OPERATION

BI-PARTING DOORS

A pair of doors sliding open from the center is considered a Bi-Parting door. Therefore, doors slide in the same plane (on the same track) and contact each other in the middle while closed.

SINGLE SLIDING DOORS

In a single sliding application, one door leaf slides to the side of the opening. Therefore, two door leaves get splined (joined) together to slide as a single unit.

bypassing doors

Doors that slide in different planes (separate tracks) “bypass” each other. The track may be mounted on the face of the building, or within the confines of the jamb.
