Sliding glass doors can be a headache for commercial and rental property owners for a number of reasons. Guests and tenants can forget to close doors, resulting in excess energy costs and increased security risk. With rising energy costs and a growing concern for the environment, securely closed doors are the first step in cutting down on wasted energy. One of the most effective and easily implemented solutions to the problem is installing automatic door closers on sliding glass doors.

Self-closing devices are installed on the sliding doors and automatically close the door anytime it is left open. The patented Ultra Glide sliding glass door closer and safety latch, made by DCS Global in Phoenix, AZ can be used on any kind of sliding door and can be color-matched to coordinate with doors and decors. These devices are unobtrusive and are the perfect way to ensure that your sliding doors will always close.

The Ultra Glide is especially effective, because it will not be damaged if the door is pushed shut, and it will not prematurely damage the rollers and track on the patio doors, ensuring long life for your property's sliding doors. The device enables property owners to retain the value and long life of your sliding doors.

For commercial property owners who want to lower energy costs as well as making a positive environmental impact, the Ultra Glide can be a great energy saving device, as the management at Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas discovered. The Resort installed Ultra Glide devices on several different types of patio doors throughout their lodge rooms in the spring of 2009. Jan Marquis, Director of Land Maintenance at the property says, "I believe the installation of these units has had a positive impact on lowering our energy usage for our lodge rooms, as it does not allow the guest to leave the doors open while the air conditioners are running." Marquis also says that the installation of the Ultra Glide devices went smoothly on each type of door, and that the doors all operate well since installation. This simple, property-wide improvement provided a quick solution to concerns of Resort management, and shows guests that the company is energy and environmentally conscious.

In addition to saving on energy costs, every commercial property owner wants to rest assured that their property is secure and safe for residents and guests. Open doors are an invitation to unwanted visitors, whether it is insects, snakes or other pests. Of course, an open door can be a security risk when it comes to guests' belongings as well. With self-closing devices installed on sliding doors, property owners don't need to rely on their guests to close doors behind them. Security problems can be minimized by having doors that close securely every time.

For a minimal investment and simple installation, commercial property owners can keep their investment secure as well as cutting down on energy costs and leading the way to a greener future.
