Shop Brad: High-Quality Pocket Door Kits
Having a pocket door can help you save space in your home while also offering more privacy between adjoining rooms. These doors are designed to slide into the wall next to a doorway rather than opening into rooms. Pocket doors are a great option when you’re looking to add some flexibility and extra space in one or more areas of your home. A Cavity Sliders pocket door kit provides everything you need to install one of these doors, including the frame and other hardware components.
When you’re looking for a heavy-duty, high-quality pocket door frame kit, Bradley Building Products can help. We offer pocket door kits from Cavity Sliders for residential and commercial use. These kits are simple to assemble, so that you can add a pocket door in any suitable location in your home or business. Unlike other pocket doors, they also feature aluminum extrusions for better durability. Find out more about these pocket door frames from Cavity Sliders.
What Are the Benefits of a Pocket Door?
Pocket doors from Cavity Sliders offer a number of benefits. These doors are a great alternative when you can’t install a swinging door due to space restrictions or other factors. Instead of having a standard door that swings open and closed, you can have a door that slides into the wall. When a pocket door slides out of the wall, it provides privacy for the rooms on either side. This can be useful when you have an open floor plan with little to no separation between rooms, such as the kitchen and dining room. With a pocket door kit, you can add a sliding pocket door to create a quieter and more private environment as needed. Cavity Sliders pocket door frames have a SoftStop soft close upgrade available, which is perfect for these areas.
Standard doors or swinging interior doors take up space and block off parts of a room when they’re open. A Cavity Sliders pocket door hardware kit with sturdy aluminum framing allows you to install a pocket door to use instead. With a pocket door, you don’t have to worry about the door taking up space in a room. These doors slide smoothly and quietly into the wall, where they stay out of sight until they’re needed. In addition to saving space in your home, they can serve an aesthetic purpose. These doors are hidden when not in use, which can give rooms a more open and airy look.
What Is the Difference Between a Pocket Door and a Sliding Door?
Pocket doors and sliding doors, such as a decorative barn door, both slide back and forth to open and close instead of swinging in and out. However, there’s a notable difference between these two types of doors. Pocket doors slide into the wall next to them, while sliding doors slide against the wall without going inside it. Both types of doors can help you save space in your home, but sliding doors require you to have space on the wall that they slide against. When you have a sliding door, you can’t put any furniture or other items along that wall, or the door won’t be able to slide open.
A Cavity Sliders pocket door frame goes right inside the wall, so you don’t have to worry about clearing space along it. However, you’ll need to make space inside the wall in order for the pocket door to fit. This involves taking out drywall and might involve other adjustments, such as rerouting pipes or wiring. Cavity Sliders offers a single pocket door for a standard doorway or a double pocket door for wider doorways.
Can Any Door Be Used as a Pocket Door?
You can’t use any door as a pocket door. For example, thick doors can’t be used as pocket doors, since they’re unlikely to fit inside your wall. Keep in mind that pocket doors also have other features that a standard door doesn’t have, such as pocket door locks. Standard door knobs and other hardware don’t work on pocket doors, so it’s important to get a Cavity Sliders pocket door frame kit, which has the right hardware.
With this pocket door frame, floor brackets, an aluminum track, jamb kit, and other components, you can assemble and install your pocket door without running into problems, such as hardware not fitting or working correctly. Just follow the manufacturer’s installation guide or installation instructions to ensure that you install your pocket door properly. Keep in mind that Cavity Sliders pocket door frames accommodate doors with a thickness between 1-⅜” and 1-¾”.
What’s the Average Cost of Installing a Pocket Door Frame Kit?
The average cost to install a pocket door can vary due to different factors, such as the door size, the complexity of the project, and the type of door you want. For example, installing pocket door systems that involve rerouting wires or pipes is more complex than a simple installation that only requires drywall and stud removal. The more complex your project is, the more expensive the installation will cost. Having a larger door size installed might cost more than a smaller door size. Also, having a single pocket door installed is typically less costly than having a double pocket door installed.
With a pocket door framing kit from Cavity Sliders, you can handle pocket door installation on your own. Unlike other pocket door kits, this type of pocket door hardware kit gives you what you need to put one of these doors in your home or business. Keep in mind that soft close kit options are available, which provide your door with a soft close rather than a standard closing mechanism.
Can You DIY a Pocket Door?
Adding a Cavity Sliders pocket door to your home on your own can be a DIY project, since these frames are simple to put together and install. This involves first determining if the location you’re considering is suitable for a pocket door. If you’re planning to install a pocket door on your own, make sure the wall it slides into isn’t a load-bearing wall. Otherwise, you could end up with serious structural damage to your home. Choose a non-load-bearing wall in your home with enough space to fit a pocket door. Keep in mind that you’ll need to remove drywall and might need to take out studs, redo wiring if needed, and make other changes to accommodate your pocket door.
A pocket door frame kit from Cavity Sliders gives you an easy way to handle this as a DIY project. These kits are easy to assemble and install in either residential or commercial buildings. Cavity Sliders pocket door frames meet Type 1 construction code with no combustible materials. You can also use Cavity Sliders pocket door frames to highlight architectural feature openings.
What Is the Most Common Size for a Pocket Door Kit?
Pocket door sizes can vary. When you’re ordering pocket door framing from Cavity Sliders, you’ll find different models to choose from. You can purchase a pocket door frame kit ranging from a door that’s 3 feet wide by 6 feet, 8 inches high to a door that’s 4 feet wide by 8 feet high. You can cut frames down to fit your rough opening as needed. In fact, these frames can easily be cut down to the size needed right on site. The experts at Bradley Building Products can guide you in choosing the right pocket door kit based on the door width and door height needed.
How Do You Measure for a Pocket Door Kit?
How do you know what size pocket door you’ll need? This depends on where it’s going, the size of your rough opening, the wall materials you’re working with, and whether you’re installing a single pocket or double pocket door. Keep in mind that you should double the amount of wall space needed for installation. For example, you’ll need 48 inches of space for pocket door framing if you have a pocket door that’s 24 inches. If you’re installing a double door, you should double one door’s width and multiply by two. The measurements for double pocket doors can vary, depending on whether they slide and meet in the center of the rough opening or slide on separate tracks. Pocket doors also need a higher header compared to standard doors. Knowing the measurement for pocket doors is important, so that you get the right pocket door hardware kit.
How to Install a Pocket Door Frame Kit
Installing a pocket door kit takes some time and effort. While pocket door framing from Cavity Sliders is straightforward to assemble, you might need to spend considerable time removing drywall and making other changes to the wall before installing the framing, track, and other components. If you’re unsure of the exact steps needed for pocket door installation, you can follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions.
