Milgard Introduces Blinds Between the Glass on Popular Sliding Door Models

TACOMA, Wash. (June 16, 2011) - Milgard Windows & Doors introduces Tuscany® Series sliding patio doors with Blinds Between the Glass on both standard and French rail sliding patio doors. These quality doors contain durable aluminum slats that control light and privacy while protecting a home's finishes from harmful UV rays.

Blinds Between the Glass is a popular feature for homeowners who are looking for a simpler and safer blind alternative. The blinds are sealed in the glass unit allowing them to stay clean and free of debris, eliminating the need for dusting and cleaning of blinds. Magnetic lift and tilt controls keep the glass unit sealed and eliminate the need for external cords, making them safe for pets and small children. These durable doors also include the Milgard SmartTouch® door handle for ease of operation.

"Whether it's safety for the kids and pets, no maintenance, or just a better alternative to traditional window coverings, the sliding door with blinds between the glass is a smart choice for homeowners." says Keith Dashofy, Product Manager for Milgard.

Doors with blinds between the glass carry a 10 year warranty that includes both parts and labor. This warranty is transferrable if the home is sold. Milgard is one of the few window and door manufacturers that provide service rather than using subcontract labor. For full warranty details please visit
