Sliding Steel Doors Provide Stylish Link Between Interior Spaces

Members of the Steel Window Association (SWA) supply and install internal sliding doors (pictured) in a wide range of sizes and styles to suit all types of interior schemes. They create a stylish link which maximises light transmission while cutting draughts and noise transmission from adjoining spaces.

The single glazed doors can be specified as bi-parting and can be installed with discreet wall pockets to hide the running mechanism from view. They are ideal for zoning off a dining room or children's playroom from the kitchen, for example, but will work equally well in other locations such as spa complexes and restaurants.

Sliding doorsets are not fire-rated. They are, however, glazed with toughened or laminated glass for safety and can be lockable. They are also available with many different types of handles and in bespoke as well as standard RAL colours.

The specification of the sliding mechanism itself will be determined mainly by the overall weight of the door, as Darren Lloyd of Govette Windows explains: 
"These sliding/pocket doors are available across the membership, though each company may have their own way of manufacturing the doors utilising different sliding mechanisms and makes of ironmongery.
"Our internal doors are single glazed with 6.4 mm laminated glass, while the sliding mechanism is a 'Henderson' product. We recently manufactured and installed a single sliding pocket door that was 2150mm wide x 2700mm high.
"We also use a 'blanking off' plate to the visible door and fixed light jambs that SWA members specifically designed to cap off profiles, so that they look neater when used on an internal application. The meeting stiles can further feature a draft strip, included within the blanking plate, to reduce air movement and sound transmission."

The SWA's membership provides UK-wide coverage for the manufacture, installation and repair of all types of steel framed doors and windows, from heritage situations to ultra-modern apartment buildings and commercial developments.
