The term “liftslide door” is a direct translation of the German term “Hebeschiebe Tür”. The word “hebe” means “lift” and the word “schiebe” means “slide”. Hebeschiebe can be used to describe doors and windows that lift onto rollers when sliding.
Other door and window manufactures use terms such as “lift and slide”, and “lift/slide”, but we feel that “liftslide” is the most true to the original. Weiland has been around since 1984. Our sliding doors are based on European technology, and we want to acknowledge our heritage.
