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.

Can I fit the glass door at a later date after the pocket sliding gear has been fitted into the cavity?

With the iMpero there is access built-in to do that, the Hideaway cannot be used with frameless glass.  In fact it is recommended that you fit the gear first, so you can measure the exact size of glass to buy, perhaps by making a template from chipboard.

What & where to buy: Doors to suit Hideaway pocket door gear?

The H30 is the pocket door gear only and you will need to supply the door itself.  Any normal timber door/glazed timber door will be suitable, as long as it’s up to 760mm wide x 2032mm tall x between 35mm and 44mm thick and 56Kgs maximum weight.  These dimensions make it a standard domestic door, which could be purchased somewhere like B&Q, your local DIY shop, or on the internet.
