Crystal Window and Door Systems Launches Improved Aluminum Terrace Door


Terrace door

Crystal Window & Door Systems announced its improved Aluminum Series 1450 Out-Swing and Series 1460 In-Swing Terrace Doors that are now available. This product line has been reengineered and redesigned for elevated structural and thermal performance, with new features, options, and enhanced ADA compliance.

What's new?

Crystal’s Series 1450/1460 Terrace Door is constructed to be well-suited for high-rise and wind-prone installations. Its thermal performance far surpasses New York City’s latest energy code specifications, one of the most stringent state or municipal energy codes in the country. The Series 1450/1460 door offers glazing of either 1” or 1-¼” dual- or triple-pane tempered insulated glass units, with low-E coatings and gas-filling options for further energy efficiency and sound attenuation.

The company upgraded all the hardware selections for the Series 1450/1460 to give the terrace door a sleeker look with easier operation. The multi-point locking door features a new no-backplate door handle option which matches handles on Crystal’s high-end casement window products for continuity of appearance, and a separate cylinder keylock can be placed above or below this door handle. Slim heavy-duty barrel hinges should provide years of perfectly aligned operation.

An adjustable hydraulic closer from leading German hardware manufacturer Gretsch-Unitas features a concealed mounting plate and slide arm assembly designed for outswing door operation, which allows effortless operation of the door while maintaining the door’s sleek look on the interior. A bottom stile 10” kick plate is also available for the ADA compliant Series 1450D door.

The aluminum frame of Crystal’s Series 1450/1460 Aluminum Swing Terrace Door is finished in durable environmentally sustainable powder coat paint, to either AAMA 2604 or 2605 performance standards.  Architects and property owners can choose from a broad palette of standard and stock colors, two-tone frame colors, and any custom color desired.
