Retractable sliding door unit: Navibloc® Placo®

The pocket doors are ideal for rooms where space is limited, for example in the attic. The Navibloc® aluminum frame fits directly into the thickness of a Placo® partition. It can be painted to match the entire partition. Closed aluminum screens with a broom seal provide very good sound insulation. Their decliping makes it easy to remove and install the door. The door can be painted without removing the whole. Each door is delivered with a stainless steel bowl handle and a pull sleeve.
