The window shade type mechanism has a tendency to jam. Screen will come out of the side track. Don't try to overpower it as you will find that the pot metal tabs on the release mechanism will fracture. Replacements not available from Anderson. Replacing my door this year.
screen only in top half.
all hardware must be installed
The locking mechanism is very easy and works great. The bottom will not open but the top will. The top does have a screen and the bottom is just glass. Great door. We have two toddlers and two dogs and it works great for them
It is not.
From the outside, the door’s handle is on the right and hinges on the left. Opening on the handle side from outside on right.
The screen opens from the top of the door. It opens to halfway down.
I’m not sure how thick the glass is, but it seems to be very durable. I’ve installed this door both at my home and my mom’s and we’re both extremely happy with the doors.
The top window slides down to reveal the screen. When the window is slid back up the screen stores back up in the top of the door.
