How do sliding glass doors work?

1. sliding door leaf:
The sliding door leaf is the central element of a sliding glass door. It is made of tempered safety glass, available in a variety of finishes. Clear or frosted variants offer different degrees of transparency. Additionally, the door panel can be customized with different decors, patterns or even colors. This can affect both privacy and the overall aesthetic appearance of the interior.

2. sliding door track:
The track holds the structure and allows the glass door to move. This rail can be integrated in several ways: Either minimalist concealed or visible as a decorative element. It is usually made of aluminum or stainless steel to ensure a solid load-bearing capacity. The rail with integrated runners allows the sliding door leaf to slide smoothly and contributes to the overall functionality of the structure.

3. sliding door handle:
Whether it is a handle bar or a discreet handle shell, the door handle allows the sliding door to open and close effortlessly. This detail contributes to the overall appearance of the glass door and can also affect the overall look of the room.

Glass sliding doors are good?

Yes, because they have numerous advantages. Sliding glass doors ...

  • let daylight into every room.
  • do not have a swing area and therefore save space
  • are a stylish and elegant way of separating or connecting rooms
  • are ideal for barrier-free living.
  • do not do not close in draughts - for relaxed ventilation
  • allow larger dimensions than hinged doors
  • can disappear behind furniture
  • create new practical spaces - from the study to the walk-in closet

Stylish design - Perfect technology

Unmistakable design meets technology of the highest quality. Open Glass sliding door systems exude a touch of loft character and, especially as double-leaf variants, look like spacious portals. Closed models, on the other hand, are Clear-cut and discreet. The mechanism is concealed inside. They are available in Stainless steel or Aluminium and with a wide Width of variants.

The new Black

We have equipped the PLANEO 120 sliding door fitting with additional room solution options. In the range are also available skylights, side elements and much more. In addition, PLANEO 120 is also available in "Graphite black" finish. All variants are available with Soft-Close. This means that the Glass sliding door does not hit, but is gently retracted into the locking position: little things that simply offer more living comfort. All models can also be realized room-high.

Space-saving miracle

Cleverly thought-out solutions allow rooms to be adapted to individual living requirements without the need for additional walls. Apartments can be visually enlarged by means of long sight lines. The best way to do this is with glass sliding doors, because they open up rooms - unlike opaque wooden sliding doors, for example. Glass sliding doors, for example, open up a view of the living area from the hallway. And the small side room facing the backyard benefits from daylight from the sunny south side.

For example, consider the possibility of connecting the dining room with the living room or kitchen by replacing the old Wooden doors with light-filled Glass sliding doors. Even in old apartments, you can go for an open floor plan and let the daylight from the sunny south side flow into neighboring rooms.

Sliding door complete set: tailored to your needs

At GRIFFWERK, you can easily put together your individual complete sliding door set with the help of our experts.

If you have particularly limited space available, a sliding glass door is the perfect choice as, unlike hinged doors, it does not need to swing into the room. The sliding glass door runs along the wall to save space. Even complicated installation situations can be easily mastered with sliding glass doors, because at GRIFFWERK you can find almost any special dimensions you require online. Our specialist retail partners will be happy to help you determine the right dimensions - conveniently for your selected model or desired model. You can also select the right sliding door fitting there - also as a sliding door fitting set.

Glass sliding door set: But please room high!

If you can, you can afford room height; the higher, the better. It's nice when the doors also use the entire height. Full-height all-glass doors make the most impressive impression. All our models are therefore available in custom sizes. Your specialist dealer will advise you on the right dimensions and fittings. They will also know which door weights and hinges are suitable for your selection, as large doors weigh more - and should not sag later. High-quality equipment details such as drill hole adapters in the hinges for hinged doors stabilize large doors. At GRIFFWERK, the matching adapters are available with the hinged door fittings - simply research online on our website, find a dealer, done.

More harmony with skylights

Those who do not want continuous door heights, choose a solution with skylights. Skylights are transparent areas above the door, usually divided by a cross frame. The standard dimensions are thereby visually opened to the top. This is a trick to include the design reference to other doors with normal height.

Optimize floor plans

Glass doors open up rooms, allow wide views and make living areas look brighter and larger. They are therefore ideal for changing floor plans during renovations, for example. In new buildings, on the other hand, floor plans that connect different functional areas - such as the entrance and living area or kitchen and dining room - are gaining ground. Interior doors made of glass then create room boundaries that act as a vestibule or provide privacy. White, Satin frosted glass or frosted glass provide maximum brightness and a spacious living feeling.

