Operating systems for your Timber Sliding Doors.
Sliding Door Systems
We use various hardware systems for our sliding doors.
Top Hung systems allow for large panels and are great for high traffic areas. Each door is carried from the top of the frame. Four wheel rollers are positioned at each top corner of the moving panels. This allows for smooth operation. Top hung door units require the head of the frame to be fixed to a supporting lintel or beam above the door unit.
Bottom Roller doors are ideal for more standard size doors, or where top hung is not achievable due to the design of the home or building. We can manufacture very large doors that are bottom roller, we simply up-spec the hardware to suit.
Lift & Slide doors are European designed. As the name suggests, a lever is turned 180 degrees to lift the door off the sill to open, the door then slides open. Once the door is closed, the lever is then turned back 180 degrees to lock, the door sits directly on the sill in the locked position which seals extremely well. Lift & slide doors allow for extremely efficient glass due to their thickness of 68mm (inside to outside).
All of our systems are extremely high quality. We can help you choose the right system for your home.
