Sunflex SF70 Parallel - Aluminium Sliding Doors
The SF70 Parallel Sliding system has a unique design in that it operates with the use of a single (monorail) track. The movable panel tilts inwards for ventilation and then projects itself parallel out of the track and slides behind the fixed panel. This means there is no exposed track when the doors are closed. The Parallel Sliding system is available in 2, 3 or 4 panels, in either timber or thermally broken aluminium and is for all external applications.
The main benefit provided by this system is that, in a closed position, there is no visible track threshold as with normal twin track sliding doors. You can even incorporate a tilt and turn window within one of the fixed panels, providing the luxury of a single access door for added convenience. The system is also available in engineered timber (SF65).

The standard finishes for the SF70 parallel slider are silver anodised, white RAL 9016, aluminium RAL 9006, grey aluminium RAL 9007 and anthracite grey RAL 7016. All handles are specially designed to compliment the parallel sliding system and the standard colours are black, white or aluminium. Gaskets are in black and marine/chemical environment paint finishes are available. Over 200 other RAL colours are available and even the option to have a dual colour system, for example white RAL internally and grey RAL externally.
The Sunflex 70 (70mm front to back) is a thermally broken aluminium system manufactured from extruded aluminium. Designed to combat heat loss and prevent condensation. A profile based on the award winning concepts of the Sunflex folding sliding door range (bifold doors). It exceeds building regulation standards for all external applications and is available with a square or round edge profile.
The PST system provides a high level of security as standard. All moveable panels are locked into position by an internal, key-lockable handle that operates a concealed, multi-point locking system to all four of the surrounding sides; this meets the requirements of the Association of British Insurers. This unique design of the single (monorail) track and operating system ensures that it is impossible to lever the panels out of the running track. In addition all glazing is to the inside only.
The PST is a severe weather rated system with continuous triple gaskets to the outer, middle and inner edges surrounding the perimeter of each panel. It achieves DIN 18055, Category C performance for wind loading and water leakage.
Both systems can also be used to manufacture single doors, French doors, tilt and turn windows and fixed glazed screens. Sunflex uses matching profile sections for these products to achieve an aesthetically uniform appearance throughout.
