How To Order The Detroit

Here's where we get a little bit of basic information from you so we can get started on your sliding door kit.

At DoorMate, we think every kit we make is just as unique as the customer and the home or workspace its going into, so we will always follow up every order with what we call a 'Spec Request Sheet' so we can get the finer details of your order.

Track Length To Suit

To get your track length, measure your door opening width and times it by 2, then select the track length option that your measurements fit within (we'll cut this down free of charge when we receive your response to our follow up email)

Finishes and Fixings

Our finishes and fixings are purely up to the customers own personal taste, however if you are fitting your system externally (outside) you will need to select the Hammerite finish for extra protection against mother nature.

Floor Guides

This choice again is down to customer taste, we offer 3 options of floor guides.
Concealed Floor Guide = You would need to route out the bottom the door for a hidden floor guide to slide through.
Cupped Floor Guide = your door would slide through a U-Shaped channel that has been bolted to the floor.
Roller Floor Guide = Similar to the Cupped Floor guide, but with one side of the bracket being a wheel and is fitted to the wall rather than the floor.
Please note you can find more information and images of these devices and floor guides on our Technical Stuff Page
