For Sliding Doors to be suitable for our systems, the door must be operating with minimal friction when closing. Once installed, the Door Closing System will make your Doors heavier to operate. Maximum opening of your Doors will need to be restricted to approximately 1100mm for system to work. It is possible to put closers on Double Doors where doors meet in the middle but with Stacker or Bifold Doors you can only have the last closing door as an active door (the other moveable leaves must be fixed permanently).
