Agam Sliding Door

Agam has five designers on staff, each of them with a strong background in various fields of design. They support the project management teams, providing fully engineered solutions to customers and support for the fabrication specialists in the plant. So, it is only natural that they create new products based on the recommendations and requests they receive from our clients.

Creating the Sliding Door at Agam

The contemporary sliding door was designed as a stylish alternative to the regular swinging door. Every aspect has been designed with our client’s needs in mind. From form to function, Agam designed this product to work as great as it looks. Here are five benefits to using the Agam Sliding Door:

1. The Agam Sliding Door Maximizes Space

Whether it’s a conference room or a storage closet, every inch counts in the exhibit design industry. The sliding door allows designers to maximize space and create privacy at the same time.

2. The Agam Sliding Door is Completely Customizable

The track is made of extrusion MR1200 and the door is made of extrusion PH1070 or PH1003. Agam can cut these extrusions to any length, so the sliding door can fit any doorway. You could even replace your current swinging door. Or, if your doorway is large enough, Agam can make a double sliding door.

3. The Agam Sliding Door is Easy to Assemble

It has an upper track that attaches to the partition after the fact. Simply build the wall using only a hex key or use an existing wall, and then simply add the upper track with a clever specially designed part. The door can then be hung in place and slides using two roller brackets, which hook onto the track.

4. The Agam Sliding Door Can Give You Peace of Mind

The sliding door can be locked with a key for security. The spring-loaded lock is attached to the door and bolts into the track.

5. The Agam Sliding Door Has A Comfortable Grip

The newly designed ergonomic handle gives more space for the user’s fingers and allows the door to close tightly.

FH2001 | The Lightbox Extrusion

Agam has created a team infrastructure that we believe best serves the needs of our customers: providing superior client service as well as design in the aluminum modular system industry. Moreover, with many of our product lines, Agam continues to develop and refine our system to better suit customers’ wants and needs. The most recent being an addition to the Fabric Holding series: the FH2001. Below is the FH2001 Extrusion. The rendering to the right is just one of the ways you can use the FH2001 to enhance your displays. Continue reading to find out how Agam has used the FH2001 Extrusion.

Concept Development of FH2001 Extrusion

The FH2001 is an eight-inch (200mm) deep extrusion that can be engineered to construct custom-sized lightboxes. Here are the most important design objectives Agam followed when creating the FH2001:

  • A slim, sturdy 200mm profile
  • Double-sided Silicone Edge Graphic (SEG) frame
  • Option between hard panel and fabric diffusers
  • Multiple light configuration possibilities

Agam manufactured a small sample using existing extrusions. There are two different sized miter and inline connectors for the FH2001: small and large. The smaller version is intended for frames of 6’x6’ or less, and the larger versions are for frames of 6’x6’ or more.

Development of Agam’s Lightbox Extrusion FH2001

Because of the slim profile of FH2001, the lights can be mounted very close to the edge of the frame, creating large, fully backlit displays without dark edges. The internal channels are spaced so that the number of LED strips can be easily doubled for an extra bright display.

Testing Lightbox Extrusion FH2001 at Agam

After the drawing was officially approved, and sample lengths of the FH2001 were received, our engineers built a full sized frame to test the strength, ease of assembly, and lighting effects. They also began determining the best way to incorporate different accessory pieces, such as base plates, side legs, and corner braces. All of these would be used to provide additional strength and stability, which is necessary for large-scale frames.

The best way to attach the base plate was to manufacture a custom plate with two holes. By lining up the two outer channels on the FH2001, this would secure the base plate to the rest of the light box.

Connections are made with carriage bolts, washers, and nuts, just like any other FH frame. By adding the second hole in the base, the bolts do not interfere with the LED strips in the center channel.

Successful Creation of Agam’s Lightbox Extrusion FH2001

The extra depth of the FH2001 frame creates space between the graphic and LEDs, so the light is appropriately diffused and evenly spaced.

Both design above demonstrate various applications of the FH2001.
