Size Guide

Choosing the right sliding pocket door

Sizing a sliding pocket door system is very easy:

  • Step 1: measure the available space

  • Step 2: choose the standard pocket door frame size that will fit the space

  • Step 3: if you need a wider passage width, consider a couple of alternative options

Here below, the ECLISSE Single model is used as an example.

Calculating the dimensions



Step 1

Measure the rough opening (RO) you have available.
The pocket door frame needs to be able to fit within this space.

Tip: Make sure to measure from the finished floor level since that is where you will need to install the ECLISSE frame from.

Choosing the right pocket door - measuring the space



Step 2

Look at the sizing table and decide which frame size will fit within the available space to help determine which size door you will use with the frame.

The frame kit size you should purchase should be the same as the door panel size being used on the opening.

Step 3

If you want a larger passage width or door size than those provided by the fitting frame size, you may consider a couple of different options.

Alternative solutions

Consider switching the side that hosts the pocket, if you want to keep the doorway where you planned to have it, but you don't have enough space on the side you chose in the first place.

Or, in order to have a larger passage width a single telescopic system could be you best choice. Check the ECLISSE Telescopic model page!



Stud walls and Size

It is important you understand this section as there is different size stud walls with standard being 2x4 and 2x6.
Stud walls are made up of wooden or steel studwork with drywall attached.

The steel framework takes the place of the studwork and the doors are hung from the top track. ECLISSE pockets can be used with steel or wooden studwork. In the photo you can see from one side what it looks like before installing the drywall.

Studwork size

There are many different sizes of stud work, ECLISSE has all of them!

Studwork (S)Internal Passage (IP)
3-1/2"2-3/8" (2x4)
5-1/2"4-3/8" (2x6)



Adding the drywall to the studwork you will reach the required finished wall thickness dimension.
Here an example:

  • 3-1/2" stud work plus 5/8" drywall on each side gives a finished wall thickness of 4-3/4"

  • 5-1/2" stud work plus 5/8" drywall on each side gives a finished wall thickness of 6-3/4"
