Installing a Sliding Glass Door

As interior design trends move towards the aesthetics of modern and contemporary design, the maximization of space becomes more and more of a priority.
Keeping one’s home spacious and open is a priority, and interior designers are using all kinds of techniques to ensure spaces in the home stay open.

One of the ways you can make sure your house feels spacious and inviting is with a sliding door installation. Sliding doors, especially sliding glass doors, are a good choice for several reasons.

Here are just a few of them:

  • Creating privacy:
    If your home has one large room, you can use sliding doors to divide it into more sections.
    Especially if you live in an open concept loft or condo, you can use sliding doors to create several rooms out of your large one—and if you decide to use translucent glass, the flow of light through your home will remain unimpeded.
    You can even get a window replacement at the same time to invite even more natural light into your home.
  • Discreet storage:
    Using a frosted-glass door to hide storage spaces is both stylish and discreet. It’s also a space-saving measure, since sliding doors can lie nearly flush with the wall. You can even choose a door that complements your home’s d├ęcor, making the door a focal point—rather than what lies behind it.
  • Suitable for any room:
    Sliding doors are appropriate in a wide variety of places in your home. For example, if you have a sunroom that gets a lot of natural light, a glass door installation can help illuminate the rest of your house.

People often hide laundry machines behind sliding doors, and home offices and other rooms use them as well.

LAMINATED GLASS for security and safety

LAMINATED GLASS for security and safety

Life can be unpredictable. Everyone is concerned about the safety of homes and families. Unforeseen weather can cause havoc for homeowners. Today’s auto and air traffic mean that the world is an increasingly noisy place.

So taking practical steps to protect your interests is smart. Laminated glass products from Artlook Glass Company can help, offering a level of security and serenity that can’t be realized with ordinary glass.

Safety, security and serenity

Ordinary annealed glass breaks easily. Tempered glass, while stronger, shatters under a greater impact. But laminated glass is different.  Laminated Glass is powerfully resistant to impact. It can provide security from vandalism and deliberate physical attack.  However, if it should break, the glass will tend to remain adhered to the plastic interlayer, minimizing the risk of injury from sharp edges and flying or falling glass pieces.

Our laminated glass is customized to meet the requirements of any security application, providing the best options available.

Acoustic insulation for sound control

The world gets noisier every day. Laminated glass is an effective way to reduce unwanted outside noise.  Laminated glass can also enhance the acoustic properties of a room, reducing echos, improving sound quality, and insulating against sound passing through walls to keep private conversations private, and to prevent noisy outside environments from disturbing occupants. This is achieved through the sound dampening properties of the interlayer, which will vary with the type and thickness of the interlayer.

Adds and protects beauty

Artlook Glass  laminated glass is the answer for beautiful, transparent color. Our laminated glass is available in any color of the rainbow. Laminated glass also blocks harmful ultraviolet rays, protecting home furnishings and artwork from fading and damage.

Our laminated glass will help you add exquisite beauty to residential and commercial spaces, or enhance performance with safety and sound control.
