Moving towards perfection

Back in 1989 sliding doors had a very bad reputation, mainly justified, based on old fashioned systems of tracks hand-built into walls. They were often noisy and wobbly, they jumped off the tracks and had sticky sliding actions – sliding doors were really only used when there was no alternative, they were never considered to be a positive design feature.

It was in January 1989 that Luigi De Faveri established the ECLISSE company, with an idea, a concept and a mission to change all of that. Pursuing an entrepreneurial project that actually started in the 1960s in a metal carpentry workshop, the work of De Faveri has provided over the years a continuous research of advanced industrial systems and allowed the company to compete in a highly selective market.

Since the 1990s, in over 30 years the company has grown by fully committing to research and innovation, as well as valuing the synergy of people deeply involved in the ECLISSE vision. The consistent extension of the product range, combined with the ability to innovate in parallel products and processes, led to a progressive and encouraging development in the Italian market and abroad.

The key to this success was an innovative pocket sliding door system completely integrated in design and operation that meant it was strong, easy to fit and eliminated all of the problems of the old systems. The ECLISSE system initiated a complete re-think of the use of sliding doors by designers and architects, by making more usable space in any project and maximising floor area with no compromise in design.

Today ECLISSE is a leading brand in the production of counterframes for sliding pocket doors and frames for flush and splayed hinged doors, it can produce 1,500 frames per day and has more than 30 representative agencies and 2,000 distributors in Italy, 10 subsidiary companies and more than 20 distributors around the world.


Details make the difference

The best technology for the most advanced sliding pocket door systems. This is how ECLISSE (re)invented the counterframes and frames for top quality efficiency and aesthetics.

The quality of ECLISSE products is experienced both during installation and in everyday use, but it's the details that make the difference, because the design ensuring an easy installation, the perfection of the mechanisms and the excellent aesthetic can be really appreciated only looking at our products closely.

ECLISSE models are unique because they are the sum of state-of-the-art technical details, designed with painstaking care with an only purpose: to hide the door!



Technical insights: the frame for sliding pocket door systems


ECLISSE extractable track

1. Running track (fully extractable)

What happens if the track becomes dirty or wear over time compromising the sliding of the door? Do I have to pull down the wall? Of course not!

ECLISSE looked further and invented the system that allows you to easily extract the rail where the door slides, to clean it or install equipment at a later date. Also you can move the door stopper into the desired position, so you can decide how much the door hides inside the wall. For safety reasons, we makes the door to protrude by 3".


open structure for stud wall

2. Open structure for stud wall

The studwork that supports a wall or partition is an open structure. Why should the counterframe be different?
We looked inside the finished wall and we designed an ad hoc counterframe that is different from the traditional metal sheet pocket

When you screw a metal surface to a frame structure, this tends to bend dangerously reducing the pocket's internal passage and posing the risk of scratching and damaging the door too.
With our stud wall systems, there is no such risk thanks to the anti-flexion dove-tail shaped pre-drilled reinforcing horizontal bars (Patented No. US 11,499,309) designed not to bend when fixing the plasterboard layers.
They are also pre-drilled to ease the screwing.

“Why is it important that the guide is perfectly in the middle?”

The guide is not fixed to the floor, but directly behind the counterframe with two screws, without having to take any measure: this is called self-centering. Thus possible errors in measurements can be avoided and you are not even going to ruin the floor puncturing it.

The perfect centering ensures that the door runs always in the middle of the counterframe, without the risk of touching the structure.

The important thing is the duration in time.

Our 220 and 330 lbs sliding carriages are tested by CSI, IMQ group: after 100,000 opening-closing cycles they still respond perfectly. Translated into time, it is equivalent to about 30 years of peace (UNI EN 1670).

P.S: a wooden door 30"x80" weighs less than 55 lbs on average, with the same dimension, a glass door weights less than 95 lbs.

“How do I install electrical boxes on the wall where there is a counterframe?”

We were the first to think of electricians inventing the system that not only allows to enter directly into the counterframes lights, but to pass the wiring inside our structure.

So we also make happy electricians!


Looking Further

Looking Further

Our responsibility to you

“Looking Further” is the reflection of our philosophy: a promise we repeat every day, a commitment to see what others do not see, the meticulous attention to detail, a willingness to take nothing for granted. The synthesis of our work, what makes us different.

What we do

Our production

Counterframes for sliding pocket door systems and frames for flush and splayed hinged doors are made to be installed inside the wall and allow the door to slide or to guarantee its perfect flushness to the wall.

A counterframe, once installed, becomes part of the wall, but at the same time it must allow for a door to slide properly inside. A frame for flush or splayed door must be resistant, and perfect, so that the hinged door can be closed in line with the wall.

How we do it

Our way of thinking

We started by listening to users and installers, with the aim of developing new ideas and excellent solutions. More than 30 years and 40+ patents later, we have not yet ceased to perfect ourselves.

Our goal is to ensure a reliable, robust and cutting edge product for those who choose ECLISSE. We put our heart and soul.

Only those who choose ECLISSE chooses to a perfect performance, no surprises and no compromises.

Product certifications

The test simulates the most violent accidental shocks through the impact of a 65 lbs soft bag dropped orthogonally from different heights and was carried out on a 40" x 84" sliding door inserted in an ECLISSE counterframe.

When tested according to UNI EN 1527 standard, the ECLISSE runners did not undergo any significant changes after 100,000 opening and closing cycles.
They also achieved the highest level of corrosion resistance (grade 4) after 240 hours in a salt spray chamber (95% humidity, 5% NaCl solution) as tested in accordance with the UNI EN 1670 standard.
