Rethinking Pocket Doors
Hallways can be tight, furniture can impinge, or you simply want a door to disappear out of sight when not in use. All of these are good reasons to utilize a sliding pocket door system. The idea of pocket doors might invoke images of heavy wooden doors with noisy or difficult to use hardware. Raydoor has brought the idea of a pocket door forward, with smooth and quiet hardware that is trouble and maintenance free. And being a Raydoor system, you can opt for translucency so that even when you want privacy, you won’t have to choose between that and light! Functioning much the same way as our single sliding doors do, sliding pocket doors can be used by themselves or in symmetrical pairs for larger openings. For even larger openings yet, take a look at our sliding pocket walls that act as room dividers when you want them and disappear when you don’t.
No Floor Track Needed
As with most everything we offer, we are able to avoid a floor track when most other manufacturers require one. For those that insist, floor track is available, but for those that agree with our philosophy that a seamless transition from one room to the next can help visually connect spaces (while avoiding a floor track that would collect dust and debris), we have devised a unique solution. Raydoor pocket doors eliminate the need by handling the guiding of the door with a floor guide that exists only in the pocket. As the door extends outward from the pocket, special fittings at the back (or trailing part) of the door maintain their connection to that concealed guide, giving stability and preventing swaying of the panel. This same solution eliminates the need for a “stop” at the back of the pocket, reducing the chance of ever needing to service the door. Not magic – just experience and thoughtful design.
