Whenever we get asked which brand of patio doors we recommend for San Diego homes, we almost always say “Anlin.” Our San Diego replacement window company has been installing Anlin doors in the homes of our customers for more than a decade, and overwhelmingly, our customers love them! We think you will too, and here’s why:
Quality Patio Door Construction
Anlin has always been about quality. Ever since the California-based company was founded, they have used quality materials as well as quality construction methods. As a result, Anlin manufactures well-made, durable patio doors that will upgrade just about any San Diego home.
When it comes to sliding patio doors, which are the most popular style of patio doors in San Diego homes, it’s all about the quality of the door’s rollers and tracks for most homeowners. They want their patio doors to slide freely so they can have easy access to the outdoors. Anlin doors use stainless steel rollers with sealed, precision bearings. The rollers glide smoothly over a stainless steel track made from a single piece of metal.
Anlin First Guard Laminated Security Glass
Safety tends to be a top concern for homeowners with patio doors. Anlin offers First Guard Laminated Security Glass as an optional upgrade for added security. This type of glass provides patio doors with a barrier that’s almost impenetrable to would-be intruders. According to third-party testers, patio doors with First Guard Laminated Security glass could withstand “…an assault of 20 hits from a 32 ounce hammer wielded by a 250 pound person without penetration of the window in excess of a hole, eight (8) inches in diameter.”

Energy-Saving Glass Options
In addition to upgraded security glass, Anlin also offers several different glass packages that are designed to help save you money on your monthly energy bills by keeping out the heat and cold. Anlin’s standard glass package is their Infinit-e glass, which provides great solar protection, while still letting in natural light. You can also choose to upgrade to their SunMatrix glass, which blocks 99% of UV rays, or their SunShield glass, which provides maximum protection against extreme temperatures. SunShield glass has a blue/gray tint to it, so you will reduce the amount of natural light coming into your home, however.
At BM Windows, we also offer upgraded sound suppression glass, as well as Anlin’s Easy Clean coating, which helps your windows stay clean between washings.
Your BM Windows representative can help you choose among all of these glass options. Most of our customers opt for standard glass, but if you are interested, we are happy to tell you more about the upgrades that are available.
In-Glass Pet Doors Available for All Anlin Doors
Another great option with Anlin doors is their in-glass pet doors. These are pet doors that are factory-installed right in the patio door glass. They come in multiple sizes to accommodate your dog(s) or cat(s). They have durable flaps that can withstand heavy use by multiple pets, and they have a magnetic closure to help keep out dust, debris, and rain.
