Questions and answers

Can I purchase a storage system to go behind my wardrobe?
Yes, we have two different storage systems, Aura and Relax.

 

Will the storage system work on a sloping ceiling?
The stanchions are not designed to fit onto an angle surface, but you can use the floor to wall system to fix onto the wall below a sloping ceiling.

 

How high and wide can my wardrobes go?
All of our doors are made to measure. Our sliding doors are made according to the overall height and width of the actual aperture in which you wish to install the system. The maximum height is 2480mm and the maximum width is 4555mm.

 

What is the storage system made of?
The stanchions are high grade aluminium, which is anodised satin silver. The metal accessories are either aluminium or die-cast zinc whilst the drawer units are made of FSC® certified MFC (melamine faced chipboard).

 

What weight will the clothes hanger bar and the MFC shelving take?
The hanger bar will take up to 60kg of weight, offering plenty of strength to support all of your clothes. The MFC shelving will take the weight of a 26" TV. This is equivalent of up to 30kg.

 

What is a liner?
A liner is a piece of MFC (melamine-faced chipboard). This will match your choice of sliding door frame. The purpose of a liner is to act as a floor plate for the bottom track as well as a wall liner where the sliding doors will meet the wall. Our liners are 90mm wide, 18mm thick and approximately 2800mm long. They are not compulsory - and you can delete them from our order sequence if they are not required – however we’d always recommend using a liner to make the installation even easier

Questions and answers

Are the products safe?
Absolutely. All glass and mirrors are safety backed to BS 6206 part B. Our products go through extensive testing by FIRA.

 

What does the product warranty cover?
The warranty covers all moving parts of your sliding doors and room dividers.

Questions and answers

Are the doors difficult to install?
Our doors are easy to install.  All you will need is a spirit level, tape measure and pozi drive screw driver, as well as possibly a hacksaw if you need to cut the stanchions or shelves down to size. We’d always recommend at least two able-bodied people to carry the doors and install them.

 

How long will it take for my sliding wardrobes to be delivered?
Once we receive your order, we aim to deliver within 21 days depending on product specification. Our delivery partner HDS will contact you to arrange a time slot closer to the delivery date, at which point they will take your delivery right to the room of your choosing.

Questions and answers

What is an end panel?
An end panel is the side of the wardrobe. Whilst you may wish to have one side as an existing wall in your bedroom, you can use an end panel on the other side to determine the width of your wardrobe. Our end panels are made from MFC (melamine-faced chipboard) and can be specified to match your chosen wardrobe frame.  They are supplied in a standard size* which can be cut to perfectly fit the height of your bedroom ceiling.

*H: 2800mm x W: 620mm x D: 18mm

 

What does wall to wall, wall to end panel, and end panel to end panel mean?
Wall to wall means your wardrobe doors will be fitted in an existing niche between two walls. If you don’t have a niche, you can create one by using end panels. You can do this from an existing wall to an end panel (wall to end panel), or use two end panels to create your wardrobe space (end panel to end panel).

 

What is a liner?
A liner is a piece of MFC (melamine-faced chipboard). This will match your choice of sliding door frame. The purpose of a liner is to act as a floor plate for the bottom track as well as a wall liner where the sliding doors will meet the wall. Our liners are 90mm wide, 18mm thick and approximately 2800mm long. They are not compulsory - and you can delete them from our order sequence if they are not required – however we’d always recommend using a liner to make the installation even easier.

 

What is an aperture?
An aperture is the area that your doors will be fitted into. It is the width (A), height (B) and depth (C) of the space where your sliding doors will be.

 

What is the difference between room dividers and wardrobe doors?
Room dividers have a different frame system. As the room divider will be seen from both sides, they are made with a frame that hides all the fixings. The door frames are Satin Silver anodised aluminium and you have the opportunity to choose a different colour for the front and the back, rendering both sides aesthetically pleasing. With a wardrobe system, the wheels and reverse of the panel are exposed within the interior of the wardrobe but concealed from view.
