Lift-and-Slide

Transform your living space with more natural light and large openings.  Our European lift-and-slide doors are engineered for extra-large openings to offer unobstructed views, abundant natural light, and seamless indoor-outdoor living – without compromising ease of operation, performance or security.

 

Lift-and-Slide Operation

A simple turn of the handle disengages the secure locking mechanism and effortlessly lifts the door upwards off the compression seals, allowing it to smoothly glide along a series of rollers in the track.  The door slides free of the air-tight seals, eliminating wear and making opening and closing effortless.

The door can also be lowered and locked in any partially-open position.

When in the closed position, our lift-and-slide doors deliver an air-tight seal around the entire frame thanks to multiple compression seals.  This coupled with our multi-point locking system, dramatically increases energy efficiency.

Our lift-and-slide doors feature a very low threshold that can easily be flush-mounted into your floor for a continuous surface from the inside to the outside.  The flush-mount threshold is an excellent choice for homes that need greater ease of accessibility for mobility devices, for high-traffic doors, or simply for homeowners who appreciate beautiful finishing details.

European Lift-and-Slide Doors v.s. Standard Sliding Doors

Standard sliding doors are more prone to air and water leakage due to an inherent design flaw and lack of compression seals.  In order for these panels to function and slide, they cannot have seals.  Instead they are equipped with loose-fitting bristle-brushes along the sliding edges and, in most cases, around the entire perimeter of the door.  Because these doors do not “lift and slide” away from their weather-stripping, the opening and closing motion is constantly causing friction and rubbing against the bristle-brushes, causing deformation, wear-and-tear and compromising their energy efficiency.
