It is very important that you take accurate measurements before ordering your sliding wardrobe doors. Use a spirit level to check the ceiling and floor levels. If the floor is uneven, the doors may slide unintentionally! If either ceiling or floor are not level it is important to level these up before taking the measurements. Our optional bottom and top liners will allow you to level up to 15mm using packers (not supplied). If carpet is fitted compress it down as much as possible; you can lay the bottom track and liner onto carpet.
UNFORTUNATELY, WE CANNOT REFUND OR EXCHANGE PRODUCTS DUE TO INCORRECT SIZES BEING PROVIDED. PLEASE CHECK YOU HAVE GIVEN US THE CORRECT MEASUREMENTS.
2. Measuring Height
The top track system will accommodate up to 15mm in height difference. Measure in at least three places - the centre and both ends eg. at A, B and C.
ALL MEASUREMENTS MUST BE PROVIDED IN MM
All our sliding wardrobe door kits are made to measure, In order for us to manufacture your sliding wardrobe doors to the correct size, we will need some measurements from you, you can fit your sliding wardrobe doors floor to ceiling, wall to wall, wall to end panel or inside a pre-made frame.
Measure the total floor to ceiling height at (recommended) 650mm from the back wall at the three points indicated in the diagram, make a note of the SMALLEST of the three measurements. This will be the measurement we will use to manufacture your sliding wardrobe. Do not deduct any measurements for liners, tracks, etc, these will all be taken into consideration, prior to manufacturing. We do all the maths so you don’t have to. Tips for measuring your opening height correctly: Run a tape from the ceiling to 1000mm down the left or right wall and mark with a pencil. Proceed to then measure from the floor up to the pencil mark,your measurement will be this, plus the 1000mm marked on the wall. To measure in between the two walls you will need a set of steps and a friend to hold the tape to the ceiling, while you read and make a note of the measurement on the other side of the tape at floor level.
IMPORTANT - Use the smallest measurement when supplying us with height measurements.
3. Measuring Width
Check the walls with a spirit level to see if they bow or curve. Our optional strike plate will allow you to level up to 15mm using packers (not supplied). If you have coving and skirting you will need to remove a section of them to slide the strike plate in before installing. Measure in three places top, middle and bottom. Please ensure you measure (A) above any skirting board and (C) below any coving that may hinder wardrobe installation.
Take the measurements as indicated on the diagram, we will manufacture your sliding wardrobe door kit to fit the BIGGEST opening width measurement, this is to ensure correct door overlap on each of your sliding wardrobe doors.We will need the WALL TO WALL measurement, do not deduct any measurements for wall liners from the total width, we will take those into consideration prior to manufacture.
IMPORTANT - Use the narrowest measurement when supplying us with width measurements.
NOTE - both top and bottom tracks are supplied over length to allow you to trim them to exact requirements.
6. General Information
REMEMBER YOU ARE MEASURING APERTURE SIZES, NOT DOOR SIZES. When giving us the measurements enter the smallest width and height dimensions.
IMPORTANT - When measuring allow for the thickness of strike plates and liner If you are looking to order them, if you are installing your own liners to level up the aperture you must measure the aperture within your installed sections. We will not reduce the measurements. Normal overlap on the doors is the same as the handle approx. 35mm – 40mm depending on the profile.
Made to measure, so you have complete freedom to create your sliding doors your way.
