Gain Privacy, Save Space With A Pocket Door

(HIT) - 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 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, credenzas, and even shelving along the wall where the door use to be – enhancing the design of the home and increasing organizational and storage opportunities.

Whether it is converging doors-in-the-wall to create a grand entrance or a single unit to save hall or bathroom space, the Pocket Door Frame can accommodate a wide variety of door weights and sizes. All L.E. Johnson Products are made in the USA and come with a Lifetime Warranty.
Whether putting in converging doors-in-the-wall to make a grand entrance into a dining room or when you just need a single unit to save space in a den, you can get Johnson Pocket Door Frames to fit doors up to 5 feet wide by 9 feet high. Heavy duty frames support doors up to 300 pounds.

To provide years of maintenance-free, smooth operation, the Johnson Pocket Door Frame is designed to eliminate the problems traditionally associated with a door-in-the-wall. The track's box shape and convex rails make it impossible for hanger wheels to jump off. Special keyhole slots allow you to remove the track easily without tearing out a wall. And with Johnson's unique hanger clip system, you can remove the door for painting or staining after the drywall and trim are in place.

The Johnson Pocket Door Frame also has self-adjusting anchors to allow floor settling without disturbing the horizontal alignment of the header and track. To keep the frame straight and provide a rigid surface for attaching wall materials, the Johnson Pocket Door Frame is clad with rust-resistant, zinc-coated steel sides and back plating. This also prevents drywall nails from penetrating the stud and scratching the pocket door.

You can put in a pocket door frame with basic hand tools. The Pocket Door Frame comes with all hardware components including a pre-assembled track and header - all you supply is the door. A carpenter can install the pocket door frame in about ten minutes. Figure a little more time for a handyman.

Accessories include a converging door kit for joining two pocket door frames, doors pulls and privacy locks. The privacy locks fit standard pre-bored doors. You can install them without cutting the door and invalidating the manufacturer's warranty.
