Ikea Pax Sliding Door Wardrobes

Door Types

As noted elsewhere, there are three types. One set comes in one peice another in two peices (Havsik) which just need connecting together (10 mins). The third and most popular are the panelled doors such as the Auli ones, with 3 panels (201cm frame height) and 4 panels (236cm frame height). These take an hour to assemble per pair.

Mounting Doors

At least 2cm ceiling clearance is required, however since floor and ceilings are rarely flat, be on the safe side and measure in several places.

Four Door Systems

The only way of doing this is to put 2 x sliding door systems side by side. This does not always work well if space is tight. Do not assume that you can fit 2 x 150cm wide wardrobes into a 300cm space.There are lining peices with add 1-2mm to each end and therefore you will need 301cm of space. You will also need to measure in several points.

Soft Close Device

This will cushion the doors when they close. In practice the momentum form sliding the door closed is shifted onto the frame when this device is in use and often it can mean you have to attach the wardrobes to the wall. If you do not have the device it does not have the same effect. This is worth noting if yuo are reluctant or cannot have your wardrobes attached to the wall (ie you rent).

Internal Lights and Soft Close Device

In some systems Ikea show the intenral LED lighting at the top of the wardrobe. This can be done, but if you buy the softclose device, it has to be positioned further back and the light sensitive switch will not always work. It is often better to suspend it from a shelf instead.

Internal Fabric Storage Boxes

These are made of fabric and sit neatly in shelf spaces, often shown on the website and in catalogues on the top shelf. This is not so neat on the sliding door wardrobes as the rail hangs down and the shelve will need to be 2 holes lower than on a hinged door system. Furthermore if you have purchased the soft close device this hangs lower still in the corners meaning the sehlf must be another 2 holes lover. Overall you could lose 3-4 holes and this might impact heavily on your hanging space if not considered.

I cannot praise this company enough, I was given a booking for the 18th October, I asked them to let me know if they had any cancellations for anything earlier, they contacted me and moved the appointment forward to the 6th, they kept me informed all the way, turned up on time, the assembler Chris was very pleasant and friendly, he put five items together perfectly and showed me how to operate the ottoman storage bed, also that all the other pieces of furniture were in good order. I was charged the price quoted with no issues at all, I would definitely use this company in the future and I will be recommending to my friends and family. great job well done ! Thank you Flatpack Amigos.

The service was absolutely superb from booking to completion. The assembler arrived on time and just got on with the job. All my bedroom furniture was assembled in the morning, which saved us so much time. The assembler was friendly and tidy. It really was an excellent service and I will definitely recommend flat pack amigos to my friends and family. This job would have taken us hours, so it was well worth the competitive price we paid. Thank you
