THE SWING AND SLIDE SYSTEM HALVES THE DOOR SPACE REQUIREMENTS
ERGON® Living is a swing-and-slide hardware system that has revolutionised door closure systems, expanding construction possibilities of door manufacturers and designers, and interior design solutions for architects and surveyors.
Thanks to the swing and slide system, doors fitted with ERGON® Living occupy 50% less space when opened and closed, for a significant space gain. The simultaneous swinging and sliding movement of the door occupies half the space of a standard single or double hinged door and does not call for any building work or additional costs, such as with pocket sliding doors. The problem of obstruction between adjacent doors, even in tight spaces, is eliminated whilst the potential for the living and furnishing spaces is increased. ERGON® Living is especially suited to public spaces tied to issues of emergency exits and wheelchair access.
To fit doors with the ERGON® Living system, three different types of hardware kits are available: ERGON® Living S40, ERGON® Living T.E. and ERGON® Living T.E. Slim. Patented and tested for 100,000 opening and closing cycles, the systems can be applied to different types of doors (made of hollow-core and solid wood, metal, plastic, with glass inserts, etc.), with different clearance widths from 44 cm to 130 cm, heights up to 3 metres and weighing up to 70 kg.
With ERGON® Living, you can also create double facing swing and slide doors opening in opposite directions or bi-fold doors opening in the same direction, taking advantage of the swing and slide opening system on very wide clearances.
On double doors fitted with the ERGON® Living system, it is also possible to install the Push & Go EVO magnetic opening system. Winner of the “Archiproducts Design Awards” (2017 edition, Components and Materials category), awarded for the quality, ease-of-use and technical functionalities, with Push & Go EVO the inner door is unblocked by simply pushing a button and closed by moving the door back into position.
The ERGON® Living and Push & Go EVO systems are products by Celegon S.r.l, a leading Italian company in the development, industrialisation and manufacture of special hardware for doors and furniture.
