ZERO EDGE MULTI-SLIDE & POCKET DOOR SYSTEM

EDGE | s |

EDGE_s Multi-Slide Pocket Corner Door
The EDGE Collection was designed to conceal as much frame as possible for a ‘zero edge’ experience.  The EDGE | s | was created specifically for multi-panel and pocket applications.

Product Highlights

Exceptional Hardware
The 3+ year design of the EDGE | s | was largely due to the formation of proprietary hardware, unlike EVERYTHING else in the market.

 

Finger Operation:

Each sliding panel glides on a series of 2” diameter stainless-steel wheels every 4”, making the | s | the smoothest rolling door on the global market. The wheels are housed in stainless-steel Sheaves, which can easily be removed for cleaning.

 

Archetype Blade:

To achieve a zero-edge at each wall, we use a simple approach for locking the lead panel. Fleetwood’s Archetype Blade is mortised within the Fin-Keep or Fin-Lead Stile cavity so as not to disrupt the view. The Blade is made of marine grade stainless steel and operates in a simple up and down path.

 

Blade Case:

When the Archetype Blade is lowered into the locked position, the tapered tip slips into a stainless-steel Case, which is buried flush in the finished floor.

 

Fin-Pull:

To achieve the thinnest vertical sightlines, customers should opt for our standard Keeps. In this minimal arrangement, the Fin-Lead Stile will come with our exclusive stainless-steel Fin-Pull to retrieve the panel from the embedded jamb.

Practical Performance
The EDGE | s | was designed for luxury home applications anywhere in the world.

 

Water Performance:

With its unique Arche-Duct drain system, the EDGE | s | far exceeds residential water performance needs and does so with a narrow 5/8” Keel Slot and 3/16″ Slot Drain.

 

Thermal Performance:

The EDGE | s | perimeter frame is fitted with thermal barriers to maximize thermal performance. Depending on the glass chosen, a U-Factor as low as .31 can be achieved.

 

Storm Winds:

Though only 1” wide, the Keep/Keep pairing was engineered for exceptional strength. At 10’ tall, this slim combination withstands a Design Pressure 15. When adding one Fin-Keep, it improves to 20. For those interested in maximum wind performance, we insert aluminum stiffeners into a pair of Fin-Keeps to achieve a Design Pressure 75.

 

Deflection Resistance:

Though minimal, the EDGE | s | is a robust defender against wind-driven deflection. The strength comes from the continuous engagement of the stainless-steel Archetype Keel with the A4-E Sheaves.

Minimal, Not Marginal
The essential design intent of the EDGE Collection was ‘more glass, less frame.’

 

Minimal Exposure:

The only sightline is the narrow bottom rail at 1-3/8” and the sleek verticals at 1”. The remaining extrusions disappear into the surrounding finishes.

 

Bottom Rail Design:

The | s | bottom rail is pure Archetype genius. Its strength is achieved through the extruded stainless-steel Keel and integral Glass Keys. As with a yacht, the Keel guides and stabilizes the panel.

 

5/8” Keel Slot:

The | s | Keel Slot is slightly wider than similar designs BUT with smart purpose. Other doors require removing the floor to perform basic cleaning whereas the | s | does not.

 

Integrated Wheels:

After each Sheave is arranged in the Keel Slot, a black aluminum Sheave Cover is attached, which exposes only the contact points of each wheel through each mortised opening.

Unique Design Features
The EDGE | s | offers many design features unique to Fleetwood.

 

Meeting Verticals:

In typical meeting stile (or bi-parting) systems, the sightline is doubled at the meeting point because the meeting panels share the same track, resulting in a chunky sightline. Not so with the EDGE |s |. Fleetwood’s engineers created an offset arrangement called a Reverse Keep that maintains the slender 1” sightline of an in-line system.

 

Corner Doors:

The same Reverse Keep ingenuity used for meeting stiles is used for a 90-degree NO POST corner door.

 

Staggered Tracks:

The standard for our EDGE | s | door is a staggered threshold to maximize flooring and reduce Keel slots.

Homeowner Sustainable Features
The EDGE | s | is the only door in its category with practical features that allow for a lifetime product.

 

Local Glass Replacement:

The | s | comes with a maintenance kit that includes a proprietary Glass Key, allowing for future field glazing if needed. Competing designs require replacement glass to be sourced from the factory, some of which are in Europe, adding to the time and cost of glass replacement.

 

REAL Lifetime Guarantee:

The product warranty goes with the house, regardless of ownership. Others offer a limited warranty to the ‘original purchaser’ who is the builder in most cases.

 

Practical Maintenance:

Each Sheave can be easily extracted without removing the panel or the finished floor, allowing for a quick roller and sill cleaning. Similar systems involve flooring damage or extensive maintenance.

 

Limited Dealer Access:

EDGE Collection products are only available through the top 20% of our Authorized Dealer family, so you can buy the very best from the very best!

Construction Sustainable Features
The EDGE | s | was created for practical construction.

 

Construction Cost Savings:

The shallow 2 ½” Arche-Duct costs less to install than typical door styles, especially in upper floors. Most other systems require at least 6” of depth and have complicated pedestals to hold the finished floor.

 

Protection During Construction:

The Slot Cap is a sacrificial aluminum extrusion to prevent debris from filling the Slot during construction. It also provides the floor contractor with a linear guide during setting.

Finishes, Glass & Warranty
The EDGE | s | is offered in a variety of glass types and frame finishes with an unrivaled warranty.

 

Colors & Finishes:

The | s | frame is stocked in Clear (Class 1) and Black (Class 1) anodized finishes, both of which come with a 20-year warranty. Custom painted or anodized colors are also available and come with an industry-leading 12-year warranty REGARDLESS of location.

 

Factory Glazed:

The | s | is the only door in its class offered with factory glazing. This means the panels arrive fully assembled, helping to ensure the design integrity of the door. What’s more, a careful review of our lifetime warranty will show the glass to be backed by the best warranty in the industry. Transferable Lifetime Warranty

 

Low-Iron Glass:

The EDGE Collection was designed for homes with an elite view. Fleetwood, therefore, recommends using a low-iron glass because of its superior clarity and energy performance. Be aware, though, that low-iron glass from Europe may not possess the same clarity as low-iron glass from the USA.
