CLEAN & CLUTTER-FREE

Designed with special aluminum extrusions that are Built To Last for both framed or unframedacrylic or fiberglass door systems.

FORGIVING GLIDE SYSTEM WITH THESE FEATURES:

Door slides easily even if the door or track is twisted. Glides work like a cylinder within a cylinder so that the glides center themselves in the track and can rotate around the track to compensate for misalignment. The glides have unique 45° thrust bars that take side loads that are common with Companionway doors that are formed at 90°.

ALUMINUM EXTRUSIONS CAP THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE DOOR

They enclose the glides to minimize the problems with dirt being kicked into them. The glides also tend to shed dirt. The extrusions form a labyrinth seal that seals the top and bottom of the door from rain and dirt. The Slide Extrusion is two pieces and sandwiches the acrylic or fiberglass. The acrylic is slotted so the door can be adjusted to the boat surface. This provides a tight grip to lock down on the acrylic and it also stiffens the top and bottom of the door. The Slide and rail can be mounted horizontally and vertically. There are recessed slots in the slide for easy mounting of the door system.

EASIER INSTALLATION

The assemblies are easy to install due to their uniformity because both the acrylic and the metal parts are CNC machined. Unique female fasteners that are almost invisible on the clamp bar allow stainless steel flat head screws to be used to tighten the extrusions down on the acrylic. Serrations—both on the clamp bar and rail—lock the acrylic in place after installation adjustments. Our door system is so unique it is patented.

EASY FIELD REPLACEMENT OF DOOR

The acrylic door can be removed without removing the slides and rails or the frame by loosening the screws on the clamp bar from the back.

BUILT-IN STOPS

There is a unique open door stop that is attached to the slide. It pivots into position to hold the door open and it pivots out of the way to let the door pass. It can be mounted on the top slide so there is no more bending down to put the stop in place and no more stepping on the doorstop. An end stop is held on the slide with screws and can be removed.
