Sliding Doors

Keep it simple with McNaughton sliding doors.


Sliding doors are a popular type of door that provide many benefits in terms of design, functionality, and versatility. Here are some of the key features of sliding doors:

  • Space-Saving Design: Sliding doors operate by sliding along a track, meaning they don't swing in or out like hinged doors. This space-saving design is particularly useful in areas where there is limited floor space or where furniture placement may interfere with the swing of a hinged door.


  • Large Glass Panels: Like bifold and French doors, sliding doors feature large glass panels that allow for maximum natural light and unobstructed views of the outdoors.


  • Easy Operation: McNaughton Sliding doors are designed to be easy to operate, with smooth and quiet rollers that glide along the track. They can be opened and closed with minimal effort, making them a practical choice for high-traffic areas or for people with limited mobility.


  • Versatility: Sliding doors can be used in a variety of settings, from residential homes to commercial spaces. They come in a range of sizes and configurations, and can be customised to fit any space.


  • Energy Efficiency: McNaughton sliding doors are designed with energy efficiency in mind, featuring double-glazed glass and weatherstripping to prevent drafts and keep the interior of the space comfortable year-round.
