How do you work out the height of the wardrobe doors?
Fixing the running gear to sliding wardrobe doors
How do you determine the height of the sliding wardrobe doors, putting into consideration the fittings that are attached to them?
Thanks for your question...
The good news is that you don't need to work out this as we always ask customers to provide the opening width and floor to ceiling height and then use this to calculate the required sizes of the wardrobe doors, including the height and width.
We deduct 50mm from the overall floor to ceiling height and make the doors to this measurement. When the bottom rollers and top guides are attached this ensures the doors will fit into the tracks.
It's important when measuring the height that you take enough measurements to get a true picture of the opening. These measurements, especially in older houses can vary quite considerably.
We always work to the smallest ceiling height. Variances up to 20mm can usually be dealt with by adjusting the sliding wardrobe doors using the screw on top of the bottom roller on either side of the door.
For variances over 20mm it's best to use a floor liner and pack it out so that you get a straight flat surface for the wardrobe doors to run on.

Thank you very much for your response, Sophie. the information on the height of the doors was missing but you have elaborated it well. however still about door sizes, what would be the ideal additional space (overlapping space)for each door?
We always allow 40mm per overlap, there's lots of information on this page here about door over laps.
