Sliding doors – this is the most popular openable glazed door for several reasons:
- They can be made very large. In the lift-slide technology, Paarhammer can make sliding door giants up to 3m high by 3m wide for the actual slider or
2.1m high by up to 5m wide or anything in-between, up to 400kg.
- They are space saving. As the door/s slide over a fixed glazed area, there is no protruding door panel sticking out internally or externally.
- They can be motorised for even easier use.
- A variety of configurations are available, from single to double sliders, stacker sliders to corner sliders without corner post.
- You can open up a whole wall. In a sliding situation, one slider glides over a fixed glazed part whereas bi-fold doors stack to one or both sides but
open up a much wider space between indoors and outdoors, up to 10m.
- Tilt option. Depending on the configuration chosen, the first door can also tilt inwards from the top like a hopper window, providing ventilation and
- Stacking to the inside. Doors stacked to the inside keeps them out of the elements and reduces maintenance.

- Curved designs possible. Depending on your house style, French doors can be made with a curved head.
- Easy everyday use. If you don’t want to open both parts of French doors for everyday use, one of the two doors is easy to open just as a hinged door.
- Inside or outside opening options available.
