Slide Patio Doors

Each Timeline slide patio door, like our entire product line, is designed for design flexibility, superior performance and energy efficiency. Steel reinforcements within the stiles and in the frame at the latch point provide maximum strength and security. Combined with a pultruded fiberglass sill and high performance glass, the Timeline slide patio door system is very energy efficient.

And, Timeline's dual tandem ball-bearing rollers keep the door operating smoothly year-after-year. Add any glazing option, including the divided light configuration that suits your décor, for a beautiful view and a durable door - a winning combination for any application.

Standard Finishes

Our vinyl product is offered in three universal colors. The widespread usage of these shades is evidence of their popularity. Choose vinyl and your project is sure to stand the test of time.

Actual color may vary from the color seem on your computer. Please see your Timeline dealer for the latest available colors.

Painted Vinyl Finishes

Our in-house operation is an environmentally friendly water-based application process with ultra low VOC emmissions, excellent weathering properties, and high abrasion resistance all with superior hardness. Plus it's matte finish is easy to touch-up in the field should an unfortunate jobsite issue arise.

Low maintenance interiors with a painted exterior are the perfect solution for light commercial buildings, custom residential homes, and remodeling projects.

Choose from J-channel, 2” brickmould or 3-1/2” flat casing in all three Timeline colors - White, Sandstone and Adobe. These trim options are factory applied with no additional lead time and feature fusion welded top corners and a mechanically fastened sill nosing. The brickmould and flat casing incorporates a 1” J-channel pocket extruded into the trim for quick installation of any siding type and a nailing fin for better weather protection. Both trim options are also available for radius units.

Spread Mulls

Typical mulling is done with a tight unit to unit mull clip. Spread mulls add additional spacing between windows and patio doors. Popular rational for doing so would include: accommodating a special opening with standard size windows, to achieve a ‘heavier’ look and working around essential structural framing.

Spread mulls can be done both vertically and horizontally.

Additional Options

Because we ship to the continental US and therefore experience a lot of different regional concerns, Timeline offers special options that make using our products a lot easier. Please contact your local dealer for details.

  • Factory Set-up Frame – Slide door frames and stationary panels assembled in our plant yielding a quicker install. Doors are set up to operate per your specification.

Jamb Extensions

When installing a window, increasing the depth of the window frame to accommodate the wall thickness is sometimes necessary. This can easily be accomplished with the use of jamb extensions available in all six wood species.


Wood Species

Nothing enhances the look and feel of a room more than the richness and beauty of wood. Our standard pine interior is fine for most applications, but if you are looking to really enhance the character of your project, we offer five additional wood species.


Alder Cherry Fir Mahogany Oak Pine      


Natural Wood

Timeline will leave your interior wood surface sanded smooth, ready for stain and sealer.




If you plan to paint the interior of your windows and patio doors, you can have them primed with a white factory applied water-based acrylic latex primer.




To take things a step further, we also offer FirstFinish - a factory applied secondary coat of water-based acrylic latex primer. FirstFinish is intended to prep the unit for the final top-coat of paint to be applied.



White Vinyl

White vinyl wrapped jambs are also available. This pre-finished jamb option has a slightly textured appearance, is low maintenance and does not require painting.


The glass in windows and patio doors has the single largest effect on energy efficiency. Timeline’s standard insulated glass offering includes double strength glass combined with a warm edge spacer. For greater energy efficiency, argon is added to all Low-E glass units, at no cost to the customer, with the exception of those units requiring capillary/breather tubes. These units include, but are not limited to, glass 12” and less in width or height and units shipped over high elevations. Timeline does not guarantee that the initial argon fill rate will be maintained over the life of the product. Argon depletion may decrease energy efficiency. For more information, contact your local dealer or Timeline Vinyl Products, Inc.

Choose Timeline’s standard glass or a combination of energy efficient, low maintenance and specialty glass options for appearance, performance and comfort.

There are not only choices in the glass itself, there’s also variation in glazing. Here is another opportunity to have your windows and doors made to fit the interior design, décor and style of the room. Additionally, the exterior interacts with the overall architecture and creates fantastic curb appeal. Enhancing windows and doors with lite divisions definitely puts the icing on the cake. Although there are standard lite configurations designated for all products, custom designs are also welcome.

Simulated Divided Lites

Windows and doors may be enhanced with simulated divided lites. Both the interior and exterior bars are sealed to the glass with 3M adhesives and are available in all three vinyl colors.

Simulated divided lite products may be ordered with or without an internal aluminum gridwork; internal grille choices include mill finish and bronze. Simulated divided lites are available in a 7/8” bar width.

Internal Aluminum Grilles

Another unobstructive manner of lite division is the addition of an internal aluminum grille. Inserted at time of insulated glass fabrication, internal aluminum grilles are 11⁄16” double profile, 1" double profile (white only) and 5/8" flat profile.

Screens allow you to enjoy the fresh air while keeping insects and debris out of your home. Timeline offers a vatiety of screen mesh options including: Aluminum, Fiberglass, BetterVue® and UltraVue®.

Aluminum is the most widely used metal for screens and is a great option for homes with pets or kids. Metal screens are popular in regions where insects routinely chew holes in fiberglass mesh.

BetterVue® is our standard screen mesh. It has thinner strands and a tighter weave than traditional fiberglass screen providing better visibility, increased light transmittance, greater airflow, improved curb appeal and enhanced protection from small insects (no-see-ums), debris and dust.

UltraVue® offers the most clarity of our screen mesh options. Constructed of fire-retardant charcoal fiberglass mesh, UltraVue® screens are engineered with even thinner strands and a tighter weave than our BetterVue® screen option for increased visibility, light transmittance, airflow and insect protection.

Our standard screen offers a heavy-duty extruded aluminum frame built strong enough for years of use. Screens glide on metal rollers (both top and bottom) and are adjustable.

Standard Handle

Secure locking hardware is both functional and attractive. Standard Allure handle sets in White, Sandstone, Adobe or Faux Bronze are painted metal on the interior and exterior. Keyed cylinders are optional.

Optional Handle

Signature handle sets are available in twelve popular finishes, one of which is sure to match your homes decor. If there is more than one door on a project, they may be ordered keyed alike. The latch mechanism is dual point, latching both up and down to resist forced entry by lifting the panel. Keyed cylinders are standard.

For additional security, order an optional footbolt, available in White or Sandstone, and enjoy the comfort of knowing that the Timeline slider passes a forced-enrty test.
