CURVED SLIDING DOORS TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS AT A GLANCE
CURVED SLIDNG DOORS TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS PLUS OUR SUPERB CUSTOMER SERVICE
These Curved Sliding Doors Technical Specifications will help with conceiving, costing and designing your curved sliding glass doors and making sure your project turn out the way you envisioned.
We should stress that while we are making as much information as possible readily accessible on line, we are very pleased to assist you directly from the very outset, in all aspects of costing, designing and installing our curved sliding doors systems.
This includes help with technical drawing details, the details of specific components of our curved sliding door assemblies and supplying you with CAD drawings for implementation within your design drawings.
We take pride in our thorough customer service so if you have any questions or would like any assistance at all, please contact us (link) by email or phone for a prompt reply.
We offer three options for the Curved Glass in the doors:
- Option 1 (1.7 kW/m2 centre pane U Value) - 28 mm thickness Double Glazing comprised of 6mm Clear toughened – 16mm air cavity – 6mm toughened Pilkington K glass.
- Option 2 (1.5 kW/m2 centre pane U Value) - 28 mm thickness Double Glazing comprised of 6mm Clear toughened – 16mm Argon filled cavity – 6mm toughened Pilkington K glass.
- Option 3 (1.0 kW/m2 centre pane U Value) - 28 mm thickness Double Glazing comprised of 6mm Clear toughened – 16mm air cavity – 6mm toughened high performance Low-E using the guardian SN51 glass.

- W3-2F – 3 panes/doors, one that slides and two that are fixed (2 tracks) – appx 33% opening
- W3-F - 3 panes/doors, two that slide and one that is fixed (3 tracks = 2 tracks + external fixed pane) – appx 66% opening
- W4 – 4 panes/doors that all slide – doors meeting in the middle (2 tracks) – appx 50% opening

- Custom configurations - additional customized configurations are possible and should you require these, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
DEFLECTION OF BEAMS OR OPENINGS
Windows and doors should be installed into structural opening lintel/portal frame where the opening shall be designed to support and transfer loads to foundations without undue movement, with all loads designed to be transferred from the façade to the primary structure. The actual permissible deflection would normally be determined by the building designer in accordance with structural codes. For optimum performance it is normal to design nominally zero, i.e. <1mm, serviceability deflection.
- 1mm deflection/serviceability limit
- 3mm deflection will affect the coverage weather strips and likely to affect the performance of doors
- 10mm will affect the safety of doors and would cause operation problems
