Horman FST Sliding Door System

The Hormann range of sliding door systems includes the MZ multi purpose model, the T30 and T90 fire-rated models, the RS and Sm smoke-tight models, and the stainless steel versions. All of these models are available with options for manual or electric operation, built-in wicket doors, and glazing, and are all made to order for a perfect fit.

The doors are available as single leaf, double leaf and telescopic panel sections which run on multiple tracks. A wicket door is possible with all of these models, subject to minimum width requirements.

The FST MZ Sliding Door (multi-purpose)

This is a double-skinned steel sliding door system, available up to 12000mm wide x 9000mm high in purpose-made sizes.

Colours and Finishes

The door is available in a range of standard colours, with further optional RAL colours available for an extra charge.

FST Colour Range

The surface finish for the door panels can be one of 3 options, and manufactured without a colour finish. Click on the image to see a larger version; this will open a new window/tab.

FST Finishes

The majority of general purpose sliding doors are specified with no bottom tracking, as this reduces potential issues like trip hazards and uneven floor levels. The top-rolling system employs several large rollers in a track above the door, which is the best way to ensure smooth operation and longevity. This does require a suitable structure around the opening, with sufficient space for the door mechanisms.

The MZ is perfect for factories, warehouses, barns, workshops, garages, and any building where tracking or door panel size is an issue. Sliding doors also require minimal maintenance, and are easy to manually operate regardless of size due to efficiently engineered mechanisms. The door can be fitted inside or outside of the opening, however it is often the outer fitting that offers the best solution and results for many applications. When fitting externally there is a steel cover for the tracking, which prevents any possible water ingress.

Wicket door without a threshold

The wicket door option in the Hormann HZ sliding door provides excellent and easy access for pedestrians, day and night, with a well-sized clear passageway when opened. The wicket door can also be specified with panic furniture, for situations where the sliding door is used as a fire door, and can also specified for smoke-tight purposes.

Precision Door Leaf Guides

Precision Door Leaf Guide

The cylindrical track roller and stable track roller work in conjunction with the patented tracking system to provide optimal force balance.

The very quiet operation and easy movement of the FST door is assured by a suspension with ball bearings.

On site, the tracking can be adjusted to ensure the smoothest possible door operation upon completion.
