Can anyone help find the Air Infiltration numbers on the PGT EnergyVue (5400) products? Mainly the sliding glass door and single hung. I cant seem to find them anywhere on the site/brochures.

I didnt know if there is maybe another way to get them from the testing organization possibly?

You will need to call them directly and ask for the Structural Test numbers/report.

My opinion is to look for these qualities in your sliding doors

A multi-chamber profile design
Reinforced main-frame
Heavy-duty sashes
UV-filtering Low-E glass
Argon gas insulator
A warm-edge spacer system
Full perimeter weather stripping
A structural composite roller system.

Hope it helps!

Well considering that describes pretty much every vinyl door on that market, I'm guessing that no, it's not helpful. You should've mentioned tempered glass as well!
