FIRST STEP TO A SUCCESSFUL CONVERGING POCKET DOOR INSTALLATION?
WATCH THIS VIDEO!
Converging pocket doors offer an ideal solution in situations where conventional swinging doors would rob too much space or where a room’s design or furniture would encumber swinging doors. This video shows how to make a dramatic double pocket door installation simple and easy. The secret is the Johnson Hardware converging pocket door kit, which connects two pocket door frames. Converging pocket doors take up no wall space and save up to 28 sq. ft. of floor space. The video demonstrates how to complete this project properly in the shortest time possible. The 11-minute video describes the process in a dozen steps via crisp animation that moves at a manageable pace and lets the viewer stop and review scenes as needed.
The video includes vivid visuals and explanations of the various installation steps, beginning with constructing the rough opening and ending with finishing touches, such as installing the finishing jambs and headers as well as the door guides that ensure the doors are centered in the pocket cavity and sliding freely. In between are steps that show how to modify the hardware set to fit the specific application and tips to ensure the doors are plumb and level. Of particular benefit are crystal-clear images of the various set components, where they go, and how they are installed and adjusted.
The video also highlights how the components are designed to deliver years of trouble-free operation. For example, the hardware set features heavy-duty “tricycle” hangers with machine-turned nylon wheels for easy gliding, feather-touch door operation. The box track design with convex rails makes unwanted wheel jump-offs virtually impossible. And the self-adjusting floor anchors allow for floor settling without disturbing alignment of headers and track.
Johnson Hardware converging pocket door frames are made in the USA and are readily available in several versions (e.g., Series 1500/1560/2511 and Series 2710/2711) to accommodate various wall thicknesses, door sizes, and door weights.
