Heavy-Duty Sliding Doors
A hospital needed a practical solution to hang sliding doors and solve a patient handling problem. Traditionally the doors hang from a top rail and move on rollers. However, ceiling hoist tracks had been installed across the door openings to support patients while moving them from the corridors to the bed. The hospital still needed sliding doors that complied with legislation and stand up to heavy usage.
One of our distributors recommended the heavy-duty 9301 slide in a 36" length with a white coating. Two slides were fitted to each door, one at the top to take the door weight and one at the bottom as a guide. Success!
Another option for heavier doors is Model AL4140, a corrosion resistant aluminum slide that carries loads up to 1,323 pounds.
