If you have a gorgeous outdoor space, you need the perfect patio door to set the tone and create an inviting entrance for you and your guests.
Usually, the decision comes down to terrace doors, which open and close via hinges, or sliding patio doors, which open and shut horizontally along a sliding track.
While these doors can be more expensive than the typical single exterior door, the payoff is usually 100% worth it.
What Are Sliding Patio Doors
Traditionally, sliding doors consist of two large glass panels; one panel remains fixed and the other slides open and closed, providing a wide entrance to a yard, patio, or deck.
Polar Windows sliding patio door is made from high-performance PVC material. PVC is an excellent choice for sliding patio doors. It is exceptionally energy efficient – complete with all the benefits of our Window Powered Home Technology™ including Power Glass™, Gold Power Spacer™ insulated frame.
Patio doors are an attractive door style, incorporating a generous amount of window space to allow access to and from a lovely landscaped space. Typically, they open directly onto a deck, patio or garden. There are usually two options for an exterior entrance to a yard space: sliding patio doors or terrace doors.
Terrace doors are a good option for a smaller room, to conserve wall space, or because you simply enjoy their elegant appearance.
What are Terrace Doors?
Terrace doors, also called patio or garden doors, can come in a variety of sizes, materials, and colors. Polar Windows terrace door units are custom designed to fit any opening, with the option to select an inswing or outswing door as well as having the ability to choose to have your stationary door become a venting opening. In most cases, they are dominated by window space, which allows natural light to come in and provides an inviting view of your outdoor space.
