The selection of sliding-type doors from Europe is generally limited to the relatively expensive PSK system and really expensive HST system. While both of these tried and trued systems are great and function flawlessly, there is a need for a simpler, more economical sliding door system for the North American market. With this goal, EuroClime has found a European system that is a slide-only design similar to that of the typical American slider, and with a Ud-value of around 0.250. For this slider system, the sliding rails are elevated off the ground to avoid dust and dirt accumulation, as well as having circular rollers instead of the rail and groove American standard that tends to bind with age. These doors are designed for Patio, Terrace, and Deck access.
