Niagara Sliding Track System has recently been tested for weight, force and endurance.
The Niagara Sliding Track System outperformed recent lab tests by exceeding 12,000 cycles with 250 kilograms. Observation at the end of test showed little evidence of wear and it just wanted to keep sliding!
Force Test Results
Force testing results are a helpful reference in light of the Access and Mobility Code (AS1428.1-2009 page 64) which states a maximum of 20 newtons force is required.
The table below shows results from the force testing on a range of door weights. Example 19.5 newtons required to operate 100 kg door on the Niagara Sliding Track
