A "Tunnel Door" is a sliding door designed for no overhead obstruction that rolls on the floor rather than hanging from a track. A "Tunnel Door" can be retro-fitted to standard sliding door openings.
Doors for WireCrafters Style 840 wire partitions are designed to be installed with door posts. These posts allow stock hinged and sliding doors (except Dutch style doors) to be universal - mounted inside or outside swing/slide, and left or right handed.

You can add a ceiling to your cage or enclosure at any time. However, if you are considering adding a clear spanned ceiling, you should plan for it in your original layout.

Yes, we use the same panels for walls and ceilings; there is no difference between the two.
Our standard sweep space for 5'-3 1/4"H & 8'-5 1/4"H barrier is 3 1/4"H. Other sweep space dimensions are available.
Yes, panels can be mounted at nearly any height off of the floor. This does require changing the standard hole layout on the posts; a modification best done in our manufacturing facility.
The sweep space is the open area between the floor and the bottom of the panels. It is designed into the system for housekeeping purposes (i.e. cleaning floors, etc.). A sweep space is not required and determining if one is needed depends on your specific application.
Why are stock heights listed 5-1/4″ taller than the nominal wall height? (i.e. 8’5-1/4″ instead of 8′-0″)
WireCrafters lists the overall height of the partition, which includes a 3-1/4" sweep space beneath the wire partition panels, the 8' panel, and 2" post projection above the wire panels for a total height of 8'5-1/4".

Stock sized panels come in widths of one (1) to ten (10) feet in one foot increments. Mount panels to posts with standard nuts and bolts (provided), or use tek screws. Anchor posts to floor using stud anchors (provided).
