Sliding doors have one or more panels opening on either a sliding track or hanging rollers. They are space saving and help open up a room.
What are Sliding Doors?
Sliding doors consist of one or more door panels that either glide open on a bottom-mounted track or on hanging rollers mounted from above. The different styles of sliding doors include multi-slide doors, French doors, barn doors, pocket doors, lift-and-slide doors, and patio doors (sometimes called a sliding glass door).
Unlike swinging doors that need extra space for the panel to open, the sliding door’s panels stack. This makes them ideal for living rooms or balconies that may have furniture in the way. Exterior sliding doors are typically two or more large glass panels, earning them the nickname “panoramic doors.” Sliding doors make for massive openings that can open up a room and create a stronger sense of connection to the surrounding nature. This design is also ideal for high-traffic areas like the passageway leading to the backyard or patio during a get-together.
