Types of Sliding Doors
There are two common types of sliding doors, traditional sliding and multi-slide patio doors. The door you choose will depend on the style you are looking for and the amount of space you have to install the door, along with your climate and performance needs. Both the sliding and multi-slide doors come in a variety of finishes that make it simple to find the sliding door to match your home style.
Multi-Slide Patio Door
Multi-slide patio doors are ideal if you have a large space with a lot of natural light and a picturesque view. The multi-slide door is available in Pella’s Architect Series that offers a variety of styles and features including the ability to configure up to 10 panels. The Architect Series can be configured at a 90-degree corner, curves or a straight line. They can also be configured to different openings like manual or automatic and panels that can travel from either side or a center opening.
Traditional Sliding Patio Doors
The traditional sliding patio door fits a variety of needs and home design styles. These doors come in a range of styles to fit not only your style but your budget.
With the Architect Series product, you can choose your style and your color from a variety of options. Available in both traditional and contemporary styles, you can find the right style that will match your home. This series is available in different wood finishes, so if you don't find the finish to match your home, you can paint it to match.
The Pella Designer Series® offers features like built-in blinds between the panes to bring style together with convenience. Designer series is available in the same colors/finishes as the Architect Series collection.
