The universe

Not quite Star Trek but pretty close…

The universe

The only thing missing from our Eclisse pocket door is the “Shhhh Shhhh” that crew members get when they walk through a door on the Starship Enterprise.

A project we have carried out renovating what is basically an overgrown shed to turn it into a luxurious hair salon required us to maximise the space that was available. The building is basically an oblong 8 metres by 4 metres with an additional extension of 2.5 metres by 2.5 metres.

We moved the WC out of the extension into the corner of the salon which created a small lobby area into the extension that is now the kitchen. This meant we had a number of doors all opening and closing into each other in a very confined space.

The answer was to install an Eclisse sliding pocket door that allowed the salon to be closed off effortlessly from the lobby and kitchen area. The door disappears in to the “pocket” as the name suggests. A perfect solution for any re-design as pocket doors create extra space in any inside area and remove the clutter and congestion of having multiple doors clash into each other and from blocking the thoroughfare.

The door frame and mechanism comes flat packed and is very simple to put together. The door slides in a metal frame (see picture below) which is made up from the kit that is supplied.

Below is a picture of the frame installed in the studwork and ready to accept the door mechanism.

The picture below shows the door mounted in the sliding mechanism and a flush door handle push pull set (door or handle not supplied) is used to allow the door to be slid open and closed. A normal protruding door handle would foul on the the pocket door frame.

And here is a picture of the finished door looking very smart in the salon.
