Pocket doors, also known as “pocketing doors” are unique in their design, function, and appearance for they are here one moment then not in the next. A pocket door slides and is either hung or slides on a track on the floor or a combination of both and disappears into a wall cavity when it is not being used.
The flexibility in design and function for custom pocket doors is nearly endless, limited only by your imagination. You will find most applications of these clever doors as interior pocket doors which can easily bee hidden in the concealed pocket door frame inside the wall.
Pocket doors, while they are magnificent in the fact that they can be both stylish and have the ability to fully vanish from sight if need be, must maintain their structural integrity and not warp. If your sliding pocket doors fail to perform to your ultra-high standards and reasonable expectations, it may get jammed or stuck inside the wall cavity, easily causing damage to your otherwise brilliant masterpiece, or even the wall itself.
What good are pocket walls if the large pocket doors they house are inoperable, or even worse destructive when used?
The good news is, you can now build a pocket wood door which will stay perfectly straight and never warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail. That’s right. By tweaking your pocket doors design to include Sing Core inside, you can have perfectly flat pocket doors, even if they are exterior pocket doors made of wood.
Pocket door prices vary across the full spectrum of pricing alternatives, but beware, in the case of pocket doors, be prepared to get what you paid for, because a warped pocket door is pretty much useless, effective and beautiful at the outset, but at the next change of season, maybe not, especially if it is rather large in size.
You may find a double sliding pocket door separating two adjoining spaces, commonly providing or limiting access between the kitchen and the dining room. While the kitchen may have moisture, steam and aromatic delights (or some not so aromatic scents) the dining room can be kept pristine, unencumbered by the goings on inside the kitchen when dining room pocket doors separate the two.
Kitchen pocket doors are an excellent way to conceal what goes on behind the scenes in the kitchen from the vision of guests (or any of the other senses for that matter) as the pocket doors may be designed to look just like a solid wall, and not a sliding door at all, when in the closed position.
Many pocket door installations are purposely designed to be completely transparent as a full structural wall between the two spaces, unless they are in the opened condition, of course.
