Sliding Glass Doors

When you think of Southwestern living, you think of relaxing outdoor living spaces with patios, pools, barbeques and dining areas. You imagine enjoying good times with family and friends against a backdrop of beautiful desert landscapes, sunrises and sunsets. Many projects connect its outdoor spaces to its sliding patio doors. However, patio doors can be a significant drain on the monthly energy bills as old, inefficient windows allow radiant summer heat in and cool, conditioned air to escape. That’s why American Openings has designed its patio doors with modern, energy-efficient sliding doors.

All American openings sliding patio doors are manufactured at our Tucson, Arizona facility and designed to withstand the extreme climate of Arizona. We use only high-quality components, 100% of which are made in the USA. Our energy-efficient sliding patio doors are constructed of two panes of glass, specially selected to keep out harmful UV rays and minimize solar heat transfer. The outer pane uses specially tinted Low-E glass to let the light in but keep the heat and certain UV rays out. The two panes are separated by a highly energy efficient, Envirosealed Windows spacer to minimize heat transfer along the glass edges. We then fill the space with an inert argon gas to further improve the heat transfer characteristics of the window.

We frame our sliding patio doors with either high quality aluminum or vinyl. We offer aluminum frames in three colors: bronze, sandstone or white. Vinyl frames come in two colors: white or tan. Vinyl has superior thermal insulation characteristics and is wider in dimension than aluminum. Aluminum frames take up less of the window’s viewing space and have superior noise-reducing characteristics.

Any of our sliding patio doors can be built to be an AMERISECURE shatter proof security door. Why pay for expensive and unsightly iron bars or screens when you ensure your project is secure with AMERISECURE.
