CRL-U.S. Aluminum Expands its Office Partitions Line with 487 Series Integrated Slider

New Slider Combines a Contemporary Profile with Added Functionality for More Dynamic Office Space Designs

LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 24, 2015 - CRL-U.S. Aluminum's line of office partition systems gives architects, interior designers, and glazing contractors the ability to design and build customized office spaces that combine utility with modern aesthetics. To continue with this tradition, the company is proud to introduce the 487 Series Integrated Slider, the latest addition to the 487 Series Office Partition family. The new slider will debut at GlassBuild America, September 16-18 in Atlanta.

The 487 Series Integrated Slider is unique in that it comes equipped with an integrated top-hung sliding system that saves valuable floor space compared to conventional pivoting systems. In addition, fully framed doors enhance durability and soundproofing capabilities. A 1" face trim benefits natural light transmission while simultaneously providing expansive visuals due to minimal hardware.

The new 487 Series Integrated Slider can accommodate wood, aluminum-framed, and all-glass doors weighing up to 200 lb. You can also select single or bi-parting doors, with or without a transom. Options include custom finishes and a "softbrake" braking system for all-glass doors that guards against the sudden impact caused by a runaway sliding door. The 487 Series Integrated Slider qualifies for LEED credit because it amplifies natural light diffusion, which in turn reduces the energy costs associated with artificial lighting.

"As the design and purpose of office environments continues to evolve, C.R. Laurence remains committed to engineering and manufacturing advanced glass office solutions that fuse modern aesthetics with function and durability," said John O'Brien, Brand Manager of Interior Office Partitions at C.R. Laurence. "Our new 487 Series Integrated Slider exemplifies our efforts towards developing office partition systems that reflect today's requirements."

CRL provides a complete range of office partition systems that can be customized for office fronts, conference rooms, lobbies, waiting rooms, and more. To learn more about the suite of CRL office partition solutions, visit
