. Using the control panel board, you can control different door parameters. For example, it is possible to adjust the speed of door leaves movement, door open dwell time, doorway opening width, and so on. To ensure safety, it is necessary to equip the automatic glass sliding doors with photocells. These photocells detect the presence of motion interference. This makes the door leaves stop till the motion interference is removed.
The frameless sliding glass doors may have one, two or many doors leaves depending on the doorway width. The frameless glass door assemblies look so airy and sophisticated. Besides, these doors transmit light and visually expand the space. Undoubtedly, the frameless sliding glass doors are the modern way of organising the entrance area.
Glass for Frameless Sliding Doors
The full-glass structures do not have any wooden, plastic or metal frames and consist of the glass panels only. That is why these structures are called frameless. To create the frameless glass sliding doors, it is necessary to use only extra-strong glass panels with high impact resistance. Moreover, this glass must be safe for humans. Fortunately, the toughened glass has all these qualities. And our company uses such a glass in the frameless sliding glass door production. Due to the application of the latest toughening methods, the toughened glass has an impact resistance six times greater than the ordinary glass. Firstly, the glass undergoes heating to the melting point in a special glass furnace. And then it is cooled uniformly. This procedure modifies the crystalline structure of the upper layer of glass. Thanks to this, it is possible to increase the glass strength. Besides, it is very difficult to break the toughened glass. However, even if this happens, the pieces will have blunt edges. So if by inadvertence, these pieces still injure a person, there will be just a minor cut. Also, our glass studio uses the toughened laminated glass for the frameless entrance door production. Thus, if someone or something breaks the toughened laminated glass, all the fragments remain glued to each other till removal. Furthermore, there are the modern ways to stop the toughened laminated glass damage. They help extend the service life of the glass door if the crack is small.
To implement your original design ideas, our professionals can apply different decorating techniques to your frameless sliding glass door. Therefore, we will give your entrance sliding door individuality and elegance. Each decorating technique has its own characteristics and allows turning the frameless sliding glass door into a magnificent work of art.
Glass Sliding Door Hardware
In fact, to produce the frameless glass sliding doors of the highest quality, we use only special door hardware:
- Roller carriages for mounting the door leaves.
- Guide rails.
- Door stops.
- Clamping profile.
- Door handles.
- Door locks, etc.
Actually, the glass door hardware has its own peculiarities. Firstly, it should be high-quality, reliable, and durable. Secondly, the door hardware should withstand heavy loads because the weight of even a single door leaf can be quite considerable. Finally, such hardware must provide secure fastening with a minimum number of holes.
To fix the glass panels, it is necessary to use clamping profiles located on the floor and on the ceiling. There is no need to cut or drill the glass for its fastening. So it is the main advantage of the clamping profile. Besides, the clamping profile perfectly protects the movable panel against damage due to the use of screws, fixing this profile. That is why the clamping profile is considered to be the most reliable and secure way of glass fastening.
