Commercial Screening System

Shopline is an economical aluminium screening system for commercial applications. With one of the most comprehensive range of profiles available, Smart’s Shopline is an established and proven screening system.The system is designed to comply with the demands of architects, local authorities and property managers for commercial projects around the UK. Shopline doors are designed to integrate with the Shopline screen, providing an ideal solution for high traffic commercial entrances, such as schools and hospitals.

Shopline is a modular screening solution, combining the benefits of off-site manufacture with on-site assembly. Screen modules are constructed offsite from square cut profiles joined using self tapping screws. These modules can then be rapidly assembled onsite, intuitively clipping together the mullions to form one continuous screen.

This rapid assembly method offers an economical solution for low rise screening with slim sightlines of 50mm. Designed for the UK climate, all fixings on the screen are manufactured from corrosion resistant material to provide protection from both atmospheric and electrolytic degradation. The system offers drainage trays, ensuring the screens performance in all weathers.

Once assembled the modules are easy to glaze with options for single or double glazed to 28mm. The units are ‘shuffle glazed’ into the screen. Using a double glazed unit the system can achieve a good U Value of 2.4W/m2k, providing good performance and exceeding building regulations for display windows.

For details on thermal performance contact the Smart’s Technical Department.

All ‘dynamic’ glazing gaskets supplied by Smarts are of EPDM quality and compatible with Pilkington Active sealed units. These are recognised to conform to the highest industry quality and performance standards, and are the only gaskets used by Smarts when testing to BSI certified standards.

Shopline profile can be supplied Polyester power coated which is ideally suited to demands of commercial applications. Painted to BS 6496 including Qualicoat standards, Shopline profiles are typically painted to 60 microns which complies with the requirements necessary to achieve a 25 year guarantee and ensures the quality and longevity of the Shopline screen system.

The Shopline screening suite integrates a range of commercial entrance doors. Exceedingly versatile in application and scope, the Shopline system includes solutions for single and double commercial doors. Swing doors with concealed overhead closers, rebated doors and automated swing/sliding doors can all be manufactured with

Shopline swing doors utilise the Adams Rite ARC-51 Overhead transom concealed door closer in a range of strengths for doors up to 1100mm width and 2500mm in height.

A range of floor/threshold pivots is available for use with the overhead closer for door weights up to 110kgs.When wider doors are required, contact Smart’s Technical Department for guidance.

Rebated doors are face mounted on flag hinges with the option of a face mounted door closer.The system benefits from an increased opening angle of 180 degrees and is ideal for more exposed locations with the extra weather protection offered by the additional rebate.

For main commercial entrance doors Shopline is designed to provide automated swing opening using electrical sensors and actuators to operate swinging, sliding, and telescopic doors. Shopline offers profiles with a range of suited reinforced sections developed to securely mount a range of door automated actuators from different hardware suppliers, including Besam.

The doors are specifically developed for heavy duty applications such as schools and hospitals. Shopline doors are easy to manufacture, using mechanical corner brackets instead of traditionally welded corners. The mechanical fixing is not affected by HAZ degradation experienced on welded joints.This method of fabrication creates an exceptionally strong and durable door with a quality and consistency of joint not possible with welded construction.
