Hillaldam Coburn has launched the Glidemaster as an alternative to roller shutters. The sliding panels are hung from an aluminium track, which allows more headroom and requires no floor channels.

The Royal model features tempered glass for increased scratch resistance and is suitable for banks and hotels, while the Crystal has full-height shatter-resistant polycarbonate panels. Alumina features full-height solid anodised aluminium panels, while Alumina Airflow offers the security of a solid enclosure combined with an open grille to allow airflow.

The Classic range has a chequered effect created by aluminium panels, while Program 21 and 41 are lightweight unglazed closures. Program 42 offers maximum visibility and can give additional security if fitted inside the window.
