No More Headaches
Avoiding Costly Repairs with an Innovative Pocket Door System
Pocket doors often feel like one of those necessary evils in homes. They are convenient and useful in theory but often get a bad rap. This is mainly because homeowners often encounter failures with them, resulting in costly repairs both to the pocket door track and the wall.
Builder Matt Risinger mentions, “common failures include doors falling off the track, plastic rollers that crack, or door tracks that aren’t perfectly level. Even the screws used in the roller carriages will back out over time because of constant use.” The worst part is that when these systems fail or screws need to be tightened, it requires breaking into the wall to do so.
A New Way
Now imagine that your pocket door track was designed so that all of the components could be accessed without damaging the pocket. Imagine replacing a pocket door track without breaking the wall. Even the rollers and soft-close dampers could be removed without ripping down any walls. There’d be no more headaches!
Sugatsune’s new LAMP® branded FD80H series of pocket door systems is the solution. Available with 2-way soft-closing dampers for recessed or surface mounted applications, these easy-to-install and highly innovative door systems are proven in their durability, surviving 200,000 cycles in testing. The pocket door track and its components have been side impact tested up to 60 lbs. If anything should happen with the system, the FD80H has been designed so that all of the hardware components can be accessed and removed simply by taking off part of the track and removing the door. This is the solution consumers have been asking for: a way of fixing, upgrading, or replacing a pocket door track without breaking the wall.
