I am interested in using the type of full glass doors seen in many store fronts. They are usually brushed aluminum framed and the store display windows are usually clad in the same stuff.
(Thermal efficiency is not a major factor at this point.)
Having seen older store buildings retrofitted with more modern material, I am wondering if the doors are measured and made to fit the old openings.
I like the clean appearance and also that it will require far less maintenance.
This will be used for the kitchen entrance which is protected by a covered porch.
I am planning on checking with the local glass shop, which seems to do a lot of store fronts in our area.
(I also see these types of doors/windows featured in articles showing off New York City lofts and apartments.)
In general are they usually custom made for each (commercial) job ?
I’m wondering if asking about an entry door only will generate little interest from the vendor/manufacturer.
