Sliding doors open unlimited possibilities for the diversity of a space. You can easily divide spaces and even create complex space solutions. With a sliding door you can also create space and make a smaller space larger by combining several rooms together.

The current trend in modern apartment building is to build smaller apartments and utilize every square mile. In these situations, a sliding door is a popular door choice. Where opening a hinge door would be tricky and bulky, a sliding door does the same easier and by saving space. Sliding door systems open possibilities for interior design, since sliding doors can also be used as movable walls.

A sliding door is not just a door, which is simply a mandatory equipment for closing and opening door ways. It can be much more. A sliding door is part of the interior design, a space enabler and part of a carefree everyday life.


Interior sliding doors
