All you wanted to know about frameless glass doors

Frameless glass doors are the latest development in home building and renovation. More and more home owners are opting for them as these glass doors help add a modern touch to their home interiors and allow for virtually uninterrupted outside views and maximum penetration of natural light, making their homes warm and cosy and spacious too.

For the uninitiated, frameless glass doors as the name suggests are completely frameless which provide unobstructed views, whether open or closed. These doors do not use the conventional method of bi-folding or French doors. Instead the frameless doors slide across an aluminum rail one by one to either side of the opening, and then one by one they pivot and stack to the side. They slide, pivot, and stack in a manner similar to the bi-folding doors but unlike them, they have no hinges for keeping the panels joined together.

Frameless glass doors are of two types-single glazed doors and double glazed doors. Single glazed frameless glass doors consist of a durable and tough tempered glass panel and double glazed doors are comprised of opaque sealed unit approximately 20mm thick which is sealed around the glass panel.

Single glazed frameless doors are usually not considered a reliable option for patios but are ideal for use as room dividers since they guarantee maximum light flow inside the room and prevent noise flow from getting inside and out of the room. They are also used for external purposes, such as balcony enclosures, conservatory doors and on outbuildings.

Double glazed frameless doors do not provide as uninterrupted a view as their single glazed counterparts but are used largely due to their weather proof nature. These doors use a compression lock on the side of the system which helps compress each panel of glass tightly together. When the unit is compressed together, the glass panel which includes a clear plastic spacer makes the gaps weather proof. It is due to this that double glazed frameless glass doors are used for patios and for many other external purposes.

Depending on the purpose and location, one can choose between single glazed and double glazed frameless doors. Irrespective of their unique mechanism and versatility, these doors do not come with a hefty price tag which has further contributed towards their growing popularity and massive use in homes and offices alike.
