For gypsum board (dry wall) models, use wood or cement based board to cover the cavity wall.
Once the system is installed with the correct alignment and verticality, the cavity system will become rigid once the cement-sand plaster is applied on the brickwall models, or board is fastened for the gypsum models.
No, you don’t. You can take out the door panel by removing the top door frame and disengage the rollers from the hanging brackets.
• Sliding track will not sag and thus door will not get trapped
• Consistent workmanship and the cavity system has constant thickness
• Slim thickness to match adjoining wall
• Seamless wall finish with adjoining wall
• No crack at the joint with adjoining wall
• Built on site system will tend to be thicker – at least 200mm. It can be an eyesore. If similar thickness of adjoining wall is used, it will be very flimsy.
• The junction between the cavity door and adjoining brickwall will tend to crack due to dissimilar material, as well as vibration caused by door movement and slamming.
• The track will tend to sag and cause the door to scratch the floor or even get stuck.
• The carpenter does not warrant against his workmanship nor parts he purchased
• The exposed sliding door prevents the usage of the wall. Hence, there is no saving of space
• With SLIDEHIDE cavity wall, the sliding door disappears into the wall. Hence, the face of cavity wall can be used to hang towel rail or picture.
Yes, you can run conduit along the casing and place the switch box onto SLIDEHIDE cavity wall and plaster accordingly.
No. There is no bottom track
Yes, you can. You can consult us if you need more detail.
As the cavity system is covered with cement-sand plaster or board, it will last as long as the structural elements. The rollers have been tested under International Standard and can last more than 15 years under normal usage.
Under our standard design, the door panel is flushed with the door frame when the door panel is fully opened. The door panel can protrude, if the design or usage requires so, by modifying some dimension.
As there is no food and the cavity is made of steel, such problems do not exist.
No, the bottom of the casing will be flushed with the finished floor level.
