EKU-PORTA 100 HMT "Best of the Best"

At the interzum, the world's biggest trade fair for suppliers to the furniture industry and interior finishing, the organiser (Kölnmesse) and red dot projects presented awards to innovative companies whose products are setting new industrial standards. EKU won over the international jury of experts with the EKU-PORTA 100 HMT, which was presented with the interzum award "Best of the Best". This award is recognition of outstanding design achievements whose style and functionality set new standards in the industry. Just nine products achieved the coveted title of "Best of the Best" in 2013.

EKU-PORTA 100 HMT (Holz/Minimal/Tasche = Wood/Minimal/Pocket) is the only minimal and flush-fitted ceiling sliding door system for pocket applications that makes it possible for the fittings and the door leaf to be installed and removed after completion of the building work. Flexible installation and removal is possible due to a specially developed combination of track cut-out and adjustable pivot point. It allows the door to be swivelled out and the running gear components to be operated without interfering with the building structure. Installation in the pocket allows the sliding door to disappear into the wall, which saves space, and puts no restrictions on the wall design at either side of the opening.
