​ECLISSE Celebrates its 30th Anniversary of Producing Pocket Door Systems by Opening New State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Facility

Posted by Caroline Clarkson on 16th Oct 2019

As a leading world-wide manufacturer of pocket door products ECLISSE have been perfecting the pocket door system for 30 years. In 1989 ECLISSE took the concept of the sliding pocket door and redesigned it with an emphasis on ease of assembly and installation. Over 30 years of research and over 40 patents have resulted in a wide range of competitively priced, high-quality ECLISSE products to suit a range of requirements.

The ECLISSE manufacturing base is in Treviso, Italy and its reach is truly international with a vast network of subsidiaries and distributers across the globe. So, it is unsurprising to find ECLISSE as the brand of choice for multi-million pound development projects across the world as well as here in the UK. 2019 has truly been an exciting year for the Italian manufacturer which officially opened its new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in October.

The 800 plus guests, comprising of local dignitaries, employees and distributers, who attended the Grand Opening were treated to a tour of the new facility followed by an evening of fine dining and entertainment to celebrate the achievements of ECLISSE and the De Faveri family, the owners of the company.

The new factory in Via Giovanni Pascoli extends over an area of 20 thousand square meters, an area previously occupied by a former abandoned furniture factory. Today the production of a standard pocket door frame requires on average 1 minute and a half of processing along a 50-meter production line. An average of 11,000 profiles and 1,500 frames are produced every day, thanks to the work of 90 specialized employees.

                                                     

At ECLISSE UK, we are the subsidiary responsible for the UK and EIRE, work with and supply many of the country’s leading architects, house builders, developers and contactors and have recently supplied some highly prestigious construction projects including Chelsea Barracks, Islington Square and Westminster Quarter.

2019 has also been an important year for us too. Our 100 m2 London showroom became fully operational in January this year, followed shortly afterwards by the launch of a new RIBA accredited CPD programme entitled ‘The Future of Doors’. The showroom based in the Business Design Centre, London with its full-sized displays gives home-owners, architects, specifiers, project managers and developers the chance to see ECLISSE products installed and working, alongside part finished displays demonstrating how they are installed.

ECLISSE products are widely used in cutting-edge commercial and hospitality spaces, but also popular for residential homes and apartments. Saving space within a development has never been so important, and whilst pocket doors are a little more expensive to install than traditional hinged doors, they deliver a clear monetary benefit by increasing usable space. With pocket doors you can gain up to 8 sqm of usable space in a 100 sqm layout simply because the door retracts into a pocket in the wall and this can make a real difference to layout options.

For contemporary settings or interiors where it is important to maintain the balance of the interior design, we have a collection of concealed frame products (that do not require finishing with decorative architrave) and includes both pocket doors and hinged doors. Our Syntesis ® Flush concealed frame pocket and hinged doors allow the door to become less of a feature in the overall interior design opening up layout and design possibilities.

Comprehensively and independently tested to European standards for durability and robustness, our products also come with a 15-year guarantee, which is yet another reason why we are constantly being specified by leading architectural practices and contractors.
