To provide design professionals with flexibility in achieving their vision, AD Systems has pioneered fire-rated wood sliding doors. FireSlide surface-mounted, top-hung single-leaf doors offer the aesthetic of sliding flush wood doors, while achieving a 45-minute UL 10B fire rating. The doors include self-closing mechanisms and self-latching hardware.
Compared to swing doors, the sliding doors also save space by eliminating the swing path of the door and by reducing the approach clearance space needed to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. These space savings benefits occur both inside the room and in the corridor.
The fire-rated doors also come with acoustic seals on three sides to help enhance privacy and reduce indoor noise.
A brand of Allegion, AD Systems designs and manufactures door systems for healthcare and other commercial and institutional applications. The AD Systems portfolio includes sliding and swinging doors, perimeter frames, door hardware, gasketing, seals and sidelite panels under its ExamSlide, OfficeSlide and InsetSlide product brands. AD Systems is based in Everett, Wash.
