Finally … no threshold, no water, no problem!While sliding doors with completely flush tracks have been used for a long time in California, they’ve often been considered impossible in our Florida hurricane zone. Luckily, that’s not the case anymore. Over 30 years ago Weiland developed unique “lift and slide” doors that allow homeowners to keep interior and exterior floors at the same level without large drop downs and raised sills to keep the water out.Weiland_Windows_2And now, Weiland Sliding Doors by Andersen have Miami Dade High Velocity Hurricane Zone Product Approvals for these luxury lift and slide doors. Panel sizes up to 5’ x 12’, 6’ x 10’ or 7’x 8’ allow homeowners to have a completely flush interior and exterior floor with only 3/16” low profile rails. Pockets and open corners are fully approved to 12’ tall.Weiland_Windows_12Weiland_Windows_16Another very contemporary feature of the Weiland lift and slide doors is the symmetrical 3-1/2” wide frame profile around the entire perimeter of the panels. Square, clean lines provide a truly luxury aesthetic. What a perfect way to bring the outdoors, in.Finishes can be all aluminum or completed with durable Kynar paint to match your color palette. Interiors can be clad with wood, mahogany, walnut, or other species. If you’re interested in learning more about Weiland sliding doors, give us a call!
