Floor to ceiling glass entrances are possibly the greatest achievement in modern storefront architecture. When builders craft the entrances to commercial buildings out of glass it allows passersby to experience all of the ambience of the inner space. Marketing and artistic displays, wall colors, movement, texture, lighting, shadows all become viewable from the outside. Since the start of large-scale commercial use of glass entrances, customers and business owners alike know glass can truly help draw in the crowd.

Here at Cypress Door & Glass LLC, we specialize in creating flawless, functional glass entrances in Philadelphia-area construction projects. We’ve worked with many local prominent builders to install intricate glass entrances fit for the city’s most prominent buildings. Our entrances provide clean, unobstructed lines and perfect visibility, and can incorporate swing or sliding doors. Full glass entrances often employ automatic doors to give storefronts an effortless and attractive passageway for customer foot traffic.
Glass Entrances | Remodeling of Large Commercial Structures
We can rebuild entry and exit points to large commercial spaces with wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass entrances. Often times, these entrances can be incorporated into the original design using patch fittings, assembled side lites, transoms, stabilizer supports and other architectural features. Glass doors at the center of the entrance are built up to ten feet high, or to the specific requirements of the building being renovated. Glass entrances can be built in thicknesses ranging from approx. 3/8” to 3/4”, with a variety of glass types to choose from according to function, including:
- High Performance Glass – whether Low-E or Heat Mirror, high performance glass provides energy efficiency and utility savings in the long run, and can save customers money right from the start by allowing the downsizing of HVAC systems. Employee productivity will increase as well from the improved comfort of work-space environment. Ultraviolet fading can also by mitigated with high performance glass.
- Insulated Glass – Manufacturers add tinting to glass exterior to help control heat gain and sun glare
- Laminated Glass – Glass entrances built with laminated glass will enjoy better sound insulation, as well as higher security, effectively deterring break-ins and vandalism. Manufactures create laminated glass by placing a sheet of plastic between two thin panes of glass, helping it stay together when broken.
- Tempered Safety Glass – Tempered glass is nearly three and half times stronger than regular annealed glass. It is also far safer, crumbling into pieces when broken instead of slivering.
