How to close a thick closet door?

My theater is under construction but having an issue with the equipment closet door.

The wall is normal 4" with fabric frames, so in total 6" thick.

The closet door size will be 20" x 88". Ideally, I'd like the door to be able to outswing 180° with the same fabric frames attached and without recessed. So I think it also has to be 6" thick.

Is the normal ball catch good enough? Or probably installing 2 or 3 ball catches? I'm worrying about the rattling.

I can only find door knobs with latch for a door up to 3" thick from Emtek.

Is there any other better solution to close a thick closet door?

Is there an opportunity to eliminate the closet door in the theater, and have it at the end of the closet?

What are the purposes of the closet? What is the function of the room outside theater?

The closet is for my equipment rack. Outside of the room is a hallway and bathroom. But the closet side is an exterior wall.

Ever consider hosting the av rack outside the theater, and move the entry door over? Now you have uninterrupted side walls, if you elevate the av rack, and
simply use the area beneath to be access to the back of the rack. The rack could elevation could be as simple as floating it across 2 pieces of steel angle iron,
supported by 2x6, on the side walls.


You actually could create a small bit of wow factor with a small section of feature wall of some sort, embed a hdtv for a digital movie poster lightbox, and tie in the
av rack with the entry door. You also could do fabric side walls, with uninterrupted side wall, and easily run conduit from the av rack, to the front of the room. It also
eliminates one door in the theater. That little extra bit of detailing outside the theater, also might let you go a little more hard core and push for better audio and video
performance in the theater.
