Large Door Systems

Do you love spending time in your garden? Do you wish you had a better way to connect your indoor and outdoor living spaces? With a large door system, you can do just that.

Large doors are wider and grander that ordinary patio doors, allowing you to transform an entire wall of your home into an expansive portal between the indoors and outdoors. If this sounds like the type of custom solution you’re looking for, read on to learn more about the large door systems available from Quality Window & Door.

Large Door System Manufacturers

Centor is an American door manufacturer based in Chicago, Illinois. The company has been producing custom large door systems since 1951. Over the decades, this brand has become an industry leader, designing high-quality systems with patented hardware and modern appearances perfect for any discerning homeowner.

Centor doors are known for their customizability. They are available in multiple patterns, colors, finishes, and screen configurations. Panel numbers and sizes are also fully modifiable. On top of all this, Centor large door systems are energy efficient, allowing you to enjoy the link between indoor and outdoor living without increasing your energy bills.

Other large door system manufacturers include Panda, Parrett, Weather Shield, Euro-Wall, and more. These manufacturers custom-make large door systems right here in the US. Explore the different types of large doors available from Centor, Panda, Parrett, and others, which you can install in your DC, Maryland, or Northern Virginia home with help from Quality Window & Door.

Multi-Slide Doors

The streamlined appearance and smooth functionality of multi-slide doors make this large door system a top choice for many DC-area homeowners. The large opening created by a multi-slide door floods your home with light, even when the doors are closed. Then, when you open them, you effortlessly connect inside and out.

Multi-slide doors from Weather Shield’s Contemporary Collection are available in massive spans up to 50 feet wide and 10 feet high. Configurations range from two-panel sliders to 10-panel pocket doors and everything in between.

Folding Doors

With a slightly different look from sliding doors, folding doors are designed to stack accordion style as they open. This may be the right option if you like the ability to open the living space entirely, but pocket doors aren’t possible in your home.

Folding doors from Centor come in a wide range of customizable configurations with openings up to 30 feet wide and panel height up to 9 feet tall. Concealed hinges and self-latching hardware make folding doors a beautiful sight from both inside and outside your home.

Lift & Slide Doors

Lift and slide large door systems are designed specifically for the high-end luxury market. They feature multiple sliding panels with discrete recessed door tracks and the option to tuck away unseen into wall pockets. The door can operate in a straight line, on a curve, or around angles to achieve the exact configuration you have in mind.

Panda lift and slide doors are available with panels up to 72 square feet with extra tall or extra wide configurations available. Choose just one sliding door with one fixed panel or install four or more sliding doors that tuck out of sight into a wall pocket. The possibilities are endless!

Pivot Doors

Single or double pivot doors could be the right option if you want a large door system, but you don’t have room for more than one or two panels. Pivot doors are hinged on one side like a typical interior or exterior door. However, you can still find pivot doors in large sizes up to 10 feet tall and 4 feet wide for a single door, and up to 7 feet wide for a double door.
