Sliding glass door replacement - identity needed
I am trying to identify (in order to replace) a sliding glass door on a patio room. The only identifying marks are in the corner of the glass and they are as follows:
ANSI Z97.1-1984
1/8U SGCC-598


The glass door has begun to lose its seal and the contractor who built our patio room has gone out of business and will not respond to my request to honor his lifetime guarantee of replacement.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

Pictures would help.

The doors have a metal trim. Attached (if I am able to do this right) are pictures of the offending sliding glass door from outside, inside and then a picture of the whole patio room which will show you all the doors.

Aluminum slider.

Best bet is to contact a glazing company and they can re-make that panel for you.

It is tempered glass so you can really repair that failed IGU via the traditional methods that some folks sell it as, however, you could drill a hole in the spacer and go that route.

Glass needs to be re-made and whether or not it is under warranty is tough to tell without knowing the manufacturer.

Looks like a builder grade door...can be hard to identify. Not sure where you are, but if you can take that door out and take to a glass co. They will replace it cheaply.

Wonder girl,
why don't you check with any of the big or local companies that do the patio enclosure rooms, seeing as that's what you have. They should be able to either supply a replacement or point you in the right direction as to who the supplier or manufacturer of the door was.

Wondergirl -

I fyou are in a larger metro area, just call an glass company and have then come out to measure the glass.

I had a badly leaking over-sized door and the guy to doing the measurement has a panel on his truck and in about 20 minutes, he removed the door, replaced the IGU, cleaned the tracks, adjusted the door and was gone.

Dear Wondergirl,
Did you ever find out the manufacturer of those doors? I need to replace a wood grill insert on my slider and I have the same information etched on the glas. Local home repair stores (even the large chains) have not been able to help me. Thanks,

My thoughts exactly.

were you able to find out the brand of you door. I have a sliding screen door that needs to be replaced and my sliding glass door has the same identifying marks. Thanks. rosofal

Screen doors are best ordered on line. You can maybe find the cheap bigbox screen doors. Screen doors are all a little different, and can be hard to find locally. You will still have to build the door if you order online.
