Patio doors act as vanity accents for curb appeal and insulating pieces for energy efficiency. They also help keep your home secure. If you’re planning for new patio doors, make sure that they are durable enough to withstand elements and more. Renewal by Andersen® of Denver shares practical tips on choosing the right units for your home.
Invest in Sturdy Frames
Good patio doors don’t move when you apply pressure to them. They also don’t have sizable gaps around the frames. At Renewal by Andersen, all of our doors are tough on harsh elements and keep unwanted guests at bay. They come with thick, heavy, and robust exterior wood panels and create a tight seal when locked properly.
Look for a Durable Locking System
Patio doors should come with durable hardware to ensure safety all year long. Our hinged French doors, for example, have a five-point locking system for added protection. Apart from the over-one-inch deadbolt that secures the doors, pulling the handle up releases two hooks from one panel, which then clamps onto the other. Furthermore, raising the other panel’s handle pulls out two over-one-inch pins located at the top and the bottom. This fastens both into the threshold and the header.
Add More Security Measures
At Renewal by Andersen of Denver, we provide optional locks for extra safety measures. On top of the unique reach-out locking system for our gliding doors, you can also add auxiliary foot and exterior keyed locks. Rest assured that your new units will keep you and your family safe.
