Flo-Motion doors offer fingertip control with an average opening force of less than 15N for full width glazed bedroom and ward doors. Whilst our standard sliding doors offer excellent light transfer, privacy, ease of use and more importantly, a better overall patient experience, the original formats are not always suitable for every application. Where space is limited, it became evident that there was a demand for another door format in the Flo-Motion portfolio – a telescopic version.
Flo-Motion Telescopic doors feature two sliding leaves connected by a sequencing device so that the primary leaf (fast door) reaches the fully opened or closed position at the same time as the secondary leaf (slow door) reaches its pre-set position.
Flo-Motion Telescopic doors use Accuride re-circulating ball guides on a special low resistance linear track with a damper mechanism. The door sets are fabricated using extruded aluminium profiles and include a self-supporting "goalpost" frame.
Flo-Motion doors have won 4 prestigious awards. Firstly, Laing O'Rourke's 2015 Construction North Award for Innovation, followed by the IHEEM 2015 Product Innovation Award. This was followed by the Building Better Healthcare Best Internal Building Product 2015 and in 2016, the European Healthcare Design Award for Innovation for Quality Improvement.
