Frenchwood Gliding Patio Door Features

  • Low-Maintenance

    The sill has an extruded aluminum track, with a stainless steel cap that resists stain, rust and denting and an attractive wear-resistant, heat-baked finish in a neutral gray color.

    The exterior frame is covered with rigid vinyl that maintains an attractive appearance while minimizing maintenance. The wood frame is treated with a water-repellent preservative for long-lasting protection and performance.  

    A flexible vinyl weatherstrip provides a positive seal between the frame and panels.

  • Smooth Operation

    Dual ball-bearing rollers on door panels provide smooth gliding operation with self-contained leveling adjusters.
  • Maximum Strength

    Panel joints are mortise-and-tenon with patented dowel construction for maximum strength.
  • Enhanced Security

    The unique Andersen® reachout locking hardware pulls the door panel snugly into the jamb for a weathertight seal and enhanced security.

  • SmartSun™ Tempered Glass

    SmartSun™ glass gives you the benefits of Low-E glass, plus it helps shield your home from the sun's heat by filtering out harmful UV rays.

    Ideal for: All Climates

    SmartSun™ with HeatLock Coating is available on 400 Series products. This prevents more heat from escaping your home but slightly reduces the visible light transmitted through the glass. 

  • Low-E4® Tempered Glass

    Low-E4® Glass reflects heat in the summer and helps to retain interior heat in the winter. 

    Ideal for: All Climates

    Low-E4® with HeatLock Coating is available on 400 Series products. This improves the U-Factor performance of the window but slightly reduces how much light comes through the glass. 


  • PassiveSun® Tempered Glass

    If you live in a cold climate, PassiveSun® glass allows the sun to heat your home.

    Ideal for: Northern Climates

  • Sun Tempered Glass

    Sun glass has excellent thermal performance. This glass has a subtle tint that blocks out more heat from the sun.

    Ideal for: Southern Climates

  • HeatLock® Technology

    HeatLock® coating reflects heat that likes to escape your home through window glass. It can be added to most of Andersen's glass options.

Decorative and Specialty Glass

Art Glass

Screens & Blinds

Insect Screens

  • All insect screens have a long-lasting fiberglass screen mesh with a charcoal finish and are color matched to the exterior of the door unless otherwise specified.

  • Retractable Insect Screen

    The retractable insect screen is installed on the exterior of the door and opens side-to-side across the width of the opening. When the insect screen is not in use, it neatly retracts into a small canister mounted on the exterior of the door. The retractable insect screen canister is available for two-panel patio doors. Please note, retractable insect screen track reduces clear opening height by 1".

I've had this door for several months now and I'm very satisfied. My old door was an Andersen and I had it for over 30 years. This one is built just as well if not better. It holds out the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter. It operates very smoothly. I highly recommend Andersen doors and windows.
