About


Our History

IBeam Sliding Doors was developed in the fall and winter of 2012 and 2013 by founder Jon Fehr.

There were simply too many issues with door failure, and the industry failed to upgrade door systems to meet the demand of the increased size of doors and functionality.

IBeam Sliding Doors always has the consumer's best interest at heart. Our doors are designed for the builder and the user is the utmost priority.

Unlike our competitor’s components, our doors are engineered systems. We will always invest in better systems and upgrades, making research and testing a priority. We desire to be the industry leader for sliding door systems. As such, we will always be open to suggestions and ideas to make a better product.

Everything, no matter it’s greatness, can always be improved.
