    Tambour doors

    I wonder if anyone can help. I have redesigned the interior of my Romahome R20 to have a separate loo/washroom where the kitchen normally rsides at the rear. We have two fixed half bulkheads and need a tambour concertina type door for the gap in the centre. Although I have found these in many vans the makers will not sell separately and even using the web I cannot locate anything suitable. There's not room for a wooden door and the curtain works but could do better. Any ideas?

    I wonder if a double glazing firm could make one to measure? It might be worth asking the question!

    Also there are cut-to-size concertina ones usually in B&Q or catalogues. Or used to be!

      I have been thinking about a tambour door for my Romahome Demountable, as I have taken out the original fridge and putting in a smaller electric only fridge which will give us more cupboard space. A tambour door seems like the obvious choice as it won't get in the way in the galley.

      I do my renovations by trial and error and usually manage to get something individual and just right for the job, but it always takes me ages.

      I made a tambour door under bed shoe box some time ago, so I thought I would make something similar for the van. A tambour door is easy to make with slats glued onto fabric using PVA glue. Then you have to fit a groove for it to run into. I used a router because it has to be curved at the top so it has somewhere to go when you open it up. You could probably get a furniture maker to make the runner if you designed it.
