GEZE Perlan & Rollan glass clamping plates

GEZE perlan glass clamp
Focus on the 30mm glass clamping plates which are used to attach the toughened glass to the top hung sliding door gear for both the GEZE Perlan and the Rollan sliding door gear for frameless glass. The glass does not need to be drilled for the clamps. The clamps are suitable for glass of 8mm, 10mm or 12mm thickness and are supplied with short covers to hide the clamp fastenings. The German name for these is nice and easy to transplate:  Glasklemmplatte! Full length clamp covers are also available in two lengths, 950mm and 1450mm. The cover attaches to the 30mm glass clamping plates and provide an asthetically pleasing look across the top of the door with the minimum of effort. When the end of the covers are more than 200mm from the clamps then a set of End Clamps are required to ensure the stability of the covers at either end of the glass.

Using the GEZE Rollan sliding door gear within an opening instead of a pocket door kit, such as the Hideaway or iMpero (building a homemade ‘pocket’ of your own design). Is there a reason why this wouldn’t work?

The GEZE Rollan sliding door gear can be used inside your own stud work to form a pocket door system – quite a lot of people do this in our experience.  The only disadvantage might be that in order to get a nice rigid wall structure you would have to use some strengthening material in the pocket, and this would give you a thicker finished wall.  It is especially appropriate to consider using sliding door track systems instead of pocket door kits when you already have a rigid block or brick wall forming one side of the pocket, then side mounting the track with the brackets which come in our GEZE Rollan & Perlan kits.

Suitable for 25mm to 44mm thick timber doors, this simple accessory kit allows two timber doors to be used in a telescopic method. The doors are arranged with one door in front of the other.  It can be used in conjunction with most standard top hung timber sliding door kits (such as the GEZE Rollan and Perlan, and similar models of other makes; Coburn, Henderson, Brio, Saheco, Koblenz, etc). When the door furthest from the wall in the closed position is pulled open it moves adjacent to the other door. When the doors are aligned both doors then slide together adjacent to the wall. When the doors are to be closed the first door is pulled out until the telescopic brackets engage then it picks up the second door and both doors move until their finishing position. The threshold is kept clear by having a standard floor mounted floor guide next to the wall for door 2 whilst door 1 is guided by a floor guide mounted onto door 2.

What is the floor guide for the Geze Rollan & Perlan sliding door gear like?

Imagine an upside down capital “T” shaped peice of metal, about 1.5″ long, which is screwed to the floor or threshold, a groove is morticed into the bottom of the door and the door slides back and forth on the guide – never seen, nothing to trip on or collect dust.  Here’s a photo:timber-floor-guide

Which is the quietest sliding door gear?

The Perlan is the best of our German sliding door gear, with the nylon wheels and aluminium track, it runs nice and quietly.  The Projeto 150 runs quietly too, but all sliding gear will make a low “rumble” which resonates more or less depending on the wall construction (brick/stud) and if you have carpets or a hard floor, which is more echo-y.

What is a simultaneous opening kit for sliding door gear?

March 5, 2011 by · Comments Off on What is a simultaneous opening kit for sliding door gear? 

Used on double doors sliding on one track, meeting together in the middle and opening to give a wide access space, the doors are connected to each other via a toothed belt so that, when one door opens (or closes) the other door mirrors it automatically, so the doors open together and close together, but only one door leaf is pushed or pulled.  There are simultaneous opening kits available as optional extras to both the Geze Perlan sliding door gear, and the iMpero double pocket door system.

I need a heavy duty overhead running track with trolley wheels to hang a door 1850 wide x 2750 high. Door weight is approximately 130kg. It will have a softwood frame with one single piece of 10mm toughened glass. What do you recommend?
