Aluminium wardrobe sliding doors

Start designing your sliding wardrobe doors

Sliding wardrobe doors are made from a number of different components that affect the look and the performance of the doors. Below we outline the main components of our aluminium 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.

Aluminium profiles

These are constructed from extruded aluminium (6063 and 6061 grade) which is then anodised or powder coated to provide a range of finishes including Anodised Silver, Olive Gold, Gloss White or Matte Black.

Aluminium top track (double runner)

This is the two runner top track. The top track can be installed with either the three line profile or the 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.

Aluminium frame / stile

This is the profile of our aluminium frame / stile and is used for the sliding wardrobe doors, room dividers and sliding doors as the symmetrical shape enables it to be used from both sides. This profile is available in anodised silver, gloss white, matte black and olive gold.
