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.

sf-t telescopic sliding door kit

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.

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:-

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

February 16, 2012 by · Comments Off on 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

I am interested in buying a set of your Rollan 40 sliding door gear or heavier but none of the doors I am looking at give the weight it is for a double internal door to divide open plan living room diner. Any idea of the weight of those ordinary pine doors?

The weight for a solid pine door with dimensions 800 x 2100 x 33mm thick would be approximately 32 kgs, if your doors are similar in size to this, the Rollan 40 system would be the one to go for.  If your doors are larger, telephone us with the details and we’ll work out the approximate weight.

Does the Rollan sliding door track cause the doors to sit proud of the door frameor architrave, or do you sell spacers to bring the running gear forward?

If you’re using double doors to part and slide alongside a wall either side of the opening, and the opening has architrave/frame protruding, the doors will have to pass that and thus will stand out further than otherwise.  The wall brackets which come in the Rollan kit do not act as spacers, and so you could perhaps consider making a wooden baton and fixing the track to that.

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

January 7, 2011 by · Comments Off on 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.

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?

September 18, 2010 by · Comments Off on 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!
