Straight Sliding Doors
If space is limited then straight sliding door hardware is for you, rather than swinging open the door the straight sliding door glides effortlessly from one side to the other without needing any additional space to swing out into to open. This saves valuable space, allowing you to open doors despite the space restrictions.
This system is typically used for the following;
– Fitted wardrobes
– Door ways
– Storage solutions
– Retail departments
End and Central Folding System
Unlike the straight door system, the end fold system bends at certain points allowing you to open the door as little or as much as you want, whilst giving a unique look to an otherwise ordinary opening.
Due to the unique design of the end folding system, it is often used for;
– Doors leading out to the garden/patio area
– Conservatory or garden room
– To divide an open plan room
