Our 275 Series Patio Door is designed to emulate our multi-slide door (narrow sightlines, groundbreaking rolling system, hidden handle) but at a more economical price. Available with multiple sills, 1-3/8″ sightlines, and gliding open with ease, this is one of the highest quality patio doors available.
Our 275 Series Patio Door was designed to give the option to save money relative to our luxury multi-slide door system. It’s 1-3/8″ sightline at the interlock is an exact match to our multi-slide and T-Bar Window Wall, and it’s standard sill option allows builders to flush out interior flooring.

Our most popular finish color is Black anodized. We use a Class 1 coating thickness for increased durability. Our anodized material also has an Acid Etch coating which gives a clean, matte finish. Since this is the only finish color we stock, our Black Anodized color typically has our shortest lead time.
Powder Coat AAMA 2604 & AAMA 2605
We offer a variety of powder coat finishes from IFS coatings. Their architectural powder coatings are tough, weatherable, environmentally friendly, and meet and exceed a variety of AAMA performance specifications. Awake products can be powder coated to meet AAMA 2604 or 2605 standards, providing you flexibility to select the paint finish that best meets your budget or the performance needs of your project.
Powder Coat Standard Colors
We have worked with architects to pre-select some of the most popular painted colors on the market. These standard colors have a shorter lead time than custom colors and they all can be powder coated to meet AAMA 2604 or 2605 standards.
Powder Coat Custom Colors
If you would like a color different than the standard colors listed above, IFS coatings can color match to almost any custom color of your choosing. Our color matching process is fairly simple and you can work with our dealer to facilitate.
Our dual seal silicone insulated glass units utilize cutting edge LowE technologies to achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency. We offer a variety of coatings from industry leaders such as PPG, Guardian, and Cardinal. Insulated glass units are also available with argon gas.
For those wanting to truly maximize their view, we offer a variety of low iron glass options such as Starphire from PPG. Low-iron glass typically has a ferric oxide content about ten times less than ordinary plate glass. This low iron content is what provides the glass with exceptional color neutrality and clarity, enabling you to capture your view as clearly as possible.
We offer a variety of laminated glass options which offer improved safety, structural advancement, and sound deadening. Our laminate offerings come in a variety of colors, low-e styles, and interlayer thicknesses.
All of our IG units are available with a warm-edge Ultimate Swisspacer (black color) or a standard stainless steel (black or satin color).
In order to maximize your view, our 275 series patio door eliminates the need for a traditional handle. To achieve this, we designed the pull bar into the lock stile extrusion. Our Standard Lock is a clean, squared block machined out of billet aluminum. Simply slide the block up to unlock, and down to engage the heavy duty lock. The Standard Lock is finished to match the exterior finish color (black anodized or selected powder coat) you selected for your windows and doors.
The standard sill on the patio door is a great choice when your desire is to flush out your flooring to the height of the track. The ¾” tall height is an exact match to the height of our standard multi-slide door sill and works well with most flooring conditions. While this sill does include weeps, weatherstripping, and an extruded leg that penetrates the sill, it is not rated against water penetration.
Water Leg Sill
The water leg sill is the perfect choice for our patio door sill when you are in a tougher climate with harsher rain conditions, or if you are focused on protecting your interior finish floor (i.e. custom hardwood). The 1-3/4” interior leg and weeping system help protect against water intrusion.
In most instances, our Patio Door can common mull (utilizing our custom mull clip) to other patio doors, operable windows, fixed window walls, or hinged doors. In this image, a patio door is common mulled to our fixed window.
Our 275 series patio door systems include a standard track for an extruded aluminum screen on the exterior of the product. This rigid screen is a great way to allow a fresh breeze into your home while keeping unwanted insects out. The screen frame is always finished to match the exterior finish color of your windows and doors. To make sure your view is as unobstructed as possible, our screens utilize the “nearly invisble” UltraVue screen mesh with excellent visibility (eVis).
There are many high-qualified sliding door automation systems in the market. Awake worked with most of these companies to ensure our designs and head tracks would work well with their systems and allow the panels to be motor operated if they so desired. These motors are sold separately but can be purchased from various suppliers and manufacturers throughout the country.
Unemployment is the greatest contributor to recidivism.
Our Patio Door products are named the 275 Series to draw attention to the fact that in 2008 when the federal unemployment rate was 5%, the unemployment rate for formerly incarcerated individuals was 27%1. While surviving prison and the extremely long sentence lengths in the USA is hard enough, getting a good job when leaving prison is often the most difficult part of successfully re-entering society. Awake Window & Door Co., with your help, is creating jobs and providing meaningful second chance employment to break this recidivism cycle.
