Better by Design

Enigma Sliding Pocket Doors are chosen by some of the most famous architect practises across the world and can be found in some of the most exclusive high-end buildings in London and across the UK. Discover the five unique attributes that make Enigma ‘Better by Design’:

Better by Design

System Design

The pocket door must operate smoothly and consistently without hampering the user experience. Therefore the sliding system must be well designed and durable. Issues with pockets doors are less easy to fix than with conventional doors so it is doubly important to get this bit right.

Quality hardware is paramount for a fluid, soft close, as opposed to a wobbly, squeaky rattle! The system must also be designed so that it is easy to install consistently, limiting performance issues which may arise from poor installation.

Design Versatility

A designer should never have to compromise functionality or beautiful design, when it comes to pocket doors.

A good pocket door system should also have a range of additional options that enable rather than limit the designer. For example, being able to mount sockets on the walls – not all pocket doors allow for this – or being able to use a self-supporting head jamb where the head of the pocket door kit cannot be fixed directly to the ceiling or floor slab. Acoustic dampening options are also desirable for areas where noise levels may be a concern – for example, bedrooms or ensuite bathrooms.

Users should be able to slide open and closed with zero or minimal handling of the pocket door.

A criticism of pocket doors in the past was that they were harder for the less physically able to operate. Not if the door comes with an automatic option! Selo’s Enigma Motus pocket door is powered by an electromagnetic propulsion system to silently open and close the door with zero or minimal handling of the door itself.

Rapid Installation

Pre-assembled pocket doors are a game changer! Doors can be installed easily within minutes, rather than hours.

We are the only pocket door manufacturer offering a preassembled option. The system minimises risk of bad workmanship and often makes it easier to book in and coordinate tradesmen. This is becoming increasingly popular in modular and off-site construction due to the space saving benefits on coupled with the quality assurance of having them built in a factory environment.
