Natural light is essential for our mental and physical well-being. Studies have repeatedly proven the ability to improve everything from moods and productivity to a good night’s sleep.
And that’s just a few of the many reasons why the wide, expansive and unobstructed views of window and patio doors are now among the most popular trends in today’s real estate market. This includes seamlessly transitioning from the indoors to the outdoors with views that effortlessly expand living spaces, drench rooms in natural light and connect interiors with the natural beauty of surrounding spaces.
As a leader in “living space” creations, Weather Shield recently embraced these stylistic demands with the addition of its newly-redesigned multi-slide doors to its Contemporary Collection™ and Premium Series® of aluminum-clad wood windows and patio doors. In addition to combining improved performances with easy assemblies, the new systems provide the slim-line appearances and luxe styling needed to create warm, inviting interiors that maximize light and easily transition to the great outdoors with broad, expansive views.
enhanced creative options for ambiance & bathing entire rooms with natural sunlight
Weather Shield’s multi-slide doors are ideal for creating unobstructed flows that seamlessly integrate nature and natural sunlight with virtually any interior design. When open, you can produce one large room that smoothly flows onto decks, patio and other outdoor living areas. And when closed, you’re left with two intimate spaces that feed off of the beauty and unique, artistic stylings of each environment.
Achieved with Weather Shield’s newly-enhanced multi-slide door designs that range from 2-panel sliders to 10-pocket sliding doors, each system imbues users with the ability to comfortably stack multiple panels or even tuck them into walls to generate extraordinarily wide openings, facilitate large gatherings and luxuriously harmonize indoors with magnificent exterior views.
a limitless selection of multi-slide door options
Beauty, utility and meticulous craftsmanship are hallmarks of Weather Shield’s Contemporary Collection™ and Premium Series® of aluminum-clad wood windows and patio doors. Customized to meet nearly every architectural specification, our redesigned multi-slide patio doors are available in traditional stacked configurations or hidden inside pocket walls to create seamless transitions to the outdoor world. This includes widths of up to 57′, heights of up to 12′ and two panel variations that produce the clean, balanced lines necessary for enabling spectacular panoramic views and drenching interiors with broad swatches of natural light.
