Pocket doors are a great choice for saving space and creating designer door openings.
The success of pocket doors is due to a few simple factors but mainly that space is so expensive it makes sense to maximise what you have. Pocket doors increase the efficiency of your space by an average of 8%, they fit perfectly with all kinds of furnishing style, are reliable and safe.
In a small room like an ensuite bathroom a pocket door makes a massive difference.
The pocket door kit creates a metal envelope which merges to form an integral part of the wall structure. The kit comes flat pack or fully assembled. Some kits will support the weight of a wall hung radiator or include electrical conduits. The kits fit any wall except load-bearing walls or walls already concealing services.
At the top of the pocket is the rail which the wheels move along. The door is hung from the wheels so the only part of the system that moves is the door.

Opening and closing a door is a simple everyday action that we take for granted. But for wheel chair users this can be awkward, especially in confined spaces. Pocket doors are easier to open and close from a seated position. To make life easier pocket doors can even be electrically operated by a button or hand signal.
