Door Hardware Helps Boost Aesthetics


ASSA ABLOY recently introduced its new Designer Series flat track sliding door hardware system for quiet operation and stylish heavy sliding door installations.

Perfect for high-end offices or hotels, the Designer Series flat track sliding door hardware is a decorative sliding door system that brings a sleek look and feel to "barn door" style installations. Also suitable for other hospitality environments, the Designer Series flat track sliding door hardware system is available with five robust hanger/wheel designs, and five durable finishes to complement any decor.

"Designers and architects appreciate the sleek flat track design will deliver a contemporary, modern industrial, or rustic look depending on the finish and configuration they choose," says Anne Baumann, product manager with ASSA ABLOY. "Installers like the system’s simplicity and that the brackets supplied offer adjustable clearances to account for different door thicknesses and various trim.”

The system's heavy-duty solid steel wheels with a polymer-resin contact surface glide smoothly along the track, providing smooth and quiet operation, while making the system perfect for shared spaces. This attractive yet durable system has been designed for a range of wood doors weighing up to 500lbs and coordinates beautifully with the Rockwood AccenTek™ door pulls and flush pulls.
