The Low Friction Manual Sliding Door System That Can Be Operated By Fingertip Control
Specifically designed for the new Alder Hey Children's Hospital to provide child friendly, full width, glazed bedroom and ward doors. The average opening force of the 200+ Flo-Motion® doors installed at Alder Hey was 10N - less than 50% of the original specified force requirement.
Flo-Motion® doors feature recirculating ball guides on a special low resistance linear track with a damper mechanism. The door sets are fabricated using extruded aluminium profiles and include a self-supporting "goalpost" frame. The standard doorset will be fixed to suitable and solid supports or structural steels installed by the Building Contractor.
The sliding door panels should easily be operated by hand. Once installed, every sliding door is digitally force tested 3 times as specified and a certificate issued showing the mean average opening & closing force with test data in graph format. The system will work in conjunction with doors of a larger mass and weight – please refer to product literature. In addition to the standard formats and glazing options, be-spoke designs can also be offered.
