Sliding glass doors were embraced as an exciting modern convenience when they were invented in 1950s. Their structure allowed much more light and air to enter the house than with a standard screen door, and they required less space than traditional doors, which necessitate swing area for opening and closing.
Popular sliding glass doors these days have a combination of glass, metal and timber. different styles feature various sized glass panels and for an alternative look, you can pick from a range of handrail options such as metal or wood. These doors are also easy to fit as most are already assembled into a single piece that can then be fixed to the wall and fastened using especially designed fixing brackets.
These upgrades to the glass not only save energy, but cut down acutely on ambient noise. The annoyance of barking dogs, lawn mowers and loud neighbors are a thing of the past. Often, extra sound-control glazing is an option you can add on for even greater noise reduction.
