Using the GEZE Rollan sliding door gear within an opening instead of a pocket door kit, such as the Hideaway or iMpero (building a homemade ‘pocket’ of your own design). Is there a reason why this wouldn’t work?

The GEZE Rollan sliding door gear can be used inside your own stud work to form a pocket door system – quite a lot of people do this in our experience.  The only disadvantage might be that in order to get a nice rigid wall structure you would have to use some strengthening material in the pocket, and this would give you a thicker finished wall.  It is especially appropriate to consider using sliding door track systems instead of pocket door kits when you already have a rigid block or brick wall forming one side of the pocket, then side mounting the track with the brackets which come in our GEZE Rollan & Perlan kits.

I’m looking to divide up two rooms in my house. At the moment I have an opening in a studded partition wall 1375mm wide by 2055mm high. My question relates to the Hideaway pocket door system; is it possible to retro fit the system to a wall which is already completed or can it only be fitted to a frame specially built to suit the system?

It is possible to retro fit a Hideaway kit by opening the stud walling on one side only, but how much work this will be will depend on what you find inside the wall in terms of the structure already there.  In terms of width you’ll need (2 x door width) + 1 inch.

Can you tell me what width the stud walls need to be to house the Hideaway pocket kit please?

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.
