Your clothes should look good and wear well

And so should the wardrobe they’re in! The new Hiro Sliding Door System sets a new benchmark in wardrobe design. Spring is a time for fresh beginnings. It’s the season to get motivated and make changes. With that being said, many of us look in our wardrobe but perhaps we should be looking at it!

JELD-WEN Australia, parent company of iconic Australian brands Stegbar and Regency, and the country’s leading window, door, shower screen and wardrobe manufacturer is looking to the future with innovative designs and technologies that meet homeowner demands for a more customised and contemporary sliding door wardrobe system.

JELD-WEN Director of Marketing, Bruce Tosello states that “for far too long designs for sliding door systems have not kept pace with changing household needs. As a result JELD-WEN developed the new HIRO sliding door system to give home owners complete design control and with the advanced technology this system provides, homeowners get a wardrobe system that not only looks good but has superior performance qualities.”

Original designs for built-in wardrobe systems were introduced in the late 70’s and early 80’s and comprised a cavity space with a single shelf and hanging rod, fitted either with hinged or sliding doors in timber or mirror finish. Many of today’s systems still have the same practical problems of decades ago: they wobble and bounce off their tracks and don’t feel secure, they leave unsightly gaps because they are not completely sealed and usually have doors with bottom rollers that allow dust and dirt to accumulate.

“The improved performance of the HIRO sliding door system comes from the combination of a low profile PVC top and bottom track with integrated track and door seals and a self-levelling quad roller system that prevents door rattle and removes unsightly gaps – two of the biggest customer concerns in existing door systems,” said Bruce.

Hiro Sliding Door System Aesthetically, the HIRO sliding door system also sets a new benchmark. The contemporary wide frames can be completely customised in terms of placement, size and material –with multiple choices of flush panels that can be grooved, patterned or painted; glass, mirror or veneer.

Ironically the freedom and flexibility of the HIRO sliding system sees a return to a time before sliding wardrobes were an option – when homeowners had free standing wardrobes custom made to the look and size they wanted. This what the HIRO range offers. Freedom of choice combined with the very latest technology.

The HIRO design also creates a sliding door system that can be used as a room divider as its equally attractive when viewed from the front or the back – the possibilities are endless.

Who would have thought the humble sliding door wardrobe had come so far...
