From maximizing the existing footprint in retrofits to reducing the spread of infection and supporting the flex needs of the hybrid workspace, this course will cover how interior sliding doors serve as versatile solutions meeting on-the-rise design trends while addressing ongoing space-efficiency and sound attenuation needs. Learn how interior sliding doors can help optimize occupant comfort through the use of daylighting and enhanced acoustic performance. Then, find out how to mitigate the spread of infection through sliding doors systems with touchless technology. Additionally, explore how space saving efficiencies can improve useability, address occupant accessibility challenges and facilitate healthy movement.
