…Frame Kit is a simple way to increase available space in many domestic applications, particularly dining rooms, en-suite bathrooms, cloakrooms and doors into kitchens. Using a 35mm thick standard domestic timber door, a finished wall thickness of 115mm can be achieved including the wallboards, allowing the door to slide into the pocket within the wall.

From this description, it sounds as if you’re looking for a pocket door system, where the door slides back into a cavity in the stud walling like this photo? We supply two different basic designs of pocket doors - the Hideaway and the iMpero. You can have a look at them on our website at the following links:- A 700mm wide door would be the H30 Hideaway kit, or one of the standard iMpero kits (original, architrave-free etc.)

As a bit of Christmas fun, we thought we’d share the discovery of a secret POCKET DOOR behind a wardrobe in the Sleeping Giant Inn, Riverwood, Skyrim. To find it you’ll have to be on the quest for the “Horn of Jurgen Windcaller”, but if you fancy having one in your own worldly abode, you can buy them here:-

A: Yes, it is possible to fit a Hideaway pocket door system from one side only, we are aware of customers who have done this successfully, although your finished wall thickness will be slightly more than the 115 - 120mm shown in the specifications. How easy the project is may depend on what you find inside your existing wall when you remove the wallboards.

Used on double doors sliding on one track, meeting together in the middle and opening to give a wide access space, the doors are connected to each other via a toothed belt so that, when one door opens (or closes) the other door mirrors it automatically, so the doors open together and close together, but only one door leaf is pushed or pulled. There are simultaneous opening kits available as optional extras to both the Geze Perlan sliding door gear, and the iMpero double pocket door system.

The problem with most large/projecting disability handles is that they won’t suit pocket doors without severely restricting closure of door and hence clear opening size. We don’t have space to make the door wider to compensate. Is there anything suitable?
We supply a pocket door bathroom lock set, which includes a mortice lock for the door, flush thumbturn & release for the door (allowing the door to retract fully into the wall) and an end finger pull (fitted into the end of the door).

A: (from Doorstuff) You only need to use it if the door is between 36 and 44mm thick. Without the cavity widening kit, your finished wall thickness will be 115mm, however you can use the cavity widening kit to increase your finished wall thickness to 120mm whilst using a 35mm thick door (all based on 2 x 1/2″ thick plasterboards). It is included in the kit.

A: We supply two designs of pocket door gear, the iMpero pocket door gear is the best one as far as wall reinforcement, engineering of mechanism, range of sizes, optional extras etc are concerned, and the Hideaway is the best one if you’re on a tight budget, still well made and versatile.

The finished wall thickness outside the Hideaway pocket door kit will be 115 - 120mm (depending whether you use the packer which comes in the kit or not). This assumes 2 x 12.5mm thick wall boards are used.
