Sliding track cupboard door thingy?

Time to seek info from the LocostBuilders collective...

In one of our bedrooms there are floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes; pairs of tall doors on the bottom, pairs of short doors on the top. I want to fit a curtain rod, but the finial at the wardrobe end will obstruct the top short door next to the window. I am left with the choice of screwing that door shut (a relatively minor inconvenience), or doing something better.

Now I have seen kitchen units where you pull the middle of a pair of doors and the furthest unhinged door slides in a track - a bit like a bi-fold door. Trouble is, I have no idea what they would be called, so I can't look them up on the interwebby and find out if they would work!

Can anyone give me some clues?

However if I think I understand your situation, your finial still needs to be a bit away from the door for it to fold out. Would a sliding door be a better option;

It would mean the cupboard doors aren't in line which wouldn't be the best thing aesthetically, but it would mean the curtain rod can go right up to the cupboard door.

Thanks - the first one is the what I was thinking about - I'd have to check the size of that mechanism though. The finial I plan to use is very small - just a ring around the end of the curtain pole. If I didn't do anything to remedy the situation I'd only be able to open the wardrobe door half-way.

A sliding door would look a bit odd - there are 2 other pairs of doors at the same level and it would nice to match.
