In recent years architects have discovered that fitting quality guidance systems for tasks such as moving glass panels pays dividends in the long run as opposed to using traditional cheap wheel or roller systems.

This trend has been borne about by the increasing size and weight of the structures to be moved. Clients are demanding smoother systems that can be operated easily by hand or simply motorised.

Hepco’s V based linear motion products serve this market exceptionally well, they can work in these environments without lubrication; have good rigidity, coupled with low friction characteristics.
