Weather Shield Expands Product Lines With New Multi-Slide Door Systems
Weather Shield has expanded its Contemporary Collection and Premium Series aluminum-clad wood windows and patio doors with its newly redesigned multi-slide door systems. The enhanced line is designed to combine improved performances, modern styling and easy assembly with narrow profiles to ensure expansive, unobstructed views, according to the company.
"Beauty, utility and meticulous craftsmanship are hallmarks of these collections," says Chris Schield, vice president of product marketing, Weather Shield. "Customizable to meet nearly every architectural specification, our redesigned multi-slide patio doors are available in traditional stacked configurations or hidden inside a pocket wall to create a seamless transition to the outdoor world."
With options up to 57 feet, 6 inches wide, Weather Shield's new multi-slide doors are available with designer hardware and two panel variations. The Contemporary Collection comes with narrow stiles and rails that are 3 1/4 inches wide, while the Premium Series offers a wider 5 1/8-inch stile and rail with a height range that can be expanded up 12 feet. The panels for both are 2 1/4 inches thick.
In addition, the redesigned multi-door systems feature strong, secure connections and ultra-smooth operation. Incorporating glass-reinforced, nylon endcaps, the side jambs connect to sills using an interlocking dovetail joint and head jambs via a click-together system. Other benefits include thermally efficient, pultruded fiberglass frames that helps create an Energy Star and Title 24 compliant door system meeting a 0.30 U-Value. Internal drainage system and optional sill risers also provide DP35 performance levels.
