The Essential™ Sliding Patio Door, made of Ultrex® fiberglass, delivers clean lines and more glass to prioritize views and allow for effortless operation for years to come.
Hardware for the Essential collection sliding door is available in the Cambridge collection. Finishes in Brass, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and Satin Nickel are available with a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) finish, meaning the hardware has undergone a process that adds a layer of toughness to resist fading and discoloration by direct sunlight, humidity, and most other environmental factors. Choose exterior and interior handle colors in either a color that matches, complements or contrasts with the exterior color and the interior finish of your door.
*Hardware styles shown are available in all finish options below.
**The Slim Line handle allows a 32” net clear opening when used on a 6’ wide 2 panel sliding patio door to meet accessibility needs. It is only available in White, Almond Frost, Matte Black, and Bronze
*Not all decorative glass is compatible with all products. Check with your dealer for a recommendation on which glass is right for your project. Images may not be an accurate representation.

Glass is an important aspect for managing the energy efficiency of your home. Our standard glazing is dual pane: two panes of glass with Low E coatings and argon insulating gas. We offer variations to help meet climate and code requirements across the country, described in more detail on our glass page.
Screens for the Essential product line feature a durable, low maintenance aluminum surround and Marvin Bright View™ mesh – a fiberglass screen mesh that provides improved airflow and more natural light while keeping insects out. Bright View repels water and resists dirt and grime for a sharp, vivid view.
For cohesive curb appeal, all exterior screens are available in colors to match Ultrex® fiberglass window and door exteriors.
The look of multiple, individual panes of glass in a door panel is popular in a wide range of architectural styles. Grilles between the glass, available in a number of different styles, mimic the look of these individual panes of glass without sacrificing energy efficiency.
Grilles are permanently installed between the glass panes for a low-maintenance, smooth exterior and easy cleaning. Choose from 6 exterior colors and 3 interior colors.
