Weather Shield Multi-Slide DoorFebruary 8th, 2016 by Editor
Weather Shield Windows & Doors has introduced its new multi-slide door in the Premium Series and the Contemporary Collection to accommodate openings as large as 50 feet wide and 10 feet tall in high-end custom homes.
The new multi-slide door is available in single and bi-parting configurations, as well as a 90-degree corner configuration. It can either nest at the end of the track or recess manually, or with the push of a button inside a wall cavity for full-width passage. It will be available for order through Weather Shield dealers in March 2016.
Available in the Premium Series or the Contemporary Collection (5-1/8-inch or 3-1/4-inch bottom rail), the multi-slide door has an extruded aluminum clad exterior and wood interior. It features a standard or high performance sill, and corrosion-resistant adjustable rollers. The flush handle is available in brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze (PVD) and black.
The automated, recessing door configuration can be controlled by a push-button panel on the wall or can be connected to most smart-home systems, including Wink, Z-Wave and others. The system also includes sensors to prevent the door from closing on a person or object. The door will also stop closing if it meets a small amount of resistance. Should the power go out, the motorized system has a battery backup to power a limited number of operations.
