How do UltraSlim Slide-Pivot Doors open and close? The main door opens and closes with a pivot action, just like most doors in your home. When you want a wider opening, leave the main door open and slide the next door along to where the main door usually is – then open the second door in the usual way, to stack alongside the main door – you now have a walk-through opening equivalent to the width of two doors. You can continue to widen the walk-through area until you run out of doors! Just reverse the action to close the doors.
Note that Frameless Double Glazed Patio Doors are similar to UltraSlim but without the aluminium frames around the sealed glass units.
