Lift & Slide Doors
Dynamic's Lift & Slide door series couples design flexibility with engineering and independent laboratory testing. The architect retains complete freedom to design the door, secure in the knowledge that the design details are proven to perform to the tested criteria. Lift & Slide door systems are typically used to create large glazed openings, or "moving walls of glass", and as such, are much like sails on a sail boat. They can catch a lot of wind. Most Lift & Slide door systems are built by millwork shops with no knowledge of whether they can perform under the site conditions. The architect, builder and homeowner have little choice but to keep their fingers crossed. Dynamic eliminates these liabilities through independent, verifiable laboratory testing and uses this expertize to protect our clients and their investment by identifying potential engineering issues and resolving them before the door system is built.
Dynamic's factory pre-finishing is particularly desirable for Lift & Slide doors. Pre-finish is applied at the component stage, prior to the installation of glazing, weather-strip or hardware, ensuring that the large hardware cavities required for the Lift & Slide hardware are fully sealed before the door leaves the factory. Multi-panel configurations up to 52' (15.9m) wide x 12' (3.7m) high.

Optionsglass hardware profiles split species factory pre-finishing security screens
- Lift & Slide low profile sill option for low exposures - however, interior flooring should be considered
- Wind loads and design pressure
- Lift & Slide hardware manufacturers recommend zero deflection on the head of the door system.
- Transoms should only be located over a Lift & Slide if there is a sufficient structural pack inbetween to ensure zero deflection.
