This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Pocket doors can separate two rooms when you want privacy, and can be conveniently slid into adjacent walls when you don’t. But it is important to invest in a high-quality track that will hold up over time and glide smoothly. Here we list various options that come with the rollers and other hardware, and rank them for durability, ease of use, and price. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best pocket door track on Amazon.

Häfele America Co. When a company professes to know more about sliding door hardware than anyone else in the world, you can’t not take a look at its offerings. Lines that stand out include the Hawa brand, which is known for its light and silent operation, as well as the Eku Porta system, which uniquely allows you to remove the fittings and door leaf after installation is complete. hafele.com

Sugatsune America, Inc. This company has more than 80 years under its belt of manufacturing high-quality hardware for doors, including soft-closing systems and synchronized sliding doors – both of which are amenities that you won’t find from many other brands. In addition, its products are known to hold up for generations, so they shouldn’t be overlooked when you’re shopping around. sugatsune.com

Editor's Notes

May 06, 2019:

Pocket doors are a stylish and practical solution when you don’t have the space required for traditional, hinged doors that swing open. The Johnson Hardware brand is well-known in the sliding door industry, and it’s often the go-to brand for quality track sets. Three of its offerings made our list, including the 111SD, which accommodates two doors and comes with two sets of sturdy, ball-bearing rollers per track.

For an option that incorporates four-wheeled hangers that are permanently lubricated, look to the National Hardware choice, which is easy to set up and works great with plaster, drywall, or wood paneling. Another that’s simple to install is the Slide-Co 162804, which offers pre-drilled holes every 9 inches and easily adjustable guides.

No matter which you ultimately select, for new construction, a finish carpenter is best suited for the job, as they specialize in fine details. If you’re thinking of adding this type of system to an existing wall, ensure there’s enough space for the door(s) to travel inside the wall.
