For Immediate Release


Aldora Aluminum and Glass Products of Charleston (formerly Coastal Glass Distributors) is proud to announce its launch of Aldora’s aluminum storefronts and entrances.  Aldora of Charleston is now offering 2 non-impact flush-glazed storefront systems with complimentary narrow and medium stile non-impact doors as well as 3 impact storefront systems and a variety of high design pressure impact doors.


Aldora has a fully equipped production line that manufacturers custom size entrance doors.  It will also be able to fabricate and pre-glaze its full line of impact storefront products.  Pre-glazing has proven to be an excellent option as the numbers of field glaziers has declined.  It also allows glazing business owners to focus their time on driving sales versus fabricating product in their plant.


The storefront selections include framing systems for ¼” glazing, 1” IG, 9/16” and 1 5/16” laminated-insulated, 1 5/16” Level II bullet resistant glass.  Two impact systems can also be thermally broken for energy requirements or LEED projects.  Aldora’s doors have a solid reputation in South Florida for their size and design pressures.  The K2 Summit can be configured to 8’0” x 10’0” pairs, with panics and 1 5/16” laminated-insulated glass.  All impact products carry a Miami Dade NOA and Florida Building Code approvals.


“The Aldora product line is perfect for Aldora of Charleston’s customer base.  The diverse product line allows us to serve our impact customers on the coast as well as our non-impact customers inland.  We will also gain the benefit of the energy efficient products since that segment is certainly growing”, says Trent Hartley, Branch Manager.
