What Is A Pocket Door?

A pocket door is a type of sliding door that, when open, fits inside a pocket in the wall. This makes the door become “hidden” when it is open. Therefore the door is not visible or in the way of movement, however it can still be shut or locked to provide privacy. Doorstuff supply pocket doors made for timber and frameless glass and also supplies fire-rated door kits. The kits include the track, brackets, runners and stops and, for the fire-rated door kits, intumescent fire seals. The kits contain wall reinforcement to provide structural strength to the wall. We supply kits available for both single and double doors.

What Are The Benefits Of Sliding Doors?

Sliding Doors are a great way to open up space in the home by reducing the need for the space a regular swing door would take up when opened. This allows for more mobility in small corridors and removes the obstruction a swing door can sometimes cause. Sliding doors are also a very attractive and fashionable addition to a home and can come in various styles such as timber doors and glass doors, so it can fit into any home aesthetic. Sliding doors can also be folding or telescopic, which allow for the door to take up even less space in the environment while still being able to cover large doorways.

Spotted – drivers delivering in the snow

Aspray lorry in snow

Spotted – this morning one of ‘our’ delivery drivers (ASPRAY 24) going the extra mile to deliver in the snow.  This chap had parked on a layby at the main road and was setting off on foot up a snowy track into our village carrying his parcels.

What a star – proving they will get to you if at all possible!
