Let Air In, Keep Heat Out
When you live in Arizona, warm weather and bright sun are never far away. That’s where sliding screen doors can be the perfect option for your patio or yard. Sliding screen doors have a minimal footprint on your home while adding loads of comfort. Screen doors let in air while keeping insects and other critters out of your home. Anyone who has been unpleasantly surprised to find a desert scorpion skittering across their floor knows the value in having a good boundary between your home’s interior and the outdoors.
While standard screen doors offer fresh air alongside insect protection, we’re always encouraging our customers to consider sliding screen doors that double as sunscreens. Windows and large glazing like sliding doors are responsible for nearly half of your home’s heat gain and contribute to discomfort and energy inefficiency. The heat and light let in by large windows can extremely dampen the effectiveness of air conditioning and other cooling measures. To maximize the cooling effect of an open patio door, you’ll want sunscreens – they let the breeze in while keeping heat out.
Installing sunscreens throughout your home, but especially on large windows can greatly reduce your energy needs. Sunscreens block heat and harmful UV rays that can damage furniture, art and other features of your home like woodwork and textiles. Sliding screen doors offer a great answer to passive cooling for your home, as they keep air circulating without added heat and UV penetration. For warm, mild days, sliding screen doors fabricated as sunscreens are one of the best ways to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature without taking on a burdensome energy bill.
Give Your Home an Upgrade
Is your outdoor area underused? Installing sliding screen doors is a great idea for activating your whole property, making the outside feel more connected to your home’s interior.

Keep it Cool & Comfortable
Think of a sliding screen door as the gateway to outdoor fun.

Sliding screen doors let you merge the social activities of indoors and outdoors, without sacrificing the comfort of your home.
When it comes to handling doorways, sliding doors have appeared throughout history in many cultures and iterations. The architectural idea behind modern sliding doors probably originated in Japanese architectural traditions where sliding doors called “shoji” and have been evolving for centuries. In the United States, sliding doors didn’t become a popular option in home construction until durable designs were iterated at the start of the 20th century. After World War II, sliding doors found a new popularity in the States and today modern sliding doors can be found to compliment any style of home. Contemporary architecture takes full advantage of sleek sliding doors to elevate sweeping views and dramatic design.
