Why Pay For Less When You Can Have More
Five Year Warranty On 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.
