Need to install a cavity slider in the new ensuite of this home we're renovating. Bearing in mind that we are not going to live here long term and will sell when it's done, is the way more expensive NZ made CS cavity door worth it?
Bunnings price is $400 for the pocket assembly where essentially the same item from Hume Evolution is $240.
I realise the CS has some steel structural components in the actual door but the pockets appear to be very similar.
Does anyone have experience fitting and using either door system and can offer advice? Thanks.
Mark.

Yes, agree. If we were planning to live in this permanently I would opt for CS too. I wonder about the steel bars in the CS doors, do they warp or bend much anyway? It's a door hung from the top with no loading to speak of, is heat or humidity the issue?
Thx for your input Stu1

Our technical designer recommended them over the Hume as they don’t warp or bend as much, we are getting one for media room they can come with sound stop which is a bonus. Hume would be fine as well just thought cs sliders were a better option for us
