Commercial aluminium systems specialist Jack Aluminium has partnered with Geze UK to create the first PAS24 approved automatic sliding door system.
It’s been designed to fill a gap in the healthcare and care home sectors, where residents and care teams need the convenience of sliding doors, but safety and security is also paramount.
The new system was first launched at The FiT Show in May on the Geze stand which was part of the Council for Aluminium Building (CAB) pavilion.
Jeff Pearson, Sales & Marketing Director at Jack Aluminium Systems, explains: “We knew from talking to customers that there was a real market for an automatic sliding door system that could meet the high levels of security that these healthcare facilities need.
“This new product resolves this issue for them. It’s available in single and double sliding door configurations. The doors are automatic so that residents, staff and visitors can easily enter the building. And it’s PAS24 approved and SBD compliant too – a great addition to our range of secure, communal entrance doors.
“At Jack Aluminium, we create systems that design out compromise and this is another great example of that. It offers a highly durable and secure remote access door system that aids the functionality of a building.”
The system uses Jack Aluminium’s JD47 Non-thermal Door & Shopfront system and Geze’s bespoke hardware. Geze is selecting a network of approved fabricators to supply the PAS24 automated sliding door system.
