Lift & Slide Doors
Quality construction, thermal integrity and ease of use are standard characteristics of our lift and slide doors. Our hardwood frames create strength and durability. Our custom hardware is engineered to provide almost effortless movement — even in the heaviest constructions — by lifting the door onto its carriage and rolling or sliding the panels to open. The hardware also allows for positive stopping at all intermediate openings. Custom built to any size your designs call for, these doors instantly become a signature in the homes and buildings where they are used.

All glazing is per project specifications. Duratherm can accommodate most configurations and make-ups from 1/8" single glazed to a maximum of 1" security glass.
Doubled, continuous extruded silicone flap gasket set in rebate around the perimeter of the door leaf. Rotating the multi-latchpoint lever handle lowers the door and compresses the weather-strip to ensure a tight seal.
The minimums and maximums shown are intended as guidelines. For applications that exceed these ranges, please contact the factory for assistance.
NOTE: Standard wood threshold may not meet ADA maximum height requirements.

Wood Species & Finishes
Duratherm sources all materials by project — from only providers we know and trust. Many of our woods are from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC- C108949) certified sources. We obtain others from sustainably harvested plantations. Fourteen domestic and exotic wood species offer a wide range of colors, grains, and textures.
Please contact us for information about finishing options (including paint, Sikkens, clear lacquer, stain, bleach stain, oil, etc.) and to discuss the use of a species not in our standard offering. We consider availability, durability, machining, and gluing characteristics to determine the feasibility of your choices.

Specially developed extruded silicone gasket sets the glass by compression. Our proprietary system is long-lived, low maintenance and water resistant.
Our special silicone wet glazing compound bonds to the glass for long-lived sealing. Plus, our continuous extruded silicone weatherstrip runs around the frame perimeter and the seal is not compromised by seasonal expansion and contractions of the sash and frame.
