Metal Window Aluminum 2500 Series Door is ideal for balcony and
patio use. All door panels are fully weather-stripped. Hinges
are screwed to door panels to assure strength. High impact
Teflon washers form an integral part of the finished hinge
assembly ensuring smooth, trouble free operation. All extrusions
are 6063-T6 or T5. Frames and ventilators corners are mitered,
reinforced with a 3/16” aluminum corner key and welded. All
muntins are mortised and welded into the frame to form
individually glazed lites.
Our 2500 Series Door uses our 2000 series extrusions and will
accommodate glazing thicknesses from 3/16” up to 1”. Several
muntin options are available to accommodate various heights,
aesthetics and structural specifications. Glazing stops are square
as standard and some slope stops options are also available. Our
2500 system was designed to offer a very lightly framed door to
accompany our 2000 series windows for a complete design package
that can be used equally well in either very contemporary or
traditional design applications. This line is also very popular
for interior door applications where natural light can easily
travel deeper into a structure. Privacy is obtained with a wide
range of obscure glass options available through our dealers.
Design Note: These doors should not be used in swing-in applications unless they are sheltered from exposure to direct weather.
