What is a sliding door?

A sliding door moves horizontally along a track, opening and closing by sliding rather than swinging on hinges. This type of door is widely utilised for its space-saving attributes and aesthetic appeal. Often crafted with expansive glass panels, sliding doors are a popular choice for both interior and exterior applications, promoting open views and the influx of natural light. Their design proves advantageous in settings where space is limited or a contemporary aesthetic is desired.

Why choose a sliding door?

Automatic sliding door systems are indispensable for commercial and industrial businesses due to their seamless, hands-free operation that accommodates high traffic. Enhancing accessibility, they effortlessly cater to customers and facilitate smooth traffic flow. Their space-efficient design optimises floor space, crucial in both settings. Energy-efficient features contribute to sustainability, and the modern aesthetic adds sophistication. With minimal maintenance required, automatic sliding doors are a practical and reliable investment for businesses looking for efficiency, aesthetics, and customer satisfaction.
