Partition with Pocket Sliding Door

Unread post #1 by bryant77 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 9:16 am

This one is a consultation clinic. The Interior Designer requested me to built the partition with pocket sliding door.
For the pocket sliding door the previous plan was to used a solid wood frame door open type with frosted glass insert.
Considering the door frame of 40mm thick plus the double wall for the pocket I will have around 150mm thick wall partition.

I suggest to used a 3/8" (10mm) thick tempered glass for the sliding door so I can have only 100mm thick partition.

2x4 wood framing for the partition.

For the pocket I used 2x2 (38mm) wood framing. But I planned the wood to bring down the thickness to 35mm to have enough clearance on the pocket.

Glass door is 3/8" thick (10mm)
SP - Polished Edge
Tempered
with Holes , 2 - 10mm upper holes for the sliding roller, 1-46mm hole for the round stainless handle.

with details shown on the pic. This is the shop drawing I send to the glass manufacturing plant.

I always double check the measurement prior for the fabrication. Once the glass is tempered it's final. Wrong dimension it's either you will scrap the glass or adjust the wood framing to make adjustment.

Doc V,

The weight of the glass #01 (910mm x 1910) is around 42.2 kg.

The roller is rated 100 kg.

Yun glass sa planta ko inoorder.

Machines kse ginagamit in polishing the edge, drilling holes and tempering. Tempering process is to toughen the glass + safety property of the glass that it breaks into small pieces. Avoiding laceration pag nabasag yun glass unlike ordinary glass.

Glass No. 1 - 910mm x 1910mm cost P4,200
Glass No. 2 - 580mm x 1910mm cost P2,800

For a 4x8x3/8" clear glass/tempered around P5,000

Glass must be strong enough to hold its own weight. I had something like this a few years back in my shop, the glass broke from its holder after a couple of years of use. For your use, I doubt the traffic will be that much, unlike my retail shop. I'm just not sure if we have the same type of holder.
Your cutting tools is only as good as your sharpening system.
