Clariglide sliding doorset developed with architect and contractor input

Specialist Door Solutions (SDS) says its new Clariglide fully glazed sliding door was specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the UK healthcare sector, and developed in line with feedback from healthcare architects and contractors, who wanted a sliding door to save space and improve accessibility.

The door specialist says the product lunch means it means is now the only supplier of both timber-based and aluminium doors for healthcare settings, making it ‘a one-stop-shop’ for NHS and private healthcare providers.

Technical manager, Laurie Ware, said: “We are thrilled to introduce Clariglide to the market.

We are particularly proud of this new product. We started with a vision of creating a door that could be easily operated by patients, staff, or visitors, would be easy to clean, prevent bacterial growth, and incorporate full glass panels with optional integral blinds – and we’ve met every one of the criteria we set.

The sliding action of the new Clariglide reportedly produces minimal air disturbance, while a durable powder-coated finish makes it easy to clean and does not harbour bacteria. SDS said: “The sliding doors are extremely strong and durable, yet light and easy to operate, ensuring they meet the demanding needs of healthcare facilities, and comply with the strict hygiene standards of the healthcare industry. They are rigorously tested to meet all relevant safety standards and regulations.

 The low friction running gear is fully concealed behind a sloping pelmet for improved aesthetics and infection control. No floor track is required, and doors can be specified with soft-close devices in the fully opened and fully closed positions. The ‘unique’ frame design is adjustable in depth to suit the wall thickness and features built in architraves.  All frame fixings are fully concealed within the frame system, with no visible fixings.

Available in a variety of sizes and finishes, Clariglide can be customised to suit the specific needs of each healthcare facility.
