About Sliding Patio Doors

Sliding Glass doors have one or more panels that easily slide open on a track. Also referred to as patio doors or gliding glass doors, they are often used to connect the inside of your home with the recreational outdoor portion like a deck, backyard or patio. The large panels of glass provide plenty of sunlight, wide open views of the outdoors and the screen options deliver an abundance of fresh air. Sliding glass doors save space because the doors do need to swing open and impose on the indoor or outdoor living space.
