Product Overview

The Johnson Hardware 1500 Series Pocket Door Frame for Doors up to 32 in. x 80 in. is an easily assembled, premium quality commercial/residential kit for installing a pocket door into a wall. Pocket doors do not need "swing" room, saving valuable floor space while still assuring the full privacy of a standard door. Manufactured and designed, the frame is structurally strong and perfect for the builder or do-it-yourselfer. The kit components are all of the highest quality and durability which is why we can offer a lifetime warranty.

  • Smooth rolling, balanced three wheel tricycle hangers ensure that all wheels carry weight evenly for the smoothest operation
  • A flip of a clip separates hangers from doors for easy door installation and removal
  • Precision extruded box track is made of heavy-walled aluminum and guarantees that your door will not jump track
  • Convex rails on box track trap dirt for free rolling
  • Wood split jamb and wood stud uprights have full steel sides and backs to provide maximum rigidity for wall materials and restricts nails from penetration into pocket
  • Self-adjusting floor anchors allow for settling of floor without disturbing horizontal alignment of header and track
  • In addition to the frame, track, and hangers, kit also includes door guide, adjustment wrench and door bumper
  • For door thicknesses of 1 in. to 1-3/8 in. (1-3/4 in. door adaptor kit available)
  • For door widths up to 32 in.
  • For door heights up to 80 in.
  • For door weights of up to 200 lbs.
  • Johnson Hardware offers a true lifetime warranty and will replace any item found defective in material or workmanship regardless of its date of purchase

Answer: 
No the kit does not include the door pulls, but HD sells a really nice pocket door latch (I used the bed and bath version) from Kwikset. Search for "Round Satin Nickel Bed/Bath Pocket Door Lock", I think it comes in brass too.
Its easy to install, has a nice little thumb pull latch that kids can easily use and install in a regular door handle hole.

Answer: 
I would suggest you add a 1/2” to 3/4” piece of plywood to the steel wrapped studs. Then apply the moisture resistant cement board. That should be sturdy enough to apply your tile to.

Answer: 
Cannot give you a definitive answer on this. The split studs are 3 sided metal with wood insert-altogether about 3/4 thick. When properly installed, wallboard applied and door frames trimmed out- they are pretty sturdy. I used moisture resistant drywall on mine and am installing 3 piece "cultured" marble surround around 60 inch shower base. What ever wall material you use the fastener needs to be short Read More

Answer: 
No, the wall with just the two steel reinforced type studs is not strong enough to tile over, I think it would have fairly quickly cracked any tiling that was attached to the stock wall structure.
I had the same issue and what I did was to use 1x4/6 boards to create laminated 2x studs within the framing of the pocket stud area. This did stick out 3/4 inch, so it only cost that much into the shower Read More
No, the wall with just the two steel reinforced type studs is not strong enough to tile over, I think it would have fairly quickly cracked any tiling that was attached to the stock wall structure.
I had the same issue and what I did was to use 1x4/6 boards to create laminated 2x studs within the framing of the pocket stud area. This did stick out 3/4 inch, so it only cost that much into the shower area.
What I did was to pocket screw a 1x4 to the side of the steel studs, then overlay the steel stud and the 1x4 with the 1x6 on the outside of the pocket area. I glued them in addition to screwing the 1x6 to the inner pieces, for added strength. I then did a similar overlayed pattern on the bottom to give a solid nailing surface along the bottom of the pocket area. Doing this on the two stock steel studs gave the equivalence of having two 2x6 laminated beams (with steel reinforcement) in the wall behind were the tile will go. I then put 1/2 inch hardie backer over that, my waterproofing membrane, and then the tiles. The result is a VERY solid wall (that has as little give as the 2x4 stud area beyond the pocket area) that I do not think will ever have a problem with cracking.
I have attached pictures of the top and bottom of the reinforced area, as it took a little tinkering thought to figure out how to get the strength needed and not loose a lot of space within the area I had for the tiled shower.
Hope that helps. Read Less

Answer: 
The "rough in" opening for a 32 inch door is twice 32 plus one inch- or 65 inches-the extra inch is for the jam and trim- so the entire door will go into the pocket- flush with the jam. An edge pull can be purchased.

