If considering a Coburn Foldaside 100 top hanging sliding folding gear in a situation where a bottom guide rail cannot be used, as the underlying floor is concrete and the 15mm groove in to which to set the bottom guide could not be provided. The manufacturer’s guidelines are that “The floor guide and channel must be used on doors over 15kg or 450mm wide.”  The reason is that the floor guide takes most of the lateral load off the hinges, and hinges supplied with the kits are only lightweight.  It might be an idea to look at the more heavy duty Saheco SF-A84D sliding-folding system, because we supply that with Royde & Tucker H102 or H104 Hi Load hinges.  Alternatively Hi-load hinges can be purchased separately, which would mean you would almost certainly be successful without the bottom guide.

Q: Can the ‘Foldaside 100’ track length could be extended to 2440mm?

A:  Looking at the Foldaside 100 – 4 door 2400mm kit, the top and bottom tracks can be alternatively purchased by the metre (i.e. in 3m sections, which you could cut down).  But if your opening is 2.44m, then it may be possible to get away with 2.4m tracks by positioning the 4cm “gap” at the side where the doors are attached to the wall.  This should not affect the operation of the doors.
