Ghost door is the latest trend in modern home design. It provides a mystery for your living space and allows for a bit of privacy.
Ghost sliding door system is a wall-mounted sliding system with hardware and track behind the door, whose door panel is closely attached to the wall. It creates the visual effect of a floating door and you can only see an elegant and stylish door panel moving. That’s why it’s called the ghost door.
Unlike other traditional sliding door systems, the position of the guide rail and the hanging wheel are swapped. The hanging wheel is fixed on the wall, and the guide rail is embedded in the door panel.
Specially, there is only one hanging wheel. To ensure durability, two bottom wheels are installed on the two corners under the door to bear most of the door weight, and the soft closer also plays a buffer role to ensure the smooth operation of closing the door and provide customers with a good using experience.
The practical ghost sliding door system YMXT-XC34 from Tengyu is a good example.
The complete set includes 2 x soft closers, 2 x bottom wheels, 1 x floor guide, 1 x hanging wheel, 1 x sliding rail, and 1 x bottom track.
This system is highly functional:
The components are made of top-grade aluminum with low density and high strength, which ensures the long-lasting durability of the system.
6-way adjustable hanger, which can overcome irregularities in the wall.
POM bottom wheels with ball bearing for minimum friction create silent paths to allow the door to slide smoothly and quietly. Help users easily open and close the door with the best silent performance and long service life.
Floor guides prevent the door from swinging inside and out as it moves.
The standard backup safety stop makes it easy to close the door safely.
The max load is 60kg (176lbs), which is an excellent load capacity for most ghost sliding door systems.
100000 cycles tested system fits wood/metal frame panel.

Take advantage of the following advantages of ghost doors to inspire truly creative ideas in your home renovations.
The invisible hardware and tracks give the ghost doors a simple modern look that blends in with the walls and perfectly shows the elegance of the space.
2. Save space
After opening, the door panel moves to one side, close to the wall, and the track is hidden inside the door panel, which cleverly solves the problem of narrow indoor space.
Ghost doors look like a color block on a wall or a movable art painting, so it’s a great way to be used as a secret door. One more idea is that if we made the ghost door panel with a mirror, it would also function as a dressing mirror. Meanwhile, it looks like a fixed mirror, but it’s actually a secret door.
4. Easy to clean
No floor track; cleaning is convenient.
The bellowing is the ghost door’s disadvantage.
1. Poor sound insulation
The ghost sliding door is suspended outside the doorway, so there is a gap, and the sealing effect is poor. This is a common problem with most sliding doors, but Tengyu can reduce the gap to 8mm.
2. Complex installation
The panel needs to be cut and drilled, so customers are required to have relevant experience.
The ghost door is an efficient, space-saving system. The hidden hardware set works with any space you’re decorating. Take a wooden ghost door as an example.
