Pocket doors are extremely efficient in that they open into a niche or compartment in the adjoining wall. These grew to be unpopular in the last 150 years due to manufacturers going out of business coupled with the tendency of the doors to fall off the track inside the wall and get stuck. The only means of repair was to break open the wall, which was expensive and usually not something that was done just to repair the door. Modern pocket doors, provided by the Sliding Door Company, offer proprietary technology that keeps the doors from sliding off track. Closet sliding doors share that feature.
Most closet sliding doors are lightweight bypass doors or bi-fold doors. The former provide access to half the closet when opened. The latter take up a little bit of space as they fan out into the room when opened, but provide greater access than the hinged door. Bi-fold also adds an additional aesthetic appeal, depending on how well they are constructed and what kind of design is employed.
The Sliding Door Company provides a wide array of different kinds of closet sliding door types, styles, materials and designs. Sliding Door Company doors are durable, safe, and functional, as well as aesthetically pleasing.
