FAQ: Fitting Sliding Doors

Whether you’re fitting sliding doors for a built-in wardrobe or as a room partition, our range includes a number of styles and finishes. If you’re struggling to find the right solution for your space, our sliding doors FAQ page can help answer some common questions.

How do I figure out what size doors I need?

When measuring the space you want to fit with sliding doors, you’ll need to tell us the depth, height and width of the space. Measure the depth of the opening in two places, allowing at least 620mm for interior wardrobe systems. Then, measure the height in three evenly spaced locations across the opening. Finally measure the opening width near the top and bottom.

With these measurements, we’ll be able to tell you how many sliding doors you’ll need using our wardrobe configuration tool. You can find more detailed guidance on measuring up in our instructions.

What tools and materials will I need?

To fit sliding doors, you’ll likely need the following tools:

  • Pencil
  • Tape measure
  • Power drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Spirit level
  • Allen key

Be sure to check the instructions for your specific project.
