    Default Internal sliding door track system exist, similar to a van door?

    Search on this forum hasn't found my answer (normally does), so time to post a question!


    Is there a track system that is similar to a car van sliding door setup - but for an internal sliding door?
    I want to have a track system that has the door slide external on the outside of the wall when open like a barn door (as there will be a built in wardrobe hiding the door when closed), but then closes flush inside a normal door jam with a dog leg in the track system - similar to a van)… if that makes sense? Maybe this is a standard thing, but I don't know the name of it and have unsuccessfully search the internet for it.

    Thanks in advance!
    Cheers,
    Vanda

    Yeah thanks guys. Had a quick look at one of their massive product catalogs and couldn't see specifically what I was after, but will have a better look during the week.

    It's a bit overwhelming isn't it. Our kitchen was built with Hafele stuff but there's no way I would have known what to get if it weren't for the builder.

    How big is your door going to be? Might be an interesting project to head to the auto wreckers, grab some van side door gear and create your own...

    Not big at all, just an internal door probably 720W. Yeah good idea, have started searching ebay auto but was hoping for a turn key solution due to time constraints!
