Pocket Sliding Doors
A pocket sliding door uses an extended track which allows the sliding door to nearly disappear completely when opened. Disappearing either into a pocket within the cavity of the wall, or alongside the external wall of the room. Creating the ultimate indoor/outdoor living experience.
Traditionally one drawback of a sliding door, when compared to bi-folding doors was how much the aperture could be opened. Due to the opening sash having to sit behind a fixed pane. However a pocket sliding door changes that. You are able to effortlessly slide open a glazed wall until it disappears from view, leaving a fully opened aperture.

A pocket door is perfect for both large and small applications and everything in-between. A pocket door can help to make a space feel larger, and maximise the light which can fill the room.
There are many different configuration options available, from single sashes for minimal sight-lines, to multiple sashes sliding into opposite pockets. Or combine with an open corner to create a truly spectacular architectural glazing feature.
