Glass garage doors may be the latest design story for a trendy restaurant, but they are also showing up in boutiques, park pavilions, music studios and art galleries. Any business with patio seating or spaces that beg to be opened to the out-of-doors during pleasant weather might want to consider a “window wall” that utilizes the space-expanding advantages of a glass garage door. They add enormous flexibility and imbue interiors with a distinctly modern vibe.
A Unique View
Options for glass garage doors are almost unlimited. Available in standard and custom sizes, the doors are built on a lightweight aluminum frame, and they function much like a window. Glass garage doors can also be constructed with no visible frame showing on the exterior. Multiple glazing options exist as well: clear, colored, opaque, frosted, smoked, tempered, wired glass, polycarbonate, or plexiglass. There is also a wide choice of frame colors, including powder-coated paint finishes to match any decor.
While clear or tinted glass will allow views in both directions, opaque doors will flood an interior with light, but minimize the view from the outside in when the door is closed. Whatever option you select, there are few limits to the options for personalization.
As a relatively new choice in the realm of non-traditional commercial use, these distinctive doors will showcase your restaurant and set it apart from the crowd, or modernize the look of any business. Because glass garage doors are functional, reliable, sturdy and safe, they can be used in tandem with stationary glass storefront walls, in place of windows, or as functioning divider walls for expansive indoor space.
Where You’ll Find Glass Garage Doors
Contemporary fire stations incorporate oversized glass garage doors — up to 26 feet in width and 20 feet high — into engine room design, adding a new dimension of light and style to a strictly functional space. National restaurant chains embrace the look and local bars and grills capitalize on the trendiness to gain additional seating outdoors. Entertainment venues love the look of segmented glass for its aesthetic appeal as well as its practical applications. Roll-up glass doors are sleek and modern in appearance. Numerous options in style size and glass, the appearance can be totally distinctive with either a casual ambience or a more classic, vintage appeal. One advantage of restaurant glass garage doors is the ease of operation. Even large doors are easily opened with the touch of a finger, and they require no adjustment.
