Gliding patio doors have at least one door panel that glides smoothly past another door panel to save room where you need it—inside or out. With their wide wood profiles, Andersen® A-Series Frenchwood gliding patio doors give your home the old-world character of traditional French doors along with the convenience and space savings no hinged door can provide. And, because they’re Andersen patio doors, they are just as effective in sealing drafts and moisture out of your home.
Glass can affect energy efficiency more than any other part of a window or patio door—and not all glass performs the same. Andersen offers one of the industry’s widest arrays of glass options, enabling you to find the right choice for your climate and your home.
Our Andersen A-Series includes the following glass options, all of which can be enhanced to improve Sound Transmission Control (STC) and make them more burglar resistant:
Satisfies coastal wind-borne debris code requirements, lowers sound transmission, resists forced entry and is energy-efficient. Tempered also available.
Tinted to reduce heat gain from intense sunlight while offering the safety of Low-E4® Impact-Resistant Glass. Tempered also available.
Window grilles offer an extra design touch to enhance any architectural style or express the taste of any homeowner. Andersen® A-Series windows and patio doors offer a variety of grille types and grille patterns, making it easy to fit both your style and your home’s. For a signature look, we’ll work with you to create custom grille designs.
A sample of our patterns for casement windows is shown below. Many more are available. Patterns for other windows or patio doors may differ, depending on product type and size. For details, see your Andersen dealer.
Our A-Series gliding patio door insect screens are available in two configurations: gliding and retractable.
Gliding insect screens feature Delrin® material injected molded bottom rollers with self-contained leveling adjusters.
The retractable insect screen is installed on the exterior of the door and opens side-to-side across the width of the opening. When the insect screen is not in use, it neatly retracts into a small canister.
Optional for all Andersen® gliding patio doors, these special locks provide an extra measure of security when the door is in a locked position. Available finishes coordinate with our door hardware.
A six-pin cylinder lock allows the patio door to be locked and unlocked from the exterior.
An oak or maple threshold finishes the interior sill, and provides a smooth transition from exterior to interior. Maple shown.
Stormwatch® structural enhancements meet most coastal U.S. building code requirements, improve energy efficiency, and resist wear from salt water and storms.
Control your heating and cooling costs by choosing the best type of glass for your climate and performance needs.
