GM Toproll® Balance
Sliding Door System
Glas Marte GmbH, Austria
Bernhard Feigl, Austria
With an overall height of only 50 mm, GM Toproll Balance is one of the lowest profile sliding door systems. The small distance between the glass and guide rail, and the absence of a brush seal, results in an almost completely closed construction. The guaranteed vertical position of the glass doors comes from a simple principle: two rollers on two guide rails. The system can be mounted on the wall or ceiling in a single- or double-leaf configuration. The combination with fixed elements can be integrated into the system.
Statement by the jury
»The sliding door system is impressive for the exceptional combination of the height of the construction, the maximum weight of the glass and the roller-guidance system.«
