Full Height, Wall-to-Wall Sliding Bypass Doors Using HASVIK Panels

image (3)-733561

Materials: Two sets of Ikea HASVIK Sliding Doors, Two sets of Everbilt 60 in. Sliding Door Sets from Home Depot, Vinyl Tubing, 2×4, Two 3″ long bolts and nylock nuts

Description: Needed sliding doors for full height, wall-to-wall closet with opening dimension of 116×95″ on a budget. Home Depot and Lowes did not carry off-the-shelf door panels that would fit that opening without going custom order. Two sets of 59×92 7/8″ HASVIK sliding doors was the most economical solution.

Also, two sets of Everbilt 60 inch sliding door sets were used. The door panels were slightly short so a 2×4 was used as a spacer to bring the track lower.

None of the hardware that came with the Ikea doors were used. It would have taken too long to modify. Home Depot had sliding door hardware priced right.

To prevent the sliding doors from going all the way to the left or right, two bolts with Nylock nuts and vinyl tubing were installed through the tracks as a stop.

    Martin… I want to do the same thing but the bottom rail is my main hang up too! Any hack you figured out? !!

    Does this have to be the Hasvik panels? I’d rather install one of the glass mounted panels but I’m not sure how that affects attaching the mounting hardware to the ikea door.

  3. Martin says:

    Another question: because the rail is on the inside and you use the Everbilt hardware, I suppose any size door would fit, thickness-wise? Would a door like Sekken be doable?

  4. Martin says:

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I have the right height, about the right width, for 4 panels. What did you do for the bottom of the doors? I don’t want to drill a track in my floor, and that’s the main thing that’s been blocking me.
