June 1, 2021
Sliding doors usually consist of 1 or 2 door panels sliding behind or in front of a fixed panel.
Stacker doors create larger openings as they are incorporating multiple stacking panels into a fixed panel.
Bi-fold doors offer expansive openings that extend your living space to outdoor living by sliding and stacking onto each other.
Hinged doors are designed to open one room up to another one, they are usually a single door or sometimes double opening.
Cavity sliding & stacking doors achieve a much larger opening as they usually stack into a wall cavity hiding majority of the door itself.
Barn doors usually come in a single or double door that have an exposed track fixed to the top of the door opening and slide against the wall.
Pivot doors are a modern alternative to a hinged door. They are a swinging door that rotates on a spindle as opposed to butt hinges affixed to a frame.
