Rebecca Gross added this to How to Choose External Glass Doors for Style and Energy Smarts23 Aug 2017

External shadingShading glass doors can reduce summer temperatures, improving comfort and saving on cooling costs. They can also protect floor coverings and furniture from fading in sunlight.Most Australian homes (apart from those in the far north) will benefit from shading on the northern side of the house where high-angle sun enters. East and west openings receive low-angle morning and afternoon summer sun. They typically need less shade in the morning when the sun is not too hot, but afternoons can get uncomfortable, in which case vertical structures, such as trees, shrubs or timber battens, can help screen light and heat.

BenefitsHinged doors can be used to maximise the space of a narrow opening, and are a good alternative when there is no allowance to install stacked or folding doors. Because they swing in or out, they will require a clear space to open, equal to the width of the door.Hinged doors come in a variety of sizes, but the structural frame and hinges will need to be able to support the weight of the door when open.They can be teamed with security or fly screens to let the breeze in while keeping unwanted bugs and other pests out.Browse more indoor/outdoor living spaces
