Explore innovative concepts for hidden rooms and hidden shelves using Sugatsune hardware.
Tip 1. Handleless hidden sliding door
POINT：The wall and the door blend together
POINT: A gentle push slides the door open, eliminating the need for a handle.
POINT: Creates a sleek and clean look by eliminating the need for rails or grooves on the floor.
POINT: Successfully passed our 100,000 open/close cycle test, ensuring durability.
Utilizing the Monoflat Unison MFU1200 allows you to craft a handleless concealed sliding door that seamlessly disguises itself until pushed open.
Ideal for entrances to wardrobes or private spaces that individuals prefer to keep hidden.
Furthermore, by adopting the dual soft close mechanism, the door opens and closes slowly and quietly, thereby imbuing a sense of luxury during door operation.
Selected for achieving a sleek and modern entrance area, our concealed door hardware was the ideal choice.
Tip 2. The hidden door is also suitable for use in compact spaces!
POINT: The door slides laterally in a compact radius, requiring less space compared to traditional swing doors—efficiency in space utilization!
POINT: The door opens by sliding sideways in a smaller radius so it can be used in narrow spaces.
POINT: Supports a maximum door height of 2980mm, width of 1100mm, and weight of 90kg.
Monoflat LIN-X Hinge LIN-X1000 is an arm-type flat door hinge that can accommodate large doors with a door width of 1100 mm and a weight of 90kg.
Depending on the design of the handles, door and wall, you can create a floor-to-ceiling hidden door.
The amount of space required to open the door is smaller compared to a swing door, making it compatible even for outward opening doors in narrow spaces such as in corridors.
Enhance design possibilities with the flexibility to choose from options like single or double door openings.

Tip 3. Add push-to-open functionality to handleless hidden doors
For simpler hidden door construction, a combination of a magnetic latch and a concealed swing-door hinge are recommended.
The metal magnet latch ML-ZN80 has a strong push force, making it suitable for large doors. Furthermore, by using the HES Series Concealed Hinges, you can create a flat door with the hinge axis unseen when closed. Useful not just for hidden entrances, but also for a broad range of uses, including storage closets beneath staircases.
