Industrial Sliding Doors

mental health sliding door BWH 3 Horizontal sliding doors can be either single slide or center parting. The door panels can be a rigid single piece type or they can fold, therby saving storage or slide room. Horizontally sliding doors do not require counterweights or springs, and center parting automatic doors can operate at twice the speed of single sliding doors. Rigid panel straight horizontally sliding doors take side room at least equal to the panel width, which is a space disadvantage. The use of horizontally sliding doors that fold overcomes this problem. These types of doors require minimal side room for stacking the door leaves. Sliding doors -- interior or exterior mounted to meet your security requirements, engineering specifications and building design.

 It is necessary to expand on horizontal sliding, vertically sliding, and swinging doors, and give some sub-classifications of each type to show the range of industrial doors available. As pointed out, horizontally sliding doors can be either single slide (the door sliding to one side only) or center parting (the door sliding to each side of the opening). Telescoping doors cut down the amoung of side room required, and can be single slide or center parting, with more than two panels, if needed. However, the more panels that telescope, the more complicated the hardware arrangement. Sliding doors can also angle around a corner and store on a right angle wall. Sliding doors normally are top-hung with a load bearing wall carrying the weight of the door. They can also be bottom-roller supported, with the weight carried on a floor track, with the top of the door guided.
