Optimising space, access and mobility with Clariglide

Clariglide is designed to meet the requirements of modern healthcare environments. Its smooth sliding operation optimises floor space and supports efficient room planning without the need for floor tracks.

Sliding doorsets facilitate easier movement for staff, beds and patients. Clariglide’s wide opening enhances patient and bed mobility while maintaining corridor and ward space. Its low-friction running gear simplifies movement ensuring accessibility for all users.

Belt-driven synchronising technology requires less energy to operate by enabling the simultaneous opening and closing of bi-parting and telescopic doors with just one leaf.

Discuss Your Project

Clariglide can be configured in various systems, including single sliding, bi-parting, and telescopic options. For further details on available systems, discuss your requirements with a Project Consultant.


Enhanced Visibility and Hygiene with Clariglide

With its all-glass panels, SDS Clariglide provides full patient-in-view, allowing for supervision without the need to enter the room. This reduces infection risk and patient disturbance, supporting restful recovery. The glazed panels create a lighter, brighter environment and can be specified with integral tilt-functionality blinds for privacy and light control.

The smooth sliding doors feature a sloping pelmet and are constructed from robust, non-porous materials that are easy to clean and inhibit bacterial growth. Clariglide's design minimises air disturbance, further reducing infection risk and making the doors an ideal solution for critical healthcare environments such as ICUs, HDUs, isolation wards, and cardiac wards.

Highly configurable and designed for high use environments

Clariglide is engineered for high-use environments in internal healthcare settings. The integrated anti-slam damper and closing device ensure long-term durability and safety. This highly configurable doorset is available in a range of sizes, finishes, and formats, including single sliding, bi-parting, and telescopic door types. 

Crafted from high-quality aluminium, Clariglide can be finished in any RAL colour using Polyester Powder Coat or Satin Anodised Aluminium. Its unique adjustable frame profile with architraves can accommodate wall depths ranging from 95mm to 185mm.

To facilitate a quick and simple installation, Clariglide is provided as a complete assembly, including door, frame, sidescreen, glazing, and sliding gear.
