The use of sliding doors more often in the bedroom but now increasingly being used to seal or conceal kitchen areas in modern apartments and town houses is becoming more prevalent in the KBB marketplace today.
While there are many offerings of both internally mounted and externally hung sliding systems, where one door sits outside the other on parallel tracks, it is unusual to find a system where the doors when closed form a completely flush plane and sit perfectly side by side and in line.
BA Components have been working with other companies for a number of years to find and perfect the technology to achieve this and after three years of research and development along with Hardoor in Israel that system is just about to be launched in the UK and Ireland.
While there still is the normal ‘budget’ sliding systems in the Glidor by BA range, including both internally mounted and externally hung doors, it is the ‘in-line’ system that will set this collection apart and add real value in the normal BA manner.
All the systems can carry individual doors weighing up to 250kg and up to two metres wide another first for the UK and Irish markets, with all the strength of the system being engineered in the edge profiles and not the rails as is the case with most other systems.
The Glidor systems are fully patented and being offered exclusively in UK and Ireland by BA Components.
There are no limits to the design possibilities as the clean crisp lines lend themselves to many looks, limited only by our imaginations. No handles, no visible door separation or obvious step between the doors, no gaps. Doors can be made from MDF, MFC, Glass, mirror or a combination, the possibilities are endless and then simply by moving a lever, or gently pressing a door, or touching a remote, depending on the system installed, the doors come apart and can by moved side to side giving access to the wardrobes before being pushed back into the closed position where they will automatically move back into line. It truly is bringing magic to your bedroom…or kitchen.
Full details of the Glidor launch and distribution arrangements in Ireland and UK will be posted on the BA Components website later this month.
