Sliding Doors provide maximum daylight with their narrow panel profile. Sliding door operation can be selected as Left or Right, as viewed from the exterior. Available as two panel units, three panel units (with Fixed single unit mulled to one side), or four panel unit with two operating center panels.

Exterior uses heavy-gauge extruded aluminum for strength, durability and resistance to weather and abuse. This product has a factory baked on exterior finish that is available in white, sand, bronze, dark bronze, red, green, and black.

The door interior features pine on the frame and pine veneer covered laminate door panel rails and stiles that are suitable for a natural (clear) finish, staining or painting. The standard door panel is considered a full glass door, with maximum daylight opening.

Grille systems, for visually dividing the glass area, are available in a range of styles, sizes and patterns. This includes Sun's Simulated Divided Lite (SDL), Interior Wood Grille and GBGs (grilles between the glass). Blinds between the glass are also available on panels that do not have grilles.

All door panels are glazed with Tempered Glass. Select one of our climate-targeted, Low-E insulated glass configurations to take advantage of Sun's best energy performance combination for your region. All Sun IG units use the Duralite™ warm-edge spacer system, a non-metallic spacer that provides the lowest thermal conductivity and best gas retention of any IG spacer system.

Clad Extruded Aluminum Exterior

Clad Extruded Aluminum Exterior

This products uses heavy-gauge extruded aluminum for its exterior frame and sash/panel components. Aluminum is highly resistant to the effects of weather. It does not rust like other metal. It does not rot or decay, warp or distort like wood. It does not break down chemically over time like vinyl or fiberglass. Heavy gauge extruded aluminum will not easily dent like Roll Form aluminum wrapped over a wood sash exterior. It provides exceptional strength and long life for the product and it is an excellent surface for its factory applied baked on finish.

• Superior Strength - for the frame and sash
• More Durable - protects interior wood components
• Protects the Home better
• Durable Factory Finish

Wood Interior

Sun door interiors feature finger-jointed ponderosa pine on the frame, LVL (laminated veneer lumber) on the panel rails and stiles. The wood interior is suitable for a natural (clear) finish, staining or painting. The standard door panel is considered a full glass door, with the side stiles and top & bottom rails measuring about 5" in width.

Optional solid panel inserts, or kick panels, are available to reduce the glass portion of the door panel. These solid panels are beveled wood on the interior with a flat SunClad exterior surface. An additional decorative aluminum molding shadow box can be applied to the exterior of the panel as a visual accent.

Sliding Door Configurations

Sliding Doors are available as 2 panel units, 3 panel units (a 2 panel unit with a Fixed unit mulled to one side), and 4 panel units (with 2 opening panels in the center). The operating panel can be ordered as left or right sliding, as viewed from the outside. See the configurations below.

Sliding Door units may have a Fixed unit mulled next to them. Transoms, Round Tops and Arch Top can be mulled above most door units. The main restriction is that the overall combined unit width cannot exceed 12' and the height cannot exceed 8'. Larger combinations may be mulled on site. Please note that mulled units are not designed to take the place of structural framing. In some instances it is better to order your units "aligned" but not mulled. This means that they will be built with the proper grille alignment to be installed beside or above each other, but the wall will have structural framing separating the units into smaller combinations or single units. More information on combination units is available under Mulls and Mulling.

SDL
SDL or Simulated Divided Lite, is an aluminum grille bar permanently applied to the exterior glass surface and a wood grille permanently applied to the interior glass surface. A black shadow bar is sealed between the glass. This simulates old divided lite windows without sacrificing the benefits of a single insulated glass unit. Available in 5/8", 1" , 1-1/4" and 2-1/4" (simulated mull) wide profiles. Also available in a Raised (Putty Glazed) bar profile in 5/8" and 1-1/4".

SCR
Simulated Check Rail is a variation of our SDL using a wide 2-1/4" bar horizontally across a Casement or Fixed Lite window to simulate the look of a Double Hung window.

SM
Simulated Mull is another variation of our SDL using a wide 2-1/4" bar vertically. One or two of these can be placed in the center of a wide Casement or Fixed Lite to simulate the look of two windows joined together or two sashes side by side.

Wood Grille (Push-Pin style)
This removable wood grille mounts to the window interior. Grille clips with push-pin points slide in notches at the end of each grille bar to fasten the grille to the window. Removing the grille makes it easier to clean the glass. Wood grilles are available in 1" and 1-1/4" wide profiles.

Wood Grille (Surround style)
Also available is a wood surround grille that has wood frame around the perimeter of the grille. This inserts into the daylight opening of the sash and is held in place by an anchor pin.

GBG
GBG (Grilles Between Glass) are 3/4" contoured profiled aluminum grilles sealed within the insulated glass unit for no-maintenance convenience. Available in White, Vanilla, Beige, Sand, Bronze, Black, Green and Red colors. They are also available in two color combinations (one color facing the interior the other facing the exterior) of White/Sand and White/Bronze.

Product Combinations
SunClad™ products can be combined with companion products to form special feature windows or window and door combinations. SunClad™ products are designed so that they can be easily grouped together to form multi-unit configurations. These configurations can be as simple as combining two units together, side by side, to form a 2-wide unit, or as complex as combining multiple units of various styles and shapes to form a special feature window wall. Send us your ideas and we will help you configure your special combination.

Mulled Unit Dimensions
When mulling SunClad products together, the over-all unit size can be determined by adding the product unit sizes together. For combinations of 3 units or more, an incidental gain may occur. Increase the Rough Opening dimension by 1/8" for 3 units or 3/16" for four units.

Mulled Unit Restrictions
The maximum over-all size for a factory mulled unit cannot exceed 12' by 8' (vertical or horizontal).
Maximum units wide = 5
Maximum units high = 4
Maximum Door Mulled Unit = 6-0 x 6-8 with Call Height 12 Transom
No units can be mulled to the sides of True French Doors. Use separate framing.