The advantages of sliding glass doors

Design your rooms more efficiently and create a bright living space. Here are some tips on how to optimize a floor plan with sliding glass doors:

  • Improved lighting conditions in all rooms: With glass doors, daylight from surrounding windows also enters adjacent rooms.
  • Connecting indoor and outdoor areas: A sliding door offers the ideal opportunity to connect the interior with the exterior. Ideally, you should place them opposite terraces, balconies or the garden to create a smooth transition between indoors and outdoors.
  • Increase the appearance of space: Sliding glass doors can visually enlarge the space by creating a transparent barrier between different areas. This is particularly useful in small apartments.
  • Separate rooms: Use sliding glass doors to discreetly separate areas in an open floor plan without compromising the visual connection.
  • Room division: Sliding glass doors can be used to divide a large room into smaller, more functional areas. This can be helpful in homes, offices or even commercial establishments such as restaurants.
  • Accentuation: A sliding door can serve as a design element. Choose frames, handles and embellishments that match the style of the room.
  • Optimize the furniture layout: Plan the layout of the room with the sliding door movement in mind. Make sure that the placement of the furniture does not hinder the movement of the door.
  • Privacy: Consider how much privacy you want in certain areas. Options such as tinted glass, frosted glass or opaque film, can ensure privacy without compromising light transmission.
  • Maintenance and care: Remember that glass surfaces can show fingerprints and dirt. Keep sliding glass doors clean to maintain their transparency and attractiveness.
  • Safety: Pay attention to the safety of sliding glass doors, especially if they are large. Go for toughened safety glass and make sure that the sliding mechanisms work properly.

Sliding door: Perfect for the home office

Even in smaller apartments, you can transform previously unused adjoining rooms into attractive, light-flooded workrooms with the help of glass room doors. With a glass sliding door, you can discreetly separate your home office from the rest of the living area. You decide how much privacy and sound protection you need:

  • Opaque models such as Piano White offer maximum privacy.
  • Translucent glass also provides a high level of privacy, but allows light to pass through.
  • If you like a spacious loft character, opt for more transparency and double-leaf doors.

Wood room doors can be easily replaced with a Glass door. Sliding doors can even be installed over existing frames. By default, your Glass sliding door is made of toughened safety glass (tempered safety glass). On request, it can also be made with laminated safety glass (Laminated glass glass).

Sliding doors: FAQ

What is the cost of a sliding door?

The price of a sliding door depends on how big it is, whether it is single or double-leaf and what glass is used. A single-wing door in the simplest version can be obtained from about 100 euros glass + 250 euros hardware, whereas a double-wing sliding door with digital printing decoration can sometimes cost more than 1,000 euros. 

How tight are sliding doors?

Sound as well as kitchen odours, water vapour and draughts are kept out by the tightly closing PLANEO AIR SILENT sliding door system from GRIFFWERK. The seal is made possible by laterally attached rubber lips and a floor brush. Both elements are integrated into the surrounding aluminium profile and blend into the purist design. The door reveal remains unchanged. PLANEO AIR SILENT is comparable to a wooden door in terms of sound insulation.

Who installs a sliding door?

You can install sliding doors yourself. We tell you how to do this in the section "How are sliding doors installed? Alternatively, you can also commission a specialist with the installation. Dealers who sell Griffwerk products often offer an installation service. The specialist will then come to your home and professionally install the sliding door for you. If, despite careful work, faults occur, there is usually a guarantee that these will be rectified as quickly as possible, free of charge. The installation service is a quick way to achieve the perfect sliding door, especially for physically impaired people or people who are not very skilled.

How wide are sliding doors?

935mm x 2058mm x 8mm (width x height x depth). This is the typical standard size for sliding doors. Other standard dimensions are 1060x2085x8 mm and 935x2183x8 mm. Glass doors are also available in special sizes.

How much space does a sliding door need?

Sliding doors are more space-saving than swinging doors because the swinging range of the door does not have to be considered. Wall-integrated sliding doors save a particularly large amount of space because they disappear into the wall and thus do not take up any space for the door leaf. However, the wall should be thick enough to enclose the sliding door. Exterior sliding doors require a little more space. Tip: You should plan the thickness of the sliding door system along the wall for this.

What types of sliding door are there?

There are different types of sliding doors, such as rail sliding doors, flush sliding doors, and wall or ceiling sliding doors.

How well do sliding doors close?

GRIFFWERK sliding doors with the PLANEO AIR SILENT system close almost airtight. This prevents water vapor or strong smells - e.g. after cooking - from entering the next room. You don't have to worry about drafts either. In addition, sliding doors of this design offer good protection against noise - comparable to the soundproofing of a wooden door.
