Strength & Beauty
Low profile, adjustable stainless hinges (AHT) are complimentary of the slim extrusions, yet strong enough to handle a 40″ wide by 108″ tall panel
In order to align with modern architecture, frames are butt joined instead of mitered. In order to achieve this feature and maintain strength, we needed an exceptional corner key. The wall thickness exceeds 5/16″ in most locations and penetrates 4-1/4″.
Aluminum is thermally stable in that it does not swell or shrink when the temperature or humidity levels change. Very little energy is lost through the frame material but in the case of wood and vinyl, energy is lost through the frame and vent seams after years of expansion and contraction.
Modern Thermal Design:
Many hinged doors on the market come standard with glazing stops on the interior and exterior, which adds more seams to draw the eye. The Series 3900-T comes with one stop only.
Crisp, Linear Shapes:
Fleetwood’s design focus is the opposite of mass production. A prime example is the sharp edges and crisp lines created by a balance of hand tooling, automation, and dedicated machining.
Fleetwood hinged doors come standard with FSB stainless steel levers for an uncompromising, sleek design. A self-latching lock (2-PT) is complimented by a thumb turn deadbolt with an optional keyed cylinder.
Steel Door Look:
Fleetwood offers a simulated divided lite which resembles a classic beveled design of a steel door, allowing the beauty of steel without the immense cost or limitations of steel.
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of the Series 3200-T is its ability to achieve a slim 4″ metal reveal at the jamb after a designated portion is buried in the wall.
