Architects and builders now have more choices with sliding patio doors by AMSCO
Windows® to help bring the outdoors into their homes. New for 2007 are additional
designs, sizes and options that will add a distinctive element to their homes.
Each AMSCO sliding patio door entranceway is manufactured to create an inviting
entrance to any home's patio, deck or courtyard.
Renaissance Series sliding patio doors
AMSCO has added new three-panel and four-panel configurations to its Renaissance®
Series composite sliding patio door line. With sizes up to 16' wide and 8' tall,
homeowners can select these sliding patio doors in multiple configurations to
best suit their home's design. Renaissance Series sliding patio doors feature
narrow sash and frame profiles that offer homeowners a maximum viewing area.
Heritage Series sliding patio doors
With the addition of a new four-panel sliding patio door in the Contemporary
style, AMSCO has added a new French rail style sliding patio door. The new Heritage
Series French style sliding patio door is available in two-, three- and four-panel
configurations and boasts a 6-1/2" bottom rail height for a more natural
French rail style look. The Heritage Series sliding patio doors are available
in sizes up to 16' wide and 8' tall in both the Contemporary and French styles.
"Many times, entertaining is done in connection with the home's patio
or deck," said Steve Sullivan, director of marketing at AMSCO Windows.
"The patio has become a place to entertain and cook, whether it's to host
birthday parties, holiday events or just hang out. A uniquely designed patio
entranceway can make a home feel bigger by bringing the outdoors in and all
the fun that comes with it."
Designers can create their own masterpiece for their patio entranceway with
AMSCO through the multiple features and options available:
Sizes - Customers may specify custom sizes in two-, three- and four-panel configurations
in both the Heritage Series and Renaissance Series sliding patio doors.
Door panels - Panels on the Heritage Series French style sliding patio door
are available with standard 4-1/2" stiles and a 6-1/2" bottom rail
for a more natural French style look. The Renaissance Series and Heritage Series
Contemporary sliding patio doors offer a narrow frame and sash that allows a
maximum viewing area for a more traditional look.
Colors - White, Almond and Taupe are available on all of AMSCO's sliding patio
doors. In addition, Heritage Series Contemporary style sliding patio doors offer
a Bronze exterior with a White interior. And, with the Renaissance Series, a
Pine Wood veneer interior is also available.
Optional Hardware - Standard handle hardware is color matched to the frame
for a uniform look. And, coming soon, designers and homeowners will have the
option of selecting a variety of plated finishes to match any home's décor.
Grids/Grilles - Grids between the glass are offered in both the Heritage Series
and Renaissance Series sliding patio doors. In addition, simulated divided light
grilles are available with the Renaissance Series for a more traditional look.
Interior grids are available in flat or sculptured profiles while exterior grilles
are available in a sculptured profile only.
Operation - Designers and architects can choose from different panel configurations
that best suit the home's functionality. By offering the flexibility for specifying
the location of the operating panels, customers are better equipped to make
the home's layout and available space meet their needs.
Complementary Sidelites and Transoms - Sidelites and transoms are available
and may be added to any sliding patio door to allow architects and contractors
to create unique, light-filled patio door entranceway combinations.
Each sliding patio door is manufactured to exacting dimensions and quality.
They feature the highest quality hardware and come with AMSCO's full lifetime
warranty that coversboth materials and labor for as long as you own your home.
