Glass Panel Garage Doors Open Up Interior Spaces

Apr 06, 2010

Once reserved only for gas stations, warehouses and firehouses, glass garage doors are becoming a popular modern alternative to French doors to seamlessly merge indoor and outdoor living spaces on the homefront.

At the press of a button, these doors are automatically raised, allowing traffic to flow during gatherings. Closed, they create an attractive wall of windows, adding a panoramic view to any living space.

This delicate looking design is anything but. The glass is supported by a durable, commercial grade, rust-proof, aluminum frame that can be custom-painted or sealed with a clear, white or brown finish. Capped tongue-and-groove joints and a vinyl bottom weatherseal keep out the elements.

A variety of window options are available to control the degree of light transmission and privacy including clear, frosted, tinted or mirrored glass or laminate. Concerned about energy efficiency? Opt for insulated glass.

Check out the view.
