Tilt & Slide Doors
Kolbe Teutonic® Series tilt & slide doors offer high performance and an alternative to standard swinging doors, especially when space is at a premium. The use of compression seal technology and innovative hardware elevate this unit's performance well above a standard sliding patio door. The panels have 2-15/16" wide stiles and rails as standard, however, optional 3-7/8" wide stiles and rails are available.*
Tilt & slide doors are manufactured with specialized hardware that allows the door panel to tilt inward at the top, providing secure ventilation. Or, the door panel can slide open smoothly to a fully-opened position.
Compression seal technology is the basis for the design of Teutonic Series products. Dual overlapping neoprene gaskets provide excellent air and water resistance. As proof of their performance, Teutonic Series tilt & slide doors are tested by independent agencies and rated as follows:
- Total unit U-Factors from 0.20 to 0.44, depending on the specific glazing options selected
- Units are rated up to a CW-PG55
- Impact-rated for IPD4 with a D80 performance*
- Condensation Resistance ranges from 41 to 67
*3-7/8" wide stiles & rails are required to meet impact requirements.
