There are many types of sliding doors. The size of sliding doors will vary according to the needs of different places. For example, the size of kitchen sliding door is generally 1900mm to 2400mm, the size of balcony sliding door is generally 800mm by 2000mm, and the size of indoor door is generally 800mm to 90mm. When you choose the size of sliding door, you can choose the appropriate size according to the actual decoration needs.
What is a sliding door?
In fact, sliding doors were first used in dressing rooms and wardrobes, but with the development of high-tech and various means of change, from traditional plate surfaces, to glass, rattan, aluminum alloy profiles, from sliding doors to folding doors and partition doors, and its functions and scope of use are constantly developing and expanding.
The sliding door has become diverse and very rich from the beginning of operation. In addition to the partition doors we often see, sliding doors are also widely used in bookcases, wall cabinets, exhibition halls and sliding doors.
What is the thickness of sliding door?
It depends on the size you need, and needs to be measured on the spot. If it is a single sliding door, such as a kitchen, there must be a sliding door opening position. Generally speaking, the thickness of large push-pull is 50MM, 75MM and 100MM, most of which are 100MM; The thickness of small sliding door is 50MM, 40MM, 35MM, most of which are 40MM; The thickness of wardrobe sliding door is 40MM, 35MM, 20MM, and the plate is 50MM.
The thickness requirements of different sliding doors are different, and the thickness of sliding doors made of different materials is also different. If glass or silver mirror is used as the door core, it is generally 5mm thick; If wood is used as the door core, 10mm thickness is the best. In order to save material costs, some manufacturers use thinner wood boards (8mm or even 6mm) instead. Too thin wood boards appear to be light, swaying and unstable when pushed and pulled, and are easy to warp and deform after being used for a period of time. The guide rail is jammed, resulting in unsmooth pushing and pulling, which affects normal use.
How to buy sliding doors?
When we buy sliding doors, consumers should pay attention to the material of sliding door frame and its hardness, because the materials of sliding doors on the market currently include carbon steel, aluminum and titanium alloy, etc. The sliding door made of carbon steel is relatively thin, and some frames can be felt by hand, so it is particularly easy to deform. The aluminum alloy material can be divided into recycled aluminum and high-quality aluminum titanium alloy. In order to reduce the cost, the sliding door with relatively low price will generally be made of recycled aluminum, which is too different from the cost of high-quality aluminum titanium alloy.
The surface treatment of aluminum is very important for consumers. At present, there are three kinds of surface treatment for aluminum on the market. One is that it can be pasted with PVC colored paper. This treatment can make aluminum colorful. The general disadvantage is that the sticker is very easy to be scratched and blistered. The second treatment method is ordinary spray treatment. Generally, after several production processes, its surface looks very rough, but it is still relatively good to use. Another is to use the regular electrophoretic oxidation wire drawing for treatment, and most of this treatment can be completed after more than ten procedures. The surface of aluminum material looks very delicate, with uniform color, and is not easy to fade. So we should ask and compare when we buy.
