Ennepetal, 19.01.2015. Full frontage transparency or expressive glass design with a safety plus: that is what laminated safety glass can deliver – provided that the glazing is held securely in place. Enter HSW EASY Safe, a new horizontal sliding wall with door rails top and bottom featuring DORMA’s innovative Clamp & Glue technology – eliminating the need for glass preparation.
The system offers extensive design flexibility with a wide range of finishes, numerous functional options integrated in each panel, and a broad range of configuration possibilities. The assembly can be straight, angled or segmented, with the open panels parked in view at either side of the frontage or disappearing in concealed niches. Other layouts are also available. Single- or double-action doors for access through the closed frontage can either be installed as pivoting end panels or integrated into the sliding panels. And the DORMA ITS 96 concealed door closer incorporated in the pivoting/sliding panels offers all the aesthetic advantages of virtual invisibility. Similarly discreet, safe and convenient locking devices top and bottom enable implementation of the specific panel function required.
A color-coded indicator system shows the status of the top locking device on a pivoting/sliding panel. The enabled function (sliding or pivoting) is shown as green, red means locked. The bottom locking devices, coupling the panels in the frontage to each other or securing their position on the floor, can be operated by foot, while a cylinder lock secures the whole assembly.
Double brush seals are integrated in the top door rails as standard. As an option, seals at the bottom and additional vertical brush seals over the full height of the panels give even better draft-proofing for greater comfort. For assemblies where the frontage leads to an outdoor area or wherever differing climatic conditions have to be separated, the DORMA HSW FLEX Therm with insulation glass and all-round thermal-break frames is available as the solution of choice.
Full frontage transparency even with laminated safety glass – securely held in place.
