Architects and designers have so many things to worry about that they often overlook one of the main parts of their project, doors. Door types must not only match the rest of the structural elements of the building, but there is a great obligation to make doors especially consistent with window styles. This is true not only for exterior, but also for interior doors. With interior doors, there is a sure fire way to make sure to always maintain consistency in terms of style.
The Ultimate Solution
The ultimate solution is Pocket Doors. Pocket doors go with virtually every style of window. They also match well with other elements, including your walls, floors, and ceilings. The smooth operation of pocket door styles can impress pretty much any customer, resulting in great satisfaction for all parties involved. From a professional standpoint, you want the customer to be as happy as possible with the end result. You can achieve this with pocket doors.
Why Large Pocket Doors?
When a pocket door is closed they look better, because you can make any size door for any sized opening big, broad doorways are becoming an increasing staple of the industry. Because of that, we recommend large pocket doors. Small doors create many functional problems people try to use them. Small doorways are prohibitive because people well be unable to move furniture in and out of the location. Customers are more likely to stub their toes or bang their knees and elbows. Small children are more likely to get hurt. More damage will result to the door and to the door and the areas around the doors when customers bang objects against these areas. Those are only a few of the major problems associated with small doors. Hinge doors are even worse, because even when open the doors still cut into the usable space of the doorway.
Who Should Use Large Pocket Doors
Pocket doors have become an absolute staple for the highest end residential and commercial structures. They work in many situations where conventional hinge doors will not work. First of all, they are great when you can’t have a door that slides outward into the room because of space restrictions. They also can span larger openings.
Large Pocket Door Considerations
Because of the increased size, large pocket doors must be designed far better to function properly when compared to conventional doors. If not manufactured correctly, larger doors are at risk of warping, skewing, breaking, cracking, or separating. They also require much more materials to create. In part, that is why they are more expensive. Not to mention, they require a larger facility and more man hours to create. They are also more difficult to hang, because of the size. Large pocket doors also need much heavier duty hardware that ends up being much more expensive overall. Many manufacturers build large pocket doors that are far too heavy and too curved to operate properly.
We solve the problem with a number of amazing new improvements in the manufacturing phase. We are able to build doors that are many times stronger than the competition. Equally important, our large pocket doors are many times lighter than competing products. Our doors are also much straighter and dimensionally stable than other large pocket doors.
