LOS ANGELES, CA — October 29, 2012 — C.R.

The CRL51 and CRL50 Series accommodate 5/16” or 3/8”
(8 to
10 mm) tempered glass panels. For simple and quick
installation, the panels do not require holes or notches
.  Both
series are top hung, with no bottom track, and offer a sleek
design, wall or ceiling mount, finger touch
control, smooth and
silent operation, and 1/4" (6 mm) height adjustment to accommodate any irregularities in
the surface at the floor.

The CRL51 Softbrake engages during the final 4” (102 mm)
of travel for a soft and quiet cl
osing motion.  The CRL50 Series offers both synchronized and telescoping features. Different
within both series can accommodate anywhere from
a single glass panel weighing up to 176 pounds (80 kg) up
to six panels spanning up to a 19’ (5.8 m) opening.
