4700-Series Tilt & Glide Doors

FEATURES

Tilt & glide doors provide the perfect solution in spaces where swing doors do not work due to space restrictions.

While only half of the tilt & glide door system opens, these doors can be made wider than hinged doors, providing a large opening. The fixed side can be a picture window – providing a large glass surface allowing lots of sun to come in – or a fixed sash to match the opening side. Tilt & glide doors also provide secure ventilation.

Choose from a wide variety of colours, EuroWood styles, handle types, and couple these with extended energy saving features such as LoE-coated glass, to customize one of the best window series the world has to offer.

 

  • Multi-point locking hardware all around for
    • Easy-to-operate handle moves the multi-point locking hardware into place for high security, and compressing gaskets for a tight seal
  • Triple seal gasket
  • In the “glide” position, the operable sash slides over the sidelite
  • In the “tilt” position, the sash tilts inwards at the top, providing draft-free, secure ventilation
  • Ideal for lower-traffic areas, such as bedrooms with access to a balcony or deck

PROFILE

4700-components-vinyl-peelback

  • Made from REHAU’s innovative vinyl-fibreglass material RAU-FIPRO®.
    • This combination of uPVC and fibreglass provides the benefit of both materials:
      Like vinyl, its surface is smooth and pore-free, preventing the growth of mould and mildew. It can be extruded in a multi-chamber design with the corners fusion-welded to guarantee a permanent and leak-free connection.
      Its hybrid core provides the high stability, torsion stiffness, and static properties of fibreglass. What’s more, it is low maintenance, easy to clean, and has a low thermal expansion ratio.
  • Outstanding light and weather resistance as well as colour durability
    • After 10,000 hours of exposure in the Weather-Ometer, no change in colour is discernible, the notch impact strength is scarcely altered, and there is no visible change in surface gloss.
  • High-impact resistant
    • Essential during transportation and installation when window frames are subjected to bending and exposure to low external temperatures in winter. Under these conditions, cracking is much less likely with uPVC than with regular PVC.
  • No plasticizers or lead
    • 100% recyclable (where facilities exist)
    • Won’t make your family sick
  • Fusion-welded corners
    • Corners are fusion welded for strength and to prevent air and water infiltration, as can happen with windows that are connected mechanically (e.g. fibreglass or aluminum windows).

4700-components-6-chamber

  • 6-chamber design
    • Each chamber acts as a thermal break, providing insulation and high thermal performance.
  • Thicker walls
    • Give the doors more strength overall, and specifically in the corners, where more material means a better, stronger weld.
  • Smooth surface for easy cleaning
  • Extruded profiles are available in white only

SILL

4700-series tilt & glide doors are available with standard sills:

  • Regular frame profile at the sill of the door
  • Triple seal gasket all around
  • Together with the multi-point locking hardware, this results in a tight seal even at the sill

REINFORCEMENT

While the fibreglass in the 4700-series provides strength and rigidity, ThermoPlus doors are partially reinforced with roll-formed galvanized steel that is fastened to the profile.

SEALS

4700-components-sealTriple seal system, including two compression gaskets

HARDWARE

  • Multi-point locking hardware by ROTO FRANK
    • Number of locking points increases with door size
    • Seals out harsh weather
    • Makes it virtually impossible for intruders to break into your home through the frame
  • RotoSill Nano coating
    • Offers the highest available surface protection. Through galvanizing, chromating, and additional sealing, the hardware becomes extremely scratch and corrosion resistant. If the surface is lightly scratched, the coating “heals” itself, continuing to provide protection against corrosion.
  • Single-handle operation
    • All locking points are simultaneously operated simply by the turn of a single handle
    • Makes the door easy to operate even for children and people with limited mobility.

LOCKS

STANDARD HANDLE-OPERATED LOCK (NO CYLINDER)

  • Locked from the inside by turning the handles to engage the multi-point locking hardware (just like windows)
  • Exterior has a static pull tab (active side only on French doors)
    • Can be used to move the sash, but cannot operate the hardware
    • The door can only be locked and unlocked from the interior
  • Typical application:
    • This application works best for most tilt & glide applications

HALF CYLINDER

  • Thumbturn on the interior to lock the door
  • Exterior handle allows the door to be closed (not locked) from the exterior
    • A low profile handle is recommended to clear the centre mullion. Use of a standard handle will result in the handle hitting the mullion, preventing full opening of the door, and eventual damage to the hardware.
  • Typical application:
    • Not a typical configuration

FULL KEYLOCK

  • Thumbturn on the interior to lock the door
  • Exterior handle allows the door to be closed (not locked) from the exterior
    • A low profile handle is recommended to clear the centre mullion. Use of a standard handle will result in the handle hitting the mullion, preventing full opening of the door, and eventual damage to the hardware.
  • Exterior keylock allows the door to be (un)locked from the exterior
  • Typical application:
    • Not a typical configuration

GLAZING

4700-components-glazing_bead

  • Comes standard with:
    • 24mm dual-pane tempered insulated glass unit (IGU)
    • One coating of LoE 270
    • Argon gas fill
    • Warm edge SuperSpacer®
  • Available with 44mm triple pane IGU

 

  • Tempering the glass strengthens it and makes it safer in case of accident, as it shatters into small, dull pieces rather than sharp glass shards.
  • The LoE soft coating improves energy efficiency by reflecting radiant heat from the sun back out in the summer, keeping the interior of the house cool, and reflecting radiant heat from heating back inside in the winter, resulting in less heating being needed. In addition, the LoE coating also reduces UV transmittance, which helps save your furniture from fading.
  • Because argon gas is heavier than air, it is a better insulator. Using argon gas between the glass panes results in less heat transfer, which means less moisture and ice buildup on the glass.
  • 4700-components-spacerThe spacer that is used in the IGU also plays a very important role in how it performs. Metal spacers not only transfer much more heat, they also are more likely to fail, allowing the argon gas to escape, moisture to enter, and mold to grow. This is the reason why all EuroLine windows have a Super Spacer – a warm edge technology spacer that significantly improves glass performance. After a 5-year high-humidity test it was found that 99% of the argon was retained.

 

  • Since EuroLine does not use glazing tape and dry glazes all units, glass replacement is fast and easy if it ever becomes necessary.
  • In standard applications IGUs are glazed from the interior for security

Air Infiltration

Windows are rated with respect to the rate of air infiltration per unit length of the window opening against winds at 40 km/h (25 mi/h).

Water Resistance

Windows are rated with respect to the rate of water sprayed against the window surface at different pressure levels.

Wind Load

The window is subjected to several levels of pressure applied inwards and outwards. To satisfy a given level of performance, the window must simultaneously fulfill both performance criteria.

Glass type can affect the performance level against forced entry. Safety glass is recommended where security is a concern.

Handles shown are window handles; sliding door handles have the same design, but with longer handles for a better grip.
