Vinyl Tilt Slide Doors
A uPVC vinyl tilt slide door system has a dual functioning operation similar to a tilt and turn window; an individual panel tilts into the room with a hopper function. The hopper action allows fresh air into a room, without requiring the sliding the door panel to be in an open position, saving space.A measure of security is also present while the door is tilted to the hopper position. Small children and pets are protected from falling out of the door, as it is only slightly open at the top.When the door needs to be used for entering or exiting, it functions like a typical sliding door with one panel sliding behind a fixed panel. Customers are not required to have the door fully open or fully closed, the operable panel can be stopped at any location on the track. Vinyl tilt slide doors can not be opened from the exterior, providing an additional level of security to the building or home.
Vinyl tilt slide door units’ framing, is available in three core finish colors: white, beige, or clay.
Other color options are also available, including: almond, black, red velvet, browns, silver, and several faux wood finishes.
One of the benefits of uPVC vinyl framing is the minimal required maintenance, as there is no repainting required and rotting is not as issue. Vinyl framing does not conduct heat or cold, and by removing the transfer of temperatures, the framing remains stable and more energy efficient. The tilt slide hardware used on the doors includes a compression seal and quiet hardware components, which provide an easy glide when moving the panels.
All glazing used in the uPVC vinyl tilt slide doors is insulated including two pieces of tempered glass with an air space. Low-E tints are typically recommended to provide additional thermal values. Tempered glass is always used in a door as it is very strong and will withstand standard household wear and tear. Should the glass break, it will crack into small round pieces, preventing sharp edges.
