The W20 single glazed profiles ensure good sight lines from one area to another, compared to potentially chunky proportions required with timber or aluminium, while allowing maximum light transmission. The slender and robust steel frames are often divided into small panes for aesthetic reasons and are ideally suited to high-end, design-led residential and commercial schemes.
Bespoke internal steel sliding doors provide considerable design flexibility and may be employed as pocket doors or surface-mounted to slide back across a wall. The doors can be of any size and are hung from a high quality, heavy duty track system so door thresholds are unnecessary, resulting in an uninterrupted finished floor level. Recessed handle plates are normally installed into the door.
Excellent durability is assured as the doors can be hot-dip galvanised and factory-finished. To achieve the required look, a high quality polyester powder coat may be applied in any RAL colour or, alternatively, an industrial raw steel finish can be provided that shows up the details of the manufacturing process, including the welded joints. This is achieved either through a clear powder coating or with the application of a high quality factory applied lacquer.
