Does anyone sell pocket door framing - without runners

I'm installing a pocket door based on a sliding metal door that comes with the runners and top rail etc included.

If I built the wall from normal studwork, it seems the thinneest is would end up is 48mm either side of the door pocket.

Plenty of firms sell pocket door systems that are much more compact than this, with a network of thinner metal studs to form the base for the wall linings - but al of them that I can find from Ecliese etc also come with the running gear etc which I don;t want.

Does anyone sell a basic framing kit where you can fit your own running gear within it? Otherwise, the only options seem to be to build a fatter wall, or to get a load of running gear and chuck it away.
