Oversized Circular Sliding Doors

Our curved sliding door mechanism is available in three configurations:

  • Single curved screen/door
  • Bi-parting curved doors/screen
  • Curved bi-parting drum slider

As with the linear sliding mechanisms, Open Entrances engineers its curved sliding mechanisms to manoeuvre a curved screen, bi-parting curved doors or a curved bi-parting drum slider.  Drive mechanisms are conceiled either in the soffit above the door or below ground to provide an unobtrusive installation.

Key Features

  • All-glass drums achieve the tightest possible radii with no blemishes, stretch marks or roller wave distortion that are inherent problems associated with curved glass
  • Height is not constrained by conventional sliding door limitations. Door Heights of 6m and above are achievable.
  • Available in three configurations: curved screen, bi-parting curved doors & curved bi-parting drum slider
  • Fully automatic (PIR) or manual (control switch) operation
Oversized Circular Sliding Doors

As with its linear sliding mechanisms, Open Entrances engineers its curved sliding mechanisms to provide a solution to meet the demands of the design intent relevant to each project.

  This enables efficient, safe and reliable automation for each project, either from above soffit or below ground. The aim  is also to ensure that any required structural elements do not impinge on the adjacent façade or partitions and that the solutions are designed as stand alone configurations.

 In the event of Open Entrances' curved sliding mechanisms being used within an entrance, a design philosophy has been developed that focuses on minimalism and transparency. The company's signature all-glass drums achieve the tightest possible radii with no blemishes, stretch marks or roller wave distortion that are inherent problems associated with curved glass.

 Open Entrances rejects the necessity for a solid metal lid or ‘top hat’, just to make life easier by installing mechanisms overhead. Instead, the company endeavours to conceal its curved sliding mechanisms beneath finished floor level, affording the entrance to incorporate a glass canopy where appropriate. Glass drum walls are produced in one piece to minimise the necessity for profiles, creating uninterrupted curves, whilst the company's trademark bull nose curve connections between drum and façade further enhance the clarity of the work.

 On projects that require alternative cladding resources such as metal, timber, composite products or even leather,  the highest class materials are utilised. The quality of design and finish that has allowed Open Entrances to establish itself as a global leader in the design and manufacture of bespoke façade and entrance solutions.
