STEEL / ALUMINUM FRAME
WON'T WARP, SAG OR ROT
LIKE WOOD SLIDING DOORS
The STEEL / ALUMINUM sliding door framing system is
fabricated from white, 20 gauge galvanized steel girts. By
using steel / aluminum the problems generally associated
with wood framed doors are virtually eliminated. These
problems include inconsistency of material, warping and
splitting of members.
The continuous guide rail has two very important functions.
The first is to hold the door panel firmly so the wind cannot
damage or destroy the door panel by lifting it away from
the side of the building. The other function is to guide the
door panel along the side of the building keeping the door
away from the building and thus eliminating any possible
damage to the siding on the building.
