contemplate different materials, colours
and styles to co-ordinate with the rest
of the interior, or the type of handle you
would like. These are important features,
but did you know that the traditional
swing door can limit your design choices
when it comes to installing appliances
or picking the perfect spot for that
beautiful armchair you bought?
A great alternative that creates space,
as well as extra charm and character,
is a pocket door system. The unique
PC Henderson sliding mechanism allows
the door to slide to one side and then
disappear into the cavity wall, removing
the obtrusion of a swing door while
providing a distinctive opening.
You can increase the amount of
natural light entering a room by using
timber-framed glass doors. You can
also change the overall feel of a space,
creating a continuous flow of movement
around the room.
Pocket doors are a great talking point,
as they are an unusual feature you can
show off to friends and family. They may
also help to attract potential buyers if
you put your house on the market.
A pocket door
an en-suite area
Single vs double
Particularly good for smaller rooms, such
as en-suites, toilets and bathrooms, as
well as storage areas, including utility
rooms, walk-in wardrobes and pantries,
single pocket doors maximise space
as there is no 'lost' area behind them.
In principle, they are ideal for any area
The perfect space
a bedroom and
ROOMS CAN BE OPENED UP WHEN
SOCIALISING AND CLOSED FOR PRIVACY
WITHOUT BREAKING UP THE SPACE
of your home where the movement of
a swing door eats into the floor area,
taking up valuable space.
Double doors, on the other hand,
are a great way to help direct the flow
of traffic through an open-plan design,
for example between the kitchen and
living room, allowing for flexible living.
In this way, rooms can be opened up
when socialising and closed if privacy is
called for, without breaking up the
space as a traditional door would.
When choosing pocket doors for
your home, make sure you select
high-quality hardware components,
because these will determine the longevity
and functionality of the overall system.
PC Henderson's pocket door hardware
comes with a pre-assembled aluminium
track and header mechanism, plus stud
supports to create the cavity.
An online installation video, along with
complete fitting instructions, ensure
easy and hassle-free installation.
Style and quality
The hardware comes in six variations
to cater for different types of living
spaces, and can take wooden doors
weighing up to 60kg.
A number of extras are also available,
such as soft stops, which allow doors
to gently decelerate into position, and
simultaneous action kits that enable a
pair of double doors to close together
gracefully at the same time.

The company's extensive product range
