CRL Introduces Innovative DRS 1202 Series Interior Glass Door System
With no top or bottom rail required, the DRS 1202 Series Interior Glass Door System delivers a distinct all-glass aesthetic. To accomplish this, C.R. Laurence engineers designed an innovative in-rail hydraulic closing mechanism that's concealed within the slim 2” vertical pivot tube, eliminating the need for large closers in the floor. The DRS 1202 System's round vertical edge rail prevents finger pinch when opening and closing doors. Each installer-friendly door is custom fabricated to your specifications, and offers easy plumb and centering adjustments.
