Axis Flo-Motion® Manual Sliding Doors product innovation winner at Healthcare Estates Exhibition

Axis Automatic Entrance Systems and Accuride International have worked together to design and produce an innovative sliding door mechanism for what has become the Axis Flo-Motion® Door System.

Choosing their winner, the judges said: “This product is new and very innovative. It is a classic example of British engineering with a manufacturer rising to the challenge and significantly reducing the opening force needed to operate this door.”

This sliding door system has already been used successfully in the newly opened Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool. The recirculating ball carriages move smoothly along an aluminium track to give low resistance so that the doors can be moved easily by both staff and patients.
