Soltaire is a British designed and manufactured product that really stands out against other lower quality products on the market. Made from marine grade 316 stainless steel and supplied with an anodised aluminium track, it is highly corrosion resistant enabling it to be used in high traffic and corrosive environments such as coastal applications. It is an ideal system to select when corrosion resistance and smooth fingertip operation are paramount to the project.
Soltaire is available in three weight capacities, 120kg, 180kg and 250kg
Soltaire has been designed to be one of the smoothest systems on the market, and its special design minimises friction to allow fingertip operation, even on doors weighing up to 250kg. A concave wheel and running track coupled with a high speed stainless steel bearing and specialist nylon wheels work together in harmony to reduce friction and ensure that the door moves effortlessly.
Versatility of application
Soltaire in not limited to single run straight sliding applications. It is capable of accommodating two panels to create a bi-parting application on a single track, and multiple lines of track can also be supplied to create a bespoke operating system with all the benefits of Soltaire.
P C Henderson also offer a selection of hangers to suit timber and metal doors and an additional offering of a hanger to be used with an MDF door on lighter applications up to 120kg. All of the hanger bodies are cast using marine grade 316 stainless steel, the industry preferred material and method as it allows them to form unusual shapes for ease of installation and introduce additional features such as anti-slip features to the product to enhance its application.
A variety of guides, tracks, stops and brackets are also available to ensure that your project is a success.
To enhance the versatility of the product, the track can be soffit or face fixed for flexible installation options. Many existing customers have commented on how easy it was to install this product.
Low headroom option
P C Henderson has launched Soltaire Low Headroom, a new product with all the benefits of the tried and tested Soltaire range with the added benefit of maximising the door height by reducing clearance between the track and the top of the door to 2mm. Low headroom products are a clever way of hiding all of the operating door hardware, enabling the end user to create a modern and minimalistic finish with taller doors.
Every care has been taken to ensure that this product is fully adjustable, even when fitted, and easy to install. This additional extra is available across all the weight capacities in the Soltaire range and supports the current trend for opening up the side of a building and creating an outdoor/indoor experience using quality timber doors.
PC Henderson have confidence in all of their systems as they are tested to at least 100,000 cycles in their dedicated testing facility before being released onto the market.
