Outline

Front doors for apartment complexes are typically hinged doors, which satisfy the performance requirements for residences (heat insulation, sound insulation, earthquakes, etc.). But when it comes to design, sliding doors have difficulty satisfying expectations, which has made them relatively rare. This product offers the same level of safety, reliability, and convenience possessed by hinged doors while also featuring a sliding mechanism that nearly matches the door width, creating an elegant appearance that serves as a harbinger for a new generation of front doors for apartment complexes.
