Steel-Arte 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.

The glass fiber-reinforced composite thermal break provides exceptional strength and stability while providing superior thermal performance with a wide array of dual & triple glazing combinations. The European lift and slide hardware and the smooth rolling ball bearing wheel systems makes sliding the heavy steel panels almost effortless.

Related applications

  • Lift & Slide low profile sill option for low exposures – consider interior flooring
  • 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
