Durable, Long-lasting In-swing Patio Door Features Single-motion Multi-point Locking
LAS VEGAS (January 20, 2009) — Milgard's new fiberglass in-swing patio door offers builders and remodelers a durable, safe and easy to use door product for all of their new and replacement construction projects. Product features include PureView® sliding screens and single motion multi-point locking hardware. The new door line is backed by Milgard's Full Lifetime Warranty including glass breakage coverage.
The new patio door line is as attractive as it is durable—extending Milgard's position as a complete source for high quality fiberglass windows and doors. Designed to withstand wind, snow and rain, without peeling, swelling, expanding, contracting, cracking or warping, the doors are also impervious to cold, heat, insects, salt, air and corrosion.
"Builders can now offer their customers the beauty and remarkable durability of Milgard's fiberglass patio doors in an in-swing option," said Maureen Faccia, Director of Marketing for Milgard.
Milgard In-Swing Fiberglass Patio Doors Are Fully Loaded With Features
With its new offering, Milgard continues to build on its reputation of providing consumer-friendly, easy to use windows and doors. The in-swing patio door line features an intuitive, user-friendly 3-point locking system. The hardware offers robust, tapered hooks allowing the doors to be pulled smoothly into the frame against the gasket for a tight seal—a comforting safety feature that homeowners demand.
The doors also feature beautiful designer hardware with stainless steel handles to resist corrosion. The designer levers and full-length matching backplates offer a modern take on classic American door hardware design and are available in three painted colors and three different metal finishes.
The durable, easy to use lock also allows for auto-unlock from the inside with no deadbolt turning required to exit. With one downward motion all locking points are unlocked and the latch is retracted. An anti-slam feature prevents the hooks and deadbolt from extending when the door is opened, eliminating accidental damage to the door frame.
PureView® sliding screens on the in-swing door line allows homeowners to focus on the outside view instead of the screen in front of them. PureView is made of a durable flame-retardant fiberglass mesh screen, making it suitable for door and window applications. It also provides a multitude of benefits over other, standard screens, including improved light transmittance, better curb appeal when viewing doors and windows from the street, excellent insect protection due to 30 percent smaller openings than standard screens and improved air flow.
Included on the new doors is Milgard's Full Lifetime Warranty including glass breakage coverage. The warranty lasts as long as the homeowner owns or resides in the home, and, in addition, if the original owner moves within 10 years of installation, the full warranty transfers to all new owners for the remainder of the 10-year period. This warranty also pertains to owner-occupied multifamily residences. Coverage is extended to the original purchasing homeowner for as long as they own or reside in the home—including materials and labor.
Additional options on fiberglass in-swing patio doors include:
- Eight exterior colors—White, Tan, Sand, Brownstone, Hunter Green, Cranberry, Matte Black and Silver Pearl
- Glass—Tints, multiple obscure styles and laminated
- Grids—Color-matched grids in assorted patterns
