sliding glass door

A "sliding glass door", often referred to as a patio door, is a type of sliding door utilized in architecture and construction. It is characterized by a large glass window that serves as a doorway, connecting an indoor space with the outdoors and thus allowing fresh air and abundant natural light into the room.

A typical sliding glass door is typically a two-panel unit, with one panel fixed and the other mobile, enabling it to slide open. Another variant is the wall-sized glass pocket door, where one or more panels are moveable and slide into wall pockets, allowing for a seamless indoor-outdoor room experience.

The sliding glass door, introduced as a significant element of pre-war International style architecture in Europe and North America, draws its inspiration from the traditional Japanese Shōji and Fusuma panel doors. Its prevalent use in post-war modernist, Mid-century modern styles, suburban ranch-style houses, multi-unit housing, and hotel-motel chains has cemented its place as a standard feature in residential and hospitality building construction across numerous regions and countries.
