System Heavislide

Introduction to System Heavislide

Suitable for 10mm glass up to 2.5m 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 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 serving hatches where 10mm glass or taller doors are required.

The usual overlap allowed between the two glass doors is 26mm. For glass cutting sizes deduct 45mm 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 the speciļ¬cation of the glass is suitable for the particular installation.

To calculate the length of side channels or draught excluders deduct 76mm from the height of the opening. The maximum recommended height to width ratio of each door is 2:1.


Steel ball bearing wheels in steel case should be fitted into W346B runner section one at each end up to 0.6 sq m of glass, two at each end up to 1 sq m and three at each end up to 1.5 sq m. This is for guidance only. The number of wheels required for any individual system will depend also on the size of each door, the supporting structure and the frequency of use.


Single top track/side channels can be used either to guide the top of a single sliding door or for a sliding door to locate into at the side of the opening. Alternatively can be used to frame a fixed panel. Supplied drilled and countersunk for fixing. Polished aluminium. Anodised in gold, silver or bronze or black powder coated.
