Cavity sliding doors are a fantastic space-saving solution that adds a touch of elegance and functionality to any interior design. When it comes to selecting jamb options for pocket door systems, there are several choices available, each with its unique features and benefits. Below, we will explore the various jamb finishes and their ideal use to help you make an informed decision for your project.
Architraves are the standard setup for cavity units, providing a classic and seamless look when paired with side-by-side swing doors. The jambs, heads, and closing jamb are designed to be fitted with architraves supplied by others. The architrave height matches that of standard swing doors, ensuring a consistent and harmonious appearance throughout the space. This option is excellent for traditional or contemporary interiors where a timeless and elegant finish is desired.
2. EzyJamb CavKit
If you’re looking for a high-performance and streamlined installation process, the EzyJamb CavKit is an excellent choice. Manufactured from durable steel, the metal frames trim and cap the plaster edges around the door penetration. The cavity jambs are made smaller than standard, which makes wrapping over the plasterboard easier. This system pairs perfectly with our purpose-made EzyJamb flush finish system, providing a sleek and modern look, ideal for minimalist and modern interiors.
3. P25 Stopping Angle
The P25 Stopping Angle option is designed to achieve a clean and square stop finish to the door jamb. The jambs are made 3mm wider to sit flush with the P25 angle (supplied by others), which is troweled in and painted. This setup is perfect for expressing the jamb or creating an extra thick reveal. It allows you to showcase the beauty of bolder door jambs, particularly suitable for hardwood finishes that you want to highlight as a standout feature in your interior.
4. P50 Shadow Line
For those seeking to add a touch of uniqueness and dimension to their doorway aesthetics, the P50 Shadow Line option is an excellent choice. The jambs are made slightly wider to align with the metal P50 shadow line angle (supplied by others). This unique shadow line design creates a striking visual effect around the doorway, making it a focal point of the room. The P50 Shadow Line is perfect for contemporary and artistic interiors, where attention to detail matters.
5. Full Width of Hallway
When you have a pocket door system where the door spans the entire width of the hallway, you can opt for the Full Width of Hallway jamb option. This configuration involves shortening the pocket length by the lining thickness, allowing the plaster/lining to run over the face of the split jambs. The result is a seamless finish where the door appears to slide out of nowhere when opened. This setup is perfect for maximizing space and creating a clean, unobtrusive look.
Additionally, the steel rebated fast cap can be supplied, providing a 10mm rebate for the door to close into, adding an extra layer of sophistication.
6. End of Hallway
Similar to the Full Width of Hallway option, the End of Hallway setup is used for cavity units situated at the end of a hallway. One side of the jamb will have the lining finishing over the face, while the other side will be finished in a standard manner. This configuration ensures a clean and polished appearance on the lining side while maintaining functionality on the other.
7. Custom Jambs
For those seeking personalized and unique finishes, the Custom Jamb option offers endless possibilities. Whether you desire thicker jambs, wider jambs on one side, express setups for skirting, or matching timber to blend with surrounding joinery, this option allows you to achieve your vision. Custom jambs are ideal for bespoke and high-end projects, allowing you to create an internal sliding door system that perfectly complements your interior design.
In conclusion, cavity pocket doors offer a sleek and space-saving alternative to traditional swing doors. When choosing jamb options, consider the style, aesthetics, and functionality you want to achieve in your interior. From classic architraves to modern EzyJamb CavKit, each option serves a specific purpose, catering to diverse design preferences. Select the jamb finish that best aligns with your project’s requirements to unlock the true beauty of cavity pocket doors.
