Sliding Glass Doors ... Aluminum or Fiberglass?

Elizabeth Williams
2 months ago

I'm building a home in Hawaii and I feel like I'm going in circles regarding the type of material for sliding glass doors.


Fiberglass

or

Aluminum?


What are the best brands? We have a very large budget for this project.



I'm looking for the following:

. Thin, modern frames, w/ modern/contemporary handles

. 2 panel sliding doors, size: 8’ W x 9’ H .

. Must have sliding bug screen panel option

. No particular need for thermal rating or air tight. There is no A/C (75 degrees year round)

. No particular wet rating. All sliding doors are under 10’ long lanai roofing, so rain will (rarely) reach.
