Tight-sealing sliding doors improve energy savings for Besam customers /Global/Sustainability/photos/DA-Amsterdam-DSC_1007-524x224.jpg Besam has launched greener configurations for their existing sliding door profile packages. This door automatics solution help create a more sustainable door opening solution. The sliding door TightSeal from Besam features extra brushes and rubber bumpers for a more energy-saving seal and the configuration is available for existing as well as new sliding door systems. Benefits include less air leakage and water infiltration, which is especially optimal during non-business hours but also beneficial whenever the door is closed during opening hours. Studies show that reducing air leakage can lead to energy savings of up to 60 percent compared to standard sliding door systems. Depending on the configuration, the very attractive payback time for the customer is between 12 and 24 months. When fitted to the Besam Frame and Slim Thermo, these automatic door systems meet BS EN 12207 (Air Permeability) Class 1 standards for thermal efficiency, an official European regulation that will come in to force in 2013.
