Thanks to advanced, high-performing glass packages, your Architectural Series sliding patio doors can help lower energy bills, increase comfort, dramatically reduce unwanted noise from entering your home and make your home more secure.
- Standard High Performance HP glass package features a Low-E coating that deflects heat in the summer to help with cooling and keeps warmed air inside during the winter. It also helps protect your furniture and flooring from fading caused by damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays.
- Standard Argon gas, which is six times denser than air, is sealed between the glass panes to increase insulation and reduce energy loss.
- Specifically designed to deliver maximum energy-efficiency for warmer regions, the HPSC glass package with specialty Low-E glass and Argon reduces solar heat gain and cooling costs.
- The HPMax triple-pane glass package has two separate airspaces for maximum insulation.
WARM EDGE SPACER SYSTEMS
The Warm Edge spacer system features a U-shaped channel that separates the glass panes and interrupts the natural flow of heat to cold. It also flexes when the glass expands and contracts to help maintain a strong seal.
Optional Warm Edge+ spacer systems are made of less-conductive materials for increased energy performance and added strength to better resist seal failure.
THE ENERGY STAR PROGRAM
Architectural Series sliding patio doors can be ordered to meet ENERGY STAR guidelines for where you live.
ADDITIONAL GLASS OPTIONS
- Impact-resistant laminated glass with a durable interlayer sealed between two layers of glass, increases energy efficiency, sound control and protection against forced entry and damaging UV rays.
- Hard to break tempered glass increases safety because it is harder to break through than regular glass and safely breaks into pebbles.
Acoustic glass packages can reduce unwanted noise from entering your home by up to 50%.
Patterned obscure glass offers added privacy while still allowing natural daylight through.
Control solar heat gain, reduce glare and visibility into your home with bronze or gray tinted glass.
For maximum thermal efficiency, optional triple-pane glass creates two separate air spaces for superior insulation.
Accentuate your home’s design with architecturally inspired grille profiles and patterns. Grilles between the glass (GBG) provide a smooth, easy-to-clean surface, while simulated divided lites (SDL) feature the look of an authentic multi-lite window.
Crafted to be both durable and beautiful, Architectural Series sliding patio door hardware is available in a variety of finishes to complement your home’s design while providing an effective barrier against forced entry.
