What is a Sliding Glass Door


A sliding glass door, a so-called patio door or a sliding door partition, is a type of sliding door in architecture and construction that is essentially a large glass window opening. This type of door is popular in designs that provide access from the room to the street, to the fresh air of the inner courtyard, or to abundant natural lighting.

A sliding glass door is usually considered as a whole, consisting of two sections of the panel, one of which is fixed and the other is movable for opening.
In fact, the sliding door is a movable rectangular frame sheet of window glass, which is mounted parallel to the similar and usually fixed frame of the adjacent glass partition. The movable panel slides along a fixed track in a plane parallel to the adjacent fixed panel.

With a different design, the so-called pocket glass door, the door has one or more panels that can be moved and inserted into the wall pockets, completely “disappearing” when the door to the room or to the fresh air is wide open.

A sliding glass door was introduced as an important element of international style architecture in Europe and North America before the Second World War. The postwar construction boom in modernist and modern styles of the mid-century, as well as in suburban ranch-style houses, apartment buildings and hotel-motel networks, made sliding glass doors a standard element in the construction of residential and hotel buildings in many regions. They are used in themed and modern restaurants, residences, Japanese teahouses, and other situations.
