A sliding first
Jack Aluminium has partnered with Geze UK to create the “first PAS24 approved automatic sliding door system”.
The door has been designed to fill a gap in the healthcare and care home sectors, where residents and care teams need the convenience of sliding doors, but safety and security is also paramount.
Jeff Pearson, sales and marketing director at Jack Aluminium Systems, said: “We knew from talking to customers that there was a real market for an automatic sliding door system that could meet the high levels of security that these healthcare facilities need. This new product resolves this issue for them.
“It’s available in single and double sliding door configurations. The doors are automatic so that residents, staff and visitors can easily enter the building. It’s PAS24 approved and SBD compliant too.”
The system uses Jack Aluminium’s JD47 non-thermal door and shopfront system and Geze’s bespoke hardware. Geze is selecting a network of approved fabricators to supply the PAS24 automated sliding door system.
