All Glass Entrance Systems

Introduction

Glass Entrance Overview/What are Glass Entrance Systems?
Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® entrance systems can employ swinging or sliding doors, as well as stacking or bifold panels. Many variations are available with Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® tempered glass entry doors. They can be used with corner patches only, with continuous rails only, or in combinations of the two. The sketches shown here illustrate some of the many possibilities.

Where should I use them?
• Malls, Hotels, Office Buildings
• Interior Store Entrances
• Airports, Museums, Sports Arenas

Glass entrances should be virtually invisible and trouble-free. With Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® glass systems you get just that. As a testament to properly designed fittings and pivots, Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® glass systems have been operating trouble free for many years in applications nationwide. Our glass systems are also designed to provide clean, unobtrusive lines and come in many configurations and finishes to compliment virtually any surrounding surface.
