Glazing details:

‘Dry’ glazed with flush sills, enabling trouble-free pane replacement. Standard glazing: 5 mm float glass single glazing, or insulating glass units with 2 x 4 mm float glass. Glass upgrade from 5 mm to 28 mm (maximum) is possible. Special glazing is available on request.

Track system and running gear:

Running and guide rails are flush-mounted into the system. The extruded aluminium top running rail (reference 5-45-01-x) is laminated with 10 mm wood strips inside and outside. The aluminium floor rail is designed without a threshold and can, as an option, be set into the floor for shop fronts or for ‘barrier-free dwellings’ in compliance with DIN 18 025. Three floor rails options are offered, finished in EURAS eloxal E6 EV1 or E6 C34.

Each top-mounted running gear unit has four universally jointed (cardanic) rollers for even load spread. Trolley bearings run quietly on a sealed, heat and cold resistant running surface of glass fibre reinforced polyamide. The 200 kg capacity trolleys are height adjustable.

Ironmongery/ Accessories:

All fittings are corrosion-free and are concealed within the profiles. Hinges available in one RAL and two EURAS eloxal colours.

Panels are latched and unlatched by means of internal flat handles with 180° rotation; lockable handles are optional. Handles are available in four RAL colours as standard – other finishes available on request. Aluminium locking bars with minimum 24 mm travel, act on the top and bottom track; bar ends are fitted with polyamide caps to prevent metal to metal contact.

Standard ironmongery for entry/ exit door: Handle inside and outside; three point locking handle and cylinder available as an option.
