Profiles can be flat-faced for a crisp appearance, or curved to add a more distinctive and stylish accent to the external treatment.

Choice of configurations

Options range from a simple two-leaf bi-parting system, to a multi-panel sliding patio door or window on two tracks.

Ease of operation

Robust frames, durable hardware, a quality track and roller system and structural accuracy combine to ensure low maintenance, superior reliability and a smooth sliding operation, even with the largest leaf sizes.

Range of sizes

The window or door can be supplied in a choice of sizes to suit individual project requirements and separate slider tracks in aluminium, polyamide or stainless steel are available to carry varied leaf configurations.

Glazing options

Roller options

Rollers can be standard or adjustable and are double to support the loadings of larger glazed units. The double roller can be replaced quickly and easily without dismantling the leaf or frame.
