Generally, there is meant to be a header with this pocket door frame, so it will not be able to go fully in the ceiling.

i have a 28" rough opening would i use a 24" door or 28"

Asked by boilerman May 31, 2020

Answer

This frame is for a 24 inch wide door that is 96 inches tall. If you want to use a 28" door, you would need a rough opening width of 57", and you would want to use a 152480HD, assuming you are using a 96" tall door. If you want to use a 24" door, you would need a rough opening width of 49". The rough opening width when using the 1500 Series with a single door is 2 times the door width plus 1 inch.

Can this be installed as two opposed units to create a 48" wide opening?

Answer

Yes, you would order two of these frames and a 1555PPK3 converging door kit. You’d just cut the frames down for 24” doors. Or you can order two of the 152080HD frames, so that the frames are already cut to size.

This unit is for 84” tall doors. If you want to use it with an 80” tall door, you will have to cut 4” off of each upright/split stud.

Answer

This frame is for a 24” wide by 84” tall door, just as the description shows. 84” tall doors aren’t standard, but they are readily available. If you have 80” tall doors, you likely can buy our 153068PF in your local store. If you want that frame to be rated for 200 lbs, you would just buy the 153068PF with a 1060SOFT in the store. The 1060SOFT increases the weight rating to 200 lbs and enables you to soft close or open in one direction. Most of the Home Depot stores carry the 153068PF and 1060SOFT in the Millwork Dept. If you have already bought this unit, you can just cut 4” off of the bottom of the uprights to use with 80” tall doors.

Answer

I know people have been able to do this. Just be aware that when you take the studs out of the wall, there will be some drywall touch up that will have to be done on the drywall sheet that is left up due to drywall nails or screws being ripped out.

Beast to install. This is the heavy duty one and the one I got that was 28 x 96 was direct fit and not cut to size universal. Also different than the instructions was the metal studs did not have 2x2 wood inserts, they were completely metal with self tapping machine screws for the drywall and casing. Total beast to install wood to metal. Every hole required a predrill. No contractor would return my call once the heard the word pocket. Took me 2 weeks of hard labor but happy with the results. I think the walls tornado rated for an f5 now.

Door adjusters adjust themselves. I have had our builder fix it twice and they will have to be back a third time. They said they wrapped a wire around it to act as a lock nut. Last time one end unscrewed itself until it completely detached and fell on the floor. What are they doing wrong? Is locking the adjuster done only by the latch?

I wouldn't recommend this product to an average homeowner. More for the semi professional installer. The product has poor directions which confused me more than helped and missing hardware. User experience on YouTube was essential for installation. I did like the metal wrapped 'studs' and the set screw wall fasteners. The quality of the product was above average.

Pros: The sliding track, hardware, and door header are excellent, much better then several others I looked at. Cons: Only 4 2X2's (2 for each side) are provided. While being encased in metal help, they still allow the wall to flex too much. So I added to 2X2s to each side of the wall, plus I added 2X2 nailing surface at floor level for a nailing surface for floor base. See the picture I enclosed. Also, the instructions need more detail. Being a veteran do-it-yourselfer, I was able to figure it out, but I would suggest looking at the installation instructions online and calling their support with any questions before purchasing. Would I purchase again, yes, it worked out find for me.

Adequate but has some flaws: 1. Bare wood is visible after installation, overhead next to the track. Hard to paint or stain neatly after installation, so instructions should suggest doing so beforehand. 2. Plastic door guides cannot be adjusted horizontally, and they need that option. Furthermore they may look barely OK on white doors, but the company needs to add at least brown and black ones too. 3. The half-studs are too weak and let the wall flex after installation. They need much stiffer steel.

Response from Johnson Hardware StaffMarch 23, 2017
Riverbrook,

For most pocket door applications, that bare wood is covered with finish trim. So you don't see it after the installation is finish trimmed out.

As for the guides, there is horizontal adjustment due to the bottom being thicker than the top. When the guide is adjusted up, it pushes the door further into the pocket. As for how it looks, we do offer a hidden guide option, our 2041PLBG.

As for the wood studs, we do offer one of the stiffest options out there. Our metal studs are 18 gauge galvanized steel wrapping spruce, pine, or fir wood. Many of the competitors out there offer thinner 24 gauge studs. But, you are correct, there will be some flex to the wall. It's hard to not have some flex when having a pocket door. In the future, we will be offering metal clips that will allow you to fill in between the studs with plywood. That will stiffen the wall while also offering better backing for things such as towel bars and cabinetry. JohnsonHardware

Pocket door frame was relatively simple to install and works well. Wish we'd had these when we renovated 20 years ago! No wasted space on either side of the wall due to the swing of a traditional door. We would use the door again.
