New Performance Sill option for Ultimate Lift and Slide Door


Marvin’s Industry-Leading Door Offers More Flexibility Across a Wide Range of Applications

Warroad, Minn. – The industry-leading Ultimate Lift and Slide Door from Marvin Windows and Doors now offers a Performance Sill option that greatly expands the range of applications for this high-end door.

Unlike a traditional recessed sill, which must be embedded in concrete, the Performance Sill option can be installed using a wood subfloor. This new option makes the Ultimate Lift and Slide more adaptable to a range of applications, such as second-floor installations.

“We’re pleased to offer this new option to builders, remodelers, architects and homeowners,” said Christine Marvin, director of marketing for Marvin Windows and Doors. “It will make this outstanding door all even more versatile.”

Features and benefits of the Performance Sill option include:

Mostly constructed of extruded aluminum

  • Delivers the structural stability required for large door systems
  • Unlike other sills of this type, this sill incorporates thermal breaks — both transverse and longitudinal — to assure thermal performance in even cold climates

Offers greater flexibility of use in diverse applications

  • Interior floor surfaces can come flush to the top of the sill: When used with more traditional sliding door applications, the finished floor surface can fall anywhere along the interior of the sill
  • A superior sill for wood construction since concrete fill is not required
  • Works great with second floor applications
  • More friendly transition from interior spaces to exterior decks
  • Sill finished in either clear anodized or bronze anodized with stainless steel roller
  • tracks

Unlike recessed sills, the Performance Sill offers adjustability throughout the life of the door

Can achieve a DP rating of 30 in select clad configurations and sizes
