Series 3070 Exterior Rated Multi-slide & Pocket Door System
Designed For Lifetime Performance
Track Finish Protection: Our door threshold design is unique in many aspects, one of which is its built in protection against damage. Notice that the stainless steel track insert sits a little higher than the aluminum sill, protecting the finish from damage caused by foot traffic and daily wear and tear. Other door manufacturers provide a different color sill to mask such damage but Fleetwood’s beauty extends all the way to the floor.
Archetype Rollers! Fleetwood maintains the industry reputation as having the best rolling doors. To keep that prominence we have designed the Archetype Rolling System. It is a stainless steel tandem roller comprised of two 3" diameter wheels with authentic precision bearings produced by our partner in Switzerland. It is so good our competitors turned from scoffers to imitators.
Tighter Interlockers: Notice how the interlockers on all Fleetwood doors "wedge" into each other? This makes a rattle free union. Cheaper models rely solely on the brush weather-stripping. This causes more noise and air infiltration because the brush wears out.
Unique Track Design: If you will take the time to study the roller track you will see a unique design. Our track is a solid aluminum base that receives a heavy gauge stainless steel insert. Cheaper designs offer an aluminum runner and a metal cap. Our track will last longer, can handle more weight and is easily replaced.
Garage Door Strength: Several customers have used the 3070 as a garage door. Imagine the possibilities of multiple panels coming out of a pocket.
Air Leakage: Wood and vinyl swell and shrink as the weather changes. And like an old house they can creak and groan. DO NOT be fooled by those windows and doors that tout "U-value = energy efficiency." To understand the U-value test is to know it is a misleading rating. Were you aware that during the test all weep holes, seams, etc are sealed shut? No wonder wood and vinyl perform so well in this "test" because only material is tested and not the product. Real conditions cause expansion and contraction, which allows energy to come right through the frame. Aluminum has infinitesimal movement during weather change, which causes it to be efficient year in, and year out.
