Product Details

The Soft Close and Open 1500 Series is an easily assembled, premium quality commercial/residential kit for installing a pocket door into a 2 in. x 4 in. stud wall and can be cut down to accept door sizes between 28 in. to 36 in. The Soft Close units will work when the door is opening and closing. Pocket doors do not need "swing" room, saving valuable floor space while still assuring the full privacy of a standard door. All of the components are of the highest quality and durability which is why we can offer a lifetime warranty.
  • Johnson Hardware offers a true lifetime warranty and will replace any item found defective in material or workmanship regardless of its date of purchase
  • Soft-close and open option smoothly brakes and pulls the pocket door into the opened or closed position
  • Balanced 3 wheel tricycle hangers ensure that all wheels carry weight evenly for a life time of smooth operation
  • Precision extruded box track is made of heavy-walled aluminum and guarantees that your door will not jump track
  • Convex rails on box track ensure free rolling
  • 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
  • Speak to an Associate about Doors and Windows. Call 1-833-HDAPRON (432-7766) for free design, purchase and installation help daily from 9AM – 9PM EST.

Q:Would any part of the hardware and frame rust? The job site is next to the ocean. Thanks!

Answer This Question

A:  I don’t feel like it should be an issue.

by|Jan 26, 2023

    A:  The steel parts are either plated or galvanized, so you have some protection against rust. If this is used in an interior application, you should be good for a long time. I would not suggest using this in an exterior application, though.

      Q:What?s the spacing of the steel studs? 16 O.C.?
      by|Jan 11, 2023

      Answer This Question

      A:  The studs don't come connected to the frame. You have to screw them into place. I would recommend placing them 16 on center.

      by|Jan 15, 2023

        A:  The spacing will vary depending on the width of your door. One stud pair is set at the front of the opening, and the other is set halfway into the pocket.

        by|Jan 13, 2023

          A:  They are adjustable. You attach them to the floor and the top rail. All the needed screws were supplied.

            Q:if i cut the bottom off to shorten the height of the door, what procedure would be required to mend the frame back to functional state? would sheet metal fasteners suffice? is welding necessary? thanks!
            by|Dec 31, 2022
            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  The only thing you would be cutting (to accommodate your height) are the metal studs, and the door. The top frame (how the door is held on) should not be disturbed. The trim will also be cut to size, but that is after the door is installed. 

            by|Jan 2, 2023

              A:  If you cut off the bottom of the uprights, you’ll still be able to slide the floor plate into the bottom of the uprights just fine. No “mending” needed.

                Q:Can this unit be installed with access to only one side of the wall? I will need to install everything while working from one side of the wall, there's no access from the opposite wall. Thanks.

                A:  Generally, we say you must construct an entirely new rough opening, but I do know some people have left the drywall up on one side. There would have to be some drywall touch up in a situation like that, though. You would have to do so at your own risk. We don't have any suggestions on how best to do this.

                  A:  Yes, one of my pock door installations had partial access to the wall. Only from one side and it was a breeze. I did have access to the full length of the header from one side.

                    I used two of these kits to install double glass panel French pocket doors in our remodeled dining room. Even though this was my first pocket door install, it went well and the end result is wonderful. The doors operate very smoothly and the soft open/close feature amazes everyone that sees it. Quality is excellent and the end result is much better than the rest of the pocket doors that were installed in the home by the original builder 13 years ago.

                    This pocket door appears to be good quality. The instructions on manual are a little confusing and the screws it comes with are not clearly indicated where to be used on.

                    The Johnson Hardware Soft Close and Open 1500 28 in. to 36 in. x 80 in. Steel Upright Universal Pocket Door Frame was an excellent choice for my project. Existing electrical obstructions (wall switches) made it impossible to use the existing wall, so I built-out the wall by adding another 2x4 wall up against the existing wall. I then pre-assembled everything and stood it up in the opening. The soft open/close features are fantastic. I hung the original solid wood 50lb door. The door operates very smoothly and quiet too. Now I have 3ft of usable space that was previously taken up by the swing of the door. This is a very solid pocket door frame. I highly recommend this product.

                    Works extremely well, and really makes a pocket door a luxury option instead of feeling like a compromise.

                    Great product and it works great. Only problem is the locking mechanism only comes with two screws.
