Specifications

Door Size 36 inches by 80/81 inches

Toe-Kick Plate Optional.  If selected, finish must match door handle finish.
Ventilation Several options are available depending on the brand selected:

1) Interchangeable full length glass & insect screen panels.

2) “Self Storing” doors that combine sliding glass panels that move up or down in combination with an insect screen.

3) “Self Storing” doors that combine fixed glass panels with a screen in the top half of the door that rolls up into the door frame.  (Good option for Co-owners with pets)

Quality of Construction 1-1/2 inch minimum frame thickness
Installation Co-owner may select any vendor that is already on the Board approved vendor list (contact Management Company for approved list), or another vendor who meets the same insurance and licensing requirements as established by the Board. The Co-owner may also install the door themselves.  First time installations may need framing strips added to the door frame.

Approved Models

The following Brands/Model lines meet the above specifications as of May 2106.  Note that retailers such as Home Depot, Lowes, and Menards may relabel the model lines within the Anderson and Larson brands.  Please check to make sure that the above specifications are met.

  • Anderson 4000 Series: Top of the line – Full View with an easy quick change full length glass and insect screen panels.  Low-E, Dual Pane, & Laminated Safety Glass available.  Sandtone is the required color.
  • Anderson 3000 Series: Optional roll up screen for top half of door, movable glass panels over insect fixed screen, or interchangeable glass & insect screen panel.  Note that the interchangeable glass & screen model is a very difficult change out – the plastic spine to hold the glass or screen in place needs excessive force to snap in place.  Sandtone is the required color.
  • Larson: Different retailers rename the model lines.  Check to see if all specifications are met. “Sandstone” is the required color.
