Unbelievable Facts About two types of Internal Glass Sliding Doors

In some way or another, Internal glass sliding doors must be one of the most commonly adopted architectural elements in new buildings and renovations. Beyond opening the house’s interior to the outside world, glass doors enrich the experience, increase ventilation and maximize natural light. And although they are, by default, translucent, they can also be show-stoppers for their ability to blur the distinctions between indoors and outdoors.

Internal glass sliding doors come in some designs and mechanisms, from sliding and hinging to folding, pivoting and piling, and more. But how do you decide which glass doors are better fit for your home? Here, we consider six types of glass doors and their clear-cut advantages.

Single door hinged

The hinged door is the most common choice, with a swivel hinge on one side of the door frame, causing the other side of the entrance to swing open from the wall. A single-hinged door can be opened inwards, outwards or both, and can be used internally or externally.

  • The hinged doors may be framed or frameless and, as these two photographs illustrate, each has a somewhat different appearance. The choice of door handle also leads to the overall look and design of the door.

  • Hinged doors can be used to optimize the space of a small opening, and are a reasonable choice if there is no place for stacked or folded doors to be mounted. Note, though, that they would need a clear space in front of them equal to the entrance’s width.

  • Hinged doors come in a range of sizes, but the structural frame and hinges would need to withstand the door’s weight as it is opened.

French doorways

The French doors are essentially a pair of single-hinged doors that open from each other. Traditionally, they’ve got several wood-framed glass panels, and they swing inward, but now, everything’s going on. Used for both indoor and outside doors, they offer an elegant transition between rooms and spaces.


  • French doors cover a broader gap than a single door, and the space needed in front of the opening is halved, with just the width of one door, not the entire foundational.

  • Like lone doors, they can be used to optimize the opening space.

French doors are most commonly framed in oak, aluminium, PVC or fibreglass
