Aluminum’s line of sliding glass door systems gives architects and designers customizable options for building spaces that provide utility and modern design.
An example of this is the company’s Laguna Series Sliding Door System, which has now been upgraded with a new softbrake feature for added performance.
The Laguna Series offers smooth, quiet rollers that allow glass doors to slide effortlessly. The softbrake automatically slows down the momentum of sliding glass doors to prevent impact. It takes effect the last four inches of travel in either direction. This helps ensure product longevity.
A contemporary version of the barn door, Laguna Series features an overhead rail that allows glass panels to slide side-to-side on rollers. An anti–lift component prevents rollers from derailing in order to maximize safety.
This is done by attaching a fixed stop onto the roller mechanism right below the rail. Laguna provides an industrial modern aesthetic and can hold doors—including wood doors—up to 220 lbs. (100 kg).
“As interior environments continue to evolve, we remain committed to engineering and manufacturing advanced glass sliding systems that provide function, safety, and durability,” said Al Eini, brand manager of architectural hardware at CRL.
“The new softbrake upgrade for our Laguna Series serves as an example of how we continually improve our products in response to industry needs.”
CRL-U.S. Aluminum manufactures a complete line of interior glass sliders that can be customized for office fronts, conference rooms, lobbies, waiting rooms, and more. For additional information, visit crl-arch.com.
