How to Create Versatile Living Spaces For Today’s Ever-Changing Families

(HIT) - With the active and bustling lifestyle families lead, it is no surprise that they frequently change the way they interact with, and in, their living spaces. Different stages of life call for different living spaces. Most homes are not equipped to offer this versatility. Outfitted with traditional swinging doors that squander space, standard-width doorways offer limited accessibility and restrictive living areas.

Johnson’s Multi-Pass Pocket Door Hardware application transforms homes for optimal versatility and maximized living spaces, ideal for today’s ever-changing families.
According to a survey on homeowner and homebuyer priorities, the ideal home readily adapts to a family’s changing room space requirements. For example, the addition, growth and departure of children or elderly relatives create significant demand for flexible floor plans. Make the most the most of your home and use Johnson Hardware’s ingenious Multi-Pass Pocket Door Hardware to optimize existing square footage.

A home that is able to evolve with ever-changing families has functionality at the forefront of its design. Johnson’s Multi-Pass Pocket Door application enables up to three 400 lb. doors to glide effortlessly into the inside of the wall. Since pocket doors do not swing open or closed, you can reclaim floor space consumed by traditional hinged doors.

Make high traffic areas of your home more accessible with a large entryway that won’t inhibit wheelchairs, walkers or foot traffic. Whether it’s a play room for the kids or living quarters for an elderly relative, the pocket door bottom track can be recessed in the floor for easy navigation through the entryway.

With standard Multi-Pass Pocket Door Hardware, you can create up to twelve foot wide doorways, or wider openings with longer custom tracks. Reveal large open areas when the pocket doors slide back inside the wall. Now you have an expansive space for guests to socialize and mingle, an area perfect for family game night or a safe, open area for children to play.

Pull the doors shut and the large space quickly transforms into two cozy and more private settings, such as an intimate home theatre to watch the latest movie or a comfy, peaceful nook to catch up on your reading. The Multi-Pass Pocket Door Hardware allows for a level of versatility that standard doors and entryways cannot mimic.

Johnson’s Multi-Pass Pocket Door Hardware is manufactured for superior performance and strength with up to 16 gauge steel components. Pre-packaged tracks made for three-door applications. Custom track lengths up to 192” are also available. Offered in both residential and commercial grades, the 111MD is capable to support doors up to 150lbs., the 100MD handles up to 200lb. doors, and the heavy-duty 200MD hold doors up to 400 lbs per individual door. To ensure jump proof operation, the hardware is available with heavy-duty extruded aluminum I-beam tracks with 4-wheel ball bearing hangers or aluminum box shape tracks with convex rails and three-wheel ball-bearing hangers. Manufactured and tested to exceed ANSI standards, all Johnson Hardware products are backed with a limited guarantee.
