Commercial Glass Doors
Does your business have glass doors? In a lot of commercial buildings, glass doors can be both convenient and attractive. Glass doors allow a lot of natural light into a building, making an office or workspace look bigger and more inviting. Glass doors also tend to look more luxurious.
As with any material, glass doors can have problems. What you may not realize; however, is that glass is not that difficult to repair when you have a professional, reliable contractor. A glass technician can assess your glass doors and determine whether it will require a repair or full replacement. If you notice any of the following signs with your glass doors, call the professionals at S. Albert Glass.
The Doors Stick
Sliding doors are never supposed to stick. It can be a large inconvenience to have a door that won’t open. It can also be a sign of a bigger problem. If your doors do not function properly, this could be a hazard to your guests.
The Doors Fog Up
If you see fog building up between the doors, then you may have to consider a replacement. This means that moisture is trapped between the panes of your door. In this case, your door most likely has gaps or openings that provide a way for moisture to enter the glass.
The Doors Don’t Protect Against Drafts
If you stand near the door, do you notice a change in the temperature of the room? In the winter, you may feel colder when you stand next to the door than you do in other parts of the building. This draft needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. If you don’t, outside air can enter causing discomfort to those inside while also allowing the air from inside the building to escape, costing you more in heating and air conditioning.
