Large fully glazed Oak external sliding doors?

Post by Meccarroll »

ImageHi starting a new project or at least working on one in the new year.

It's a kitchen extension that is going to have two sliding doors installed to meet in a corner of the external kitchen wall. Sizes are approximately 2m High x 2m wide and 2m High x 3m Wide. They will be made from Oak and fully glazed.

Has anyone made a set before this size and does anyone have any corner details? I expect the client will not want a corner post. Oak is going to be the material used.

Anyone know what track system might be used etc?

Took a look Doug but I could not find any sliding systems for doors.

Then I changed my search engine and clicked on your line and hey presto!

Cheers, now taking a look.
