Johnson Hardware Pocket Doors
May 4, 2022
Johnson Hardware’s inventive 1500SC Soft-Close Pocket Door Hardware makes it simple to create handicapped-accessible openings throughout home interiors. The universal design-inspired soft-close feature quietly slides doors open and shut with a fingertip touch. Door speed slows gradually, preventing pinching and slamming. The 1500SC Series Soft-Close Pocket Door Frame Kit accommodates stylish wood and metal doors up to 165 lbs and 60” wide. The 2610SC Soft-Close Wall Mount Sliding Door Hardware handles doors up to 165 lbs and 96” wide.
Expertly engineered, Johnson’s hardware lets you maximize usable space where needed, from bathrooms to high foot-traffic areas. Compared to swinging doors, which present obstacles, pocket doors free up to 14 square feet of floor space for easier travel of mobility aids through doorways, more turnaround space, and extra areas for household items.
Johnson’s durable pocket door hardware exceeds the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility standard for door width. The ADA requires a minimum clear width of 32” from door face to opposite stop, but Johnson’s hardware accommodates up to 60” for greater accessibility. Pocket doors also conveniently slide into the wall, while swinging doors require forward and backward movements alongside them, tricky with a wheelchair or walker.
To ensure unobstructed floor surfaces, Johnson provides Trackless Door Guides for its sliding bypass and multi-pass pocket door series. Without floor tracks, people using mobility aids can pass through doorways without a hitch.
