The large sliding doors that we create using our solid patented torsion box composite door substrate are lighter in weight and stronger than other solid core doors manufactured elsewhere. Our process enables the creation of large doors, taller than 7 ft (up to 50 ft) that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for fifty years.
Though we only make the door blanks for custom door builders, millworks and door manufacturers, we can recommend the following sliding door hardware for use with our large sliding doors.
1 – Johnson 200SD Sliding Door Hardware

When combine with our lightweight high strength doors (which could even be extremely large in size) will last even longer maintenance-free.
