Sliding pocket door hardware6/20/15
Does anyone have any brands/parts to recommend for sliding pocket doors? I have 22" wide doors on a 24" deep cabinet that I need to open with euro cup hinges and slide in parallel with the sides of the cabinets, typical to TV/Bedroom cabinetry. Some we have used in the past worked but over the years never held up as they were cheaply made. Thank you!
Use the rack and pinion one , I believe they are made by KV . Model # 8091 or 8092 . Always had go luck with these
The height of the door is also very important. For doors up to 42" high and under 30lbs. the Accuride 1321 Pro Pocket is very good. Doors to 60" high can be done with Accuride 1332 or 1432. For very large doors the ultimate pocket door hardware is the Hawa Concepta from Hafele.
Here is a preview of something all together new in the concept of pocket door systems for larger, heavier doors with Euro style cabinets.
We have just used the HAWA concept. It is really good but also REALLY expensive and you need an engineering degree to install it. The first door will take you 4 hours then 1-2 hours from then on.
