Extra Large Sliding Doors

Extra Large Sliding DoorsWhen an opening is larger than around 8 metres wide it becomes increasingly difficult to find the right solution, especially for a price that is not astronomical. The same occurs for doors over 8 metres in height. For such large openings and applications a large sliding door must be considered.

Manual operation is a simple with sliding doors, regardless of the size, due to efficient and innovative engineering. The weight of the door is distributed evenly across the panels and wheels, ensuring easy and smooth operation every time.

Here at Samson Doors we offer straight sliding industrial and commercial doors, in a double-skinned panel construction, to fill almost any sized opening. Telescopic sliding makes for a very sensible choice when controlling access on a large scale opening. Telescopic opening also means that the door can be opened partially to allow easy access to traffic, pedestrian or vehicular, without needing to open the door fully. This time saving feature can convert itself into realistic time-savings in a workplace setting.

Of course, you can also have a pedestrian door (wicket door) inset into one of the main sliding door panels and these will always be larger than pedestrian door options offered on roller shutter doors.

A pedestrian door allows for easy access via a hinged-swing door, usually about 1 metre wide with either a very low threshold or no threshold at all. Various handles and furniture options are available, including panic furniture to act as a fire exit, which can potentially remove or reduce the need for other fire doors.

  • External or Internal mounting of door system
