Choosing the right pocket door
Sizing a Single Pocket Door System is very easy
Step 1: Measure the available space.
Step 2: Choose the standard pocket door frame size that will fit the space.
Step 3: Perhaps you need a wider passage width? Then you might consider a couple of alternative options.
Using the Classic Single Pocket Door Systems as an example.
Measure the overall wall space you have available. The pocket door frame needs to be able to fit within this space.
Look at the sizing table and decide which frame size will fit within the available space and which size door you can use with that frame.
Example 1: Here is an example for a Classic single pocket door system.
Overall wall space length and height of partition = 1800 x 2300mm
Door panel size = Perhaps you would like to use largest possible standard door panel size to provide the largest passage width possible. From the size chart for the Single Pocket Door System you can see that the widest frame size that will fit the space is 1697mm x 2190mm. This will provide a max. passage size of 800mm x 2100mm and will require you to buy a door 815÷835mm x 2110mm to fit the pocket door system.
Hopefully this has given you the solution you require
If you want a larger passage width or door size than the frame size is providing.
Consider which side you have the pocket. It may be that changing the position of the pocket gives you a better solution. If you require a larger passage width a single telescopic system could give you a possible solution; check all information about this product on page.
Stud walls and finished wall thickness
It is important you understand this section as there are many sizes of studwork around the world. Stud walls are made of from wooden or steel studwork with plasterboard attached.
The steel framework takes the place of the studwork and the doors are hung from the top track. ECLISSE pockets can be used with steel or wooden studwork. In the photo you can see from one side what it looks like before installing the plasterboard.
There are many different sizes of stud work, ECLISSE has all of them!
Check the table below:
European wood/metal studwork for stud wall
Adding the plasterboard to the studwork you will reach the required finished wall thickness dimension.
Here an example (considering the plasterboard is nearly always 12.5 mm thick):
75 mm stud work plus 12.5 mm plasterboard on each side gives a finished wall thickness of 100 mm.
100 mm stud work plus 12.5 mm plasterboard on each side gives a finished wall thickness of 125 mm.
