The system is made up of a split-type jamb produced from steel, which simply wraps around the end of a finished wall structure. Once fixed in place, the frame can be plastered over with the rest of the wall, giving an unbroken wall surface right up to the door and creating a seamless effect with the door being concealed with the wall.
There are two types of frameless doors. An inward opening door which is a rebated 54mm door and works with a floor spring and pivot, which is the ideal option if you are looking for a completely hidden door. The inward system will have the door flush with the wall and opening into a room – the external face of the door can therefore be cladded with various innovative options which can remarkably blend the door into a wall – SWD have carried out projects where our clients have used mirrors, various textured wall papers and leather panels.
The second type is the outward opening door which is flush with the wall on the outer side. This uses concealed hinges and the same metal frame system as above. This door will require something to open the door, typically a flush pull, so it is not a truly secret door. If a handle or flush pull is not required, a heavy duty magnetic push latch can be fitted. An overhead closer can be added.
