Choosing a door system

Choosing a door system
October 11, 2016

When considering the layout of your home, spare a moment to think about the amount of space taken up by the doors. Using a cavity slider in place of a hinged door eliminates the area of unusable floor and wall space that a hinged door requires. Cavity sliding doors disappear into the wall and are an obvious choice for small dwellings and apartments.

Popular in home offices, bathrooms and utility rooms, cavity sliders save space and can make a room feel more open.


Depending on the width of the opening, you can use either a single cavity slider, or bi-parting (double) doors that slide into opposite walls and meet in the middle when closed. For very large openings, such as between dining rooms and living rooms, you can even hang multiple doors on ceiling mounted tracks in order to divide the spaces.


Why choose CS Cavity Sliders?

Because CS FOR DOORS’ main focus is cavity sliders, they get it right: smooth running, trouble free and packed with features. They have been designing and engineering cavity sliding door systems locally for 30 years and are specified by more architects and builders than any other cavity slider in New Zealand. CS Cavity Sliders come with a 10 Year Written Guarantee and BRANZ appraisal, providing quality you can trust.


CS Cavity Sliders feature a low maintenance patented track design, ensuring dust build-up in the track doesn’t affect the ultra smooth running carriages. The aluminium frame is screwed together for reliability and supplied fully assembled for ease of installation. The manufacturing process requires all components to be fitted with 100% accuracy so that nothing can fall off or fail once it is hidden in your wall.


CS FOR DOORS have led the evolution of cavity slider design, engineering stronger and more reliable hardware. This has allowed them to extend the cavity slider beyond a convenient space saver to opening up an infinite number of space options in your home. Whether you’re looking for a discreet door that disappears quietly into the background or are looking to make a bold statement with a feature opening, CS has a solution for you.
