Sliding Doors w/ Frontino from Hafele
"(02-01-2012) Hafele America Co. is pleased to announce Frontino, an innovative hardware that allows sliding doors to sit flush on tracks, instead of on separate tracks like others in the market.  The Frontino closes quietly and gently and is a great alternative to the noise and slam you can get from hinged doors.  Unlike hinged doors, sliding doors maximum available space as doors don’t open outwards taking up space.  The Frontino is great for Aging in Place because sliding doors allow easier access to cabinet interiors for those who may be in a wheelchair or need the assistance of a walker.  The hardware is also very useful in the kitchen because doors can stay open while meals are being prepared.  “Sliding doors are a stylish, functional and practical choice for every kitchen!  The Frontino takes sliding to the next level by saving space,” says Mae Holler, Product Marketing Manager for Frontino.
