Cutting and shaping of glass tiles, composed on a supporting glass base, machining is possible thanks to a cooking cycle that allows the weave to melt at the base.
- Galvanised net
Network with furrowed and etched wire to improve adhesion of the plaster.
- Horizontal reinforcing bars
Supports of a counterframe (plaster version) that are attached to the plaster door net which gives the counterframe higher strength and stiffness and counteract the tensions generated by the plaster maturation. They are designed in such a way that gaps of thickness do not remain in the plaster distribution.

Sheet with ashlar processing which increases rigidity and strength of the counterframe.
- Internal pocket
Sliding seat of the door. To allow the sliding, the thickness of the door must be less than the sliding seat of 1/2".
Wooden frame of the door finish. It covers the edges of the counterframes, the upper crosspiece and the stop jamb.
- Lacquered (wooden doors)
Boards generally in MDF (wooden pulp better than chipboard) processed to make them smooth to the touch and then painted with a glossy or matt lacquer.
- Laminate (wooden doors)
Coating created with a molded plastic foil recalling the wood in appearance. The underlying structure is usually made of chipboard.
Particular processing to be carried out on a wooden door panel.
- Motorised unit
Accessory for interiors and exteriors that allows the automatic opening and closing of the door.
- Max door weight
Maximum weight bearable by the sliding carriages. For ECLISSE, The standard load capacity is 220 lbs, on request reaches up to 330 lbs (interior solutions). In the case of blinds or railings, it is 330 lbs.
Type of support for all glass door. It is a fixing system that is applied directly on the glass. Suitable for door panels in glass, weight up to 220 lbs, thickness 3/8".
Non-standard measures of counterframes.
Wood material made with synthetic resins and with thin veneers.
- Overboarding plaster-holding mesh
Tightly knit knurled net (2"x1") situated halfway between the plate and the wire of the plaster that allows the plaster to cling better. The plaster-holding mesh Eclisse is overboarding to avoid the application of additional nets.
- Opening direction
Direction that identifies from which side the door is concealed in the wall (right or left).
- Protruding close (plaster mesh)
That comes out and exceeds the boundary of the chest of the plaster counterframe. Thus it avoids the formation of cracks and splittings due to the connection between two completely different materials (sheet and perforated).
- Polystyrene joint
Component on the upper crosspiece of the subframe for plaster which helps to absorb possible structural movements.
It is one layer of protective coating of the walls. It, besides the protective function, assumes sometimes an aesthetic function.
- Rallenty Soft
Accessory for interiors. It allows the door to slow down the travel of the door panel in closing until it closes again softly.
- Snap-together assembly
Ability to mount the subframe directly on site with the desired thickness (3-1/2" and 5-1/2" finished wall thickness).
- Slide runners
Elements that allow the door panel to slide inside the track. The sliding carriages with ball bearings ensure lasting, smooth and silent sliding. They may have capacity of 220 lbs or 330 lbs.
- Self-centring guide
Closing system which for its characteristics allows the centering of the lock block with the abutment of the lock.
Sheet metal profile which serves to maintain properly spaced horizontal door jamb.
- Self-centring door guide
plastic element which serves to slide the door perpendicularly to the track. The door guide slides on the milling that is standard on the retractable sliding doors. It is applied directly to the counterframe and without drilling the floor, allowing you to center the guide in a few moments, avoiding unnecessary loss of time in the measurements and in the floor perforations.
- Stud wall installation kit
Unassembled version of a counterframe. Allows the optimization of loads thanks to limited dimensions corresponding to 5-1/2" x 91" x 4-3/8". It also allows the choice of the thickness in the construction site to use based on the door chosen.

Size (width and height) specified in the catalogue.
- Stop jamb
Vertical element of the counterframe that facilitates the implementation of the jambs.
- Secutity profile

The counterframe studied for extra-large apertures which allows the insertion of a concealed sliding system even in the presence of a light passage which can reach up to 72" in width and 120" in height.
- Track (fully extractable)
Seat on which the carriages run allowing the movement of the door. The ability to extract the binary allows you to replace all wearing parts (binary, accessories, door stopper, etc.) and the application of accessories at a later date.
- Telescopic synchronisation system
Accessory that allows the simultaneous movement of the two doors that slide in the same direction.
Wood variety. It can be veneered or solid (massive).
