We are a well stablished company more than happy to help with any of your queries.
What is included in my sliding door kit?
Your kit will include:
What are the maximum sizes you can make the wardrobe kits to?
Your kit will be made to a maximum opening height of 2450mm(Classic, Shaker & Designer ranges) 2550mm (Minimalist and Monaco) and a maximum opening width of 4555mm. If you ceiling height is greater than 2450/2550mm you will have to reduce the opening height to a maximum of 2450/2550mm high. This is the same for the opening width, where if your maximum width is over 4555mm, you will need to reduce the opening width or use two kits instead.
What are wall liners?
Wall liners are strips of 18mm thick by 100mm wide, board material matching the frame colour of your sliding wardrobe doors,they run the whole height of the sliding doors. We recommend you use them for the doors to close onto in those situations where skirting board is present impeding the door to close onto the wall. We recommend you cut a section of skirting board 102mm to allow the wall liner to sit against the wall with the skirting butting up to it. If your walls are not straight or parallel, as you can pack behind them to make your opening perfectly plumb. If your walls are fairly straight, you have no skirting board or you are using your own liners, you might choose not to use them, please let us know as this will affect your door width measurements.

What are bottom liners?
Bottom liners are strips of 18mm thick 100mm wide, board material matching the frame colour of your sliding wardrobe doors, they run the whole width of the sliding wardrobe door opening, between the wall liners. they are designed to run under the bottom track and provide a flat rigid base for your sliding wardrobe doors to run on. We recommend you use the bottom liners if your bedroom floor is carpeted, or not level.
Fit the bottom liner directly onto the floorboards, level it up by packing underneath if necessary and then butt the carpet up to the bottom liner for a professional finish.
It is not recommended to fit the bottom track directly onto carpet, as this can affect the rigidity of the bottom track. For situations where you have solid wood flooring or similar and no carpet, no bottom liner is needed. Should you choose not to use them, please let us know as this will affect the door height measurement.
Bottom liners are delivered to you 2600mm long, for any wardrobe widths larger than 2600mm you will need to use two bottom liners butted together. We will make sure these are included in the order. For more information DOWNLOAD FITTING INSTRUCTIONS
The top track is a double E track which mesures 88.8mm (front to back) with the exception of the MONACO top E track which measures 85mm. Our liners are 100mm deep to allow comfortable room for the tracks and doors to fit within them. The bottom track is less deep: 56.2mm for Linear, Shaker, Monaco and 70mm for Designer and Minimalist door styles (which have a concealed fixing method) The bottom track is always less deep because the doors overhang the bottom track. You should always take into consideration the depth of the top track or Liners if used, as this will be the deepest measurement.
PLEASE NOTE: THE TRACK FACE ON THE SHAKER, MINIMALIST, ELLIPSE AND LINEAR TOP TRACK IS 62.4MM AND HAS A DECORATIVE BEAD ON IT.

Do I have to work out my door measurements?
No, just follow the instructions on the how to measure page, and we will work out all your door measurements for you.
What are measurements A, B, C, D & E?
Measurements A,B,C are the height measurements 2450mm(Classic, Shaker & Designer ranges) 2550mm (Minimalist and Monaco) (Left, mid, right) Your doors will be made to the smallest of the three measurements in order to avoid the doors being too tight. D and E relate to the width (taken at the top & bottom) yours doors will be made to the largest of the two measurements.
Why do we have to select the door size on the order page from a drop down menu which says: DOOR WIDTH IN RELATION WITH MEASUREMENTS D & E?
This a new option that allows us to give you better value for money, we have worked out what door width relates to the total wardrobe width and number of doors selected, which in turn allows us to only charge you for the material you use. There are now two different prices for each 2 , 3 & 4 wardrobe combination, so customers with the smaller width measurements in their chosen number of doors get to make even more savings. (A customer who chooses a two door sliding wardrobe with a total width of 1145mm will pay less than someone that chooses two doors but has a width of 1500mm and so on). By the same token, customers who have wider opening widths, have the option to make their savings by choosing a smaller number of doors.
Do you have a showroom?
Yes, we have a showroom, where you can view and touch all our products just follow the How To Find Us link.
Again, we have physical premises, we do not justify our low prices by not providing the best service available.
What kind of glass is used on our sliding wardrobe doors?
We use 4mm Lacobel glass SAFE/SAFE+ which is painted on the back and features a safety backing film on the painted side (back of the door). The aspect of this film is not perfect and some bubbles may be present. Visual imperfections in the SAFE/SAFE+ safety backing film do not have a negative impact on soft body impact resistance according to EN 12600 or are considered a fault. This safety film is necessary to make the glass, safety glass and it is not visible on the door face.
