Husky is the leader of the pack
Husky has long been recognised as a reliable and effective system for making objects slide. For over 20 years this product has been operating sliding doors over a variety of applications. Although Husky is an established product, it has had various upgrades over the years, taking advantage of new design and material technologies, but the original principles it was designed on have survived the test of time.
Versatile and silent, the Husky 50kg and 100kg sliding door systems are ideal for wardrobe doors and room dividers, optional fitting kits allow additional doors to be fitted allowing a maximum door width of 1250mm. Tracks are now available in galvanised steel, aluminum or anodised aluminum, coupled with nylon rollers, Husky provides a low maintenance, high quality solution. Alternative guiding systems have also become available, upgrading from nylon to a roller guiding system is guaranteed to offer an even smoother and durable operation.
There are now a range of new optional extras which compliment this system, most recently a soft stop action has been added which uses an air cylinder damper that catches the door and gently eases it into its final position. This option can also be retrofitted onto existing Husky 100 systems making it a quick and easy to install upgrade without the hassle of sourcing new systems.
Modern, fresh and minimalistic looks are on trend, and so is Husky Low Headroom. This system allows all of the hardware to be concealed to create a clean finish whilst reducing clearance between the track and door making it possible to fit longer elegant doors.
For those who don’t choose low headroom, a range of aluminium fascias are now available in three lengths to enhance the aesthetic appearance across a variety of applications.
Another great addition to the range is the Henderson Sim 100 kit for internal bi-parting doors. The system uses polypropylene coated wire, plastic pulley wheels rotating on ball bearings and a tensioning spring. All this allows the doors to quietly and smoothly move together in a synchronised motion when either opening or closing the doors.
It’s safe to say that the original Husky systems have come a long way in 20 years, but the fact that they are still being widely used across the world to this day is a compliment to the quality and design of P C Henderson, who always has and always will be a shining example of British engineering and manufacturing.
