How do Pocket Doors Work?

How do Pocket Doors Work?

Pocket doors were hugely popular in the Victorian era because of their unique opening mechanism which helps to maximise space as the sliding doors disappear into the wall when opened. Pocket sliding doors are the perfect new door system for homeowners who want to create unobstructed views or their living space without having to build a whole new room. Being sleek and stylish, sliding pocket doors can enhance the appearance of any property and can boost years of smooth functionality for the homeowner. Our sliding pocket doors remove all sightlines whilst maximising space as compared to traditional hinged doors, pocket doors eliminate the need for a swing radius that opens outwards as the sliding door becomes hidden in a compartment in the adjacent wall.

 

Whilst sliding pocket doors work in a similar way to traditional sliding doors, the difference between them is that the track for the sliding pocket doors is extended into the inside of the wall, so that the glass panel of the sliding door is fully hidden when the door is opened. Pocket doors can have the illusion to blur booth types of living spaces as it hides away neatly. Pocket doors are commonly used now in modern and traditional homes to give an architectural effect whilst opening up additional space, giving a clean and minimalistic appearance that attracts those who have limited amount of space. 

 

Our pocket sliding door has an extended track that manoeuvres and becomes hidden into a wall cavity. Therefore, such home improvement needs to be considered early on in the project to ensure that the building wall structure allows for pocket doors to be inserted. Pocket doors help to provide a solid barrier between rooms as they simply just slide open and close that easily can be divided just as quickly as they can be connected. With endless choices, you can easily tailor your pocket door to your own personal style, build and budget and soon after realise that these inventive doors allow you to do so much more with the space that you have. You are able to create privacy when needed and open up living spaces to almost create an open plan like living space, meaning there’s no necessity to build an extra room when you can simply create one with a pocket door.

 

The pocket doors here at Glideline can help reduce noise by simply sliding pocket doors to close for extra added privacy and can promote tranquillity by having a peaceful environment for you to relax in.
