Vantage Metro Series Sliding Doors
Description

Metro Series sliders move on an external track with fixed sidelight. External sliding doors optimise weathertightness and ensure suitability in demanding locations.

Extra sill support is available in stacking sliders with projecting external tracks. Note that because of the external sliding feature opening windows cannot be placed in adjoining sidelights. Overlights are possible.

Key Features
  • Recommended maximum 2400mm high doors in Extra High wind zones — For larger sizes consider using the APL Architectural Series
  • The system is bottom rolling with an in-frame track for optimum panel support
  • Metro occupies an intermediate position between Vantage Residential and the APL Architectural Series
  • A lay-back option is available for certain configurations (2-panel and 2+2) where the open panels fold back against an adjoining wall for an unobstructed deck (may require completion of opening from the exterior)
  • Lay-back panels require the facing to be within 15mm of final finished cladding line in order to achieve 180º opening
  • A rebated sill track option is available in sheltered locations
