Many of our most common colors have been pre-matched – please ask for our current list of pre-matched colors. Non pre-matched colors can take up to 15 business days to process. Please provide your color samples for matching purposes as early in the process as possible to avoid delays.
The Beefy Bi-fold is a versatile system that requires a quick training to ensure smooth operation.
Yes, flush stacking panels are possible in certain configurations. Other designs, panel sizes, and handle options will require larger offsets. Weilands definition of “flush” is the minimum offset distance required to decelerate the door during normal use.
Weiland can match any color to our standard 2 coat Kynar matte finish. Powder coat, mica, metallic, textured, 3 coat, semi gloss, exotic colors and reds are available for an up charge.
Yes, Weiland’s large doors and windows are typically focused on one of your most important assets, a beautiful view. And while other door and window openings in the home may include divided lites, most Weiland customers chose to omit them from their larger openings to avoid distracting from the view.
However, we do offer divided lites and there are some important considerations when ordering your glass with internal shadow bars. Because insulated glass panels expand and contract with changes in pressure and temperature, shadow bars are slightly smaller than the glass spacer to minimize potential for these dividers to contact the glass surfaces. Glass manufacturers do not consider the possible “rattling” a defect covered by warranty.
Some glass make-ups can be ordered with soft urethane plastic bumpers to improve separation between the bars and the glass and may help minimize rattling. These glass options can be discussed with our sales department to be certain the glass ordered for your project has bumpers available. If glass is tempered or heat strengthened, deflection, or glass bowing may occur, such bowing, may be significant and is not considered a defect. Use of internal shadow bars may magnify the appearance of any deflection.
Yes, Windows constructed with tempered glass may have a permanent bow due to the tempering process. Bowing of the glass from tempering can be significant, with as much as a 1/16th of an inch per foot of glass. The bowing will remain regardless of whether the unit has pressure equalized.
There is no current solution for this problem and the homeowner should be aware that the windows with internal bars (shadow, muntin) and tempered glass could have an objectionable gap, which is not considered a defect, between the bars and glass.
Any available wood species. Our standard woods are mahogany and Doug fir. We build with cherry, alder, incense cedar, walnut and other exotic hardwoods.
Yes. Screens are available for the lift slide door systems, in wood or aluminum. Radius screen doors have additional bars to keep the screen in place.
The option of using a removable handle is usually considered when buying a pocketing door system. Using removable handles will allow a narrower sized pocket. If all the panels have removable handles and there are no other obstructions, the pocketing door system can be opened into a flush position when pushed into the pocket.
This measurement will vary depending on how many panels are in the system. Let our sales personnel know the door configuration and number of panels and they can calculate the pocket width for you.
Yes, most people prefer this option due to the larger pocket size required to accommodate the permanent handles.
During the quoting process Weiland will attempt to give the best estimate possible for shipping charges. If during delivery coordination it is determined that the jobsite has “special” circumstances, for example, low hanging trees, steep slopes or driveways, or sharp corners, there may be additional charges incurred to accommodate special truck requirements or long wait times unloading delivery vehicles.
Tracks, panels, jambs, hardware, door handles, and touch up paint.
Installation screws, shims, shim wood, stain/paint for wood, removable pocket trim, casing, drain pan.
The transverse drain is a feature of our flush track for the liftslide door systems. It is positioned at a 90’ angle between the parallel tracks. A drainage tube is connected to each drain so that it can be routed through the concrete slab to the outside of the building.
This measurement will vary depending on how many panels are in the system. Our sales personnel can calculate this width for you.
The primary jamb will be 3 -9/16” and can increase in width depending upon the number of panels and configuration.
This measurement will vary based on the number of panels included in your unit and also determined by the configuration of the panels.
Yes, whenever the door system has more than two panels the head track is staggered.
Yes, they mirror the staggered head track.
Rotate the handle up over the glass to a locked position. This sits the door down onto the floor and secures the door panel to the jamb with the multi-point locking system. Door must be in locked position to be water resistant.
The handles unlock and release the door. Grasp and hold the panel itself in order to slide the door.
While the dimensions of each stile and rail are static and a part of each door product design, please discuss any specific design ideas with our sales personnel.
Every Weiland door system is custom designed, built and tested for each customer. The almost infinite number of sizes and configurations makes certain testing prohibitive. Please contact your sales representative for more specific information.
