Sliding Patio Door with mini blinds recommendation?

#1 Post by Grayson73 » Thu Apr 16, 2020 3:40 pm

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good sliding patio door with mini blinds? I know about the Okna Elegante, but was wondering if this is one of the best or if there are others for under $3k.

Also, does adding the mini-blinds affect the window ratings in any way and will it scratch the glass?

Okna, Sunrise, and Soft-Lite all make a quality door. The mini-blinds option ain't cheap, so keep that in mind. That blinds can, in some cases, approach the cost of the door.

Do you know if adding mini blinds to the Okna Elegante and the offerings from Soft-Lite and Sunrise change the ratings of the glass?

Yes. The lack of argon and different Low-e will change the glass performance in this case.
