Plaza Doors were designed for ease of operation, optimum security, and maximum durability. The ease of operation is a result of our silent heavy duty roller assemblies and heavy extruded frame sections. The stainless steel Adams Rite Hook-bolt deadlock with full height adjustment offers trouble-free operation and security. Durability is ensured by using the finest grade of aluminum as well as non-corrosive finished materials in our production. We chose a narrow profile for our frames to allow for the least obstructed views.
We are a custom manufacturer, not limited to a set number of configurations or product sizes. Noted for innovation we build to your required specifications. Whatever is needed for a successful retrofit of an existing building requiring an upgrade of its sliding doors, we do everything possible to make sure the door is correct.
One of the most important components of a sliding glass door is the roller assembly. This assembly, designed by Plazadoor Corp., is made of 6061-T6 structural grade aluminum alloy with stainless steel axle pins, sealed ball bearings, and adjusting screw. The large diameter wheel is molded of high density Derlin compound for durability. Derlin is a naturally lubricating material and does not wear away the heavy anodized finish applied to the track. The stainless steel bearing is protected from dust and dirt with Teflon dust shields. It all adds up to a very quiet, easy-rolling, corrosion resistant door.
Single Roller Assembly
The single roller assembly is part of the standard quality package furnished on our Sentry, Atlas, and screen door panels. The large diameter roller tire makes these units roll quietly and with little effort.
Tandem Roller Assembly
The tandem roller assembly is included as standard hardware on our Titan Series sliding door units. They can be retrofitted to any existing Plaza Sliding Glass Door regardless of the series. The use of two wheels per roller means the mechanical advantage of the large tires has been doubled to provide the easiest, smoothest, and quietest rolling Titan door panels, regardless of their size.
Built-in "Weep" Drainage System
Water drainage is important in areas where constant rain is a part of everyday life. To keep rain water from findings its way inside, Plaza Door uses a series of watertight discharge pans hidden underneath the track. The force of the water rolling off of the doors pushes the water into corresponding "weep" holes that allow water to find its way off of the track and away from the door sill. Our special "Titan Hi Rise" surface draining track may be utilized for optimum performance during extreme weather and high wind conditions.
Four Point Weather Sealing
Double Pile & Bulb Vinyl
The Pile or "fuzz" weather stripping plays the critical role of keeping insects from finding their way inside. The bulb vinyl weather stripping is important because it blocks wind and rain water from entering the interior. Plaza Door integrates this industry standard of weather sealing twice at every jamb, door astragal, and interlock meeting condition. Having this feature helps eliminate the " whistling" or "howling" many sliding glass doors produce during extreme windy conditions.

One of the features of the Plaza Sliding Door System that separates our sliding door units from other manufacturers is our sliding screen panel. When design features of the Plaza Sliding System were being established, it was determined that the screen panel for a sliding door unit was equally important as any other part of the unit. To satisfy that decision, the Plaza screen panel has been designed with the same care as the door panel and frame components... with the same profile, including extrusion wall thickness equal to the door sections. This design assures the screen door is as sturdy and reliable as the door panel. In addition to the heavy duty extrusion used in the screen panel, the same roller and lock used on the glass door panel. Plaza screens are known for their ease of operation and durability, whether they are 3' wide x 6'8" high or 5' wide x 10" high. Screen cloth choices are also available.
