There are a number of aluminium sliding doors options to choose from which include the following.
Inline slide door:
The panel of this door will slide on its frame. The quality of these inline products have increased tremendously over the last few years and offer exceptional value.
You can easily use this door type to cover a 6 meter area. These doors can run on multiple tracks that will allow the door to open in any direction.
Sliding doors for an open corner:
These doors will meet at the corner of a room. When you slide these doors away from each other, you will have a wonderful open plan area where the corners of the house or building are opened up.
It’s a wonderful product that gives a great effect. Word of caution though. It’s important to get the approval of a structural engineer as your corner in most cases won’t have support.
This support is crucial to support the weight of the roof and sliding doors.
Slide doors that lift and slide:
With these doors, the handle plays a crucial role in sliding the door.
When the door handle is lifted, it lifts the sliding glass door off its slider in order to slide it easily. This is a very popular model.
Sliding doors that disappear:
These sliding glass doors can slide right into the wall. So from the construction phase, the wall has to be built in such a way that the aluminium sliding door ‘disappear’ into the wall.
This is another beautiful design that gives you even more space than a stacking door or sliding doors that stack next to each other.
