For each of the 99 guest rooms on levels one to nine, a CS SquareFormed cavity slider provides a space divider between the bedroom and bathroom area. The full height track is installed flush with the ceiling for a continuation of the living area into the bathroom area when the door is fully open. In a creative use of space, the 2.5m high x 1.3m wide door slides between two benches ensuring every inch of space is fully utilised. The CS AluTec door panels were supplied pre-finished in a custom Robin Egg Blue colour and fitted with bespoke handles. They are made from aluminium, making them strong enough not to bow or warp — a common problem with large wooden doors.
The penthouse suites use CS Ultimate cavity sliders to support the 64mm thick doors. The Ultimate is suitable for use with doors thicker than 40mm and up to 240kg. It can be specified whenever a thicker than standard door is required and suits 140mm wall framing.
All the cavity sliders for Hotel Britomart include CS SofStop — a smooth soft-close option available for use with sliding doors up to 100kg.
