Reviews of Eclisse pocket doors by 3 builders who use them.

Posted by Caroline Clarkson on 17th Aug 2017

Pocket doors are increasing in popularity in the UK but there are still quite a few people, builders included, who are not that familiar with pocket doors, and others who don’t realise how versatile they are.

So we thought we would give you a little introduction on the ease of installation and versatility  of our pocket doors and and then let three of our customers Griffinworks Ltd, Black Oak Builders and BCS Builders do the rest of the talking.

Pocket Doors - more versatile than you think

If you think pocket doors only have a limited amount of uses e.g. as a toilet or utility door, think again…

  • You can combine an Eclisse single pocket door system or a double pocket door system with a door from our stunning Karis glass door range. This will make the most of the natural light in your home and add an interesting interior design feature. See our glass pocket door range here.
  • Maybe you wish to divide two rooms or to close off an open plan space? Our double or telescopic sliding pocket door systems provide the perfect solution.
  • Perhaps you want to add a wow factor to your interior? The Eclisse stunning curved pocket door systems will make a design statement in any home building project.


Eclisse Pocket Door Systems– designed with the installer in mind

Eclisse pocket door systems have been thoughtfully designed to make assembly and installation a straightforward job. Unlike other pocket door brands, we don’t expect you to spend time cutting the steels to size to suit your door. Because we offer a range of sizes that are made to fit standard UK door sizes, you just pick the kit that fits your standard door size.

We also don’t expect you to have to align the track and the pocket when you install our system. Instead the track and pocket assembles together as one complete unit ready to install. Even the door guide has been designed to fit perfectly, dead centre in a matter of seconds.

Read  why not all pocket doors are the same.

Don’t just listen to us, listen to these guys...

We are very proud that we regularly receive fabulous feedback from our customers. Here are just a few builders who, without prompting, took it upon themselves to give us some great feedback on social media recently, so we contacted them for a bit more information about the projects they used our systems for.

We ask Daniel from Griffin Works what he thought of our products after using them on a recent job.

“I’ve used Eclisse before and seen them in a passive house I worked on recently. I like that the mechanism is smooth and not noisy or clunky like other brands”.

Daniel also liked the fact we have installation videos on our website where you can see the frame being assembled and installed into studwork.
