Patio Sliding Door

 

Sierra Pacific Patio Sliding Doors create a graceful transition from your indoor to outdoor living areas. While providing the perfect solution for a space-saving opening, these doors also optimize your view and allow your home to fill with warm sunlight.

Secure and durable as they are beautiful, our Patio Sliding Doors feature a multi-point locking system for optimum security and weather resistance. Our gear mechanism is made from corrosion-resistant 300 Series Stainless Steel and our locking system has passed the most stringent forced entry requirements.

Our doors feature solid brass forged handles and escutcheon plates for strength, durability and a smooth, blemish-free surface. Available in a variety of finishes, our handles and escutcheons complement virtually any design scheme.

Frame and panel components are manufactured from kiln-dried preservative treated Douglas Fir. Ponderosa pine is available as an option. Interior surfaces are unfinished clear wood ready to prep for stain or paint. An optional factory applied interior primer coat is available.

Panel stiles and rails are 1 3/4" thick kiln-dried, preservative treated Douglas Fir. Ponderosa pine is available as an option. Top and bottom rails are solid material and engineered for strength and stability. The stiles on our operable panels are made of LVL material, while our fixed panels have engineered stiles. Stiles and top rail are 4 5/8". Bottom rails are 6 13/16" wide.

Patio Sliding Door Frame & Panel

 

All exposed exterior surfaces of our frame head and jambs are covered with .062" extruded aluminum.

Extruded aluminum frame corners are sealed with silicone and foam pads and mechanically fastened. Specially designed, glass filled nylon sill plugs at the bottom corners afford excellent moisture protection for the side jambs. A continuous extruded aluminum nailing flange is an integral part of the frame extrusion. The exterior of the frame clad is designed to accept retrofit trim systems or clad brickmould.

Panels are covered with .075" extruded aluminum.

Wood exterior units are available with either a factory applied latex primer or clear Douglas Fir. All wood exterior units with exterior trim feature factory applied flexible flashing on sides and head.

Patio sliding door features a thermally efficient, pultruded fiberglass sill in bronze tone with an interior oak stop.

The extruded aluminum clad exterior on Sierra Pacific windows and doors features a finish composed of durable 100% flouropolymer powder coating thermoset to meet AAMA 2605 standards. Powder coatings are more friendly to the environment than liquid coatings for many reasons, including:

  • Powder coatings emit near-zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Liquid coatings are a major source of man-made VOCs.
  • The application of liquid coatings requires additional energy usage to operate the thermal oxidizers and scrubbers necessary to lower the VOC emissions generated during the wet paint process.
  • Powder is solvent free. Application of powder does not require the use of solvents necessary in liquid coating applications.
  • Powder coating is an EPA recommended finishing system, contributing to the Green Building Initiative.
  • Powder coated finishes have more surface hardness and scratch resistance than common liquid coatings.

Choosing the Correct Glazing System

Today’s architecture features ever increasing expanses of glass to capture views and allow natural light to illuminate interiors. Choosing the correct glazing system (the glass and the spacer between the panes of glass) for your climate, exposure and architectural design is one of the most important decisions you will make during the construction process. Sierra Pacific’s advanced glazing system features a 100% polymer structural foam spacer by Quanex, (the world’s only NO-Metal Warm Edge insulating glass spacer) paired with high-performance, spectrally-selective low-E glass.

Warm Edge

In order to overcome the thermal inefficiency of conventional aluminum window spacers, a new type of spacer product called warm edge technology has evolved in the window industry. Warm Edge refers to the type of spacer material used to separate the panes of glass in an insulated window unit. If the material conducts less heat or cold at the edge of the glass than a conventional aluminum spacer, it is said to be "warm-edge." Most of these newer window spacers are less conductive and outperform pure aluminum. But there’s still one small problem -- they all contain some kind of metal. And metal is highly conductive. Unlike other so-called "warm" edge spacers that contain steel or aluminum wrapped in butyl rubber, the Quanex spacer is made of 100% polymer structural foam. The NO-Metal formula conducts less heat and cold than conventional metal spacers and provides the warmest possible edge.

The NO-Metal Warm Edge:

Quanex TrueWARM Spacer
  • Assures comfortable humidity levels and reduces worries about condensation and mold
  • Resists window condensation
  • Reduces energy costs
  • Provides long-life durability
  • Reduces outside noise transmittance
  • Structural thermoset foam spacer reduces the stress on the system therefore reducing stress on the glass which results in less stress cracks and reduces stress on the sealant increasing sealant effectiveness
  • Globally tested and proven spacer system

Ideal Glass Performance

The insulating effect of your windows has a direct impact on the comfort factor inside your home or commercial building. Typically 75% of the exposed surface of a window is glass, and the temperature of the interior surface of the glass directly affects the air temperature in the room. The better insulated the glass, the more comfortable the room. Sierra Pacific offers many glass options, including energy efficient, spectrally-selective low-E insulated glass, tinted, obscure and specialty glazings.

See our Technical Section for NFRC Thermal Performance Data

High Performance Double Coat Low-E Insulated Glass

Reduce Heating and Cooling Loads
High performance insulated glass with two low-E coatings blocks more solar heat than ordinary low-E and clear glass. The oppressive heat of the sun is composed of visible light and invisible infrared energy. Insulated glass produced with two low-E coatings allows the daylight to pass through the glass and filters out solar heat. In fact, it blocks a large percentage of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays and delivers a performance improvement in winter nighttime insulation (R-value) compared to non-coated air-filled insulating glass.

High Performance Triple Coat Low-E

Insulated Glass
Insulated glass with three low-E coatings delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility. This glass provides year-round comfort and energy savings, making it a good option no matter where you live. The secret is a triple layer of silver in the coating stack. It is formulated to reject solar heat while maintaining attractive visibility. It keeps the heat out while letting light in.

 

Sierra Pacific also offers a wide variety of glazing options to meet your requirements including: Additional Glazing Options

Our interior simulite bars are made from clear Ponderosa Pine or Douglas Fir and are available in either Colonial or Contemporary profiles in three widths: 7/8", 1 5/16" or 2".
