Sliding Doors are Taking Over
Why Sliding Doors?
Sliding doors are unique when compared to most other forms of entry on the market, given one main feature: they slide. Obvious, we know, but it’s an important distinction to make, since that one aspect brings a wide range of advantages.
First, a sliding door has a tiny footprint when compared to most other door options. Any entryway that swings out or folds to the side has a functional footprint that is much larger than the door itself, as it usually takes up its full length on two axes. A sliding door does not have that limitation, as instead of swinging open, it instead slides over the wall, over itself, or into a concealed pocket. This greatly reduces its footprint and keeps the surrounding area clear of any “door swing”.
Second, a sliding door offers a few additional options and features over a traditional hinge or pivot door. Sliding doors can be large or small, and the general installation remains the same, whereas particularly large doors of other varieties can require special hardware or reinforcement of the door jam. Sliding doors are also easy to adapt to nearly any setting, with just a few slight modifications. Do you want a sliding door that can lock and secure a room? That can be done with ease. Are you looking for a spectacular door that can open up into a large room in a unique way, like this sliding door as Laserfiche that Sing Core made possible? With a traditional swing door that would be difficult, but with sliding doors, it becomes a beautiful centerpiece that people will talk about for years to come.
And Third, sliding doors are the modern pick. Simply put, swing doors are out and sliding doors are in. If you’re looking for a way to bring some extra flair to a modern build, a sliding door is a great way to do it. They look great, function easily, and fit the streamlined and sleek concept that is taking over so many design trends. Don’t get us wrong, hinge and pivot doors are still fantastic options, and they have their uses, but the modern architect is moving toward sliding doors as the go-to option.
