Sliding partition walls
Hillaldam Coburn has added two sliding partition walls to its Glassmaster Omega range. Omega Type GG, designed for internal applications, is ideal for spaces that need dividing into visible rooms, such as shop fronts and conference rooms. The glass is hung at the top of the door, so individual panels can be moved without floor tracks. Omega Type RG, a framed glass wall, can be used internally and externally, and includes movable glazed panels with operable seals.
Underfloor door operator
Geze has launched an automatic underfloor door operator, TSA 160 UFO. It is said to be particularly suitable for glazed facade buildings because it is fitted in the floor to help maintain a transparent design. It can operate door leaves of up to 120kg.

Royde & Tucker has launched a fire door safety mechanism for the residential sector called SmoClo, which is integrated into the head of the door frame.
