How Do Sliding Doors Work?

Sliding doors operate as a sliding door panel alongside a set of horizontal rails. Due to the weight of the door being suspended on the rollers towards the top of the door, weight plays a huge part in its construction and structure. If the door appears too heavy, it can be too difficult to open – taking it off the tracks. However, most sliding doors have a guide along the bottom of the door to prevent the door from swinging out of place. Additionally, sliding patio doors include a stopper at either end to once again prevent the door from sliding off the track.

Depending on the height, weight and appearance of the sliding door, this operation can vary due to the various bespoke options that Arkay Windows offer, however the performance and high quality materials will remain the same. However you want to design your sliding door, Arkay can tailor it to your specific needs and preferences – leaving you with a completely uniquely crafted home improvement solution.
