What is Sliding Door Gear?
Sliding door gear is hardware used on a door instead of hinges to allow it to be opened by sliding to the side. The most popular type of system is called a 'Top Hung' system, wherein a door is hung by two trolley hangers at the top, running in a concealed track.
All the weight of the door is taken by these two hangers making the door easy to move. At each end is a track stopper, installed to both absorb any impact made if the door is slammed and also to hold the door in the open or closed position. On some systems the stopper can also be upgraded to a soft close mechanism similar to kitchen draw technology.
Why use Sliding Door Gear?
The predominant benefit for using sliding door gear is the amount of space saved when compared to standard hinged doors. As doors don’t open into a room outwards, they slide along or into a wall, you save an average of 1270mm of operating space per door, or up to 5 metres if 5 sliding doors are used per house. As well as being a desirable, modern product they are also a safer option in the home, preventing common injuries caused by swinging doors, and when large heavy doors are used sliding doors are much easier to move for the user.
