Today, one of the most common doors that are found in homes and offices is a sliding door. A sliding door which is also known as patio door is typically made up of a two or more panel fixture that is considered as a single unit. A sliding door is a type of door which can be opened through a horizontal slide, whereby the door is either mounted on or suspended from a sliding track. A sliding door provides a form of enclosure as well as access between two spaces / rooms.
Advantages of sliding doors
Firstly, sliding doors especially those that are made with glass panels allow the entry of natural light in your room/ space. Furthermore, as sliding door does not require additional space to swing open or close, it is a type of door which is space efficient. As such, sliding doors are commonly chosen for internal (home/ offices) doors.
Besides, just like a window glass panel, a glass sliding door can be made from a variety of glass types which include normal glass, tempered glass, wire mesh glass, tinted glass and patterned glass. Those glasses are usually combined with the use of metal frame. In fact, typical sliding doors will be built together with a bottom track which is used to facilitate the movement of the sliding door panels. Sliding doors which use ball bearings as their rollers help to reduce friction between the sliding door and track. Also, a sliding door usually include a one way interlocking mechanism between panels which allow the doors to have complete coverage without any gaps.
