Recycled hardwood timber doors were hung at a 1920s bungalow in Sydney using the Zero Clearance system from Allegion brand, Brio. The Zero Clearance system is a range of top hung straight sliding architectural systems for panels weighing up to 350kg.

Located in Bellevue Hill in Sydney, the house was going through a renovation, with the project involving refurbishment and major alterations including a new rooftop living space. The remodelling of the second floor drastically changed the layout to include an impressive, open plan living area and a large balcony extension.

Brio’s Zero Clearance system was used to span a 6m wide opening with the top hung sliding panels of the timber doors. The system enables the panels to slide effortlessly to one side, revealing a breath-taking, unobstructed view while flooding the living space with light.

A new clip stop for 80kg panels has also been introduced to Brio’s Zero Clearance Timber and Glass range. Replacing the standard door stop, the clip stop ensures panels are parked securely when not in use, eliminating any annoying rollback or movement. Zero Clearance ensures an almost invisible gap between the top of the panel and the ceiling, providing a striking, full height door.
