Example 1: Here is an example for a Classic single pocket door system.

Overall wall space/length of partition = 2000mm

Door panel size  – Perhaps you would like to use largest possible  door panel size to provide the largest passage width possible. From the size chart below for the Classic Single Pocket Door System you can see that the widest frame size that will fit the space is 1888mm x 2115mm. This will provide a max. passage size of 900mm x 2030mm and will require you to buy a 926mm x 2040mm to fit the pocket door system.

Example 2: Here is an example for a Classic single pocket door system where you have a particular door size you want to use.

You may already have an idea of the size of door panel you wish to use. You may want to reuse an existing door or to use a door that will match other doors in your property. Let’s say it is a 826mm x 2040mm door panel.  You can see from the chart below that your 826mm x 2040mm door will fit a frame will an overall dimension of 1688mm x 2115mm (this fits easily into the available wall space of 2000mm). This system will give you a passage size of 800 x 2030mm.
