Client News: Tubelite debuts TerraPorte 7600 terrace doors
Posted on May 4th, 2017 by Heather West
Ideal for mid-rise residential projects, condominiums and hotels, Tubelite Inc. introduces TerraPorte 7600 terrace doors. Sizes extend up to 12-feet-tall and easily integrate with Tubelite’s curtainwall, ribbon window or storefront systems, or used as a standalone door.
The 3-1/4-inch aluminum-framed TerraPorte 7600 terrace doors achieve AW-70 Architectural Performance Class requirements set by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA). Testing for AW-70 includes stringent criteria for air, water and structural performance, including AAMA 910-16 lifecycle testing to 4,000 operating cycles, with supplemental thermal cycling.
Ensuring safety requirements are met, TerraPorte doors feature multi-lock hardware. Low-profile accessABLE™ sills may be specified to achieve universal design goals. The doors’ heavy-duty aluminum hinges, along with corner key and crimped construction, provide increased durability for frequent use.
Durable anodize or painted finishes also reduce buildings’ maintenance costs and enhance long lifecycles. Paint options include a large palette of colors plus a two-color, split finish option.
