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?
November 2, 2011 by EditorYes, 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.
Please advise on the sliding folding doors we want to use them on external 3 x 4m is there a way of waterproofing them? And can these be without wood, just glass?
November 21, 2011 by EditorThe only door kits we do which include weather seals for external doors are the TIWI sliding & folding doors. However it is for timber framed doors only, glazed is OK. We don't know of a standard kit for this job, we think you'll have more luck with a bespoke architectural glass supplier.
