60' Marvin Pocket Doors


i was perusing the latest Marvin book in the library today and saw this

http://www.marvin.com/patio-doors/lift-and-slide-doors/

they can either stack or slide in to a pocket

they also offer bifold patio doors similar to Nana wall [Andersen has one too now]

Re: 60' Marvin Pocket Doors


Pretty slick, huh? We got to play around with a set when we were up at the Marvin plant a few months ago. They can only be sold installed. That is, Marvin sells the door & a certified installer of the Lift and Slide doors does the installation - no selling the doors to anyone wanting to do the install themselves. We're hoping to send our lead guy back to MN to get certified on them later this year.

Re: 60' Marvin Pocket Doors


no pics ,was before i started taking them

i think it was around 14-15' something like that

the real challenge was the screen system and building the nesessary support platform and head detailand the instructions being in German didn't help

i was there for a few days...

No threshhold? What keeps the water from coming under?

Recessed bottom track? What keeps the dirt from plugging that up? The servants?

It's a water return threshold.

The track & hardware is all pretty rugged. It would take quite a bit of dirt to affect it.

I believe servants are optional.

The doors come in various sizes. They can be combined to create up to a 60' wide opening.

Re: 60' Marvin Pocket Doors


Those look nice, but I can't understand why Marvin cost so much more than Milgard.
