The same quality and structural integrity that is engineered into our flush door line, is carried over into our stile & rail glass door (storefront entrances). The vertical stiles of the MS-400 series are tubular extrusions that are 4 inches wide. This allows for usage of most commercial hardware. There are a wide variety of glass configurations that can be created, from full view glass to various horizontal and vertical mullion assemblies. These custom variables allow for the creation of many unique entrance designs. Entrances that are required to meet the American Disabilities Act (ADA) are easily fabricated. The base and top horizontal rails of the doors can vary from 4-1/2" to any desired height. Other structural points of emphasis are:
  • Door sections are 1-3/4" x 4-1/2" tubular shapes of extruded aluminum 6063-T5 alloy.
  • True Mortise and Tenon Joinery at every Stile and Rail Intersection.
  • Joinery is 3/8" diameter zinc plated steel tie rods bolted through the stiles. Where applicable, a minimum of three rods will be installed in each door.
  • Wall thickness of the extrusion stile face is .125" nominal. While the end wall thickness at the hinge and lock stiles are .187".
  • Meeting stile of all pair of doors have wool pile weather stripping w/ fin strip.
  • Glass glazing stops are extruded channels with minimum wall thickness of .125" and are removable only from the inside.
  • All exterior glazing is part of the door extrusions and non-removable.
  • The glazing stops will always match the finish of the door.
  • The doors accept glass from 1/4" up to 1-1/4" thickness.
  • Accept hardware of any type and manufacturer as required.
  • Available in a variety of anodized and painted colors.
Cross Aluminum's MS-400 series doors are fabricated with a true mortise and tenon joinery. The rails are composed of a spline composition which encompasses the entire Tie-Rod through the full width of the horizontal rail. This construction process provides maximum strength without the use of a welded joint. Utilizing this method allows the owner the option to replace any piece of the door that may be damaged by abuse or accident. This can be done by disassembling the door and purchasing a replacement part, rather than having to spend hundreds of dollars to purchase a completely new door.
