These factors need to be balanced with design considerations, such as opting for cavity sliding doors to satisfy an architecturally minimalist approach, or selecting post-free corner sliding doors to maximise views in multiple directions.
For commercial premises, Hawkesbury® Commercial Multi-Fold Doors are a popular solution, with the ability for doors to stack internally or externally to maximise the size of an opening. The top hung style uses tyred guides in concealed channels to effortlessly stack to one side to open, while providing a weathertight seal for premises when closed.
During the design stage practical concerns for end users need to be taken into account. For example, Hawkesbury® Top Hung Commercial sliding doors enable easy rolling of heavier double-glazed units, while ProGlide UltraFlatTM High Performance Sliding Doors provide wheelchair accessibility.
