Hi all,
Does anyone know of a sliding wardrobe system which, with 3 doors, allows all 3 doors slide to the left or the right of the wardrobe. Seen plenty that only allows access to one bay at a time so 2 running tracks used but need 3.
Any advice appreciated
Thanks

You could just put 3 single rails together, I've done it with two so should not be a problem with 3.

The biggest issue with all the doors sliding to one side is things start getting quite thick, OK if the room is large but you could easily end up needing 150mm if the dors are say 40mm thick by the time you have allowed some clearance between.

Also bear in mind that since all three doors are on different rails, if you're not careful about which order they're closed in, you'll end up with wardrobe-door-width gaps between one door and the next that you can see through into the wardrobe. (Which will let the dust in easily, and I suspect is also a big reason why two-rail designs are preferred.)
