Important Qualities for Sliding Doors

Important Qualities for Sliding Doors

by Alistaire Chang

The door industry is rife with impostors who would sell you a small sliding door that bends and cracks on wimpy hardware and poor track systems. Those companies will leave you with a door that does not open or close properly within the first year. Moreover, their doors are not straight from the start, they are more prone to warping over time, and they are too heavy for proper use. With those types of doors you will destroy your expensive door hardware and the precious door frame, door jambs, and moulding around the door.

That is why we absolutely advise you to do your homework before you buy a large sliding door.

First of all, it is important to keep in mind that doors need to be large to impress people. If you use a small door for your high end residential or commercial application, customers and visitor. Large doors are better. There is no question about it, but they do present challenges of their own, which people don’t always think about before purchasing. Most companies will sell you a door that is not built in the proper way to accommodate larger opening.

We have found a better way to build this. Our doors are guaranteed. Many other companies call this “Mission Impossible.” No one else can do this. But we can do it!


Door Weight

We have found that to make a door that lasts 50 or 100 years, you must start with the best door cores. The core is so important, because door cores offer structural reinforcement and can dramatically change the weight of the door. That is why hollow core doors have become so prevalent in the last century. Doors can be lighter with hollow, but the price is strength and dimensional stability. Hollow core doors can be pushed through with a finger. They are also highly prone to warping, twisting, and skewing, because they have no solid matter inside the door to prevent these kinds of defects.

Our doors have material all the way through. There are no void areas inside the door to compromise structural strength and stability. That is one reason our doors can be so much larger and stronger than competing door. We’re also the only company that can offer you a 50 Year Guarantee with our professional grade product.

With our patented and patent pending design, we make doors that are lighter than the competition. All companies realize that one of the greatest problems of large sliding doors is excessive weight that causes problems with the hardware, door jamb, door frame, and areas around the door.
