FIRST Residential Sliding Doors
Description

FIRST residential sliders have a 'flushline' sill and easy-glide panels that cope effortlessly with heavier, double glazed doors. The clean lines and simplified styling can be accentuated even further by rebating the frame into the floor pad for a flush floor-to-frame look.

FIRST sliders are rated to 2.1m high in 'very high' wind zones. For higher doors consider using the Metro Series or APL Architectural Series.

Key Features
  • For mainstream residential use
  • Recommended maximum 2100mm high doors in Extra High wind zones. For larger sizes consider using the Metro Series and APL Architectural Series
  • Flush sills facilitate easier indoor-outdoor movement 
  • Single sliding, double sliding, and Multi Slider options
  • A 4-panel option is available (i.e. three stacking panels)
  • Doors slide on the inside of fixed panels
  • Corner sliders without a corner post are possible — either exterior or interior corner formats
  • Interlocker stiles are flush in the closed position for a clean look.
