From August 22 – 25, 2018 Zimmer GmbH Daempfungssysteme will be presenting two Soft Close innovations at the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in Atlanta (USA), the top meeting point for the woodworking and furniture-making industry in America. The damping specialist presents with its Silento Porta and Silento Doppio two universally applicable and ready-to-use self-closing devices for sliding doors. These systems can be connected in many different ways and ensure gentle opening and closing of heavy sliding doors up to 120 kg.
Silento Porta self-closing device
A high operation comfort and load capacity is combined by the Silento Porta: A complete hardware system to slow down smoothly heavy sliding doors and pull them silently into their end position. Thanks to its extremely compact design the unit can be used in a wide variety of rail systems. This system can be connected in many different ways: integrated invisibly into an existing rail, mounted to a diverse range of positions (flat, upright, right or left flush) or fastened adaptively onto the door slide mechanism. The Silento Porta is available with a fluid damper with a 70 mm or 100 mm stroke.
Silento Doppio self-closing device
The innovative two-way damping of the Silento Doppio is also suitable for small installation spaces and it can be integrated easily and invisibly into existing systems or mounted flexibly. This comfortable self-closing system has been expanded by a version for heavy sliding doors. Whereas other damping systems use two units for braking and closing, the Zimmer Silento Doppio closes smoothly heavy sliding doors up to 120 kg in both directions with just one unit. The increased power is due to a new, two-piece housing. This new development is available with a fluid damper with a 50 mm, 70 mm or 100 mm stroke.
The Soft Close innovations will be presented to the specialist audience from August 22 – 25, 2018 in hall C at booth 2558 during the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in Atlanta (USA).
