The 3+ year design of the EDGE | s | was largely due to the formation of proprietary hardware, unlike EVERYTHING else in the market.
Each sliding panel glides on a series of 2” diameter stainless-steel wheels every 4”, making the | s | the smoothest rolling door on the global market. The wheels are housed in stainless-steel Sheaves, which can easily be removed for cleaning.
To achieve a zero-edge at each wall, we use a simple approach for locking the lead panel. Fleetwood’s Archetype Blade is mortised within the Fin-Keep or Fin-Lead Stile cavity so as not to disrupt the view. The Blade is made of marine grade stainless steel and operates in a simple up and down path.
When the Archetype Blade is lowered into the locked position, the tapered tip slips into a stainless-steel Case, which is buried flush in the finished floor.
To achieve the thinnest vertical sightlines, customers should opt for our standard Keeps. In this minimal arrangement, the Fin-Lead Stile will come with our exclusive stainless-steel Fin-Pull to retrieve the panel from the embedded jamb.
