Supply Various Type of Aluminium, Wooden & Glass Sliding Door in Singapore

Sliding doors are a highly-practical design feature as they move from side to side, and there is no need to have to leave space for a door to swing open. This space-saving feature makes them ideal for areas where building space is limited, and floor plans need to optimise every inch of space. This aspect is part of why so many homes feature a sliding door in Singapore.

They are also versatile, as the material used to build the door can lend to different utilizations. For example, if you have a balcony, and want to let some extra light, you might opt for a glass door. Whereas inside, a light-weight solid material can be used to provide privacy.

What are the different types of sliding doors?

A sliding door is only as good as the materials it is made from. Here are the primary materials that you’ll need to consider.

  • Aluminium sliding door: An aluminium sliding door in Singapore is a lot lighter than a wooden one. It’s an affordable building material that won’t tarnish or rust and that needs no maintenance.
  • Frameless sliding door: If you’d like to maximise your space, doing away with the frame is a great place to start. Frameless doors allow you to do this. They are made using panels of tempered glass and will stand some abuse.
  • Wooden Sliding Door: Chances are you’ve seen at least one wooden sliding door in Singapore as this type is widely used and is the more traditional door choice. The wood offers a warmer, more natural look than the aluminium. The downside is that it will need to be stripped and varnished every few years or so.

The material that you choose will depend on what makes sense for your décor and budget. Aluminium is an excellent all-around choice for those on a tighter budget. It will fit with almost any décor and is durable and low-maintenance.

A frameless option is going to cost a little more, but it is quite stylish. It’s not the best option if you have small children, though. The wooden frame looks nice and natural if you’re willing to refinish every few years.

Which surfaces are better for sliding doors?

Fifty years ago, if you wanted a sliding door in Singapore, you had very few options. It was either a solid wooden door or a door with glass panels. Over the years, as technology has improved, available options have diversified.

Common types of door panels and their benefits

  • Acrylic Panel: This is one of the newer options and is popular because it is durable and inexpensive. If you have young children, this option is better than glass. It comes in a range of different tints and is scratch resistant.
  • Acrylic Opaque Panel: If you need privacy, an opaque panel is the way to go. No-one will be able to see what is going on behind the panel. You can also use it as a design feature by choosing a patterned option.
  • Phenolic Panel: Perhaps you want something a little more robust. A phenolic panel has a resin core and can be finished in several different ways. It’s also strong, with the advantage being that you can opt for laminates to create the perfect look for you.
  • Glass Panel: This is an elegant favourite. The glass can be transparent or etched as you prefer. Glass panels are durable, easy to clean, and a very popular type of sliding glass door in Singapore.

Common Places to Install a Sliding Door

Mention the word “sliding door,” and most people automatically think about those big-paned glass doors connecting the inside and outside of their homes. Sliding doors, however, offer a space-saving option that can benefit you indoors as well, though.

  • Kitchen: A kitchen sliding door can be used to great effect. Perhaps you want to be able to enjoy an open-plan living space and spend time with your guests. If that’s the case, slide the door away and enjoy the space. When not needed, close the room off again for privacy.
  • Bathroom: Maybe you have a small en-suite bathroom and want to screen it off. A standard door would work, but it would take up a lot of space. The sliding door allows you to take full advantage of the small area in the bathroom.
  • Toilet: A toilet sliding door might seem like a more unconventional option, but it does make a lot of sense in a small space. You can have the door panel frosted or created from opaque or patterned acrylic for complete privacy allowing others to use the sink and mirror even if the toilet is in use.
  • Balcony: Naturally, a sliding door makes perfect sense if you want to take full advantage of panoramic views, or if you want to make the best of a smaller balcony area.

Pros and Cons of a Sliding Door

There are a few advantages to sliding doors. First, they can be used as an interior or exterior door. Use one with a large pane of glass on an exterior wall allows in a lot of light and a lot of air. This option can be ideal on a hot summer’s day. They’re also ideal if you have a view that you want to take full advantage of.

When used internally, a sliding door can help you to save space. You won’t have to worry about making room for a door to swing open inside the home.

There aren’t many downsides. Generally speaking, problems with these doors are mostly due to them not being installed properly. If the tracks are not laid perfectly straight and level, you’ll battle to open and shut the doors.

Wooden-frame doors can also be hard for children and the elderly to open because they are heavy. Glass doors could be problematic if someone doesn’t realise the door is closed and knocks into them.

Other than that, the track needs to be vacuumed regularly to ensure that the door can run smoothly. Sliding doors are also not the best options in high-crime areas, although they can be instaled with more secure locks.

How much does a sliding door cost?

That’s going to depend on the size of the door that you want and what materials you choose. Prices start at around SGD 1000 for the very cheapest options, with wooden frames coming in at almost double that amount. Strange as it may seem, a frameless door is going to cost more. That’s because the glass used during construction must be tempered, and tempered glass costs more overall.
