Cover Story - Hi-finity sliding doors guarantee an infinite view with ultimate performances

The Hi-finity patio door is the epitome of modern design, combining the ultimate in contemporary aesthetics with outstanding performance. This state-of-the-art structurally glazed door offers the possibility of floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall glass, an ergonomically designed handle and a concealed locking system. For the discerning homeowner or architect who wants the very latest in contemporary design and ultimate performance, the Hi-finity door sets a new benchmark of excellence for homes and offices in South Africa.


Large fixed glass panes

The ultra-slim design of the Hi-finity sliding door creates large transparent surfaces, with a light, sleek and elegant appearance. This fully transparent and accessible sliding door, extending from floor to ceiling and reaching across the entire length of the façade, seamlessly connects the house’s interior with the outside.

The opening corner solution of Hi-finity creates an even greater sense of openness and transparency. Despite

the minimal visual side-lines, the system’s high strength allows Hi-finity to carry the weight of a large fixed glass pane up to 1200kg, a manual vent up to 300kg and motorized vents up to 750kg. This in combination with the high energy performance and the minimalistic look makes this product the best solution for low-energy contemporary architecture!

Designed not to be seen

Beautiful as it is, the Hi-finity door is designed to be looked through, not to be looked at. The outer frame can be built into the structure of the building, making the dream of floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall glass a reality. The interlock between door panels is incredibly narrow, measuring only 35mm wide, and the frame and spacer bars between the panes of glass are both black, helping the door to frame your view in a most unobtrusive way.

Full comfort

A dedicated and fully concealed motor ensures that the Hi-finity sliding door opens and closes automatically, using a switch or by connecting the motor to your home automation system. This high-performance motor, with a capacity up to 750kg, guarantees optimum convenience during use and is a safe and reliable solution.

High energy performance

The large glass surfaces of Hi-finity give a great feeling of comfort by offering the thermal efficient solutions of double and triple glazing. With Uf values of less than 1.0 W/m²K, these glass panels are perfectly suited for low energy houses. Consequently, Hi-finity has been awarded the energy-saving Minergie quality label.

Open corner solution

A creative corner solution makes it possible to open up spaces without any fixed corner element. When the sliding door is open, the corner is entirely free, offering a unique solution for application in residential and public places where access to the exterior adds value, e.g. restaurants and club houses.

Security

The concept of the locking mechanism gives the door a high level of security. In combination with layered glass, Hi-finity is burglary resistant, class RC2. The electric locking and unlocking is realised by a robust bolt and hook, operated by a simple push on the button or the remote control.

Minimalistic design

By integrating the aluminium profiles into the walls, the glass surfaces are extended from floor to ceiling, creating the ultimate minimalistic appearance, merging indoor and outdoor into one. An extra design aspect is given by the design handle that has a slim, elegant and streamlined appearance.
