Steel windows and doors are traditionally built as hinged sash operations in combination with fixed glass. However, today’s contemporary and modern architecture will often call for large expanses of operable sliding glass to enhance the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of these distinctive homes. Flat transition sills, multiple stacking panels, and matching screens make sliding systems an ideal solution in these designs. The use of pockets to tuck away the doors and screens into the wall cavity further adds to their open feel.
Sliding doors can be motorized to assist with the operation of larger panels. All of the same divided lite options available in our swing products can be used and aligned in our sliding systems.
In the steel genre, sliding systems are often the weak link in a product offering. An afterthought. From our 35+ years as a California custom window and door manufacturer, we know the importance of these elements in today’s market and offer a full spectrum of sliding systems that match the proportion, sightline and detail of our hinged windows and doors. Tested and proven, our sliding systems transition seamlessly with all our other steel products and truly complement the home.
