The best way to get up to speed on our products is an in-person walk-through with one of our product experts. Since that’s not always possible, we’ve produced some videos to explain operation, features, and options.
Loewen Sliding Patio doors can open up the walls in your home to new possibilities. For safety, security, and ease of operation, Loewen uses laminated sash construction, thick tempered safety glass and smooth tandem rollers. For added security, Loewen builds an anti-panel lift device into every patio door.

Sliding Patio & French Doors Technical Guide
Our Sliding Patio door exteriors can be metal-clad (extruded aluminum), non-clad (all wood), or you can choose a Sliding Patio door from our Cyprium Collection (our Cyprium products are unique in more ways than just the Copper and Bronze cladding, see the Cyprium Collection page for details). To understand all the exterior styles available, hop over to our Colors & Finishes page. You’ll want to look at the clad colors, wood paints & stains, and our Cyprium patinas.
The interior of our Sliding Patio doors will be a beautiful and high-performing wood species. Our standard of course is Coastal Douglas Fir, but alternative species like Honduran Mahogany are also available. You can leave the interior with a simple clear coat, stain it, or paint it. To see our limited prefinishing options, see our Colors & Finishes page.
Probably the best way to get a grasp of all the applicable Patio door hardware would be watching the Vitrual Walk-Through on this page. The video will touch on the stainless steel lock and strike plates, and the foot-lock.
Most importantly though, you’ll want to understand all the available handles and finishes. For a comprehensive look at all these offerings, please see our Door Hardware page.
Our large sliding doors are capable of accommodating retractable screens. Enjoy the fresh air and ambience from a large opening with none of the bugs.
