Patent Pending Proprietary Flush Sill (SFD-4):
The Series 4070-T is the next generation of sliding door, featuring a unique patent pending Arche-Duct draining system for indoor/outdoor living. It is ideal for the ultimate minimalist. It is the first of its kind to have a completely flush design, allowing for finished floor between tracks, AND a rating for weather and energy.
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.
While every lifestyle product requires upkeep, Fleetwood products are resilient in even the extreme environments and come with a Lifetime Warranty.
Buried Drop Seal:
Regardless of the closer, each panel comes with an additional seal that is concealed within the bottom rail (PDS). Once the panel engages the jamb frame, the seal will drop into place
With the versatility and unlimited configuration options, you can create hundreds of custom systems, including but not limited to, multi-slide, stacking, pocketing, meeting, corner, multi-corner and barn doors.
Energy, Noise & Security
High Efficiency Glass:
Modern glazing from Fleetwood coupled with increasingly efficient insulation techniques allows a minimalist design with huge glass that does not compromise energy consumption.
Thermal Break Technology:
Fleetwood products with a “T” in the series number are manufactured with thermally broken aluminum for condensation control and energy efficiency. For over 30 years, Fleetwood has designed products around this now sweeping practice and does so with extensive testing and engineering so the product maintains the look for the ultimate minimalist.
Fleetwood endeavors to make products better instead of cheaper, resulting in specialty products that other manufacturers should not attempt. High-security laminated glass (like your car windshield) coupled with robust Fleetwood framing can withstand severe impact.
Fleetwood chooses to offer a wide range of options instead of limiting features to increase profit and simplify production. Sound dampening upgrades to glass and products are available without affecting the budget or design.
Steel products are designed and rated to resist fire damage, but these products are limited in function and can be costly. While not rated, Fleetwood aluminum products offer great performance and style and actually help maintain wall integrity during a fire. Typical residential windows (wood or vinyl) add to the flame whereas extruded aluminum retains its form at over 1000 °F.
