1. How to measure a room for sliding doors

    STEP 1 - Level up - floor and ceiling

    Use a spirit level to ascertain how level both the ceiling and floor are. If the floor is running out, the doors may roll.

    In this case you will need to consider levelling up the floor before you take your measurements. Our optional bottom liner will allow you to level up 15mm using packers. If you have carpet down, compress as much as possible. You can lay the bottom track and liner onto carpet but be aware you may catch a thread.

    If the height is over 2490mm you can use either liners or end panels, or we recommend building a drop down bulkhead with timber. Our sliding wardrobe systems are bottom rolling so no load bearing is on the ceiling.

  2. Step 2

    Measuring up - floor to ceiling

    The top track system will accommodate up to 15mm variance in heights. Measure in at least three places centre and both sides and always give us the smallest dimension.

  3. Step 3

    Level up - walls

    Check the walls with a spirit level. If they curve or bow, you can use our optional liners with some form of packing to level them up. Optional liners are automatically included in your order, but you have the option to remove them before finally placing the order.

    If you have coving and skirting you will need to remove a section of them to slide in the panel before installing

  4. Step 4

    Measuring up - Wall to Wall

    When measuring wall to wall, measure in three places at the top, middle and bottom. When you record your bottom measurement, always do so just above the skirting board if any is present.

    Step 4

Important test - Remember you are measuring aperture sizes, not door sizes.

Once you’ve measured your width and height in three places, always provide us with the largest width dimension and the shortest height dimension. You do not have to allow for the thickness of liners or end panels, as our software will automatically reduce the aperture size by the correct amount. The normal overlap on the doors is about a frame’s worth.

However if you are installing your own liners, or installing batons to level up the aperture you must measure the aperture within your installed sections
