    Few Sala Sliding doors pics

    So I am trying this again to add pics to the site.

    We added some sliding glass doors to our upstairs Sala sitting area to keep the birds from flying through and keeping the rain off when we sit there. The guy did an outstanding job.





    He re-positioned the railing outside. Set up the 3 sliding doors. Its tinted dual pane.

    Nice.

    Did you find your Japanese-style downspouts in Thailand?

    Hello Misskit,

    Yes we ordered the downspouts here in Thailand. Wife found in BKK. I was skeptical with the amount of rain that falls here but they function incredibly well and look nice as well.

    I will post some more pictures of the Sala soon.

    Some install pics,

    Originally it was open air. It was fine but the rain comes and wife had to hurry and remove cushions and cover furniture. Plus its nice to sit there, we just wanted some protection.

    Teak railing removed and work in progress

    A great idea, well executed, now no need to put your gin and tonic down when it rains .

    Starting to think my folding doors were a bad idea now!

    Thanks JE. I like we can open as far as we want and need and if the rain sleets at an angle we can close up altogether and still enjoy the sitting area and to your point keep the cocktail in hand.

    As for the folding doors, they are a great idea. Its the equivalent of pocket doors but here to hard too do being walls are solid brick. Like I said I have them indoors for the TV room and really like them. Of course sliding doors are easier.

    They'll carefully wrap and cushion the foot of the metal ladder to save from scratching the fine ceramic surface, yet allow other heavier metal items and associated equipment to lay nilly willy all over the same easily sensitive [to abrasion] surface.

    Very Thai logic.

    Just an observation.

    Looking forward to finished product pics, mate.

    Where did you source the double pane from? Local dude or...?

    So each side has 3 sections of door/glass for a total of 6 sections (across the front) and when open they all slide behind themselves so that there's only 1 section remaining?

    Price and location?

    The glass was ordered in BKK. Took 2 weeks. 10 year warranty (ALbeit warranties in Thailand mean very little but I knew that going in)

    Actually the 6 sections are as you noted except that it opens in the middle and 2 door panes slide left and 2 slide right. I wasn't fond of the 6 stack if you will. This way you can open any side and only have to slide 2 doors.

    Company is in Chiang Mai. Total with materials, install and rail removal and re-installed was ~80K baht. (Can be done cheaper if you do not want tempered tinted glass)
