Could this be an end to door frustration?

People can be put off cavity sliders after experiences with inferior door hardware. The edge pulls that come as standard with some doors are very poorly designed and difficult to use, requiring extra effort every time you want to pull the door out of the pocket. 

Typical ‘latch and striker’ locks also require you to make a conscious effort to align the handle with the striker in the closing jamb when closing the door. 

Cavity sliders are often ‘flicked-closed’ after walking through, which can lead to the door bouncing and settling in a half-open, half-closed position. 

After observing how people use cavity sliders, we have designed the CL400 Magnetic for ‘one-step’ use. Instead of concealed levers and lift up hooks to retrieve the door from the pocket, a moulded finger recess has been incorporated in the design. It is comfortable and intuitive to use, requiring no second action to operate.

A concealed rare earth magnet holds the door firm when it closes so that the same ‘flick-closed’ operation will no longer result in the door ‘bouncing’. 

The CL400 Magnetic is the first ever sliding door handle to incorporate all the required handle functions (passage, privacy, key locking, bi-parting) into one form and to suit a range of door thicknesses from 34mm-52mm. It is no longer necessary to source different door handles to complete one project. 

Designed and manufactured in New Zealand from high quality components to an uncompromising standard, the CL400 really could be the defining point in door hardware and an end to sliding door rage.
