Aluminium Pocket Door

Are you stuck trying to choose between a sliding and bi-folding door? Take a look at this fantastic project where the homeowners found the perfect option when wanting the ease of a sliding doors whilst still being able to open up their opening completely.

The main benefit of a sliding door is the thin sightlines whilst the bi-folding door offers the ability to completely collapse giving a fuller opening. The alternative to this is a aluminium pocket door giving a wider opening than a bifold with all the advantages of sliding door. Simpler operation, thinner sightlines and no obstructing leaf's when open, this really is the best of both worlds.

Our pocket doors enable each sliding panel to neatly tuck away into a wall opening that is hidden behind plasterboard. When in the closed position to only visible elements are the mullions and the handle bar, achieving an almost invisible effect. If you want the ability to completely open up your space to the outside world this really is the best choice.

To achieve this spec we utilised our very own Knight Line door in RAL 7016. We also worked closely with the clients builder to create a flush floor threshold. Working with the clients builder we where able to create a completely flush threshold with the track entirely submerged into the floor. The clients have installed a row of the internal floor tiles on the outside of the track which goes one step further to make the outside and inside floors feel as one.

When closed the doors have a larger central mullion which houses the locking mechanism. For the rest of the glass panels a slim mullion is used, achieving a central mullion of less than 20mm. This style of doors uses structural glass technology within the glass panes enabling us to manufacture a much slimmer sightline than has ever been possible. The results in more light and better views of the garden a win all round.
