Frenchwood® Gliding Patio Door


With their wide wood profiles, Frenchwood® gliding patio doors have the old-world character of traditional French doors, but also offer the convenience and space savings no hinged door can provide. Available with an extensive array of options and accessories in two- and four-panel configurations to fit virtually any size requirement.

Product Options
gliding door frame

Low-Maintenance

The sill has an extruded aluminum track, with a stainless steel cap that resists stain, rust and denting and an attractive wear-resistant, heat-baked finish in a neutral gray color.

The exterior frame is covered with rigid vinyl that maintains an attractive appearance while minimizing maintenance. The wood frame is treated with a water-repellent preservative for long-lasting protection and performance.  

A flexible vinyl weatherstrip provides a positive seal between the frame and panels.
