Pocket Door FAQ’s

Can you put a pocket door in any wall?

In theory, pocket doors can be installed in most walls, but there are some things to consider:

  • The wall should be structurally sound to support the weight of the pocket door frame, door panels, and any additional hardware. Load-bearing walls may need additional reinforcement to support the pocket door system.
  • Pocket doors require a certain amount of wall thickness to accommodate the door panels when they slide into the wall cavity. The thickness of the wall will determine the type of pocket door system that can be installed.
  • Before installing a pocket door, it’s essential to check for any obstacles within the wall, such as electrical wiring, plumbing pipes, or structural elements. These obstacles may need to be relocated or modified to make room for the pocket door system.
  • Consider the accessibility of the wall space where you plan to install the pocket door. Walls with existing utilities or structural components may be more challenging to work with and may even need additional planning and modifications.
  • Ensure that there is enough clearance on both sides of the wall for the door panels to slide open and closed without obstruction. Furniture, fixtures or other obstacles near the door opening may need to be relocated to accommodate the pocket door.

While pocket doors can be installed in many walls, it’s essential to carefully assess the specific requirements and limitations of your space before moving forward with the installation. Speaking to a professional contractor or installer will help ensure that the installation is done correctly and safely.

Do pocket doors require thicker walls?

Yes, pocket doors typically require slightly thicker walls compared to traditional hinged doors.

This is because pocket doors slide into a cavity within the wall when opened, so there needs to be enough space to accommodate the door when it is fully open. The amount of additional finished wall thickness required depends on the specific pocket door system and the size of the door, but it is generally around 4 to 6 inches.

However, there are some slimline pocket door systems available in the market that require less wall thickness, making them suitable for both new constructions and retrofitting in existing walls that have limited space.

On the other hand, telescopic pocket sliding doors will require wider wall cavities due to the fact there are multiple door panels to retract.

Can pocket doors be retrofitted into older homes?

Yes, pocket doors can be retrofitted into older homes with some modifications to the existing walls. Retrofitting pocket doors involves cutting into an exisiting wall to create space for the door to slide into when opened.

How much do glazed pocket doors cost in the UK?

On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from £500 to £2,000 or more per door system for glass pocket doors, excluding installation costs.

The overall cost of glazed pocket doors in the UK can vary depending on several factors. The brand, quality, size, style of door panels and whether they’re being retrofitted and what remedial work is involved will all have a bearing on the overall cost.

High-end or custom-designed pocket sliding glass doors may cost even more. It’s essential to consider additional expenses such as installation, hardware and any customisation options when budgeting.

Can you make pocket doors soundproof?

Yes, it is possible to make pocket doors soundproof to some extent, although complete soundproofing may be challenging. Here are some techniques to improve the soundproofing capabilities of pocket doors:

Choose a solid-core door: A solid-core pocket door rather than a hollow-core one can help reduce sound transmission. Solid-core doors are denser and provide better sound insulation.

Use soundproofing materials: Apply soundproofing materials, such as acoustic foam or mass-loaded vinyl, to the surface of the door or within the wall cavity to absorb sound vibrations and reduce noise transmission.

Seal gaps: Seal any gaps or cracks in the wall cavity, door frame, or surrounding areas with acoustical caulk or sealant to prevent sound leakage.

Install a door sweep: Attach a door sweep to the bottom of the door to create a barrier against sound and drafts, which will further improve soundproofing.

While these measures can help with soundproofing pocket doors, complete soundproofing may not be achievable, especially in highly noisy environments. However, following some of these will definitely help reduce unwanted noise and create a quieter living space when needed.

Can double pocket doors be fire-rated?

Yes, double pocket doors can be fire-rated. Fire-rated pocket doors are designed to meet specific fire safety standards, most often this is FD30, which means they’ll provide a minimum of 30 minutes protection against the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire.

When it comes to double pocket doors, it’s essential that the entire door assembly, including each door panel, door furniture and the pocket sliding door kit itself, is designed and tested to meet the required fire rating. Not all fire-rated door panels are suitable for use with a pocket door kit though, so it’s important to make sure you choose the right ones so you’re fully protected.

If you’re unsure which double door panels are suitable, please get in touch.

As well as buying from reputable manufacturers, It’s also important to work with experienced professionals for the installation, who should ensure that your double pocket doors meet all necessary fire safety standards and building requirements.
