in this article shall be considered of the cabinet assembly process with shelves, side walls, drawers, etc.The essence of an entirely different - a defining element of this piece of furniture are just a sliding door.By and large, however paradoxically sounds, wardrobe simply can not even be a "closet" in the literal sense of the word.

Разнообразные варианты шкафов-купе, которые иногда даже и не являются "шкафами"

variety of options-in closets, which are sometimes not even are "cabinets»

For mobile door design can isolate a niche in the long wall, placed in the resulting space as a conventional shelf, and shelves, cabinets and T.P.Often a separate partition end of the room, along its entire width, from wall to wall, and height - from floor to ceiling.And formed a mini-space can serve as a spacious wardrobe and storage area, and sometimes - even a small office.Apply a similar design for installation in the corner of a room or hallway - finally available hosts appears triangular "closet", which can be used as a cabinet, and other needs, for example, even for a "home park" bicycle.

In short, the options can be innumerable.But they all have in common one - a system of movable doors.Properly mounted flap effortlessly moved by their guide, in turn will open up a particular department "cabinet", and closed tightly, without gaps, adjacent to vertical surfaces, the framing structure.

should not be assumed that the numerous local firms engaged in the manufacture and installation of cabinets coupe, used some of his own design, or mechanisms.In the overwhelming number of cases for this purpose, complete systems, which is quite possible to purchase furniture accessories stores.Usually they are a certain set of metal (often - aluminum) profiles and the necessary accessories: roller mechanisms, plugs, gaskets, connectors, fasteners, etc.These systems help to collect door frame structure and mechanism of their movement, well, inner filling of each artist is free to choose his own - a mirror, transparent or smoked glass, plastic, laminated chipboard or MDF and other materials.

Such systems for sliding doors cabinets meets a lot.They may vary and producing configuration profiles material parts mounting principle, the level of complexity of the roller mechanism, the adjustment system, etc.In our publication system will be considered «Aristo», as one of the most popular, proven reliability, and simple enough to self-assemble.In addition, it is nice to know that it is - the products of our domestic producers, which has won recognition abroad.

Schlegel softens the blows of the sash of the cabinet wall, and the door closed position to prevent the penetration of dust.

There are several items that can be purchased on request - closers, magnetic detents, locks, plugs for profiles ends, etc.But they did not directly affect the reporting process of assembling and installing closet doors.

principle assembly of doors for cabinet compartment with «Aristo» system

In the configuration profiles and fitting elements «Aristo» system is thoroughly, so the installation of the door design should not cause much difficulty.

Schematic diagram of the assembly of one door leaf with vertical profiles of type C shown in the drawing.Hereinafter, the numbering of the profile and fitting elements observed in full accordance with the table located above the detailing.

Profiles 3 and 4, respectively, are fixed to the ceiling (cover of the cabinet) and the floor (base cabinet), and are fixed parts of the system.

Mounting door dense construction is carried out by means of assembly screws (pos. 15).Under №14a shows the adjusting screw the lower support roller.

In not shown embodiment the central horizontal bridges when they are needed.But their installation does not differ much.Or they simply embedded without additional fixing (to the uprights inside special ledges provided for precise alignment) or fixed to a screw assembly on the same principle as door and the upper crossbar.

Below is an assembly drawing for option using the vertical profile of the type N.

principal there is no difference - just for these profiles using another symmetric type of top rollers.However, it will still be differences in the calculation of the size and installation of the upper and lower guide sections (skids).

Calculations door dimensions for the cabinet compartment system «Aristo»

door assembly only in that case will be qualitative, if they conducted a thorough, to the millimeter, calculations, and very accurate preparation of the details will be made on the received size.No negligence settlements "by eye" is not allowed - this is sure not only to the sloppy kind, but also to distortions and even jamming the door design.

calculations carried out in the following sequence:

  • determine the exact size of the opening in which the door design will be installed.

The diagram shows the wall construction, floor and ceiling, but it can be wall-mounted cabinet - the principle remains the same.

Source dimensions - length and height of the opening , in which the movable door design will be installed

Source dimensions - length and height of the opening, which will be installed movable door design

At the output we have two values: the length of the opening - Ln and its height - H, from which will be further counting.

is extremely important to pay attention to the fact that the upper and lower boundary of the aperture should be strictly horizontal over its entire length.If the deviation from the vertical sidewalls although extremely desirable, but nevertheless can be somehow compensated by a decorative trim, even slight deviation from the horizontal will go to the looseness of movable wings jamming.

Often at the top and bottom guide profiles are installed additional leveling pads

often at the top and bottom guide profiles are installed additional leveling pads

often to compensate for slight unevenness in the floor and ceiling, and to facilitate the further consolidation of guide profiles, top and bottom flat panels mounted along the entire length of the opening (strip)For example, chipboard.In this case, the opening height is measured after the installation of such pads, or the thickness must be taken into account - subtracted from the overall height of the opening.

  • After measuring aperture can be obtained once the height of the door structure, that is, the length of the required vertical profiles pens (1 or 2).

Regardless of the type of profile, it is always

Hg = H - 40 mm

  • length Ln opening and immediately gives the length of the lower and upper guide sections (3 and 4).

nuance can be here.If the installation is planned frame from straight or shaped abutment (profiles 9 or 10), the length of rails 3 and 4 is reduced to 3 mm (1,5 mm on each side by the thickness of the frame).

ld = Ln - 3 mm

The diagram shows the possible deployment of a well additional profiles

The diagram shows the possible deployment of a well additional profiles

profiles length of 9 and 10 is always equal to "clean" the height of opening Hn .

  • next question - is the width of the door leaf.

This rate depends on the total length of the opening and the planned number of movable wings, and the applied vertical profile, pens, and even the presence or absence of Schlegel.

With significant lengths of the opening is not worth chasing big wide door leaves - they are too bulky and not very comfortable to use.On dvuhpoloznyh guides it is possible to accommodate two, three, four and even five leaflets.Despite the fact that even be 1500 mm, usually try to adhere to the width of each within 750 ÷ 900 mm.
