Gravity Defying Sliding Door!

perlan 140 246Ian, our technical adviser, has a keen eye for bad doors. He was watching the Poseidon Adventure (1972) on the weekend when he noticed that, despite the ship being upside down, the sliding doors on the ship still worked. This is an impossibility as the roller would not be resting on the track. The only exception to this, and the only sliding door kit doorstuff stocks to defy gravity, would be the Perlan 140.

When specifying sliding door gear for timber doors, one always needs to know the weight of the doors.  Illustrated in the photo above can be seen the difference in the axle construction between the 3 main GEZE systems; the Rollan 40, the Rollan 80 and the Perlan 140.  The weight limit per door in kgs is the 40, 80 and 140 of the systems’ names.  The Rollans both share the same aluminium track profile, which comes in a mill finish (i.e. not finished).  The Perlan 140 has its own chunkier and more heavy duty track, which is finished in an attractive satin anodised aluminium.  Double doors can be accommodated on the same track by simply buying an extra door pack.

Heavy duty sliding door gear for timber doors

GEZE Perlan sliding door gear for timber doors weighing up to 140kgs.
The heavy duty satin anodised aluminium track comes in various lengths and can easily be cut down. Nylon rollers with low friction nylon wheels and roller bearing axles give superior running performance. The sliding door kit comes complete with track, runners, door brackets, side mounting brackets and stops.  The floor guide is concealed – fixed to the floor next to the door frame, it runs in a groove in the door leaving the threshold free from obstructions.

We recently bought your R40.16 timber sliding door kits up to 40kg, but we’ve changed the doors to heavy pine ones as they’re going to have regular use. Do you have anything suitable?

For doors up to 80kg each in weight, you can use the same track as the R40 that you already have, and buy the Rollan 80 extra door packs, this will give you the wheels etc to run in the tracks, which are strong enough to support your doors.  If the doors are more than 80kg each, then you’d need to go up to the Perlan 140 sliding door gear, which is made by the same manfacturer, Geze, but has a heavier duty track to the Rollan.

I have inherited a small terrace house and want to get maximum space, therefore i have 4 entrances to make into sliding doors. Is your system okay for this use and do they come with pelmets to hide the top of the door runners?

The Rollan 40 sliding door gear would be ideal for your doors, as long as they are under 40kgs in weight.  (Otherwise go up to Rollan 80.)  There is no pelmet system which is designed for use with the Rollans, but it may be possible to make some yourself with wood.  The Perlan 140 has an optional extra pelmet called a clip cover, but the Perlan is for much heavier doors and together the price is higher.  You can view those products as well as the prices on our website at the links in the text.

We have a wardrobe with three large sliding mirror doors running on a ground level track…

…the runners are now worn and need to be replaced. There is an aluminium trim around each door and the bottom one conains a pair of units containing the runners. The existing runners have given 25 years service and both the manufacturer and retailer are out of business. My idea is to simply replace the bottom trim with a new trim containing the runners. Can you help?
Our systems tend not to be suitable for mirrored doors, because of the weight of the doors and the fixing methods, so you would probably find something better elsewhere.  The only one of ours which might be worth a quick look is the Geze Perlan sliding door gear, which can be used as a heavy duty bottom running track (i.e. fitted upside down) but the fixing brackets are designed to be used with timber doors.  You can see it on our website at the link given above.
