Frameless Sliding Doors
Various Styles of Frameless Doors
There are hundreds of options that are available for offices when they are looking for ways to divide up space – one of them being frameless doors. Frameless doors offer many options regarding size, space, and design. There are three main options when choosing a frameless door: glass doors, wooden doors, and doors that match the walls in the room.
Glass doors are great for rooms that already have glass walls/doors or rooms with not a lot of sight lines. Glass frameless doors can open up a space very easily without compromising privacy or light flow. Glass is a common fixture in a lot of modern offices, and the glass without a frame is a very modern and edgy way to open up a space.
Wooden doors don’t really need a frame because they are of solid sightless construction anyway. They are more versatile without a frame and can come in many colors and sizes. Doors that blend in with the walls are great for keeping a space looking uniform. They can easily fit into the walls without a frame and look the same on either side.
Sometimes there is not a lot of space for installing doors and frames, and sometimes if the door is necessary, the office must forgo the door frame, which is a legitimate option with the wooden doors. Frameless doors give offices the option to add a fresh room divider that allows the space to be separated but open. There are many ways to add a frameless door to an office space.
Door construction options
There are many door construction options. Some of the most popular are track doors, hinged doors, and pocket doors.
Track doors are great if there is not a lot of space and the office is looking for a cohesive unimpeded look. They can match the walls or can be created into seamless works of art to brighten the workspace. Track doors have rollers on the top and bottom and fit into a track that allows them to slide becoming completely parallel to the wall it is next to. It can come in one door that slides to one side or two French doors that slide to their own respective sides.
Hinged doors are just like the regular doors everyone sees on a daily basis. There is a door and hinges, and the door swings in and out. Without a frame, the doors become a little different stylistically. They are not hindered as much in regards to space constraints and can be attached to any wall without any construction work.
The last major frameless door – the pocket door – involves two walls. The pocket doors allow the wall to look solid and uninterrupted but still have a door that the user who knows it’s there can use. Though typically made a color that matches the walls so they can be hidden, there are other options that allow the doors to be seen, like colored or glass doors. Despite their outside appearance, they all function in the same manner by sliding into the wall or walls that they line up with. It’s great for a wall that doesn’t have any support beams on it.
All of these frameless door options are modern, safe, and very functional. They can be customized to fit any office and any offices projected aesthetic.
