How sliding wardrobe doors work

Sliding wardrobe doors are easy to use and make the most of storage space in compact rooms. Used for standalone and fitted wardrobes, sliding doors enable you to place other furnishings closer to the wardrobes without needing to allow swing space for the doors. 

The technology behind sliding wardrobe doors is what sets them apart. Built with hydraulic damping, sliding door dampers ensure the doors close smoothly and silently for the lifetime of the product. Sliding doors open and close consistently, with the damping preventing slamming. 

How sliding wardrobe doors work

The core element of soft closing door systems is the multi-purpose hydraulic damper. Hydraulic damper technology provides soft and silent closing for doors and drawers, with a modular design guaranteeing reliable performance even with heavy doors.
Doors are mounted to runners, with the top track fitted to the ceiling or wardrobe top and the bottom track to the floor or bottom of the wardrobe. Sliding door dampers are compact and installed inside the top or bottom of the cabinet.

 Intuitive positioning and assembly
✓ Compact design for concealed application
✓ Consistent soft closing on doors of different sizes and weights
