Euro Glide by Lifestyles™
          Premier Operating System

This innovative system truly reflects a desire to “glide through life” with a patio door that opens and closes with unprecedented ease.



The elegant appearance of the Premier Luxury Performance Door is undeniable. Yet its beauty runs even deeper. For within its precision crafted frame lies the exclusive EuroGlide operating system. This remarkable technology dramatically reduces the effort required to operate the door. In fact, it’s effortless.


The EuroGlide operating system literally lifts the door panel off the sill to allow the door to glide effortlessly with the push of one finger.

The EuroGlide operating system integrates two major innovations. The first is a handle engineered to literally lift the door panel off the sill when you rotate the handle. The second is a ball bearing roller system that enables a door weighing up to 550 lbs. to glide smoothly open and closed with just the push of a finger. A mere 8 lbs. of force is all it takes to operate, once in motion, compared to up to 20 lbs. for a standard sliding door.

The unique-looking handle of the Premier Luxury Performance Door befits the exceptional technology that is the EuroGlide operating system.

Rotating the handle 180° actually lifts the door off the sill, enabling it to glide effortlessly on its innovative stainless steel and cast aluminum ball bearing roller system with just 8 lbs. of force the push of one finger.

Plus its exclusive multi-point locking system delivers two to three times the amount of security of standard sliding doors. When the panel is closed, locking lugs engage four lock bolts strategically positioned along the door jamb for maximum security.
