flo-motion® Sliding mechanism
FLO-MOTION® - THE LOW FRICTION MANUAL SLIDING DOOR SYSTEM THAT CAN BE OPERATED BY FINGERTIP CONTROL
The Recirculating Ball slides contain precision balls which move in a loop within the cassettes. This means that a high number of balls are continuously in contact with the bearing surfaces, not just a single roller, increasing the contact area which increases the slide load rate capability and decreases the movement force.
The cassettes operating in conjunction with our standard sliding door leaf weighing 135kg have now completed a 1 million cycle test (1.2 metres in each direction = 2.4 million metres). The original force test produced an average opening and closing force of 9.9N and was remeasured after 1 million cycles producing an average opening and closing force of 8.6N.
