ECLISSE celebrates its 30th anniversary of producing pocket door systems by opening new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility

As a leading world-wide manufacturer of pocket door products ECLISSE have been perfecting the pocket door system for 30 years. In 1989 ECLISSE took the concept of the sliding pocket door and redesigned it with an emphasis on ease of assembly and installation. Over 30 years of research and over 40 patents have resulted in a wide range of competitively priced, high-quality ECLISSE products to suit all sorts of requirements.

The ECLISSE manufacturing base is in Treviso, Italy and its reach is truly international with a vast network of subsidiaries and distributers across the globe. So, it is unsurprising to find ECLISSE as the brand of choice for multi-million pound development projects across the world as well as here in the UK. 2019 is truly an exciting year for the Italian manufacturer which officially opened its new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at the beginning of October.

ECLISSE UK, the subsidiary responsible for the UK and EIRE, work with and supply many of the country’s leading architects, house builders, developers and contactors and have recently been involved in some highly prestigious construction projects including Chelsea Barracks, Islington Square and Westminster Quarter.

2019 has also been an auspicious year for ECLISSE UK. The company’s 100 m² London showroom became fully operational in January this year, followed shortly afterwards by the launch of a new RIBA accredited CPD programme entitled ‘The Future of Doors’. The showroom based in the Business Design Centre, London with its full-sized displays gives architects, specifiers, project managers and developers the chance to see ECLISSE products installed and working, alongside part finished displays demonstrating how they are installed.

The ECLISSE range of products are widely used in cutting-edge commercial and hospitality spaces, and contemporary residential homes and apartments. Saving space within a development has never been so important, and while pocket doors are a little more expensive to install than traditional hinged doors, they deliver a clear monetary benefit by increasing usable space. With pocket doors you can gain up to eight sqm of usable space in a 100 sqm layout simply because the door retracts into a pocket in the wall and this can make a real difference to layout options.

For contemporary settings or interiors where it is important to maintain the balance of the interior design, we have a collection of concealed frame products (which do not require finishing with decorative architrave) which includes both pocket doors and hinged doors. Concealed frame pocket and hinged doors allow the door to become less of a feature in the overall interior design opening up layout and design possibilities.

Comprehensively and independently tested to European standards for durability and robustness, our products also come with a 15-year guarantee, which is yet another reason why we are constantly being specified by leading architectural practices and contractors.
