The EDGE |s| was created for practical construction and installation.
Slot Caps are inserted into all sliding tracks for shipping and installation, in place of the Sheaves. This feature limits the weight during installation and reduces potential damage to the Sheaves. When the sliding panels are installed, builders can utilize the extra Slot Caps to cover the installed Sheaves until ready for full operation.
Construction Cost Savings:
The shallow 2 ½” Arche-Duct costs less to install than typical door styles, especially in upper floors. Most other systems require at least 6” of depth and have complicated pedestals to hold the finished floor.
Protection During Construction:
The Slot Cap is a sacrificial aluminum extrusion to prevent debris from filling the Slot during construction. It also provides the floor contractor with a linear guide during setting.
Builders can choose from side drains or bottom drains and the factory will locate each drain where desired.
Fewer Installation Costs:
The EDGE |s| saves labor through smart design. Competing systems require extensive field labor to complete panel assembly. By distinction, the |s| is factory assembled and glazed.
