A cavity slider (also known as a pocket door) is a sliding door that disappears into a cavity in the wall framing when open, allowing for clear space on both sides of the connecting rooms.
Cavity sliders are particularly versatile and tend to be used where space is at a premium, a swing door could be inconvenient, or in narrow hallways and small bathrooms where it is difficult to open the door inwards. They are also a great way to separate larger, open plan spaces to create privacy.
Architrave-free doors have become a strong focus of modern interior designs that dictate clean lines and seamless finishes. As creators of the trusted EzyJamb flush door jamb system for swing doors, EZ Concept offers two solutions for achieving flush cavity sliders to perfectly complement this trimless look across all internal doors.
So, let’s compare flush cavity slider solutions:
CavKit: Flush finish cavity slider trims
The CavKit system is made up of steel sections that replace traditional architraves by capping the plasterboard around the door penetration and are plastered in with the drywall to create a flush finish.
This system would be best to use to transform a traditional cavity slider system into a flush architrave-free door.
CavKit is available with two capping options:
- Standard Closer Cap: The door closes into a shallow rebate in the door jamb when closed, to block light and provide complete privacy.
- Optional EzyCap: Similar to traditional cavity slider systems, the door butts up against the flat door jamb. This option is best for doors that are often kept open.
SlideSet: Flush cavity slider system
SlideSet creates a similar flush finished door but is a full system including wall framing, concealed hardware, mounting plates for ‘lift-up’ installation, stoppers with retention device, CavKit and ifloor guide.
