Hi, pocket doors are, in effect, a hidden sliding door which can be good if space is an issue, they look good too.
There are many systems and places to get them from so a google search will help, but for information and to see whats available try The Pocket Door Shop online.

Hope this helps.

hi yes. I have installed these doors/partitions.
I would suggest calling a door supplier. Howdens or Magnet
