Terrace Doors

Rising to New Heights

Crystal Window & Door Systems has re-engineered and redesigned its Aluminum Series 1450 out-swing and Series 1460 in-swing terrace doors. Both doors are now constructed with 0.093-inch wall thickness extrusion and a redesigned multi-chamber 3¼-inch jamb frame for high rise and wind prone installations. Polyamide strut thermal break and heavy-duty gasketing provide U-values as low as 0.32 and a high level of thermal performance. Additionally, the doors are customizable with color choices from a broad palette of standard and stock options, two-tone frame colors, as well as custom colors.

Systems for a PRO

AmeriPRO corrugated, concealed fastener, profiled panel systems are now available from Americlad. The systems offer six distinctive corrugated profiles manufactured from painted steal, painted and anodized aluminum and stainless steel in various gauges and finishes. Custom colors are also available in small batch runs. Additionally, the panels can be manufactured in .080-inch aluminum for higher traffic areas requiring more impact resistance. The systems also meet ASTM-E330 standards for structural performance.


A Smart Lock is the Key

INOX has developed a new smart lock, the ISM7000 Series smart mortise entry set. The product is available in any finish, trim or lever set available from the company and features customized lock settings for various locations. It features three-hour fire-rated mortise locks, and can be locked or unlocked remotely using a mobile phone or a low energy BLE/WIFI gateway.


Best to Date

All Weather Architectural Aluminum just introduced what officials say is its most highly optimized, energy-efficient window to date. Recognizing the need for large, high-performance custom aluminum windows, the Series 6100 window is the first window system engineered by the company to meet Title 24 compliance using the prescriptive method.

Series 6100 windows utilize a thermal strut system and offer double- and triple-pane glazing for maximum energy efficiency. The product features a robust 3-¾-inch frame, mitered corners and European corner keys for enhanced structural integrity to achieve a commercial performance grade, including for buildings up to 12 stories.

It is offered in fixed, casement, awning and combination configurations, with a maximum casement size of 48 inches by 96 inches and a maximum fixed lite size of 60 square feet. A contemporary Encore handle and European style Fapim operator are optional, as well as simulated and true divided lites. Class one clear and bronze anodized finishes offer maximum design flexibility.