Answer: 
I used a 3/4 inch trim on both sides of the opening and a 3/8 inch trim for guides when closed on the jam side (so no one could see thru a crack when the door is closed.)
Excluding the jam side trim, there is right at 31 inches of opening, so that leaves 1 inch in the pocket with the trim installed.

Answer: 
Tammie,
If it is a non load bearing wall, it isn't necessary, but it won't hurt anything to put a rough header in. If you are using 80" doors, make the rough opening 84-1/2" tall.

Answer: 
Per the instructions you need a header- just a 2 x 4- with short pieces of 2x4s from the header to the top plate(mine are on 16" centers)and double up the studs on each side of the rough opening. The opening has to be square and plumb. The door track is attached to the studs on either side of the rough opening and is not attached to the header.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 66 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Solid core slab The instructions are vague. The screws are cheap and not long enough. The wood is not true. The rail and rollers/casters are outstanding. It came not fully assembled. So I'm assuming poor quality control. This is my third one but first solid slab door. the middle sagged. Preventing the door keeping open or closed. The door is 50lbs the frame is spec for 200lbs. The instructions Did notcover this. I replaced the channel screws and secured the center of the frame and it works fine. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product and easy install The installation for a normal wall is very easy to do and the instructions are really good. As the wall it was being used on was going to be tiled as a shower on the inside, I did have to add additional support on the inside wall of the pocket door system. I used 1x4/6 stock to attach to the side of the stock braces and then overlap the wider 1x6 pieces to 1x4/steel stuf combination for the equivalent of a 2x6 at each post. I attached the 1x4 with pocket screws to the Johnson stud and then a 1x6 that overlapped those on the inside. This only cost 3/4 inch of space in the shower area and made the inner wall almost as solid as the standard 2x4 wall beyond the pocket door area. Overall VERY happy with their product, just make sure everything is exactly level and plum or your door will have issues. September 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage On Johnson's web site, they make the claim that the "Frame Header: Select solid spruce". When the item arrived, it was made up of CHEAP WHITE PINE with a few staples and the header frame was coming apart. NEVER will I buy this garbage again, and will steer everyone else away from making the same mistake i did. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Installed 2 1500 series Johnson Hardware 32 inch pocket door tracks Project not finished but have installed 2 1500 door tracks- went up easily, appear well constructed but I have not hung doors yet. The cardboard boxy of one of the sets had been broken open in the store and when I started installation I realized 2 floor brackets were missing. I e-mailed Johnson, got a prompt response and 2 new brackets two days later in the mail. I will try to check back in with update when project completed. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Satisfied - Great Product! On a recent project, we converted our 4th bedroom into an extension of the Master bedroom walk-in closet. We used the Johnson Hardware Pocket Door Frame kit and it worked out great. I installed a 28" pocket door, so I had to trim the header of the kit. I found the directions clear, and the kit already had the marks located showing where the cut needs to be depending on door size. The hardware includes everything, even a small wrench for tweaking the angle of the door hang, to attain perfect alignment (though you really want your new header to be square). The included roller bearings are very nice too. I've included pictures showing day 1 project start, thru completion. May 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A fine product Delivery was prompt, item was much sturdier and of greater quality than what I saw in the stores. Installation was also easy in a new wall (as opposed to existing wall). July 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easiest way to install a pocket door! After reading reviews of several pocket door kits I selected the Johnson 1500 Pocket door frame kit. Ordered from Home Depot and got quick FREE delivery to my home. One picture in the instructions could lead you to reverse the header channel during installation but otherwise the directions were very precise. Pocket door replaced inswinging regular door going into washroom. Existing 32" door really took up floor space in the small washroom and was a pain blocking area behind open door. Now it is like a much larger room. Heavy duty ball bearing rollers are slick! Main reason to like this kit beside ease of installation, my wife LOVES it! November 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great and easy to install Everything installed just great. I now want to replace all my doors into pocket doors. I did have an issue with the packaging and pieces. The box was a bit roughed up and may have lost the brackets. I called Johnson's Hardware and they sent the replacement one within a couple days. Then I noticed when following the instructions that the header was not properly marked for specific door sizes. I ended up doing the measurements but feel that there was a lapse in Quality Control. The kits installed just fine and looks great. Remember to measure twice and cut once! May 6, 2014
