The E4500 series storefront system provides customers with the same quality standards found in our door products. This center glazed system is recommended for low rise applications and is commonly used with secured vestibules.
This storefront system utilizes Cross Aluminums’ heavy duty doorstop allowing parallel arm closers to be mounted with no worries of it pulling out of the frame header. Furthermore, this frame will only use closed backed tubes at every door opening, enhancing the structural strength and longevity of the whole entrance system. All immediate door frames have an internal wall to provide rigidity as they are anchored to the building, allowing the entrance to stay uniform and plumb.
Cross Aluminum will only supply closed-back extrusions at every door opening. This allows for the frame to be securely anchored to the building without product deformation. Industry standard open backs could deform and not allow snap-in door stop to engage or the door to sag when using side lites.
Our heavy duty door stop was introduced as a means to deal with a couple common problems after doors are installed. The taller height allows for a better seal around the door opening perimeter. Furthermore, the thicker wall provides the strength required for closer parallel arm brackets and rim strikes to be mounted worry-free for years after installation.
Cross Aluminum has always distinctively designed glazing to enhance the structural strength of the door. Every glazed entrance at Cross Aluminum will come with a secure non-removeable exterior glass stop. Glazing kits are unacceptable and compromise the strength and security of any entrance, that is why our glazing is incorporated as part of the structure of the door. Furthermore, all glazing parts will match the finish of the door, unless specified otherwise.
