How are sliding wardrobe doors made?
Our sliding wardrobe doors are manufactured from rolled steel frames. These are very strong and robust to give our doors great stability. We use roller wheels on the tops and bottoms of the doors. The top roller wheels are NOT suspended in any way, these are simply a guide to show the doors where to travel whilst keeping them smooth and quiet.
The bottom roller wheels use a unique anti-jump device system so that these cannot fall or jump off their tracks. You need to disable the “anti jump” device if you ever want to remove the doors from their tracks. The glass that we use is 4mm, this glass meets all the UK regulations required for sliding wardrobe doors. They come with a safety backing fitted on the back to keep the doors safe and strong. The panel products we use at Superglide are manufactured from a 9mm laminate chipboard but the best supplier of panel products that we supply originate from Egger.
Can they be painted?
Yes, of course you can paint the sliding door panels but we do advise against painting the sliding doors steel framing. If customers want to go for this effect, then paint is best applied to Primed MDF panels. We can manufacture the doors in this way so they are ready for you to add your own colour. Give us a call on 01793 861584 or email email@example.com to discuss ordering your primed doors.
What do I need to measure for a sliding wardrobe door?
First, you need to measure the width of the wall where you want your wardrobe to be.
Next, you need to measure the floor to ceiling height; you must do this in 3 different places to check for any differences in height.
Even if you have measured the space previously, it’s always a good idea to measure it again before you purchase your new wardrobe.
Some customers may be adding new doors into an existing frame. If that’s the case then, measure from the left to the right that all the doors will cover.
So, this could be the inside of the left frame to inside of the right frame. Then with the height you want to measure the space that the bottom track will mount onto, across to the surface the top track will mount onto.
From there our experienced team at Superglide will double check and calculate in all overlaps, wheels and track tolerances that need to be taken into account before we proceed with manufacturing the doors.
Which style do I need?
Well, what style do you like? Are you looking for a simple design, perhaps you’re looking to add mirrors to open up the room and give it a sense of space or simply let your wardrobes take centre stage in your room?
The style you choose totally depends on what your room is like and your personal preference.

How can I childproof my sliding wardrobe doors?
