This is a modified Hufcor 5500R partition. The door is two panels connected together to make up a single sliding door. The requirement was to have a panel partition that would allow the user to close off a 6′-6″ x 8′-0″ opening from a main corridor when the room is being used for meetings.

Because the adjacent main corridor is a heavy traffic area, there is no space available to stack a folding panel partition between the two spaces. The architect found the idea of a sliding door very appealing.

We were able to modify the standard Hufcor panels to provide a single sliding door to close off the opening when required, still allowing the area to be opened when meetings are not in session. To comply with exiting requirements from this meeting room, a doorway to a less traveled corridor was provided.
