Sliding doors, Room dividers, Office walling…

They are often used as glass interior doors to separate two rooms within the home and in this situation the interior glass doors will be designed to provide the best and most appropriate application for this particular use.

Our glass doors have become increasingly popular with commercial projects as well as residential settings and have even been used as office walls!
No more bulky frames
In the past patio doors would always come with frames which were often bulky, large and rather unappealing. Also these frames often impaired the view of the outside but with our innovative frameless glass sliding doors there is no frame to worry about! Your view will certainly not be obscured and you will have a 100% clear view. We incorporate a bi-folding mechanism with all our frameless glass doors and every bifolding sliding door is custom built to match the customers’ exact needs.

How do folding glass doors work?
There are numerous key factors which work together to make our folding glass doors work so well. Each individual door uses a highly efficient sliding and folding panel mechanism and each panel is safely secured in its place by thermally broken rail systems.
1) To open the frameless folding glass doors you need to simply open the access panel so it rests at a 45° angle to the rest of the system and to one side.
2) You then need to slide the next panel along towards the access door opening. Once this is done you then fold, once again at a 45° angle
3) Simply repeat this process for each individual panel until all the panels are resting on one side. The entire process will not take more than two minutes.
