When one door shuts another slides open

In the past few years there’s been revolution in the way sliding pocket doors are used in new homes. And a fundamental change to the way home buyers perceive them.

In association with

Pocket doors are desirable. Buyers want them in their houses; they look good! Some might even say ‘Space Age’, as the door glides invisibly into the wall to give an extra wow factor.  Both developers and architects see the advantages of contemporary pocket door, no longer a substitute, but a positive choice:  a sleek, strong, dependable system that’s simple to install, and an alternative to traditional hinged doors. 

And then there’s space. In an average house you can liberate an extra 8% of space using pocket doors, a factor that really counts in new developments; with the ability to transform layout options and making it all possible. And then there’s the ability to make space you have more adaptable:  a sliding door can convert a room from large open plan to two small and intimate spaces in seconds. Flexibility is a valuable asset in today’s homes.

Eclisse have played a major role in changing how people think about sliding doors by constantly innovating and reacting without losing sight of our core values of durability and quality.  Every day, all around the world, from Brazil to Switzerland our pocket door kits are being installed in new developments.
