Lift & Slide Door Systems
Designed for the luxury market, the Panda Lift & Slide door has been engineered to be the pinnacle of sliding door technology. This specially engineered multi-slide door system incorporates a European inspired design and hardware set.
Operation of this type of sliding door system and the track options define the overall description. With the use of a large leverage handle, the operator engages a double v-gasket seal at the top and bottom of the door by turning the handle to lock the door.
The panels use their own weight to compress the seals thus creating a completely weather-tight wall system when in the “down” position. When in the “up” position, the panels which weigh 200 pounds or more are easily moved with just a few pounds of pressure.
Panda’s Lift & Slide product line includes:
All Aluminum (S.10)

Panda’s Folding Door product line includes:
All Aluminum (S.51)
Configured from two to countless panel groups, Bi-Folding door Systems use an extruded aluminum track to fold smoothly to one side, stylishly and effortlessly connecting your space to the outdoors or acting as an interior space divider.
All Aluminum ULTRA (US.51)
Engineered to suit a wide range of commercial and industrial applications where high strength and maximum access is desired such as hotel complexes, resorts, restaurants & lounges, commercial centers, and educational institutions.
The precision hardware utilized in the Panda ULTRA models is top in the industry and is designed to withstand the weight of large panels. The stainless steel carrier hinges are rated up to 450 lbs. per panel. The sealed bearing rollers allow for effortless operation even on the largest sizes.
Thermally Broken (TS.60)
Panda offers state-of-the-art thermally broken Bi-Fold Door Systems for large openings in more extreme climates. These systems are extremely durable and save energy with their superior energy efficiency. The thermal break technology used consists in separating the aluminum profile to reduce thermal conductivity. This is achieved by using a polyamide iso-bar, with glass fibers integrated to provide maximum strength.
Thermally Broken ULTRA (UTS.60)
Featuring a thermal break technology on frame and panels, this system uses cutting-edge aluminum extrusions with a polyamide bar to connect the frame together while reducing heat or cold transfer. This protective barrier lowers u-factors, limits condensation, increases energy performance, and reduces thermal conductivity.
Aluminum/Wood Clad (S.72)
With this unique door system, you get the reduced maintenance of an aluminum clad finish, plus the aesthetic appeal and warmth of wood in a modern application. The aluminum is bent and folded over the exterior of the door to prevent weather from penetrating into the wood frame.
Aluminum/Wood Clad GRAND (S.74)
On top of the reduced maintenance of aluminum clad finish, plus the aesthetic appeal and warmth of wood, this system provides superior capacity than its sister the S.72, which makes it an ideal choice for heavy duty applications.
Solid Wood (S.66)
Panda offers luxurious wood Folding Door Systems in custom sizes up to 12 feet in height. Specially designed engineered wood cores are used for the profile to provide long lasting strength and superb durability while providing an elegant feel.
Multi-Slide Door Systems
A cost-effective alternative to Lift & Slides, Multi-Slide Door Systems operate almost effortlessly on specially designed stainless steel rollers. The number of panels used varies based on the configuration and number of vertical sight-lines desired.
The panels may all stack on one end behind each other to create a total opening of all but one panel’s width as a viewing obstruction. To eliminate the viewing obstruction completely, the panels may all be pocketed to one or both sides of the opening. Stacking systems may also bi-part and stack on both sides.
Panda’s Multi-Slide product line includes:
All Aluminum (S.81)
This system has larger 2" stainless steel wheels, larger profiles and a heavy duty multi-point locking system which allows for larger panel sizes.
All Aluminum Slim Profile (S.90/9000)
The 9000 Series operates as a traditional slider. These large, mobile window-walls maximize the view without sacrificing style and function. The frame width is the smallest of our product line allowing for more glass and light.
Thermally Broken (TS.83)
This system is the perfect solution for an overall eco-friendly building envelope. It provides superior thermal performance for a wide array of projects that require a large opening slider. With multiple features in design, including specially designed gaskets and iso-bar technology this system can achieve a U-value of 0.29.
Platinum with aluminum/wood clad (S.65)
What makes the Platinum Series unique is its ability to have either aluminum or wood interior cladding. This allows the door to be a 2 tone, all-aluminum system for a contemporary look or a wood interior for a more traditional feel. This unique feature also allows the end-user to replace the cladding later on.
Operable Wall Systems
Operable wall systems are multiple panel door systems which all operate along a single recessed channel track system. The tracking system used with this line allows many panels to span a large opening without having to stack the tracks which can create a large jamb width requirement.
Configurations include independent-panels which all stack together when the system is open. They may also be connected similar to a bi-fold system, however, the hanging wheel sets are then in the center of the panels to more evenly distribute their weight.
Operable Wall Systems are a multiple-panel single track system used for large openings. Limitless configurations are available in a variety of frame options. The systems are top-hung for ease of operation.
All Aluminum (S.96)
Designed to truly create an "operable wall" this system is available in very large sizes to span oversized openings, while panel storage in the open position is very minimal. Profiles are manufactured from extruded aluminum with a wall thickness of up to 1/8" allowing for massive panels.
Thermally Broken (TS.94)
This model has been designed and engineered to provide the highest level of quality and thermal performance. The system is thermally broken with a wide polyamide plastic reinforced with glass fibers. This thermal barrier provides increased strength, better acoustics, superior humidity, control and energy savings.
Aluminum/Wood Clad (S.93)
Wood cladding provides a traditional warm look to the interior area. Aluminum offers a contemporary sleek style with minimal site lines. The combination of the two makes for a one-of-a-kind operable wall system.
Solid Wood (S.95)
Standard wood choices generally include mahogany, pine, and some hardwoods but many other wood choices are available, including bamboo laminates and exotic species. With this system, you can optimize the sound insulation ratings, giving you the tools to turn down the volume in virtually any space you desire.
These glass enclosures create divisions that are functional and also provide a minimalistic feel of expansive, open space. They are deal for expanding living space for balconies, outdoor rooms, patios and exhibiting areas.
