precision in motion

Nova’s all-fiberglass sliding door, constructed with fiberglass frames, sashes, interlocks, astragals, glazing stops, and exterior trim, offers unmatched durability and energy efficiency. Available with 1″ double pane and 1 3/8″ triple pane insulated LoE glass, each operable panel glides smoothly on an anodized extruded aluminum track with precision-bearing 2 1/4″ diameter rollers. This design ensures effortless operation while maintaining an excellent weather seal with positive compression on all four sides to reduce air and water infiltration. Standard multipoint locks enhance security, and the extruded aluminum top-hung screen with magnetic latching ensures smooth operation that remains unaffected by dirt and debris.

FINISHES

We offer our doors in ten standard paint color options, exclusively painted with TruCoat. TruCoat provides a smooth surface finish, high surface hardness, excellent adhesion, and fade resistance, making it the ideal coating for fiberglass exterior building products. Because all our door components are made from the same material—fiberglass—this eliminates tonal color variances caused by dissimilar materials, ensuring a perfect color match between the frame, trim, and door slab. Moreover, TruCoat is an environmentally friendly, low-VOC, water-based coating that outperforms the solvent-based coatings currently available in the marketplace.

Below is a list of our standard color options.  Two tone finishes, custom colors and metallic finishes are available for an additional charge.

Insulated Glass

Our sliding doors are available with either 1″ double pane or 1-3/8″ triple pane insulated glass. Options include Cardinal’s LoE-180 for passive solar homes, triple pane for maximum R-value, 1/4″ tempered for enhanced security, and laminated glass for noise reduction and improved Sound Transmission Class (STC).

LoE Options

Cardinal LoE-180 delivers excellent cold weather performance with an impressive insulation value (U-factor) of just 0.26. Its high solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.69 allows the winter sun’s warmth to pass into your home while blocking 71 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays and letting in natural daylight.

Experience the year-round benefits of LoE-366. This advanced coating is designed to reject solar heat while maintaining clear, attractive visibility. LoE-366 keeps the heat out during summer and allows light to enter, making it our top-performing glass for clarity and energy efficiency among Cardinal’s clear-coated products.

Enhance your Nova door’s performance with an additional LoE coating on the interior surface of the glazing. The i89 LoE hard-coat boosts full-frame energy performance by an average of 0.03 U, although there may be a slight reduction in condensation resistance. This extra layer ensures superior energy efficiency for your doors.

Laminated Glass

PVB laminated glass offers enhanced safety and superior sound reduction for your Nova doors. When laminated glass breaks, the PVB interlayer holds the glass fragments in place, preventing them from falling out. This creates a robust barrier against forced entry, as it cannot be easily cut from one side, rendering glass cutters ineffective. Additionally, laminated glass significantly reduces unwanted outside noise through its multi-layered structure, which effectively dampens sound waves.
