Aluminum Clad Lift & Slide Door

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. For this reason, Dynamic eliminates performance liabilities through independent, verifiable laboratory testing and uses this expertise to protect our clients and their investment by identifying potential engineering issues and resolving them before the door system is built.
