Brio’s Zero Clearance was used in the renovation of a 1920’s Bungalow in Sydney, Australia to span an opening 6m wide with top hung sliding panels. The project consisted of refurbishment and major alterations which included a new rooftop living space. Remodelling of the second floor drastically changed the layout in order to include an impressive, open plan living area and a large balcony extension. Recycled hardwood timber doors were hung using Brio’s Zero Clearance system which enables the panels to slide effortlessly to one side and reveal a breathtaking, unobstructed view. This transformation has produced a large family home which is now flooded with light and has a chic beach side shack ambience.
Zero Clearance Timber and Glass use a clip stop for 80kg panels which replaces the standard door stop and ensures panels are parked securely when not in use, removing any annoying roll back or movement. Our new soft close for 80kg panels is also available, it is easy to install and simple to operate as the spring and damper work together to control the panel. The mechanism catches the moving door and reduces its speed before retracting it towards the jamb ensuring a quiet and soft stop every time. Zero Clearance provides an almost invisible gap between the top of the panel and the ceiling which provides a striking, full height door.
