One of the disadvantages of glass doors is that they are more liable to crack or break if they receive a very sharp knock or heavy blow. However, such a blow would probably cause significant damage to any door, and as they′re made of toughened glass, glass doors and partitions are more than tough enough to cope with everyday use, and should not shatter or break revealing sharp edges should a seriously hard knock cause any damage.
This article is going to be about replacing an old sliding glass door with a modern Vinyl frame sliding glass door. If you currently have french doors and you want to replace them with sliding doors, or vise versa, future articles will cover that topic.
Your first step is to remove the the old handle and then clean the area from which you removed it. If glue or any other type of adhesive was used on the old one, make sure that any remaining matter is scraped off to allow the new door handle to be installed as smooth as possible. Next, make sure that the holes on the door itself are of equal distance with the holes on the new glass handle. If the holes match, proceed to drill in the screws. If new ones need to be drilled, mark the surface with a pencil where you wish to place the new screws. If you are installing a glass handle that does not require screws, you may use an adhesive to install the new handle. Make sure that that you use a strong water proof adhesive that will withstand heat and steam. After you′ve applied the adhesive and have installed the new glass handle, do not use the handle for several hours until the handle is firmly secured.
One of the possible disadvantages of course with glass is that it does not usually permit privacy. Clearly this is why very few bathrooms have doors made from glass! But there is a way in which you can enjoy the benefits of a glass door being able to allow light to pass through it whilst also enjoying a certain amount of privacy. Frosted glass, or even coloured opaque glass can be used for both partitions and doors to create an attractive feature which also provides the privacy required.
