Key Features / Performance Characteristics

  • High performance architectural sliding door system designed for high rise apartments.
  • The 101.60mm frame is compatible with CentreGLAZE™ and FrontGLAZE™ framing and can be coupled together in runs of framing and doors.
  • The sliding door is ideal for projects that require very high water resistance when the door panels are not excessively big.
  • As the moving sash is on the outside, we achieve very high water resistance - 600Pa. Also complies with the air conditioning requirements of the Australian Standard.
  • There are a large variety of sliding door combinations possible (XF, FX, FXF, XFF, FFX and FXXF).
  • We can fit sliding flydoors on the inside.
  • Sliding doors can be fitted with surface or mortice deadlocks.
  • Sashes run on custom lowline heavy duty double bogey wheel carriages.
  • Tall bottom rail designed for added strength and makes the doors proportionally correct.
  • Unwanted head recess is fitted with snap-in flat closer to ensure that the clean looks are maintained.
  • Matching Series 461 sliding window available.
