THERMAL FRAME MULTI-SLIDE & POCKET DOOR SYSTEM

Series 4070-T

The Series 4070-T provides the extreme size and performance advantages of ‘state of the art’ glass, along with our proprietary sleek, weather-tight sill.

Product Highlights

Enhancing Design
Slim Lines:

Fleetwood’s sliding door interlockers are among the slimmest on the market! Methodical engineering and aluminum thickness allow slender lines without compromising structural integrity.

 

Crisp, Linear Shapes:

Fleetwood’s design focus is the opposite of mass production. A prime example is the sharp edges and crisp lines created by a balance of hand tooling, automation and dedicated machining.

 

Huge Sizes:

Strength and beauty are demonstrated by Fleetwood’s unique ability to produce doors with massive pieces of glass. For example, it is common for a 30’ x 12’ opening to have just 3 vertical lines.

 

Robust Screen:

So many other doors are provided with a flimsy screen frame and cheap mesh. Our standard screen is the best sliding screen door made, period! Why? The screen utilizes the same frame and hardware as the glass panels and the highest quality mesh on the market (Ultra Vue).

“The Little Things”
Patented, USA-Made Hardware:

In 2005, Fleetwood began a two-year design project to create a better door latching system. The hardware market choices failed to meet Fleetwood’s quality level so we designed our own. The net result is the Archetype latching systems.

 

Fit & Finish:

We have gone to great lengths to make the appearance of our doors exceptional. Fleetwood includes cosmetic items that other manufacturers do not in order to cut costs, such as: Pocket Closers, Jamb Closers, Head Closers, and Sill Closers. These come standard on every custom sliding door by Fleetwood.

 

Swiss, Precision Bearings:

The Archetype roller comes standard with authentic precision bearings. Many others claim precision as a buzzword, but only Fleetwood partners with a Switzerland based manufacturer that specializes in precision bearings.

 

Stainless Track Inserts:

Fleetwood’s track is a solid aluminum base that receives a heavy gauge stainless steel insert that can be easily replaced. Cheaper designs offer a metal cap applied to an aluminum runner or plastic strut.

Superior Characteristics
Proprietary Flush Sill:

The Series 4070-T is the next generation of sliding door, featuring a unique lifestyle sill design for indoor/outdoor living and the ultimate minimalist. It is the first of its kind to have a completely flush design, allowing for finished floor between tracks, AND a rating for weather and energy.

 

Thermal Conductivity:

Aluminum is thermally stable in that it does not swell or shrink when the temperature or humidity levels change. Very little energy is lost through the frame material but in the case of wood and vinyl, energy is lost through the frame and vent seams after years of expansion and contraction.

 

Low Maintenance:

While every lifestyle product requires upkeep, Fleetwood products are resilient in even the extreme environments and come with a Lifetime Warranty.

 

Customizing Operation:

With the versatility and unlimited configuration options, you can create hundreds of custom systems, including but not limited to, multi-slide, stacking, pocketing, meeting, curved, corner, multi-corner and barn doors.

Energy, Noise & Security
High Efficiency Glass:

Modern glazing from Fleetwood coupled with increasingly efficient insulation techniques allows a minimalist design with huge glass that does not compromise energy consumption.

 

Thermal Break Technology:

Fleetwood products with a “T” in the series number are manufactured with thermally broken aluminum for condensation control and energy efficiency. For over 30 years, Fleetwood has designed products around this now sweeping practice and does so with extensive testing and engineering so the product maintains the look for the ultimate minimalist.

 

Security Benefits:

Fleetwood endeavors to make products better instead of cheaper, resulting in specialty products that other manufacturers should not attempt. High-security laminated glass (like your car windshield) coupled with robust Fleetwood framing can withstand severe impact.

 

Noise Control:

Fleetwood chooses to offer a wide range of options instead of limiting features to increase profit and simplify production. Sound dampening upgrades to glass and products are available without affecting the budget or design.

 

Fire/Heat Resistance:

Steel products are designed and rated to resist fire damage, but these products are limited in function and can be costly. While not rated, Fleetwood aluminum products offer great performance and style and actually help maintain wall integrity during a fire. Typical residential windows (wood or vinyl) add to the flame whereas extruded aluminum retains its form at over 1000 °F.

Proprietary Archetype Hardware

Archetype Rolling System
Dissatisfaction with overseas hardware and our endless pursuit towards “making it better” led us into a partnership with a Swiss bearing manufacturer. As a result of this union, our sliding doors come with rollers assembled in the USA, equipped with authentic Swiss bearings.
