Creative uses of sliding doors are opening up all over in residential settings as well as in commercial spaces. A variety of applications incorporating sliding doors include cabinetry – kitchen, media and vanity cabinets – as well as wardrobes, and, of course interior doors.
Hardware manufacturer Hettich America, Buford, GA, has several interior sliding door options. The TopLine M sliding door system (on our cover) is for overlay doors on wardrobes and hall closets. According to the company, the door elements can be positioned one in front of the other for parallel positioning. Additional styles include the TopLine L for large units, InLine XL for flush-fitted door fronts, and the SlideLine 55 Plus, which can be used in a variety of applications as well as for inset fronts or overlays.
Sliding Doors at Trade Shows
Industry shows provide manufacturers with an opportunity to give attendees a first-hand look at sliding door systems in use in a variety of ways. Garfield, NJ-based Nevato USA, which designs and produces aluminum storage systems and sliding door systems, exhibited one of its doors at the 2014 Cabinets & Closets Expo.
Hafele America introduced its Aluflex sliding door at Ligna in 2013 and will display not only Aluflex but its Clipo, Slido and 2012 Challengers Award-winning Frontino sliding doors at IWF 2014.
