There are so many different reasons why it makes sense to add a sliding glass door to your conservatory, summer house or glass room, and we’re going to talk you through some of the main advantages right now!
There’s a certain hint of elegance and sophistication that comes from a sliding door, especially when added to an already beautiful conservatory or glass room. Why not choose a glass sliding door with minimal framing for a more streamlined look? You can then have nice views in and out of the conservatory without any heavy or bulk framework getting in the way.
There’s no doubt about it, having a sliding door will save you a good amount of space. You’re probably wondering how a door can help you enjoy more space and here’s the scoop; they operate without a hinge meaning they simply glide along a track instead of swinging open. So one huge advantage is that no extra space is required for the door arc because they simply open up by one door sliding over another panel.Advantages of installing sliding glass doors to your home’s conservatory or glass room.
Another big advantage worth mentioning is that you get an abundance of natural light, which can in turn play a small role in reducing your energy bills. More light is able to spread inside the conservatory or glass room with sliding glass doors so this means you won’t have to turn the light bulb on when the evenings gradually get darker because there will still be plenty of light in the rom thanks to the panel of glass from the sliding glass door.
Quick and easy access
No door should be too difficult to open and for many who are looking to relax or unwind in their conservatory, a seamless entry is important. Whether you’re going out to the back garden or in to the living room, a sliding glass door can play a big role in giving you swift and easy access. They’re light so you only need to gently slide the door open, rather than having to twist a handle and open out a weighty door. Glass sliding doors are all about working elegantly, so it should feel like something even the Queen would be proud of.
The glazing is of course important with a sliding glass door, and thankfully, most designs today feature energy efficient glazing, which prevents heat from escaping, whilst offering good acoustic insulation. You also don’t have to worry about frost and condensation on the glass in the winter months if you choose glass doors which feature good quality energy efficient glazing.
The last advantage we’d like to talk about is security. Not many people would think a glass sliding door is very strong or durable and some might even believe it’s very easy to shatter, however, this is not often the case if you choose a door that incorporates gaskets, aluminium seals and fixed leaves where these elements meet.
