The Benefits Of Cavity Sliding Doors

A cavity sliding door is a design where the sliding door is placed with a cavity. This space-saving design saves precious floor space and allows easier access than traditional doors between rooms. A cavity sliding door can benefit a range of properties including your home and office allowing for more space than a swinging door would normally allow. Here are some of the many benefits of installing cavity sliding doors.


Saving Space

Whether you’re purchasing or renting a new home, apartment or office space it’s important to utilise all the available space. Hinged doors are not the most practical option when it comes to saving space and aren’t a cost-effective solution. The action of opening and closing a swing door can approximately take up 1.6 square metres per opening. In comparison, Altro’s cavity sliding doors require no space as they slide into the wall easily, giving optimal space for the user on either side of the door opening. These are the best solutions when it comes to creating space particularly in studio apartments where space is limited to create divisions between different areas of the house. The sliding doors offer flexibility in living areas as they create a larger space for spending time with family and friends as they can move freely between the dining and living room. This also allows privacy in the home when you want to section off the TV noise from the dining area.
