Why Us

Panoramic Doors superior design to be used everyday

Panoramic Doors "Slide-Pivot-Stack"

Panoramic Doors has been revolutionizing the sliding glass door experience since 2010. Their sliding glass doors are engineered to be unique and innovative. Unlike traditional accordion doors, the Panoramic Door features a hinge-free system that allows you to configure the door however you prefer. You can open only as many panels as you want at any given time. Moreover, Panoramic Doors come with a bottom-weighted track, making installation more accessible and more contractor-friendly. There's no need to create an additional support header, typically required for traditional bi-fold doors.

The "Slide-Pivot-Stack" system from Panoramic Doors has won multiple design awards and gained thousands of satisfied customers throughout North America. The Panoramic Door is fast becoming essential to modern home, commercial, and restaurant designs.

Panoramic Doors are incredibly easy to operate with individual sliding panels that you can configure.

ACTIVE MAIN DOOR

Every Panoramic sliding glass door has a main swing door at one end. This door serves as the primary access in and out. You will usually use your door with the rest of the panels in the secured position. This means having the main swing door is both convenient and practical.

BOTTOM TRACK OPERATED

Avoid major header construction with our bottom track-supported system. Traditional bi-fold doors stress your top support beam with thousands of pounds. This added weight often requires a new header needed to support it. This is unnecessary with a Panoramic Door system.

PANEL PLACEMENT

Our sliding glass doors come equipped with operating panels. This means you can move them to an optimal configuration to suit your needs at any moment. They can be positioned altogether or spaced out throughout the opening. These custom configurations improve and manage airflow efficiently.

CLEAN DESIGN

We wanted our doors to have a modern design and appearance. To achieve this, we offer a sleek and sophisticated door system with concealed locks and hinges within the panels and frame. Unlike hinged bifold doors, our Panoramic Door does not require shoot bolts or pull handles.

PATENTED HARDWARE

Our patented hardware utilizes permanent magnetic attraction to allow the sliding panel to pivot open. This unique design is the secret to how the Panoramic sliding glass door operates and why we call it a “slide-pivot-stack” door.

INTERLOCKING PANELS

A second patented feature of the Panoramic Door system is the tongue-and-groove interlock between the slide and fold panels. The tongue-and-groove delivers a superior security and weather rating.

TRACK OPTIONS

Choose from various track options according to your weather and design needs. Recess your track for a smooth transition from inside to outside.

THERMALLY EFFICIENT

Combining aluminum and PVC allows building a more robust, thermally efficient door system suitable for all weather conditions.

In 2023, we introduced The Chamberlin Series and Chamberlin XL for additional thermal efficiency.

The difference between Panoramic Doors and traditional sliding doors

Regular patio sliding doors used to be popular...

Traditional Sliding Door Does Not Fully Open!

When a traditional door is fully opened, its stationary and moving panels occupy a significant portion of the opening, as they must remain on the track at all times. This limits the user to only two configurations - open or closed. However, with a Panoramic Door, you have the flexibility to adjust the system to achieve optimal airflow and designate traffic patterns, providing you with more control over the environment.

  • You do not get full use of the opening
  • The view is obstructed by layers of door panel frames and screens

Panoramic Doors can achieve a number of configurations.

All Panels Closed

Panels configure for Opening On Both Ends

All Panels Open

Panels Configured for Opening in Center

Main Swing Door Open

Panels Spaced for Enhanced Airflow

Objects can impede the operation of the door.

The difference between  Panoramic Doors and Traditional Patio Bi-Fold Doors

Traditional Bifold doors lose many of the benefits of sliding doors and have added limitations. Unlike the traditional sliding door that is greatly limited on total open space, the bifold door offers a way to maximize the open area. It is, for this reason, they first became very popular with restaurants and stores. The bifold door offered a way to add an extra level of elegance or grandeur while helping to create an open atmosphere. While traditional bi-fold doors are hinged and not able to be set with multiple configurations.

  • Traditional Bifold doors hang from the header often requiring substantial retrofitting before installation.
  • Traditional Bifold doors require much more hardware to operate making the door more difficult to maintain.
  • More difficult to operate because you have many locks and pull handles that must be used.
  • Door panels leave the line of the track when folding. This prevents the positioning of furniture or other items near the door.
  • More space is needed on the inside and outside.
  • The operation often deteriorates over time as the panel-to-panel hinges age.
  • Expansion of the panels can cause binding.
  • Complete operation failure is a possibility.
