Patio Doors: What to Look for and What to Avoid (by Brooks)

1.   GLASS MUST BE TEMPERED WHICH WILL GIVE IT 5 TIMES THE IMPACT RESISTANCE OF REGULAR GLASS.

2.   GLASS MUST BE HIGH GRADE (SOFT COAT) LOW E.

3.   FRAME MUST BE REINFORCED.

4.   PANELS MUST INTERLOCK WELL TOGETHER TO SEAL OUT ELEMENTS.

5.   SHOULD HAVE HIGH GRADE LONG LASTING WEATHERSTRIPPING.

6.   A STRONG & CORROSION RESISTANT MOVEMENT SYSTEM.  MUST BE  A SIMPLE DESIGN CONSISTING OF WHEELS OR ROLLERS.

7.   LOCKING MECHANISM SHOULD ALSO BE OF SIMPLER DESIGN AS TOO MANY MOVING PARTS = PROBLEMS DOWN THE ROAD.

8.   SCREEN FRAME SHOULD BE STRONG & UNBENDABLE.
