Many readers here are aware that I have a fascination with sliding doors, especially pocket or cavity doors. We recently sold out of our very popular keyed pocket door lock.
At last, the automatic sliding door technology that has been the domain of supermarkets, banks and other high profile office buildings and complexes comes to everyday residential and commercial applications at a super-competitive price point.
I am often asked by clients about sliding door closers and in the past have recommended a hydraulic (water powered) device designed for sliding screens. Now I am happy to see that this new product may be the Rolls Royce of sliding door operators.
Bloody good stuff!
