DESIGN GUIDE

Sliding Doors

Our sliding doors are made from premium quality aluminium and using the latest technology offer super smooth and quiet gliding doors. We custom manufacture doors to fit door openings of up to 2100mm high and 3000mm wide. (If your door opening is larger than this, please enquire with us for a special quote).

Depending on the size of the opening, you have the option of double or triple tracks. Sliding doors are designed to slightly overlap each other to provide a seamless look at the same time as concealing your wardrobe interior.

Double Doors

Most custom made wardrobe doors are in pairs/sets and we would recommend this setup for openings between 1000mm and 2000mm wide. A 2 door track is 80mm deep to sit within your existing door jamb. Bottom track is 60mm deep and is set back 20mm from front edge. If you have drawers in your wardrobe, you will need to off-set the drawers from the centre so they make clearance of the sliding doors which are manufactured to overlap each other to conceal the wardrobe behind.

Triple Doors

For door openings between 1500mm and 3000mm wide we recommend 3 doors on 3 tracks for better access to drawers and shelves. A 3 door track system is 120mm deep to sit within your existing door jamb. Bottom track is 100mm deep, and is set back 20mm from front edge. If you have drawers in your wardrobe, you will need to ensure the drawers make clearance of the door opening as sliding doors are manufactured to overlap each other to conceal the wardrobe behind.

Floor Surface

Sliding Doors rely on a hard and level surface for smooth operation. If the floor surface is not level where a door track will be applied, you will need to prepare the surface to be level prior to providing your final measurement. If a floor packer is required for the bottom door track, we will supply a 9mm floor packer free of charge. The packer can only be used on a hard surface where carpet will be applied. Cutting existing carpet is the responsibility of the customer or a professional. Bottom tracks cannot be installed on top of carpet.

Points To Consider

  • 2 doors on 2 tracks allows just shy of half of the wardrobe to be opened.
    This is ideal for wardrobes containing drawers positioned off-centre.
    2 doors are suitable for door opening widths up to 2000mm wide.

  • 3 doors on 3 tracks allows just shy of two thirds of the wardrobe to be opened.
    This is ideal for wardrobes containing drawers positioned off-centre, and in some cases in the centre depending on size.
    3 doors are suitable for door opening widths up to 3000mm wide.

Bottom tracks must be placed directly on a hard surface (timber, concrete etc.). If you are planning on installing carpet, we recommend installing the packer & track prior to carpet.

If there is existing carpet, this will need to be cut, and we will supply a packer to install on the hard surface (the carpet will need to be cut before you take final measurement).

What To Measure

Measure your wardrobe frame opening. You will need to take 4 measurements as below.

  1. Width at the Top
  2. Width at the Bottom
  3. Height on the Left
  4. Height on the Right

Height measurements must be taken from the hard floor surface (not on top of carpet).

Decide how many doors, and what tracks you require, i.e. 2 doors on a double track or 3 doors on a triple track.

Decide on what type of panel and the quantity you require, e.g. 2x mirror, or a combination 1x mirror + 1x white melamine.

Decide on what panel frame and track colour. The track and frame colour options are White or Brushed Aluminium.
