Freeburg, Mo.–– Quaker has added two new high performance architecturally rated Terrace Doors to its M-Series of products to satisfy the industry demand for superior quality . The M-Series Out-swing (AW70) and M-Series In-swing (AW50) Terrace Doors feature a 4-1/2” Framing system, 1” insulating glass pocket, out-swing low profile sill, out-swing and in-swing French doors and sidelite options.
“Expanding our architectural aluminum door offering is part of our strategic growth plan for 2019”, says Quaker CEO Kevin Blansett. “We’ve completed construction of a new manufacturing facility this year, which has allowed us to expand and invest into new automation for our M-Series architectural door systems”, Blansett explains.
Quaker’s growth and expansion plans have included breaking ground for a new 200,000 square foot commercial and architectural products production facility in Eldon, MO in November 2018, the opening of a 185,000 square foot facility in January 2018 for high performing wood windows and doors, and the expansion of the M-Series Architectural Aluminum Door line into the former wood facility in 2018.
The M-Series Terrace Doors have been designed with very narrow sitelines to satisfy the design flexibility and natural daylighting desired by architects. Quaker architectural aluminum design utilizes Azon thermal break technology to maximize thermal performance and strength.
