Marvin. The maker’s sliding patio and sliding French doors now feature a low-profile sill. Just 3/4 inches off the base flooring, the low-profile sill provides an easy transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. Those looking for a clean aesthetic will appreciate the flush profile, while aging-in-place professionals will value the product’s ADA compliance. Constructed of pultruded fiberglass Ultrex material, the low-profile sill offers strength and durability of higher sills, and is certified as DP40 on most sliding doors. 888.537.8266. www.marvin.com.
