Lift & Slide Doors
Lift & Slide doors offer superior performance to regular sliding doors for a number of reasons. Compared to top hung sliders the weight of the door is on the floor. When you turn the handle of a lift and slide door the door panel rises up a fraction of an inch, allowing the door to glide sideways with little effort. But once you have reached where you want the panel (fully open, fully closed or anywhere in between) then closing the handle will lower the panel back onto the floor not only blocking the door securely but creating a seal against air and water that regular sliding doors cannot replicate. Consequently their thermal performance is greatly superior as well
Lift & Slide doors can have fixed and moving panels and can be pocketed (disappear into the walls). offering the best way to completely remove a wall and create a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors.They can be fully motorized and can be matched with sliding screens.
Lift & Slide doors from CoorItalia can be manufactured in wood, wood clad in bronze or aluminum, architectural bronze, or a variety of steel options.
Motorization is also possible. An example of a 14ft steel corner unit is shown in this video:
