How To Fit Sliding Wardrobe Doors

 

 

Fitting sliding wardrobe doors is not a particularly difficult task. All you will need is a tape measure, an electric drill and a phillips head screwdriver. Sliding wardrobe doors as a rule come with the running gear already attached so the job only involves fitting the top and bottom tracks and setting and securing the doors into place.

 

Measuring for Sliding Wardrobe Doors

Before you can order your doors and ultimately fit them within your home you must ensure you measure the space correctly. When ordering your doors, the only measurements you will require are the height and width. For the height, take three measurements at regular intervals and provide us with the smallest of these measurements. For the width, take three measurements at regular intervals and provide us with the largest.

 

Ensure you measure very carefully to ensure your doors are the correct size for the opening. Fortunately, if the opening is not perfectly square, the top track can accommodate a variance of 12mm in the height. Similarly, door adjustment can accommodate a variance of 20mm in the width.

 

Installing Sliding Wardrobe Doors

As we said before, fitting sliding doors is not difficult at all. Follow these simple instructions and your doors will be in place and looking great in no time at all. When purchasing doors from Forsyth Glazing, both tracks come pre-cut to size to simplify the process even further.

 

  1. If necessary, cut a section from the the ceiling coving to accommodate the top track.
  2. Position the top track and secure with screws through the pre-drilled holes.
  3. If necessary, cut a section from the skirting to accommodate the bottom track.
  4. Place the bottom track, set back from the face of the top track by 25mm.
  5. Drill hole at suitable intervals along the track and secure with screws.
  6. Lift the doors into the top track and drop into the bottom track.
  7. Adjust the doors by turning the screws on the bottom wheels.
  8. Lock into place with the blue locking mechanism.

 

It's worth taking the time to ensure your wardrobe doors are fitted well. If done right they will last years or even generations with little to no maintenance.
