Features of Folding Glass Doors:
Top Hung System
As a top hung glass manufacturer, our system relies on sturdy tracks or beams concealed in the ceiling in order to support the weight of the door beneath. The effortless gliding motion of our frameless glass makes opening, stacking and closing a breeze.
Since the wheel assembly of a top hung system remains fully enclosed inside the track, gravity sees to it that the mechanism stays clean and dirt-free thanks to its suspended state. Maintenance of a top hung slider is quite straightforward, with the boxed-in design allowing easy access to wheels and bearing sub-assemblies when necessary.
Another benefit to top hung frameless sliding glass doors is the ability to set the tracks into a foundation, completely flush with the floor surface. That means no more tripping over unseen ledges and worrying about cleaning nooks and crannies.
Continuous Glass Doors
With no vertical frames between our frameless glass, you will enjoy a new level of clarity that few homeowners experience in today. We use UV protected translucent polycarbonate channel, which directly interlocks and tightly seals into the next panel.
Flexible Track Design
With a unique specialization in creating custom openings for clients, we’re able to install frameless sliding glass doors in a variety of interior and exterior locations. At Cover Glass, the only limitation is your imagination.
Flexibility and functionality are at the forefront of what makes our folding glass doors such a special product. Because each glass panel slides individually, you will have the seamless ability to open the glass system entirely, create air gaps for natural ventilation, open one panel, combine two panels in the center–the choice is yours.
Internal Locking Hardware
Our standard locking hardware is much more robust than what you find in other frameless glass doors.
We use two deadbolts: one at the top and one at the bottom of the first opening panel. Unlike other glass door systems, there are no floating handles, which means that it is virtually impossible to enter from the outside.
We also provide nonstandard options for clients that favor a handle or want key entry access from the exterior. Another choice is a lock on every panel.
You can pick the solution you feel the most comfortable with for security reasons and to match your lifestyle.
Once the system is opened and stacked, we make sure our panels remain stacked thanks to magnetized technology on each of glass panel. This prevents the frameless glass doors from moving out of place if a strong gust of wind comes, or if anyone happens to walk into them if not paying attention.
