This new platform of vinyl sliding glass doors is unique because they can be ordered with up to four vinyl tracks and as tall as ten feet high. Another feature exclusive to the new design will enable builders and installers to reconfigure the door in the field with interchangeable and reversible panel interlocks. Panels can be installed or removed from the interior or exterior, so condo applications are simple.
