Horizontal Sliding Doors
The most basic door design is the Single or Multiple Panel Horizontal Sliding Door. Dating back to the turn of the century, this simple, low-maintenance design is still widely used today. Vortex provides custom-built Sliding Doors by the foot or by the mile. Basic components are a panel with rollers on top hanging from an overhead track.
Heavier or larger doors may have v-groove or railway wheels supported by a floor track and are operated without springs, cables or motors. An unlimited amount of possibilities are available.
Horizontal Sliding Doors require side clearance in either direction. They can be installed with only 6 inches of headroom or zero headroom for a top-mount model.
