External Pocket Doors

External Pocket Doors

We often get asked if our slimline sliding doors can be manufactured in a way that allows them to slide into a wall and the answer is YES!

Our Exterior Pocket Doors are designed and manufactured by Glideline which allows us to completely hide the panels within the wall.

The benefits of an external pocket door are:

  • Large Panels Sizes
  • Huge Aperture Sizes
  • Slim Sightlines
  • 100% Opening Space
  • Up to 4 panes sliding into 1 pocket

 

Common questions:

  • Can you put a pocket door in an exterior wall?

Yes you can put a pocket door in an exterior wall. The wall will have to be an insulated timber stud wall as a standard block and brick wall has wall ties between the bricks. If you want to construct the building with block and brick then the pocket doors will be installed on the inside of the blockwork and an additional stud wall will be built to conceal the pocket.

  • How do external pocket doors work?

Essentially a pocket door is a sliding door with an extended track that slides behind a wall to neatly conceal the stacked panels. We can manufacture pocket doors with up to 4 panes sliding into 1 pocket.

 

Here is an example of a 1 pane pocket door with a stud wall:
