-Knock-Down (KD) Door Perfect for Space Constrained Jobsites, Stocking Dealers-

QUEENS, NY, January 20, 2020 – Responding to the needs of space constrained job sites and stocking dealer/distributors, Crystal Window & Door Systems is delighted to announce its new Series CVP-1100 Knock-Down (KD) Vinyl Sliding Patio Door.  With its welded-corner factory glazed sash panels and mechanically fastened master frame ready for job-site assembly, the Crystal Series 1100 offers fenestration and construction professionals easy handling, transport, storage, stocking, and installation, all at a great value.  The KD Series 1100 comes in standard 5-ft. and 6-ft. sizes and, with standard glazing, is stocked by Crystal for immediate availability.

“Crystal developed this product in response to our trade customers’ requests.  They were seeking an affordable vinyl patio door in a KD configuration suitable for jobsites challenged by small elevators, cramped staircases, narrow halls, and tight doorways,” said Blaise Benevenga, Crystal’s New Jersey/New England Sales Manager.  “We are very pleased the Crystal KD Series 1100 Patio Door meets all those requirements and more at a very competitive price.”

The extruded white vinyl Crystal KD Series 1100 comes with complete assembly hardware and instructions.  The patio door disassembled master frame, factory glazed sash panels, and insect screen are all packaged separately for space-saving storage and easy handling.  The KD product can be readily moved and loaded for transport by one person rather than the team effort required for a standard patio door.  The Crystal KD Series 1100 is applicable to a variety of building applications including private homes, townhouses, garden apartments, and multi-family buildings.  It is also the perfect solution for stocking window, door, and building product dealer/distributors with cramped and limited space warehouses.


The Crystal KD Series 1100 patio door, available in either 5’ or 6’ widths by 6’-8” tall (nominal) sizes, features a 4-⅝” frame depth.  While the knock-down master frame is mechanically fastened, the operating and fixed sash panels have fusion-welded mitered joints and are factory glazed.  The door’s high glass-to-frame ratio utilizes 1” insulated glass units (IGUs) with ⅛” double-strength tempered glass. A latch locking pull handle, adjustable tandem rollers, and stainless steel sill track cover ensure security and ease of operation.  The fully reversible sash panels feature a full interlocking meeting rail and double weather-stripping.


Numerous options can be used to tailor the Crystal KD Series 1100 Patio Door to be a perfect fit for virtually every project.  Optional matching sidelight, transom, and circle top units, as well as between-the-glass grids or applied grids add style, functionality, and beauty to the project.  Low-E glass and argon gas filling enhance energy efficiency and a nailing fin option aids installation.  Other options include a key locking handle upgrade and custom color availability on large quantity orders.
