Stationary Panel in sliders removable?


Can someone tell me if the stationary panel in a slider permanent or can it be temporarily removed. I'm thinking for when moving new furniture or kitchen appliances in/out of the house, a huge opening would be a nice-to-have.

Most can, look at the top and bottom for L shaped clips that can be removed.
Replace the whole door with a french door and never have to worry about it again.

Thanks.
This would be an off the shelf HD Andersen 400. The sales rep didn't know.
I thought of the french door but I like the idea that of the screen glider so you can leave it open to get some air flow.

Anderson---4 screws on the inside near the bottom

then L-clips top and bottom at the edge of the door,going into the track---slide it out a bit--then lift and pull the bottom .

Quick simple job.
Inside door is removed by unscrewing the long head stopper --inside top---with a bunch of screws--

Some entry level vinyl doors are the only products that I've run into where the fixed panel is not removable.
You can get screen units for French doors now. There are still some other challenges that come up though such as the clearance needed for operation. Ultimately hinged and sliding doors each have their own pros and cons.

Just be mindful not to mash, dent or otherwise damage the tracks when you're moving items across them.
