The benefits of sliding bathroom doors



Often the door from the bathroom opens into a narrow corridor, where there is always a danger to get hit by the door for someone who at this time will pass through this corridor.

Sliding door design


The sliding door is arranged on the principle of the door in the compartment of the car. That's why sometimes this door is called a "coupe door." The same principle is used in cupboards.

The door is fastened on special guides, on which it can move freely left and right. The number of door canvases and their width is chosen depending on the size of the doorway.

This door looks very aesthetically pleasing. Sliding doors in the interior are shown in the photo below (photo clickable - click to enlarge):.

Sliding door material


Sliding doors to the bathroom can be made of a variety of materials - glass, plastic, veneer, with PVC trim, laminated. On the guides you can hang the door of any material.

After that, the door is installed on it and the height of the upper guide is installed.

The top guide is mounted and the restraints are installed.

Caring for sliding doors


Most often, the breakdown of sliding doors-coupe is associated with the fall of debris in the guides and the failure of rollers. This is especially true for apartments where animals live, whose hair is clogged in the fittings and leads to the breakdown of the door opening mechanism.

To avoid this, periodically clean the guides with a vacuum cleaner, remove the litter caught in them.
