SLIDO Design 80-M concealed softstop sliding door kit – NEW!!!

SLIDO Design 80-M concealed softstop sliding door kit
The SLIDO Design 80-M is a completely concealed sliding door track system with softstop at both ends.  The system uses a concealed top track that is attached to the back of the door with two bottom rollers to support the weight of the door at either end.  The bottom rollers do not need any track as they just roll on the hard floor, and a morticed floor guide helps keep the door running straight.  The top roller carriage is designed to take some of the weight of the door and keep the door in place whilst the bottom rollers take the rest of the door weight.  The top track is partially morticed into the top of the door (see diagram on the right) and has a softstop brake at either end.  The SLIDO range of sliding door gear offers superior running performance due to low friction nylon wheels and roller bearing axles.

The Rollan sliding door gear kit comes with short metal floor guides…

…which are designed to be used in conjunction with a groove which you have to mortice into the bottom of the door.  If the door doesn’t travel more than it’s own width, then manufacturer Geze‘s invisible Rollan floor guide is the best & most elegant thing to use:-

I’m currently detailing a sliding door using the Projeto 150 system and was wondering if you have the dimensions of the floor mounted guide for the timber door as it seems to be the only element not dimensioned on the pdf?

The door stops for the Projeto 150 are on the track itself, not the floor, and included in the kit.  The dimensions of the floor guides are 19.8mm width x 51mm length x 17mm tall.  You mortice a groove in the bottom of the door so it runs along the floor guide.  They are 304 stainless steel.

When using a Rollan sliding door kit to convert a standard timber door to sliding, how best do I create the groove in the door for the standard fixed floor guide?

The best tool for morticing the groove is a router – short & sweet!

Would the Foldaside 100 system be OK for my doors: I want to have two doors sliding/ folding to one side, each door weighs approx 23 kg and is 600 mm wide?

Yes, the Foldaside 100 would be fine.  Because your doors are at the maximum width you definitely need to use the floor guide (which is supplied in the 2 door kit).

A curved floor guide for curved sliding doors?

Q: (from Clare) The company I work for recently installed two semi-circular “pods” or freestanding meeting rooms. The doors are sliding and are held onto the frame by the top track, but when you open and close them there is some sideways movement which makes them feel unstable.  I was therefore wondering whether the BK2 mortice bottom track listed on your site can be bent into a reasonably shallow curve and still function as a floor guide, or whether it has to be kept straight to work?  Alternatively if you have any other products that you think might meet our requirements I would be very keen to know about these.
A: (from Doorstuff) Yes, the BK2 Mortice bottom track & sliders can be used to guide a curved sliding door, a good idea in fact!
