Hinged doors require clear floor and wall space to operate efficiently. By using cavity sliders between rooms, that valuable floor space is freed up for use. Combining cavity sliders with designed floor plans can create enough space to allow for an extra bedroom or study - adding value to the home.
In addition, cavity sliders allow rooms to be designed for multiple purposes. CS OvertakingDoors have an extra-thick cavity pocket, enabling a series of doors (up to five) to stack side-by-side inside the cavity pocket.
These units make great room dividers, and because the width of the pocket can be minimised, the potential size of the door opening can be maximised. Ideal rooms that benefit from this type of divider are living areas, where rooms may need to be closed off to create a more intimate space.
Recently CS For Doors undertook a project for NZ Built in a Jason Bailey designed property. The design of the home included a large multi use room incorporating the kitchen, dining and two lounges. This room was divided into two smaller and more intimate spaces using three large Alutec doors in an overtaking system.
Another way to section off an area is with the use of a corner meeting cavity slider. This simple but effective design concept transforms open space into distinctly separate living areas, creating privacy when required.
CS For Doors also provide a range of automatic units and specialty doors. For customised opening requirements, contact their automation engineers, who will appraise, refine and create your vision.
