All Styles of Kestrel Doors can be used as Sliding Closet Doors?

All Kestrel Interior Doors can be used as sliding closet doors. What makes the interior doors work as sliding closet doors is the hardware. So regardless of what style of interior doors you choose (louvered, panel, mirrored, fabric, tongue & groove or custom door designs ) they can be used as custom sized sliding closet doors.

The advantage of Sliding Closet Doors?

Sliding Closet Doors require the least amount of effort to open. A gentle push to the side opens your sliding closet doors out of the way. And since sliding closet doors do not hinge or fold up into the room there is no concern about your doors hitting furniture.

Why Kestrel Sliding Closet Doors?

Kestrel sliding closet doors are the finest available. Our custom sized sliding closet doors are all hand built from solid, premium hardwoods like Basswood, Spanish Cedar and Mahogany. For construction we use only traditional pegged, mortise and tenon joinery. We also offer the most diverse line of sliding closet doors with such styles as louvered doors, panel doors, interior doors fitted for mirrors, glass or fabric, beadboard doors, tongue and groove doors as well as board and batten. For added stability we even add a center stile on exceptionally wide sliding closet doors.

  •  
  • How many individual doors can I have in a sliding closet door opening?
  • Our standard hardware for sliding closet doors is designed for 2, 3 or 4 doors on 2 tracks. We also offer Johnson's multi-pass hardware that allows for an unlimited number of tracks and doors. For these the number of doors will be limited by their weight and the number of tracks will be limited by the depth of the jamb where they are mounted.
  •  
  • Will the sliding closet door hardware damage my floors?
  • The standard hardware for sliding closet doors that we offer, Johnson Hardware 138F and 134F, do not require a bottom track. Instead they use a guide located where the doors overlap. These guides do need to be secured to the floor with screws and risers are available when used with carpeting. Heavy duty and multi-pass sliding closet door hardware will require a bottom track.
  •  
  • Can sliding closet doors fall out of the tracks?
  • The only sliding closet track hardware we offer comes with tricycle wheel hangers that are either enclosed within the track, or straddle an I-beam, so that they can not come out by accident.
  •  
  • Can I reuse my exisiting sliding closet door hardware?
  • Even if the hardware you currently have is in good condition we strongly recommend purchasing new sliding closet door track hardware. Older track may no longer be safe and it may not be strong enough to hold our solid wood bifold doors.
  •  
  • How many different tracks can I have?
  • This is really a factor of how deep are your jambs were you are mounting the tracks. You can only mount as many tracks as will fit on your jamb.

  • The Johnson hardware for sliding closet doors have quick disconnect clip system that makes it easy to install the doors and remove them if you should need full access to your closet.
