Introducing the next step in the evolution of the sliding door: the patent-pending Slide & Seal™ system, only from Pacific Architectural Millwork. The innovative hardware at the heart of the Slide & Seal™ automatically seals your door when you close it. When the panels reach the closed position, an independently-operating door bottom automatically drops and seals each panel with the surface of the floor, while a mechanism in the head track tilts the panels slightly outward, creating a weather-resistant enclosure around the perimeter.
The Slide & Seal™ improves upon Lift & Slide hardware in nearly every way:
- No more bulky and expensive handles needed to operate each panel
- No need to remove and store handles when you want to stack flush into a pocket
- Adjustable hardware that allows for fine-tuning in the field and self-corrects for variations in the floor surface
- Optional fully-automated panels that seal.
Crafted out of solid stainless steel and available in a variety of finishes, the proprietary H7100 handle remains recessed in the face of the panel until you press a tab at the bottom. The counter-weighted handle then pivots and drops into the open position, allowing you to operate the panels comfortably. And because each panel seals automatically, only one handle per lead panel is required for the entire system.
