System Freeslide

Introduction to System Freeslide

Suitable for 6mm glass up to 1.5m high this system is available in polished aluminium, silver anodised or powder coated. Can be supplied in cut lengths up to 4m or in 2m or 4m stock lengths. Glass panels are located with bedding strip into a runner section that incorporates either nylon or steel ball bearing wheels. These wheels run along a neat bottom track while the top of the glass is supported in the top track. This system is suitable for use in display cabinets, showcases or service hatches.

The usual overlap allowed between two glass doors is 26mm. For glass cutting sizes deduct 27mm from the height of the opening. For safety reasons we recommend all glass should have polished edges. Please check with your glass merchant to ensure that the specification of the glass is suitable for the particular installation.

To calculate the length of side channels or draught excluders deduct 47mm from the opening height. The maximum recommended height to width ratio of each door is 2:1.
