The right commercial office doors can drastically change both the style and function of an office. Clients expect a modern look, but also want privacy. So, commercial doors must provide both. AD Systems’ OfficeSlide™ commercial doors slide into place, providing a clean look and open feel. However, they also give both employees and clients optimal acoustic privacy. With multiple finishes and hardware options, OfficeSlide doors also give every business a completely customized look. Sliding doors are an office design trend that is here to stay, and AD Systems’ doors can beautifully update any office.
Which Commercial Office Doors are the Best Choice?
When it comes to doors, there are two main options: swinging-style doors and sliding doors. With doors that swing open, office workers have to contend with problems such as lack of space and safety. In addition, swinging doors are generally standard, rather than providing you with stylish, modern options.
In contrast, sliding (or “barn”) commercial office doors provide the following benefits:
- Employees have extra office space with sliding doors.
- Sliding doors won’t swing into a corridor
- The hardware maintenance required for sliding doors is often minimized
- Sliding doors can provide more room for moving furniture or large equipment.
- Of course, sliding doors look great! They give any office that special “something” to set them apart.

Sliding Doors for Shared Spaces
Although considering door options for individual offices is important, don’t overlook small conference rooms and other shared spaces. In fact, these spaces are among the most important in any office, as they promote collaboration.
For shared spaces, glass commercial office doors are a great choice. AD Systems’ glass OfficeSlide doors allow any shared space to feel large and open. Allowing natural light to filter through an office results in many benefits. Productivity increases due to higher morale and energy costs decrease due to the warmth of the sunlight. Additionally, they provide privacy for clients because of their acoustic barrier. With sliding glass doors, employees can meet with clients confidentially. Also, sliding glass doors allow conference calls and meetings to happen without disturbing other employees.
Because OfficeSlide doors provide privacy, they are perfect for businesses that handle sensitive information. This includes law firms, banks, accountants, tech companies, and medical-related business. If your client information needs to stay private, OfficeSlide doors are the best choice.

Timeless Office Door Design
No one has time to renovate every time a new design trend becomes popular. So, the engineers at AD Systems designed OfficeSlide doors to be timeless. Midwest Nest featured the sliding doors trend in 2018 and noted that this is not a fleeting fad.
That said, the rustic style that began to trend in the last 2010s does not represent every sliding door. In fact, a rustic look isn’t appropriate for many offices. So, AD Systems door systems come in a variety of styles and finishes. Just a few options include integral blinds and lighting, switchable privacy glass, glazing, and solid panels. Additionally, the door railing and hardware are available in multiple materials and finishes. These top-hung doors roll smoothly, quietly and have no floor tracks.
For security purposes, there are many locking options, including key-card access.
