We want to clear up the main technical doubts that may arise regarding the assembly of our products and the necessary steps required to assemble them.

Systems for sliding doors

The choice of the door opening system is a key point in the design of a wardrobe, and it is necessary to take into account factors such as: functionality, ease and continuity of use, making the most of space, as well as the appearance. At Emuca, we offer technical solutions for the furniture industry.

The main opening systems on wardrobes:

- Wardrobe with hinge door. See family 1.
This is the most common and classic system. Its hinge system makes it possible to open panels of different sizes and with different opening angles (up to 180º) and opening is quick and simple, although it is the system that takes up most space. If you do not have a large space, this may not be your best system. However, if your wardrobe is going to have very regular use, over time hinge doors are a lot more convenient than other systems.

- Wardrobe with sliding opening. See family 7.
They are suitable for large pieces of furniture as well as small ones and where you do not want disturbance when opening the doors. Half of the piece of furniture is always closed, but this is an ideal system for small spaces. Within this system there are inner sliding doors (within the structure itself of the furniture) and outer ones (completely hiding the wardrobe), and it can be installed built-in to the wall or free from it. In any case, our sliding doors have guide rails consisting of two rails with wheels.

What type of door should I choose for my wardrobe?

We have a table for calculating the weight of a door, which is necessary to know when choosing guy ropes and measurements.

Depending on the material of the door, as well as its dimensions, the result will be the weight of the door (kg) that you can use to calculate to the necessary strength of the measure (Kg x cm).

How can I calculate the weight of the door?



When you assemble a wardrobe with a system of sliding doors it is necessary to mount handle profiles for opening and closing. In the Emuca catalogue there are different models created from aluminium and steel.

Depending on the sliding door system chosen, you can use certain handle profiles or other depending on their geometry. In the following table you can find the compatibility that exists between different sliding door systems and handle profiles.

Which handle profiles can I mount with the different sliding door systems for wardrobes that there are in the Emuca catalogue?

Generally, in our catalogue there are two forms of sale for profiling items:

Package sales. For that reason we have profiles cut to the specific measure (for example 3m) and packaged in the quantity outlined in the catalogue (for example 24m packaging). They are for immediate delivery as we have stock and they can be managed through our B2B.

Made to measure sales: For this purpose we have profiles in industrial packaging (for example m packaging) and in this way, our clients can request profiles made to a specific measure. The maximum cut measurement that can be requested is the length of the bar indicated with L (for example 3m).

This sales method implicitly involves extra management, opening codes, for opening codes, handling, cutting and packaging, as well as an extra delivery period from the order date.

These products can be requested through our B2B, although the assessment of the order (final price) is outstanding until the Customer Service Area gets in touch with the client in order to define the exact measurement, the quantity of profiles requested and the delivery period.

What do the codes with packaging in metres that are on lots of profiling products mean? What is the difference between them? Which do I choose?
