1. Natural lighting — Sliding patio doors have large glass areas that allow more natural light into your home. Natural lighting has many benefits: it helps make your home look more cheerful and spacious and reduce your electrical lighting during the day. It also helps promote healthy hours of sleep: daily exposure to daytime-nighttime cycles can help regulate your circadian rhythms or body clock.

2. Space saver — Sliding patio doors do not require space to swing open, which makes it ideal for homes with limited space, or if you need more flexibility with your furniture arrangement. If you have a traditional style home—which typically has hinged French doors—but want the space-saving benefits of sliding doors, consider sliding French doors. It combines the aesthetic options of traditional French doors with the space-saving benefits of sliding doors.

3. Easy operation — Sliding door sashes slide on tracks at the bottom of the frame, which eliminates the push-and-pull action required for standard hinged doors. Sliding doors make it easier to open and close for people with limited use of their hands. Our sliding doors are even better to use thanks to adjustable self-lubricating tandem rollers that use steel wheels with ball bearings.

4. Energy efficiency — The combination of insulated frame materials and our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass makes our sliding patio doors the most energy-efficient options on the market. When closed, our sliding patio doors allow minimal heat and air leaks, which would otherwise lead to higher indoor cooling and heating requirements. Also, our sliding patio doors feature a reach-out lock system that helps keep the door secure. It also keeps the sashes in place which helps avoid gaps between frame and sash.
