TACOMA, Wash. (June 14, 2011) - Milgard Windows & Doors introduces Fiberglass ADA French Doors, providing a solution to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliancy and consistency throughout a project. Milgard is known for their popular door models such as the WoodClad™ and Ultra™ Series In-swing and Out-swing Doors. This virtually identical door meets ADA requirements with a 32-inch clear opening, 10-inch bottom rail and 1/2-inch sill for universal access. It is sold as a complete pre-hung door system.
"The idea for this door came from our customers. They were looking for an ADA door that had the aesthetics of a traditional door and could match the color and style of our standard windows and doors," said Jim Sheehan, Product Manager for Milgard. "This door helps eliminate a barrier in buildings for people with disabilities and gives the ability to have matching ADA and non-ADA doors throughout the project."
The ADA Fiberglass Door is available in all fiberglass Essence, WoodClad and Ultra Series exterior colors. This makes it easy to use both standard and ADA doors in the same project and achieve a similar look.
"The Milgard ADA door works perfectly for our Verano Place student housing project at UCI (University of California, Irvine)" said Miles Doig with PCL Construction. "We wanted to buy windows and doors from the same manufacturer and with Milgard we could do just that. The color, quality and warranty will be consistent."
This new ADA Door carries the same 10-Year Multi-Family warranty on parts and labor that is standard on Milgard French door systems. Milgard is one of the few window and door manufacturers that provide service rather than using subcontract labor. For full warranty details please visit milgard.com.
