The Minimal Frame Sliding Door
A state-of-the-art sliding system that explores the structural properties of glass, enabling the execution of large glazed areas with the use of minimal profiles. Unlike traditional sliding systems, glass is the THINLINE series structural component, while the frame guides the motion of the door. This takes away the need for all unwanted elements that compose a traditional sliding system, by embedding the frame in the walls, floor, and ceiling, enabling an expanded and visually unobstructed perspective. Its 3/4" vertical profiles keep a consistent, unifying and almost imperceptible connection between panels.
Our standard sill system offers a clean transition of interior and exterior spaces including the look of the sill profile. This sill option is available and fill length and Staggered options
The Hidden Sill offers a near-seamless transition of interior and exterior spaces. Designed with a single 3/8" wide linear slot for each operable panel by integrating flooring between each track. Flooring details are easily removable for easy maintenance and cleaning.
3/4" Vertical Profiles
The world thinnest sliding profile, featuring 3/4" vertical profiles.
Extreme Panel Sizes
Our panel sizes are limited only by the industrial production limit in glass processing.
Integrated Sub-Sill Design
Our Thinline series sliding doors feature a world-class integrated sub-sill drain design. Allowing for immediate water evacuation in three separate options.
The Thinline series are all modular in their designs. Capable of any configuration from pocketing, stacking, bi-parting, postless corners, and unlimited panels.
With the push of a finger
unlike the typical rolling sash design, the THINLINE™ series doors were designed to glide. With the stainless steel ball-bearing track design, this system is capable of moving massive panels with the push of a finger!
With the THINLINE's uniquely designed track system, each operable panel has two rollers for every linear five to six inches of track, each wheel capable of carrying a five hundred pound load. This creates far less friction with the movement of each panel, constraining us only to the industrial production limit in glass processing.
The THINLINE systems have an exceptional ability in reaching even the strictest energy codes. Our Thermal Breaks are made from a complex profile of polyamide 6.6 with 25 % fiberglass reinforcement, which ensures high impact-resistance. Using a high-end extrusion method ensures smooth surfaces and precise geometry despite the fiberglass reinforcement for a high-performing, reliable solution.
Each handle is designed to disappear. Running the entire vertical length of the lead panel, there is no obnoxious hardware, only a finger pull. Our lock hardware is a simple, elegant bolt throw. Utilizing a 3/8" grade 303 Stainless Steel that is undeniably strong, yet subtle in appearance.
