New HS Portal from Coastal Group provides adjustable Lift & Slide system

12th January 2017


A complete Lift and Slide system - the HS Portal - designed for a range of sliding door configurations has been launched by window and door hardware specialists Coastal Group.

The HS Portal from Coastal provides multiple features and benefits including:

  • New concealed hook lock system which is easier and safer to use, and includes an additional Night Vent feature
  • Improved weather sealing with two points of sealing on the closing styles and head
  • Soft close and open option providing controlled opening and closing which prevents injury from the doors and damage to the doors and frame

Further options from the new system include the opportunity to upgrade it to Coastal’s Hollodeen Threshold – the highly innovative, unbreakable and lifelong threshold enabling the trade to say goodbye to the traditional problems of rotting timber cills. Hollodeen Thresholds

With components from the world leaders in lift and slide doors, the new HS Portal from Coastal is available in seven different scheme configurations - from 1 sliding door and fixed outer door through to a 4 sliding doors and 2 fixed outer door system.

HS Portal Lift & Slide system configurations The lift and slide action is activated by the door handle lowering the sliding leaf a few millimetres into the closed position, compressing the weather seals, and engaging the hook locks for high security and draught-proofing. An internal cylinder lock provides additional security. The door can be lowered at any point along its track to prevent it from moving whilst open. When the sash is lifted, the seals disengage from the frame allowing a smooth friction-free operation, even on large doors. This action prevents flat spots being created on the wheels, a typical flaw with bottom rolling straight sliding door systems. The new HS system is designed to reduce the machining process for weather sealing meaning it is much quicker to install. It is also simple to specify, simple to order and according to Coastal Group MD Loren Jenner, a great success with those that have specified the system.

“We first unveiled the HS Portal at W16 and there was a great deal of interest surrounding it. We’ve designed the HS Portal to offer a seamless, simple system for a wide range of sliding door configurations. With high quality components, innovative options such as our soft close/open, Hollodeen thresholds and a range of handle finishes, it’s got everything needed to fit a quality sliding door system,” said Loren.

As an added bonus full timber section information and an instruction manual on how to install components is available, plus full technical back-up is only a phone call away. For more information on the HS Portal visit our product page email [email protected] or 01726 871 726
