Boral Windows’ new gliding patio door system is made for design flexibility, with a wide range of customization options. The individual systems are available in two, three, and four-panel configurations, and range up to 8 feet high and 16 feet wide.
The saddle-style doors glide on stainless-steel rollers and vinyl rails, and feature a mechanical frame and welded sash, dual-seal weather stripping, and internal weep system. The frame system is knocked-down, allowing for easy transport and on-site assembly for contractors.
“Our new patio door is the perfect combination of form and function: Beautiful, expansive views, alongside meticulous quality to stand up to whatever Mother Nature has in store,” says David Decker, president of Boral Windows. “Contractors can provide the look and outdoor lifestyles homeowners crave without installation hassles or concern about callbacks.”
The door frames carry a DP-50 class performance rating, and may be specified with impact-rated glass. LoE insulated glass, which provides an R-value of 3.33, and dual LoE insulated glass, which provides an R-value of 4.35, are also available. Specifications include multiple grid patterns, multi-point locking hardware with a keyed lock, screen options, and between-the-glass blinds. The blinds provide increased privacy while retaining the glass door’s streamlined appearance.
The Boral Windows patio door system is currently available in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, the Florida Panhandle, Tennessee, and North and South Carolina. The frames are available in white or beige finishes as standard, with commercial bronze and black exterior finishes also available. boralamerica.com
