A comparison of the GEZE roller carriages: Rollan 40, Rollan 80 & Perlan 140 sliding door gear

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.

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.

If I need a heavier duty roller would I be looking at the R80.24? To support the bottom of the door can you please confirm what parts I need, I’ve been looking at the BK4?

Yes, the R80 can take up to 80kgs per door, all the weight is taken by the top track & carriage.  If you want a full length floor guide, you can use the BK4 Bottom guide kit with it.  The Rollan kit does come 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 the invisible Rollan floor guide is the best & most elegant thing to use.  You can see a photo of the Rollan floor guide at the link here.


What door thickness can the Rollan 40 sliding door gear handle?

There is no limit to the thickness of the door, within reason.  If the door is too wide, then all you would need to do is add a wooden baton between the track and the wall, as a spacer.  The thing to be aware of is the 40kg weight limit, if the door is thicker than 55mm for example, it might be better to go for the Rollan 80, which can support up to 80kg.
