exterior louvered doorsChoosing Utility Closet Doors
When you are looking to buy new doors for a utility closet you need to consider both the requirements that any equipment in the closet might have as well as any other features you would like to see in the doors. Typically this means choosing styles of closet doors that allows the proper amount of airflow while keeping the sound down.

Utility Closet Doors with Airflow
Many pieces of equipment require a certain amount of airflow to make sure that they do not overheat. This Minimum Airflow will usually be listed in square inches (in²) on the equipment itself or in the owner’s manual. To provide airflow you have three options. The first option is to use one of our fixed louvered doors. As a rule the smaller the louver the more airflow. The next is to go with operable louvered doors. With operable louvered doors the larger the louver the greater the maximum airflow.laundry utility closet doors open the louvers fully for maximum airflow or to close them up to provide some sound insulation. The third option is to go with one of our closet door designs with removable trim but instead of using glass or mirror use a decorative wire mesh.

Utility Closet Doors with Sound Reduction
In some cases you are looking to minimize the sound as much as possible. This is easily achieved by going with panel doors, tongue & groove doors or some other type of solid design. You can also use faux louvered doors to match any other louvered doors and shutters in your home. Depending on the equipment you have in the utility closet you may want a combination of sound proofing and airflow. For situations like this we offer a line of doors that have 12″ of louvers at the top for ventilation while the rest of the door is tongue & groove to provide sound reduction.

Where can I buy decorative closet doors??

I'm looking for interior closet doors. The kind that slide behind the other. I found one at Home Depot but I can't believe that's the only option. I don't want plain wood. Something with a little pizazz. These are going to be used in a retail store to hid the shelves of inventory.
Does anyone know where I should look???

Where to find?

The room in the house that I use as an office didn't have closet doors when we bought it.
Where can I find some kind of decorative beads or other material (but not like for a kids room) to cover up the closet? TIA
I think I am not using the right words for google, because I know they exist and I can't find them.

Please tell me why this ad was removed?

  • Avatar broklee rob Sliding closet doors..... how much?
    Jan 11, 2009 by broklee rob | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I want to replace my current closet doors with 2 sliding mirror doors. The exact measurement of my closet is 75" x 95". Because of my lack of knowledge on these things, I am afraid of getting ripped off. So before I go talking to any salesmen, I would like to get an idea of how much this would cost. Any ideas? Any suggestions? (PS: I live in NYC).

    • As others have said, call Home Depot or Lowes, you've got 2 HD's in Manhattan & others in the surrounding boroughs. Lowes is less populated & none that I know of in Manhattan yet.

      Any installations …ng for their top installation contractor, you will have a better chance of not having any problems later.

      However, if you don't mind a floor track, it would be possible to use a bottom tracked door system.
