Moving smoothly over rails in the floor, Fleming’s doors are positively guided by top rollers that travel in overhead guides. Slide doors – either inside or outside mounted – stack when open in pockets, cantilevered guides or at the jambs. Special features such as personnel and truck doors, fuselage apertures, sash, glazing units, translucent panels, louvers, etc. can be provided.

For group operated doors, interleaf connection of the drive system to the idler leaves utilize the Linear or Wrap-Around able systems. For smaller door systems, the use of the pick-up,“Unit-Drive” is employed
