A couple of things you should be aware of are:
All sliding security doors must have top and bottom rollers to prevent the door being able to be lifted up and out of the frame, this will also help the door slide beautifully. All sliding security doors must have an interlocking system at the back edge of the door to attached it to the fixed glass door when in the locked position, and prevent it from being pulled away from the glass door at the opposite side of the lock.This must be screwed on to your door using anti tamper proof screws, pop rivets are not to be used for interlock as they are weak and can just be knocked off with a screw driver. All sliding and hinged security doors MUST be installed with a TRIPLE LOCKING SYSTEM and 5 pin double key cylinder to meet the Australian standards.This prevents your door from being pulled out at the top and bottom, and also gives the intruder 3 points of security to get through.Also there are a lot of different glass door and window companies out there with lots of varied frames.
