Graphical Construction Glossary >> Doors. >> Door types >> Partition Doors
Here we are looking at part of a large hall type of room. On the wall we can see a pair of white double doors.
As you can see they look like doors, are probably made by a door manufacturer, and no doubt they run on standard sliding door track, but they are in fact panels that are tucked away, two abreast in a purpose made pocket., or docking bay.
Here we can see a partition in place. The panels are not attached to each other but when they are rolled out along the track they just butt up to each other to form a fairly decent temporary partition wall. Because the panels are not attached to each other they can easily be slid into position quite quickly by one person.
