Slim profile sliding door systems

ASSA ABLOY (previously Besam) SL500 Slim sliding door systems for appealing entrances

The ASSA ABLOY (previously Besam) SL500 S automatic sliding door system gives an aesthetically pleasing, yet highly functional entrance. Framed all round with a slimline aluminum profile, it reduces both the weight and footprint of door leaves and enhances the aesthetic appeal of any facility.

Supplied as either a bi-parting or single sliding door system, the ASSA ABLOY SL500 S Slim frame door system comes complete with door leaf, safety devices, access control options and where required, side screens and overlights. It is available for both beam and wall mounting. Slim aluminum profiles are clear anodized and glazed with 8mm laminated glass as standard.

ASSA ABLOY SL500 SE Slim Thermo is a sustainable variation, utilising thermally broken glazing to minimize thermal losses though the glazed door leaf.

Narrow passage ways and escape routes

Where side space is limited a telescopic arrangement is the natural choice. It is ideal for narrow passageways, as it maximizes the clear opening width.

The ASSA ABLOY SL500 S Slim frame can reduce the amount of energy needed to heat or cool a building, resulting in lower costs and a smaller carbon footprint for customers. It can be fitted with optional thermo glass, thermally broken profiles and very tightly fitting brushes. Additional sensors offer finely-tuned opening and closing times to further enhance energy-saving capabilities, whilst also ensuring a high-level of entrance security.


Most Slim profile door systems can be either beam or wall mounted, as bi-parting or single sliding doors.
