Create Custom or Standard-Sized Sliding Glass Doors

The standard height for sliding glass doors is 80" with a width varying from 60" to72" depending on the space. Installing a sliding glass door of any size, standard or custom, not only enhances your everyday life, but can also increase the value of your home when it's time to sell. Exterior sliding glass doors let in more natural sunlight than just windows alone, and add a contemporary feel to your guests and family.

Standard Sizes for Sliding Glass Doors

In most homes, door frames are typically measured to a standard size to make door replacements easy. Sliding glass doors typically consist of two sections: a fixed glass panel and a sliding glass panel; however, three-panel doors are also common, and allow even more natural light into your home. These panels are similarly sized in either standard or custom yet equal sizes. 

Standard widths for two-panel sliding glass doors include:

  • 60 inches, or 5 feet
  • 72 inches, or 6 feet
  • 96 inches, or 8 feet

Standard widths for three-panel sliding glass doors include:

  • 108 inches, or 9 feet
  • 144 inches, or 12 feet

The most common heights for sliding glass doors include:

  • 80 inches, or 6 feet 8 inches
  • 82 inches, or 6 feet 10 inches
  • 96 inches, or 8 feet

Create Custom Sliding Glass with Glass Doctor

Cut from high quality glass, Glass Doctor specialists know what type of glass is best for your glass solution. For most glass doors, we recommend safety glass, or tempered glass, that won't break into sharp, jagged pieces when an accident occurs, or Low-E glass that blocks harmful UV-rays from damaging the furniture in your home. Ask your specialist for a recommendation during your consultation!
