Overview

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.


Tax Credit: If you've installed Andersen® windows or doors in 2012 or plan to in 2013, you may qualify for the 2012-13 Tax Credit for Qualified Energy Efficient Improvements. Read more to determine if you are eligible.

Glass Options

Glass can affect energy efficiency more than any other part of a window or patio door—and not all glass performs the same. Some types of glass do a better job at insulating your home; others provide greater clarity. You can even choose glass to filter out specific kinds of light. 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. 

All of the glass options below can be enhanced to improve Sound Transmission Control (STC) and make them more burglar resistant.

  • Low-E4 Tempered Glass
    Outstanding overall thermal performance for climates where both heating and cooling costs are a concern. Standard.
  • Low-E4® Sun Tempered Glass
    Outstanding thermal performance in southern climates where less solar heat gain is desired.
  • Low-E4® SmartSun™ Tempered Glass
    Superior solar control glass that offers high visibility.

Strength Options

Tempered glass is standard on all A-Series doors and is available on all A-Series windows. All Low-E4® glass options are available with laminated, impact-resistant glass. Doors are also available with monolithic, impact-resistant glass. Other glass options are also available; see your Andersen® dealer for details.

    Satisfies coastal wind-borne debris code requirements, lowers sound transmission, resists forced entry and is energy-efficient. Tempered also available.

  • Low-E4® SmartSun™ Impact-Resistant Glass
