Norseal Slides Into Winning Position At Specification Awards

by | May 12, 2022 | Awards

A product that not only recognises a hard-to-solve problem, but offers an elegant solution has been acclaimed at a major industry award, winning the Product Innovation Award at the GAI RIBA Specification Award. Norseal’s Complete Sealing System for sliding doors now makes it possible to seal the majority of sliding doors with any kind of hardware configuration, regardless of door and frame construction, says the company.

The GAI RIBA Specification Awards recognise excellence in architectural ironmongery specification and design, and are judged by a panel of hardware experts and architects every two years. The Norseal team was presented with the Product Innovation prize at a ceremony at the top of London’s iconic Cheese grater building on 5 May.

It is a well-known “fact” that it is impossible to seal a sliding against smoke, drafts and sound. The Norseal Complete Sealing System puts paid to that myth, claims the company. It is an unobtrusive drop seal that effectively provides smoke and draft protection plus the best possible acoustic performance for sliding doors of up to 55dBRw. It does this by providing automatic sealing top and bottom, and uninterrupted vertical sealing for most latched or unlatched sliding doors, even pocket doors. It works beautifully on timber, metal and even glass doors with zero-threshold, barrier-free access and minimal opening and closing forces.
