Sliding doors are a real find for rooms limited by small sizes. The unique design makes it possible to save space, and the stylish design gives the interior elegance and accentuated charm.
Such models are convenient for zoning a room. They can divide it into separate areas, being closed and performing the role of a partition, or unite it in case of opening the valves. This is very convenient, for example, for zoning the kitchen-living room. To install these slabs, it is necessary to have a place along the wall where they will disperse.
Single slab sliding door, three-slab sliding door, double-slab sliding door
The sliding door can be a single slab. The sash, in this case, is displaced along the wall to one or both sides or deep into the wall (similar to a train compartment). The design can be double-leaf. In turn, one leaf can be deaf or mobile. The flaps, in this case, move independently of each other in different directions. There may be designs of more than two canvases. There are many possible options. These are already multi-leaf partitions.
Sliding entrance doors
In addition, sliding doors are an economical option for decorating the entrance to the premise. An electric drive opens the automatic door at the sensor’s signal, infrared sensors, radars, and contact mats.
To date, some radars can determine the speed and direction of a person using 2 video cameras. This eliminates the possibility of false slab operation when a person moves parallel to the door plane while falling into the sensor coverage area. A relay or button can also actuate the door. The slabs are equipped with a photocell that reacts to the presence of an object in the space between the wings. It keeps them open while the thing is in the sensor’s coverage area. The electric drive that opens and closes the leaves is programmed with a particular program that considers the rotation of the motor, the speed of opening and closing, holding open, and lock functions.
Sliding corner doors; sliding semi-circular doors
Sliding corner doors deserve special attention. The drive for these constructions is equipped with a unique gearbox that allows the drive belt to change orientation from horizontal to vertical. The sash, in this case, moves with a turn. The photocell will not work in this design since there is no single plane of movement.
Semi-circular sliding doors can have a slab arc angle up to 180°C.
Whatever type of sliding doors you choose, they will become a worthy addition and stylish decoration of your interior. They will save the room’s space and fill it with unique comfort and sophistication. Pay only attention to the fact that such doors have insufficient sound insulation.
