    All Glass Door systems

    How have others created the all-glass frameless doors like crlaurence.com and dorma.com have has seen in the 2 attached PDF files? I can think of varies ways to do this, curtain wall/storefront, Glass wall with reveals for joints and sweeps for bottom and top rail and then a glass door inserted in the wall, door family that has all glass panels and door built in it. Each has its pros and cons, so I'm looking to see how others have tackled them.

    Thanks!

    We do it all the time, for office layout with curtain walls and curtain wall doors. With a curtain wall (CW), you vill be able to control the panel size - something that is a manual a task with a "glass wall". You could for example lay out one CW for normal usage with a rather large panel size, and one where the panel size is smaller where fire regulations apply.

    I can't really see the con' of using a CW for this task (if you want to document it).

    regards

      Depends on the situation... If it are these kind of full glass walls I'd go with the Curtain Wall. If it's just doors, with maybe a sidelight, I'd create a door family.

        I use door families with visibility options for the various rail/patch fitting types and pull handles or panic devices using Door - Curtain Wall.rft. Then I just replace curtain panels in curtain walls with them like normal curtain wall doors. Of course I'm not able to be generic as I have to show specific rail/patch fitting types with the correct shape (square or beveled) and the correct height and width because I schedule these options for takeoffs for ordering doors. If you are an Architect just trying to show a general glass door with rails or patches then maybe just using a curtain wall type would work better for you ??
        I'm retired, if you don't like it, go around!
