Make the most of your home’s views

The clean lines of Nova’s fiberglass sliding door deliver more glass area, providing you better views to the outdoors. This all fiberglass door, built with fiberglass frames, sashes, interlocks, astragals, glazing stops and exterior trim, provides the ultimate in durability and energy efficiency with 1″ double pane and 1 3/8″ triple pane insulated LoE glass.  Each operable panel glides on an extruded aluminum track with precision bearing 2 1/4″ diameter rollers, creating a smooth and effortless operation while still achieving an excellent weather seal with positive compression on all four sides to reduce air and water infiltration.  Multipoint locks come standard helping create a safe and secure seal.  The extruded aluminum top hung screen with magnetic latching ensures smooth operation that won’t be affected by dirt and debris.

FINISHES

We offer our doors in ten standard paint color options.  All doors are exclusively painted with TruCoat.  It’s smooth surface finish, high surface hardness, excellent adhesion, and fade resistance make it an ideal coating for fiberglass exterior building products. Because all of our door components are the same material, fiberglass, it eliminates tonal color variances caused by dissimilar materials, creating a perfect color match between the frame, trim and door slab.  To top it all off TruCoat is an environmentally friendly, low VOC, water based coating that outperforms the solvent based coatings that are the current standard in the marketplace.

Below is a list of our standard color options.  Two tone finishes, custom colors and metallic finishes are available for an additional charge.

Insulated Glass

Our sliding doors are available in 1″ double pane and high-performance 1 3/8″ triple pane insulated glass. If you have a home with a southern exposure and passive solar design we can supply you with Cardinal’s LoE-180 high solar heat gain glass.  Looking to achieve the highest R value for your home, upgrade to our triple pane IGs. Want to improve your home’s security and peace of mind, upgrade to 1/4″ tempered glass.  Live along a busy street or noisy neighborhood; our laminated glass can help improve the STC rating of your door while also increasing the security.

LoE Options

Cardinal LoE-180 delivers excellent cold weather performance – its insulation value (U-factor) is a low 0.26, and with a high solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.69, it lets the winter sun’s heat pass into the home. It also blocks 71 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays. While blocking out the cold and UV rays, it lets the daylight stream in – more light than ordinary low-e glass.

LoE-366 is formulated to reject solar heat while maintaining attractive visibility. So it keeps the heat out while letting light in. As a matter of fact, LoE-366 glass is our ultimate in performance and clarity among all of Cardinal’s clear coated products. What’s more, LoE-366 provides the ultimate in fading protection. It blocks 95% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays – a leading cause of fading so your furniture and wall coverings stay beautiful for years.
Give your Nova door that extra boost of performance with one additional LoE coating on the interior surface of your doors’ glazing. The i89 LoE hard-coat will boost the full-frame energy performance by 0.02 U on average, however there is a slight reduction in condensation resistance.

Laminated Glass

The world gets noisier every day. Laminated glass is an effective way to reduce unwanted outside noise. This is especially useful in areas near airports, industry, traffic, or wherever unpleasant sounds exist. The American Society for Testing and Materials developed the sound transmission class rating (STC) to describe the sound isolation performance of materials. A higher STC rating indicates a greater sound dampening effect. Laminated glass increases the STC rating of a door, diminishing unwanted outside noises.

Laminated glass can also help offer a level of security and serenity that can’t be realized with ordinary glass. Ordinary annealed glass breaks easily. Tempered glass, while stronger, shatters under a greater impact. But laminated glass is different. If laminated glass is broken, the vinyl interlayer remains in the frame, with glass fragments adhering to the interlayer. This provides a strong barrier against forced entry and cannot be cut from one side only, which renders glass cutters useless.

 

Blinds Between the Glass
