Whenever wall or doorway openings are excessively wide, two or four-leaf telescopic sliding doors offer an excellent alternative to sliding door installations. Telescopic doors require approximately 30 percent less space than regular sliding doors due to their slimmer leaves. However, they have the capacity to close very large openings measuring as much as 4,000 mm. in width.
These very innovative and useful doors provide unusually quiet operation. They operate on toothed, low-moving belts with rollers composed of sturdy, low-noise creating plastic, running tracks that are decoupled acoustically, pulley guide ball bearing wheels and a series of guides for the door leaves. Carefully designed guide profiles also enhance the nearly silent, precision movement of these doors.
Major Features and Aspects of Telescopic Sliding Doors
Primary design and operational features and qualities of telescopic sliding doors include the following:
- Telescopic Double Cavity Framework. – The frames for telescopic double cavity sliding doors provide door operation on a top quality track and carriage system as do other types of double cavity gliding door frames. Since the telescopic system is designed to suspend from a top track, no cumbersome series of floor tracking or guides is needed for smooth operation. At overlapping points for doors, a small sized guide is installed on the floor to supply dependable door motion guidance.
- Double Cavity Slider Unit. – This pre-fabricated door sliding unit is easily installed into the walls adjoining the wide doorway opening by professional installation teams. This unit will enable the telescopic doors to glide completely into the installed pockets on either side of the large doorway. This eliminates any need for use of the space normally required for swinging doors to open into a room interior. With the telescopic frame installed, two door panels can slide into the same adjoining wall, permitting full opening of the wide doorway and admittance of all exterior light into the room.
- Telescopic Doors. – Operation of telescopic doors can be either manual or automatic. These doors may be made of aluminium or natural timbre that is solid or hollow. They may also be composed of medium density fiberboard (MDF), which is often preferred due to its high degrees of durability. As an engineered wood material used to manufacture doors, MDF is made from wood fibre that is recycled and recovered. Doors manufactured of MDF are resistant to warping, buckling, cracking or splitting. They are known for outlasting natural timbre doors and for sustained durability of their painted or finished surfaces.
