Sliding wardrobe doors are constructed from a number of different components that affect the look and the performance of the doors. Below we outline the main components of our steel framed sliding doors with profile diagrams and technical dimensions. If you would like to understand how these components are put together please take a look at our how we construct our wardrobe doors guide. You may also find our article the difference between steel and aluminium doors useful.

Steel profiles

These are manufactured from high quality rolled steel and are available either spray painted in a variety of colours or vinyl wrapped with a choice of wood grain effects.

Steel top track (double runner)

The steel top track is available as a double runner. The top track can be installed with either the squared edge or sloping edge with shadow gap facing the front. The shadow gap side is useful if your ceiling isn't straight as the gap gives space between the ceiling and track and disguises any imperfections.

Steel H-bars

This is the steel H-bar which is used in all the door collections apart from the Como Collection. It allows the panels to be divided so that different designs can be created. The steel H-bar can only be used horizontally – please see our bespoke wardrobe doors page for more details.
