New Product: Planet Sliding Door Drop Seal

by Kate Donkin on 01/03/2021

P C Henderson has recently partnered up with drop seal manufacturer, Planet, to introduce an acoustic drop seal for sliding doors into its range of products.

The innovative seal solution, designed specifically for sliding doors, offers a range of benefits including soundproofing (up to 44dB), light reduction, prevention against unpleasant smells and draught insulation.

Suitable for wooden and metal doors, the product is ideal for a wide range of applications where door sealing would be of benefit - such as offices, music rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, nurseries and room dividers.

Andrew Royle, Sales and Marketing Director at P C Henderson commented “As more people are working from home during the COVID-19 restrictions, there is a need for quieter atmospheres as people try to juggle family life and work commitments. Our new Planet Drop Seal is ideal for this type of application due to its soundproofing properties – as well as numerous other applications around the home and workplace”.

Unlike other sliding door seals, Planet Drop Seal is automatically deployed upon door closure and held firmly in the closed position – eliminating the need for a magnet to hold the door in place. Designed using state of the art technology, the accessory is compatible with soft close sliding door systems due to the minimal force required to activate the seal.

“Our aim is to be able to offer customers the full sliding door hardware solution. As the use of sliding doors continues to evolve we must adapt our range to meet the market requirements. The Planet Drop Seal is a great example of this”, continued Andrew.

The accessory can be used with a number of P C Henderson’s sliding door systems including the company's popular Soltaire and Husky Sliding systems. Available in a number of lengths to cater for doors between 675mm and 1675mm wide, the seal is ideal for both single and biparting sliding doors.

Recently celebrating 100 years in business, this is the first of many products P C Henderson is due to launch in 2021 as it enters its second century in business. With over 60 products, P C Henderson’s range of sliding door hardware can cater for doors weighing up to an impressive 8000kg.
