Lift Slide Doors and Windows
Lift Slide doors provide an alternative to traditional patio doors. These units are controlled with a simple turn of the wrist and push or pull. Turning the handle allows the unit to move, by lifting the door and removing the pressure on the gaskets for easy mobility. Simply rotating the handle down reseals the door and provides security and thermal performance.
Solar Innovations, Inc. now offers two lift slide doors, also available in window sizes. Each lift slide door is constructed out of thermally isolated aluminum frames which will not rot, warp, rust, or require constant finish maintenance.
Lift slide doors are a variation of a traditional sliding door; the basic design remains the same, with panels that slide on a track. Pocketing doors are available options with lift slide doors on one side or both left and right sides.
Both doors are offered in four standard colors: White, Bronze, Clear Anodized, and Dark Bronze Anodized; additional custom colors are available. Glazing units can range from 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch infills using virtually any type of glass. Monolithic options are possible but will require special engineering. The following are differences in a lift slide system as compared to a traditional multi-track sliding door.
