Installing an interior sliding door

In a modern apartment or country house, sliding interior doors are installed so that they perform some important functions. For example, such doors can save space in small rooms, because less space is needed to move the door along the wall (as opposed to swing leaves), or they are a beautiful addition to the interior. Doing a big renovation? Plasterboard sheets will help to implement interesting ideas in design.

The types of structures for sliding doors are with external and internal installation. Internal assumes that the doors will be hidden inside the wall — this installation is best suited for construction.

For external installation, no complicated work is required. Requires guide elements that are attached to the wall. Guiding elements are provided in two forms:

— standard, top and bottom mounts

— guide only at the top

Leveling the walls and floor, especially in the place where the door will open, is one of the main requirements when preparing a place for installing an interior sliding door. If this condition is not met, then when sliding the doors can get stuck, which very soon can lead to their breakage..

Another, no less important element that you need to pay attention to is the material of which the wall is composed. Choose fasteners based on this information. The whole procedure for mounting sliding interior doors will consist in choosing the desired fastening of the guide element to the floor or wall..

The high-quality installation of such a door also depends on the choice of fittings, because it is its quality that directly affects the service life, safety in use, and the operation of sliding doors. Buy accessories from a trusted manufacturer, always with a guarantee and do not forget to pay attention to the quality.

When installing, do not forget about the building level, because the distortion can subsequently lead to unexpected breakdown. Carriers are placed at the top of the sliding door, which fix it to the guide element. A shoe is installed at the bottom. After that, the sashes themselves are suspended, and the installation of the sliding doors is completed..
