External cavity sliding doors are the ultimate way to seamlessly connect your indoor and outdoor spaces. 

Our weatherproof cavity sliding door system allows you to design an external doorway up to 16 metres wide. The doors simply glide away inside the walls to create an impressive 100% opening.

Our premium cavity sliding door system can accommodate from 1 to 8 timber doors on a multi-layered track, and can be custom-made to suit your size and design requirements. We also offer optional flush sills with tile inserts if you prefer a doorway without a step.

Suitable for openings up to 16 metres wide

Cedar West also offers a range of internal cavity sliding doors. Click here to find out more about our internal cavity sliding doors

Weather-Sealed System

Our external cavity sliding door system incorporates a unique weather-sealed cavity box inside the wall, which holds all of the doors when they are not needed. The system uses superior quality weatherseals to provide a high degree of protection from the wind and water in external applications. Our cavity sliding door system also includes a sill to provide drainage once the doors are closed.


Premium Quality Mechanisms

We use superior quality mechanisms and hardware to ensure that our doors are both reliable and easy to operate. Our external cavity sliding door system includes robust, foot-rolling door hardware to support the weight of the door at ground level. This means that the doors will glide open smoothly and effortlessly for years to come.

We also offer optional automatic sliding door operators (supplied by Dorma).  Automatic door operators are ideal for use in commercial applications, aged care projects and premium quality homes.
