Norwood 3050 "Hidden Threshold" Multi-slide & Pocket Door System
Lasts A Lifetime
Track Damage: The track has two components: An aluminum base and a stainless steel track insert. The insert is removable and thus easy to change without destroying the flooring. Other doors attempt a hidden track but track damage will require a total removal of the track and flooring.
Track Replacement: Most every other door on the market cuts corners when it comes to the rollers and the track. Our doors roll on a heavy guage stainless steel insert. This optimizes operation because the convex relationship of the track fits perfectly with the concavity of the wheel. Most other manufacturers have an aluminum sill and strap on a thin cap. Like most short cuts, this cap will deform and eventually come off.
Finish Upgrade: If your home is within 5 miles of salt water we strongly recommend Edge Armor. It is a finish procedure option that involves total fabrication of your doors BEFORE painting so all edges are armored with the same protective finish as the rest of the door. This option costs a little more but the value is well worth it! As well as the aesthetic benefit, Edge Armor comes with a 10-year warranty. It is only available in painted applications (no anodizing).
Fire Heat Resistance: There are window and door products designed and rated to resist the impingement of actual flames but these steel framed products are limited in function and design. Aluminum doors and windows offer great performance and style and actually help maintain wall integrity during a fire. The real enemy which often incinerates houses is heat or flying embers. Typical residential windows (wood or vinyl) are quickly damaged by heat and embers. Our extruded aluminum retains its form at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, helping to protect your home.
