DORMA, global partner for premium access solutions and services, has launched its new ST FLEX Green automatic sliding door system which combines outstanding thermal insulation and a slender profile to meet the needs of the user and client, as well as the latest building and environmental standards.

Building Regulations such as Part L, and rising energy costs have led to a demand for more economically and ecologically viable buildings. With building fabric crucial to a structure’s energy efficiency – and doors a vital component to the fabric – the importance of door systems can never be underestimated.

With the launch of ST FLEX Green, DORMA has created an energy-saving automatic sliding door system achieving U-values of between 1.4 and 1.8W/m2K whilst maintaining slender glazing profiles.

The ST FLEX Green has also been designed to suit with the appearance of DORMA’s standard ST FLEX and ST SECURE systems. This enables designers to incorporate sliding doors with varying functions within a building whilst maintaining a uniform aesthetic.

Utilising DORMA’s proven operator technology, the system is suitable for door weights of up to 2 x 160kg. In addition, passage widths of up to 3000mm may easily be realised.

As DORMA’s latest addition to its expansive product offering, the ST FLEX Green will further reinforce the company’s position as the designer’s first choice for access solutions which meet the sustainability, performance and aesthetic requirements demanded by industry best practices of contemporary construction.
