Aluminum sliding doors are a wonderful enhancement, transforming any office space. Although aluminum sliding doors are generally chosen for their style and aesthetic appeal, there are several practical advantages. Here are some things to consider if you are thinking about implementing aluminum sliding doors.
Sliding doors, except for barn style, possess large panes of glass between the frames of the door. Like windows, aluminum sliding doors increase the amount of natural light entering your office space. This creates a brighter and more welcoming environment, even if you decide to close the panel for some privacy and time to focus.
Traditional swinging doors have hinges requiring clearance space so the door itself can swing open and shut. However, sliding doors operate by gliding along the track to its stopping point. This allows the user to have more room to enhance the space or embrace the new openness. Even if the room(s) acquiring the sliding door(s) is smaller, the option creates an illusion of a bigger and airier space.
Aluminum sliding doors allow for easier traffic flow from either office to office or the conference room to the waiting area. This is also an easier option for businesses considering handicap accessibility options for their clients.
Frameworks offers two types of aluminum sliding doors: the Slim Slider and the SlimLine Slider series. Our Slim Slider series provides privacy and security while maintaining a sleek, contemporary look contributing daylight to the space. The door and frame opening consists of a top-hung sliding door track and sidelite capable of spanning the full office front. Corner conditions can be added to use the framing system along adjacent walls. The doors glide smoothly and quietly, maintaining the overall focus of the office and not distracting others.
Our SlimLine series is an office front system with minimal profiles, providing maximum office space. The system is ideal to fit prefab wall panels or can be mounted to setting channels for a demountable option. This design has been implemented in offices, schools, and laboratories, as it can be customized to fit your needs with various corner posts and intermediate mullions.
Since 1996, Frameworks Manufacturing has been developing high-quality, prefinished aluminum frames, sidelites, borrowed lites, and doors for interior and commercial applications.
