Flush Tracks

Our tracks are made of hardened, anodized aluminum and have withstood the test of time in harsh weather environments. Andersen’s standard and patented drainage flush track systems are tested and meet AAMA performance standards, making them reliable and secure in severe weather conditions.

 

Our tracks integrate with your design ideas. The first thing that stands out about our two flush track options is that they project only 3/16″ above the finished floor, creating a seamless transition from inside to outside, with no obstacles to trip over. Additionally, the flush tracks on multi-panel units are staggered, avoiding the railroad track look of most other door systems


Liftslide Flush Track with Transverse Drains

Flush Track with Transverse Drains

The Andersen standard flush track was tested as part of a five panel pocketing, 16′ tall liftslide system and certified under AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/1.S.2/A440 testing protocol for operating force, air leakage resistance, water penetration resistance, uniform load deflection, uniform load structural, and forced entry resistance.
Liftslide Patented Flush Drainage Track

Patented Flush Drainage Track

Andersen has a tested 12' tall panel pocketing & non pocketing Liftslide Systems that meet Florida and Hallmark Hurricane Rated requirements using Andersen's patented full drainage track. The flooring used in both test systems was a smooth surface at exactly 3/16″ below the top of the track, extending into the pockets.
