Q: I have a 60cm width cupboard door in bedroom I'd like to make into a sliding door to save space. Please could you advise me if any of your sliding gear is suitable for this job?
May 10, 2010 by EditorA: If the door is less than 9 kgs in weight you could use a Coburn Hush kit, or if the doors are up to 25 kgs you might look at a Coburn Jason kit. The other alternative for doors weighing up to 14 kgs in total is sliding-folding doors, like the Henderson Bi-Fold.
May 23, 2010 by EditorI would like to order some AA45 door closers to replace the ones in my flat, but I don't know how I will be able to fit them. When I tried to remove one of the old ones it was under great tension and I broke it whilst removing. Do they come with some kind of device that takes the tension up whilst fitting? Yes, they come with a small metal retainer which holds the chain out while you fit it.
Which door closer do I need to ensure an internal door at home closes right up shut to stop a cat getting in to the hamsters?
May 25, 2010 by EditorIt would be best to go for an overhead door closer with latching action (which controls the last few degrees of the closing, and is the bit you want to be sure is working right). The lowest price one we do is the Eurospec F2003 at power size 3, which is rather strong for a domestic door, but door closers which have adjustable power settings are more expensive like the Geze TS2000 NVBC (goes down to power 2) or the Geze TS4000 (which goes down to power 1).
Do you also do sliding front doors for flats? The main door into my building is fine, but the door into my individual flat takes up a lot of the hall space when it opens! Do you sell sliding doors that would be safe and secure enough to be suitable for use as a front door, as that would help me immensely.
May 27, 2010 by EditorUnfortunately neither the sliding door gear nor pocket door gear we supply would be secure enough to use on a front door - the only sliding door locks we supply are 3 lever, so your insurance company wouldn't rate them either (should be a 5 lever BS rated minimum). Actually we don't think you ought to put any sliding door there at all, because it cannot meet fire & smoke regulations. Sorry!
