Q: Is it possible to cut the Jason track myself to suit a particular size door?

A: Yes, the Jason sliding door tracks are easy to cut down with a junior hacksaw.

I have built 2 wardrobes, originally I was intending to hang 2 x 444mm doors on each carcass using standard sprung hinges. Unfortunately this would leave no space between the wardrobe and the bed, therefore I am now looking at a sliding door system. I need a system which will fulfill my dimensions and provide tracks for both top and bottom, along with all other hardware in terms of rollers etc. Please could you advise on a suitable system which would provide everything I need?

As long as your doors are no more than 25kg each and 12mm minimum thickness, then we would recommend the Jason sliding door gear: 4J – 2 door kit 1200mm (47″) which you can cut down to size.  This will give you bottom running track with the wheels and a top guide track to allow the 2 doors to run past each other.

I am using 2120mm high doors (PVC edged – 18mm board) at 560 wide. This is above the max height recommendation of 2m for the ‘twin 60’, will this be ok? As a matter of interest (for future reference) would I be able to use the ‘Jason Bottom Rolling Sliding Door Gear’ for doors of 2120 x 560 (18mm). Again I am aware that the height is well above the recommended 1.5m but I believe that the weight of the doors themselves would be less than the max 25kg stated.

The maximum dimensions of doors for Twin 60 and Jason recommended by the manufacturer Coburn is a guideline only.  According to Coburn’s technical department, it was laid down by the original designer of the system and any evidence & reasoning for them has been lost to time.  The weight is by far the most important measurement of the door.  If your doors are MDF then, at 2120 x 560 x 18mm, your doors should weigh approximately 17 kg each.
