French Sliding Doors

Product Overview

For an old world look in a new world home consider our sliding French patio door. The wide bottom rail provides the same sight line as our traditional swinging French patio door. The operating panel glides on two sets of stainless steel rollers complimented by a multi-point locking system that locks securely at three points along the frame.

Features & Options Build Quality
  1. Super Spacer glazing provides energy efficient thermal performance for year-round interior comfort.
  2. Weather resistant beauty with heavy-duty low maintenance extruded aluminum cladding.
  3. Real wood interior complements any home’s décor.
  4. One piece fiberglass sill.
  5. Specially designed weather stripping system ensures a secure seal for added comfort and performance.
  6. Semco wide door stiles are an engineered stile designed to maintain straightness and add strength to the door. The core of the stile is LVL (laminated veneer lumber) is designed for strength and stability. The LVL core is stronger than solid wood and more stable when exposed to the changing exterior and interior conditions. The stiles have clear wood edge strips on both edges and clear wood veneers on both faces to create a balanced structural stile with a stain grade appearance.

Triple-Pane Performance on Dual-Pane Units

LoE-i89 on the 4th surface of your windows allows you to get near triple-pane performance in a double-pane unit, and meet the toughest energy guidelines as well. Finally, LoE-i89 can be purchased in hurricane-resistant laminated glass in a variety of shapes and sizes.

LoE 366 Neat®*

Keep your exterior glass cleaner, longer. This glazing option is manufactured with a unique titanium dioxide layer that reacts chemically with the sun’s UV rays that causes organic materials that are on the glass to decompose. It works even on cloudy days, as 80% of the UV rays still penetrate the cloud cover. So when it rains, the decomposed dirt no longer clings to the glass and is easily rinsed away leaving the glass clean and your view more enjoyable.
