FRENCH-STYLE SLIDING PATIO DOOR
FW&D announces a new style in sliding patio doors. Alside, a leading manufacturer of windows, introduces the Promenade™ French-Style Sliding Patio Door. The new premium patio door is designed to function flawlessly, protecting homes from inclement weather and reducing energy loss without taking up the space of traditional in-swing French doors. The patio doors also allow an abundance of natural sunlight into the home – what many homeowners desire when choosing a patio door.
“French-style doors are a popular design choice for many consumers,” said Robert Schindler, senior vice president of marketing for Associated Materials, Inc., Alside’s parent company. “The challenge is that they require a considerable amount of space to operate. With this new patio door design, Alside has made it easy for homeowners to capture that same elegant appearance in a space-saving sliding door design.”
The doors’ 5" top, 7" bottom and 3" side rails feature mortised joints that help to achieve the traditional “French door” character and charm. For easy, quiet operation of the door panel, these patio doors are developed with a steel tandem roller system with nylon-encased steel wheels. Promenade patio doors require little maintenance; will never need painting; and are made with premium vinyl that won’t chip, peel, crack or warp.
Designed with energy efficiency in mind, dual internal and external weatherstripping on the patio doors provide improved energy-efficiency performance. Alside also offers ENERGY STAR® qualified ClimaTech® insulated glass package options that help reduce the transfer of heat and cold, leading to improved energy savings year round.
Promenade French-Style Sliding Patio Doors are available in 2-, 3- or 4-panel configurations. Homeowners can choose from a white or beige door and a collection of decorative glass options. For added visual appeal, cut or polished V-grooved glass patterns and six elegant handle styles also are available.
