Man Door Sliding Door Trends
Increasingly, the use of man doors, smaller 3’0 x 7’0 or similar doors built within a massive sliding door are becoming increasingly prevalent in large interior sliding doors. Man doors allows for one opening to be used for three different uses:
- Entrance and exit of personnel while in a privacy configuration
- Reconfiguration of the space for an open concept or large space for special use cases / events
- Movement of larger equipment or groups of people between spaces
The use of movable walls is also finding increasing use in office space design where the tenants desire the capability of an open combined use space that can be reconfigured in to smaller meeting spaces when the need arrises.
SingCore is particularly adept in large movable wall uses because our material is extremely light for it’s size, making it easy to install, easy to operate, and cheaper to install based on hardware costs. Our patented core material also boosts insulating foam material which provide excellent noise suppression and well as thermal properties.
