You may have heard that Versatile Wood Products is getting a new showroom! The first piece to go in were these amazing, custom lift and slide walnut doors.
The unusual “lift and slide” mechanism was chosen for these doors. This mechanism is primarily used for extra-large doors, allowing them to open easily without resistance from weather-stripping.
The goal of these conference room doors is to provide privacy, while also allowing some visibility to avoid cutting the room off entirely. Panes of insulated glass were incorporated, also providing sound reduction. To provide extra stability, all pieces were laminated together. A continuous grain pattern was selected to run horizontally through the doors. With the continuous grain and rich colors, these doors play a large part in creating the ambiance of the new showroom.
The mechanism is completely stainless steel, eliminating corrosion concerns. It can be used with doors up to 800 pounds, making it perfect for this large scale application.
Curious how it works?
To open the door, the handle raises up and lifts the door off the track to allow it to move easily without resistance from the weather-stripping. Once the door is pulled closed, the handle is lowered and the tracks make contact to create a tight seal and lock.
There are only a handful of companies that can make a lift and slide door. Here at Versatile Wood Products, we can design and build a door to meet your exact specifications. Our goal is to fulfill our customer’s design needs with the right door and hardware that will ensure a functional design and operating system over the lifetime of the door.
Come and see these doors, along with other beautiful custom doors and windows at our showroom launch on September 18th!
