What are Sliding top hung doors
Sliding top hung doors help to create an open, flexible, and modern space for both living and working environments, making a real statement of class, elegance, and versatility. Sliding top hung doors allow for a huge amount of openness in rooms with limited floor space. This door style is excellent at turning awkward spaces into usable ones that don't require their owners to continuously move furniture around.
Sliding top hung doors also accommodate for a variety of room layouts and can be used as pocket or bi-folding doors to allow the option of either an open or closed environment.
Typically, these doors are found in bathrooms and kitchens where space is at a bare minimum but there are applications outside of this type of room too, such as in hallways or open plan living areas. Typically, these doors are made from glass and metal, but modern manufacturers are creating them with materials such as bamboo (see picture above), which can help to add a unique touch to any room.

Sliding top hung doors are a great alternative to the traditional & closed style of standard flanged sliding doors. Clients may go for this style of the door because it exudes modernity, elegance and creates an open area feel about it. Sliding top hung doors are easy to handle, thus making them ideal for commercial settings where they can be used for all kinds of purposes.
The design of these doors is such that they are extremely ideal for smaller applications as well, making them look great where space is limited or where there is a need for an elegant door that can be slid out of sight after use. Despite the newness associated with this door style, top hung sliding doors are an old traditional design that is commonly used in the kitchen of most homes.
The top-hung door is designed with a mechanism to hang on steel tracks and roll-out, back into its casing at the end of its run after surfing the full extent required for opening or closing it. This avoids any obstruction beforehand that would otherwise mar the aesthetics there and is also ideal for areas where space is at a premium. The door usually slides on the track in an outward direction, but there are variants that can be reversed to slide it inward as well.
Top hung sliding doors may also use manual hinges or combine both methods, depending on their purpose and design. The latest addition to this type of door style is the use of sophisticated technology which allows for automated opening and closing. This, however, is a more complex choice as it comes with an additional cost related to installation as well as its usage. They can be used to divide a room or as an additional door to help with airflow, all while keeping your area looking professional and stylish. Best of all they create a more contemporary feel than other doors, giving you extra storage space and leaving your space open to work in or use as a living and eating area.
They also help in creating a more durable area in your home with their smooth sliding motion and individual designs for each door. As they slide along tracks on the ceiling you can be sure they’ll offer a smoother opening and closing process than any other type of door, so there’s no need to worry about broken hinges or troublesome doors that get stuck.
Sliding top hung doors can be made from a wide range of materials, such as glass and metal. This means you get to decide what type of material fits best in your space and gives you the opportunity to make the area fit perfectly with the rest of your room.
