Vinyl doors are hot. Research reports from Freedonia, Data Bridge Market Research, and Window and Doors Industry Trends predict increasing demand for the next several years, as homeowners look for sophisticated options that reflect their desire for indoor-outdoor living at an affordable price point.
“Many builders are looking for ways to differentiate their homes from those of other builders at similar price points,” says Chet Willis, Western Window Systems’ vice president of production builder sales. “Our Series 3700 Vinyl Multi-Slide Door is a great way to get the consumer’s attention at a price point that makes sense for the builder and the consumer.
Here are 10 benefits of the Western Window Systems Series 3700 Vinyl Multi-Slide Door:
- Glides Over (Almost) Any Surface
A “floating” sill track insert gives the Series 3700 Vinyl Multi-Slide Door superior rolling performance, making it highly adaptable to a variety of flooring substrate conditions.
- No Additional Framing Necessary
Designed to fit into most 2x4 and 2x6 openings, the three-panel configuration of the Series 3700 requires no additional framing.
- Easier, More Economical Installation
Two nail fin set-back options, built into the profile as a standard offering, help make installation easier and faster.
- Snap-In Interlock
Because the interlock is applied after the panel is installed, it can be cut so there are no gaps where unwanted air and light can get in.
- Color-Matched Hardware
For a consistent look, we match the hardware color of the Series 3700 Vinyl Multi-Slide Door to the frame. For our black capstock option, black hardware is used.
- Integrated Weep System
Designed for effectiveness in a variety of climates, an integrated weep system safeguards against water intrusion, eliminating the need for a hard sill pan in most applications. Sill height is 1.5”. Standard aluminum sill covers enhance durability.
- Climate-Ready Glass
For better energy performance, our multi-slide doors feature low-E dual-pane, argon-filled glass from Cardinal IG. Pre-applied Cardinal Preserve film protects glass during installation.

The Series 3700 is designed to meet prescriptive energy codes in a variety of climates and features Energy Star-qualified options.
