No Room for a Door? Slide it into the Wall

Dec. 19, 2017

Homeowners today are looking for cost-effective ways to increase the amount of usable space in their existing home.

When you can't afford to lose the space that a swinging door takes up, install a door-in-the-wall with the Johnson 1500SC Pocket Door Frame. A standard swinging door takes up to 14 square feet around an entry. Pocket doors use no floor space around an entry -- in effect, giving you bigger rooms and hallways. With the swinging door out of the way, homeowners can put tables, pictures, and even shelving along the wall where the door used to be – enhancing the home as well as increasing organizational and storage opportunities. 

The Johnson 1500SC Pocket Door Frame can be used with solid core wood doors up to 200 lbs. and is now available with its innovative Soft-Close sliding door hardware included in the package. The soft-close hardware works like a cabinet door closer with pocket, wall mount and sliding doors.

The Johnson Soft-Close enables doors to open and close quietly and securely. There are countless benefits, especially for homes with children or older adults.  Soft-close sliding door hardware prevents door slamming and significantly reduces noise, which makes it perfect for bedrooms with light sleepers and infants. The smooth, soft closing action helps prevent pinched fingers between the door and the jamb, as well as providing privacy.  It also reduces wear and tear on your door and jamb.

Soft-close sliding door hardware is easy to install and will take a handyman less than an hour. It is for use in new or retrofitted installations with the following Johnson Hardware pocket door, sliding and wall mount door systems: 138F, 134F, 100PD, 100SD, 2610F, 1500, 1562 and 2710.

Use one set for soft action opening or closing in a single door, two sets on a single door for soft-close action opening and closing. For two converging pocket or wall mount doors, or two bypass sliding doors, use four sets for soft action opening and closing. Each set includes a soft-close dampener, two-door hanger plates, an actuator and a ball-bearing door hanger.
