Freeing Up Space

For areas that won’t accommodate standard, swing-style doors, Johnson Hardware offers numerous options for door hanging and operation. The company’s 1500SC pocket door frame kit features ultra-quiet, soft-close technology, supporting door sizes of up to 60 inches wide by 108 inches tall, and weights up to 165 lbs. With smooth-gliding ball-bearing hanger wheels, a jump-proof box track and heavy gauge all-steel split studs, 1500SC hardware is designed to ensure flawless operation.

For closets and tucked away work areas, another option includes the company’s Full Access Bi-Fold Door Hardware, which lets doors fold 180 degrees to lie flat against walls for obstacle-free, jamb-to-jamb access.

Floor space is a precious commodity. With that in mind, Winpro developed the option of a swing-arm-mounted operator station on its Screen Express and Screen Express SS. Both machines automate the process of spline insertion on door and window screens and the swing arm operator station is positioned so operators have access to them while loading and unloading frames.

Operator stations offer all the functionality of a pedestal unit, while preventing the need for additional floor space, also eliminating the interconnect cable strung between pedestals and Screen Express. If bar code scanning is required, both machines have also been upgraded from the previous wired unit to a wireless unit capable of both 1D and 2D scanning.

Durable and Secure Performance

Roto North America added a new HPD1 to its lineup of hardware for swing patio doors—a hinged locking system that’s designed to provide optimal performance, security, functionality and durability. Components are made with 304 stainless steel for corrosion resistance and the product’s faceplate has passed 3,000 hours of salt-spray testing in accordance with ASTM B117 for use in coastal areas.

The new system supports taller doors between six and 10-feet in height, and includes three types of active locking points, including three-point tongues, three-point shoot bolts, and five-point tongues and shoot bolts.

A Table for One

One “side effect” from the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic included the need for doing more work with fewer people. That’s where equipment such as Wakefield’s K-51DV Flipping Table and Conveyor come in. The unit is designed to enable one person to handle large doors and windows, with ergonomic features that help to ensure safety.

A New 7/8-Inch Option for BBG

ODL introduced a new, 7/8-inch custom product for its Blink Blinds + Glass brand that, according to company information, is the only blinds between glass product that provides light and privacy control in a 7/8-inch insulating glass platform for windows and sliding patio doors.

To accomplish this, officials say slat design was optimized for use in a tighter airspace, components were designed to eliminate friction points and high-quality bearings and rollers were added to provide a smooth operating experience. The product offers multiple options for operator placement based on window type and location.

The product is available in multiple low-E options and six colors.
