Custom Door Project Spotlight: Bet Shalom Synagogue

The beautiful Bet Shalom Synagogue, near Minneapolis, was symbolically designed with the sanctuary at the center of the building.  A beautiful glass, moveable wall system was created to divide their worship area from the common room.

Through close collaboration between Door Engineering, the architects, the engineers and the wall panel manufacturer, Door Engineering developed a door that split   horizontally at the center. With the turn of a key, a uniquely designed operator and track system moved the upper half of the door above the opening into the ceiling and the lower half of door through the floor into the basement. When the   sanctuary wall is closed, a double pass door allows for passage from the sanctuary to the common room.
