Lift & Slide

This is no ordinary sliding door - our Lift & Slides create virtual moving walls of wood-framed glass panels that stack or disappear into a pocket, opening up living spaces to the outdoors. The weight of the panels rests on the solid floor surface and compresses the weather stripping, creating a weather-resistant seal. When you activate each handle, the panel lifts up onto a wheeled carriage, enabling it to slide easily and quietly along its track.

We manufacture panels out of either solid wood, wood with exterior aluminum cladding, or aluminum panels with 5/8" interior wood cladding for trouble-free maintenance. We offer a raised wood track for improved weather performance, or a recessed track that is made out of stainless steel, rather than aluminum, for better durability and resistance to corrosion. We will also match your custom cladding color at no extra charge using Kynar™ paint, a superior finish that minimizes UV fading.
