    Niagara sliding track system tested for weight, force and endurance

    Criterion Industries

    The Niagara sliding track system from Criterion Industries was recently tested for weight, force and endurance.

    Force testing results provide a useful reference for meeting the requirements of the Access and Mobility Code (AS1428.1-2009 page 64), which states that a maximum of 20 Newtons (N) force is required.

    The Niagara sliding track system outperformed recent lab tests by exceeding 12,000 cycles with a 250kg door. At the end of the test, the sliding track system showed little evidence of wear.

    Force testing on a range of door weights presented the following results for operating a door on a Niagara sliding track system: 13.1N was required to operate a 50kg door, 16.45N for a 75kg door, 19.5N for a 100kg door; 21N for a 125kg door; 22.5N for a 150kg door; 27.43N for a 180kg door; and 37.8N for a 250kg door.
