Stacking and System Configurations
When it comes to design, nothing is standard with Cover Glass USA. We specialize in creating unique, custom systems for our clients, and can work with a variety of angles. There are thus a wide variety of systems we can configure depending upon your projects’ needs.
Shown above are a few examples of some of the frameless glass door systems we have custom built for our clients along with angles we can work with to ensure full closure. More designs available. As depicted, systems can be made to open and stack to either the interior or exterior, and slide to the left or right.
In order to find the best panel width for each system, we typically take the width of the proposed area, and divide it into equal sized panels. We generally recommend staying in between 22″ – 33″, simply due to the increased weight of the door as the panels increase in size. Depending on each individual job’s needs, we do have the ability to create a panel at a minimum of 18″ wide and as wide as 34″.
The maximum/minimum height of our sliding glass panels can be up to 9′ 2″ tall; there is no minimum height per se, but we suggest a minimum of 2′ 6″ H. Our height is limited to 9′ 2″ because without the added structure of a frame at above that height, sometimes the glass will have a tendency to bow. As we want ensure our systems always operate smoothly, we choose to stay safe rather than sorry. Similarly, we recommend a minimum height of about 2′ 6″ tall so our internal operating systems remain fully functionable.
Our standard locking mechanisms are two deadbolts that lock both at the top and bottom of the first opening panel. This provides both an effective lock, and allows for the seamless look of our system to stay uninterrupted. With no floating handles to disrupt the frameless glass feel, the end result provides for exceptionally clear views. Alternatively, if you prefer a handle with key entry access from the outside, or a lock for every panel, we do have both of those options available.
Our standard colors that we always have in stock for our track are black, white, bronze, and silver/aluminum. For an additional charge, we can custom match almost any color based upon your needs.
Depending on your property’s exposure, you may want to use glass that has an additional tint on it, to assist with the level of protection from the rays of the sun. Our standard color is clear, but we also carry a light gray, light bronze, light blue glass, green glass, and a reflective bronze. We have samples of each color available at all our showroom locations for you to determine which color is right for your project. Regardless of your color selection, we always use a Low-E glass, to ensure you and your furniture will be protected from the sun.
