Krownlab’s sliding door hardware systems can be mounted to a variety of surfaces. Ragnar, Oden, Baldur, and Rob Roy are compatible with each of the wall types below, while Axel works with only framed walls. There is nothing special you’ll need to buy to install your Krownlab hardware, just make the appropriate wall type selection as you checkout, and we’ll include all the needed materials in your shipment.
Some general best practices to follow when installing your sliding door hardware, no matter the surface, include:
Double check your specific hardware’s mounting height requirements before you begin drilling (excluding glass walls).
For framed and concrete walls, drill a pilot hole for each mounting point.
Make sure that each mounting point engages an appropriate amount of structural material.
Loosely install one end of your track with the appropriate track spacers and hardware first, then swing up the track and fasten the other end rather than trying to install the track in its final position to start.
For more specific considerations based on wall type. See below:
Framed Walls (Wood or Metal Studs)
Framed walls with wood or metal studs must have 3” of solid wood blocking secured to studs or other framing materials. Our framed wall kits include the appropriate-sized lag bolts to fasten the sliding door track into the blocking. Click here for more information on blocking for sliding door hardware with metal or wood studs.
Our glass wall mounting kit includes hardware compatible with glass walls 3/8" and 1/2" thick. We can include custom hardware for thicker glass walls by special request, just let us know in the comment section at checkout. Please note that bypassing hardware systems are not available for glass wall installations.
Concrete and masonry walls must be solid and thicker than the minimum required thread engagement of your system’s hardware. Concrete kits include the appropriate-sized screw-in anchors to fasten the sliding door track to the concrete wall.
Steel beams must be structural in nature and have a minimum thickness of ¼”. Note that you cannot attach this hardware to sheet metal studs. Steel kits include the appropriate-sized bolts to fasten your sliding door track to the beam.
