Patkau Architects pushed the envelope by making the AMG sliding door system an integral part of the Linear House design. This multi-award winning house was entirely about making all barriers to views disappear. The head and sill tracks are positioned higher/lower than interior finished floors and ceilings to make them invisible from the interior.
AMG-developed top-hung sliding system opens new frontiers in sliding door systems handling fenestration openings with an 80’ clear-span section in 8 bi-parting panels. Extensive deflection calculations, ‘large opening installations and ‘in-situ’ spot training were just some of the valuable lessons we learned on this remarkable project.
