Does the sliding doors bedroom doors make sence?

Would sliding bedroom doors in a long hallway be convenient? The fire code seems to require swinging doors. By design it will be closets and can somehow beat it.

And the second question – a transom above the bedroom door for natural lighting of the corridor – is there any sense?



Sliding doors which are not in a paneled enclosure themselves are losing in soundproofing to conventional doors. Closing, by the way, is also noisier than with conventional doors. And good mechanisms are more expensive.

Only for the sake of design, I would not put sliding doors in the bedrooms. And I would weigh twice all the pros and cons if the regular doors when opening interfere / create a danger to passers-by.
