Custom sliding doors wall thickness

Sliding doors are mainly composed of profiles, glass, and hardware. Many merchants report wall thickness that is much different from the actual wall thickness, often resulting in insufficient strength of the product. In fact, there are mandatory standards for the wall thickness of custom sliding doors. For areas such as balconies, a wall thickness of 2.0mm or more is required. Of course, if the balcony is enclosed, the wind pressure resistance and wall thickness do not need to be considered, and can be appropriately reduced. When choosing profiles for customized sliding doors, it is important to select native aluminum as the material, which has the strength and oxide film that meets industry standards. Some doors and windows use hollow tempered glass, which has greater sound insulation and wind pressure resistance.

Processing of custom sliding doors

Aside from the quality of the raw materials, the processing of sliding doors is also very important. It is known that products assembled similar to this require manual operation. High-quality heavy sliding doors with fine processing, smooth cutting lines, consistent angles (the main frame material is usually at 45 degrees or 90 degrees), will have smooth intersections between parts and smooth lock openings. If there is improper processing or assembly, the product can experience sealing problems. In addition to air and water leaks, glass may explode or separate under strong wind and external force, resulting in damage, including property damage and personal injury. Therefore, the processing steps for custom sliding doors should not be ignored.

Performance of custom sliding doors

Sound Insulation

This mainly depends on the sound insulation effect of the sealed double-glazed glass, as well as the structure of other special sound insulation air-tight strips, the opening and closing force, heat insulation property, and the durability of other door and window accessories such as nylon guide wheels and open-close locks.

Air Tightness

The air tightness mainly depends on the tightness of the door leaf and the outer frame structure, whether the sliding door is tightly closed, and whether it is airtight when completely shut.


This mainly depends on the material selection of heavy-duty custom sliding doors. Will it withstand high pressure?

Water Tightness 

This mainly tests whether there is water accumulation or leakage in heavy-duty custom sliding doors.

For young people nowadays, sliding doors not only need to have high quality and performance, but the product style is also becoming more diversified than before. The color of custom sliding doors can be tailored to the needs of the homeowner and their interior decoration, improving the overall compatibility and effect of the home.
