In the F1 sliding door system, the panels are hinged together and folded in position using (stainless steel) rollers in a roof-mounted driver, ensuring smooth, unhindered and silent movement. It comes with 10mm tempered glazing, which does not bear holes or notches, since glass suspension is achieved with Salinox’s patented design (patent No. 1004694). Each pane is secured and locked with a lock mechanism included in lower aluminum clamps; either cylinder locks or floor bolts, which can be adjusted considering the floor’s morphology and other particularities of each individual project. Water and air tightness is achieved with transparent polycarbonate or aluminum profiles fitted in between adjacent panes, while the end panes on the opening’s sides bear synthetic brushes. Its aluminum profiles come equipped with similar brushes, covering gaps between the top rail and upper profile, as well as between the floor and lower profile in the most efficient possible manner. The available options of the aluminum guide are either standard type with a cross-section of 60x53mm or heavy type with a cross-section of 75x72mm, and based on the requirements of the project we choose the appropriate type. If the size of the panels does not exceed 90cm in width and 240cm in height (with a maximum weight of 70kg) then the standard guide can be used, otherwise, the heavy-duty driver is used, allowing usage of panels of up to 100cm wide and up to 300cm tall (with a maximum weight of 80kg). The F1 system can include two and up to ten panels span per opening, with an optional opening door, allowing for many design options.
