Do I need door stops for a pocket door system, or are they included in the kit?

Our iMpero pocket door system DOES come with stops in the track, so that’s how you control the door on maximum opening.  And the Hideaway pocket door kit comes with a rubber buffer which you attach to the back of the door.

Do your pocket doors provide any sound insulation between the adjacent rooms (i.e. in the partition itself as well as where the 2 doors meet each other)?

There is no sound insulation material supplied with either pocket door systems we supply (the Hideaway and the iMpero deluxe), but it would be possible to add your own brush strip to the top and bottom of the doors, although this wouldn’t look right on the leading edges.  The wall cavity is going to be fairly good at dampening sound, because the air gap between the stud work will reduce noise transference to some extent.  Other factors to consider are soft furnishings and floor surfaces which all contribute to noise dampening.

Would it be possible to adapt your Hide away system to encorporate a glass door?

Unfortunately there are no compatible glass clamps available for the Hideaway system.  The two alternatives you might consider are the iMpero pocket door system, buying additional glass clamps (+ probably the timber jambs for glass doors), OR buying a Rollan 80G or Perlan 140G sliding door kit for glass and constructing your own cavity supports for the pocket door*.  Links to those pages on our website are highlighted within the text.
* Prices there dependant on the size/weight of the glass door to be used.

Q: Please can you confirm if you have any sliding door kits that are suitable for a kitchen. In particular I am concerned that a kitchen door is normally a fire door. Do sliding doors meet the safety/building requirements for use as a kitchen door and if so which kit should I use?

A: The only fire rated sliding door gear we can offer is the iMpero pocket door fire door kit.  A “normal” (i.e. non-pocket) sliding door could not ever meet fire regulations because of the inevitable air spaces between the wall and the door.
