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?

The thing that’s worrying me is that the door is directly under a thick lintel. There’s only 30mm from the top of the door to the underside of the lintel. Is this enough space to fit a TS1500?

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 … Continue reading
