Parallel Tilt-Slide Doors
European Parallel Tilt Slide Doors are custom built at Reineke Sash and Door. The Parallel Tilt Slide door units are becoming more popular due to its unique hardware design and function. Unlike the more popular lift & slide system the parallel tilt slide design allows for an additional tilt function for ventilation.
The precisely designed hardware allows the system to function as a combination door and window unit. With a 90 degree turn of the handle the hardware enables the sash to tilt back for ventilation similar to that of the tilt-turn window. An additional 90 degree turn of the handle allows the sash to slide horizontally giving pass-thru access.
