Open Corner Sliding Doors
An open corner detail can also work well on inverted corners, creating courtyard spaces with dynamic movement options from the internal areas to external areas. These are great for basement light wells or inner garden courtyards. These sliding doors can open on corners from 65 degrees to 177 degrees, as well as 90 degree corners.
‘Multi corner sliders’ are also possible with the minimal windows® system, this means that when the doors are slid open one elevation slides away from the building fabric, making sure that points of travel are possible across all tracks.
Where a cantilevered roof or similar is being introduced to maximise on the open nature of the open corner sliding doors designers must keep in mind that these slim framed sliding glass doors can only take a live load deflection of +/-5mm.
Why not mix a pocket door and open corner? The sliding glass doors can open away from a corner connection and then slide away into hidden cavity pockets within the walls for an invisible, disappearing sliding door.
