In the unique Hawaiian market, people desire wide-open expanses, with little or no barrier between their interior and exterior living spaces. For this environment, PAM has developed the Hawaiian Effects (HFX) multislide door.
Our all-wood HFX doors use flush-profile locks and edge pulls, which allow the panels to stack and glide quietly along their tracks and disappear completely into the jamb pocket. These products are not suitable for environments where weather-resistance is a factor, but in the tropical locale of Hawaii, the climate is so ideal that window and door products remain open most of the time.
Many of these custom homes incorporate doors in a 90 degree corner application, with 20-30 ft. of pocketing doors on either side. This type of architecture is unique to Hawaii and gives the homeowner the full benefits of living in the tropics, where the emphasis is on natural materials and the "lanai" lifestyle that is found throughout the South Pacific.
