The Levolan 120 shone in assessment criteria such as benefits, design, design quality, degree of innovation, usability, functionality, accessibility, safety and durability. With its discreet appearance, and the compact dimensions of the total sliding fitting system, it can be integrated with any architecture and installation situation. Thanks to the compact, modular design, it is no larger, yet carries twice the load of its ‘little brother’, the Levolan 60, and so is an optimal solution for heavy door leaves. All-glass or wood sliding doors with door leaf weights of up to 120 kilograms can easily be elegantly designed, and effortlessly moved.
The whole fitting technology of the Levolan 120 is integrated into the track which is only 50 millimetres high. The Levolan 120 SoftStop draw-in damping, which also can be integrated into the track, provides safety and comfort. The sliding door leaves are guided gently and safely into the end position. There is virtually no possibility of anything hitting the frame, or any risk of getting fingers trapped. Specially designed carrier rollers ensure an excellent load distribution and smooth running characteristics. Derailing protection is automatically activated when the height of the door leaf is adjusted, thus providing additional safety, almost by itself. The clamping roller carriage of the Levolan 120 is designed for glass thicknesses of 10 to 12.76 millimetres. This enables standard glass thickness for laminated safety glass (LSG) to be integrated easily. The Levolan Smart fix installation system makes installation fast and easy.
