CS RakingHead Cavity Slider

The CS RakingHead uses the weight of the door combined with the force of gravity to self-close. Soft close technology ensures that the door that closes behind one on its own — smoothly and quietly, without the cost of a fully automated door.

Key Features
  • Patented cavity frame is fully tested and guaranteed. It is engineered from high quality heavy duty extruded aluminium
  • Door and carriages can be removed without removing wall linings
  • The soft close mechanism is hidden from sight, yet remains fully serviceable
  • Available in standard and non-standard sizes up to 1200mm wide
  • Gentle braking and closing of door helps prevent slamming and injury
  • Fits into a standard thickness wall (90 x 45mm framing)
  • Supplied fully assembled for on-site installation
  • No visible floor guides

  • NoClosingJamb

Maximum size 3000mm high x 1200mm wide.
