In an increasingly digital world where products are produced remotely, Krownlab remains dedicated to keeping the creation of our architectural hardware, from design to finishes, in Portland, Oregon. This allows us to be ruthless in our process. Every detail is considered and every part justified in our drive to make sliding door hardware systems that put functionality first. And, because of the care put into every component, Krownlab sliding door hardware performs to the highest standard with smooth, quiet door travel. We guarantee all our products for an industry-leading 10-years and back it with extensive product trialling. We teamed with LiftMaster to create a sophisticated testing system that puts each sliding door hardware system through extreme-use scenarios. We set out to break everything we make, putting products through the ringer and then addressing each failing. The result is sliding door hardware that will perform beautifully in the most punishing environments throughout the decades.
“THERE IS A LEVEL OF TRUST GIVEN KROWNLAB’S ATTENTION TO DETAIL, CRAFTSMANSHIP, AND QUALITY."
Scott Wilson, Founder and Chief Creative Officer, MINIMAL
We didn’t reinvent the wheel, we reinvented the bearing. All of our sliding door hardware systems feature custom, patented industrial bearings for a modern, iconic aesthetic. And we are constantly innovating. Our architectural hardware is designed for professionals with the highest design standards. The hardest thing in product design is to make something that looks simple. We pushed ourselves to do just that. Our bearings, trolley brackets, and custom-extruded, fastener-concealing track, feature minimal, ingenious design. And we always sweat the small stuff. Our finishes are considered throughout the process. We never use paints or powder coats which can mar an install by flaking or chipping. Instead, we work with our premium materials to bring out modern, elegant finishes that pair perfectly with our hardware and don’t deteriorate with use. Finally, each Krownlab sliding door hardware system has an enormous amount of adjustability built in. Our products absorb the inevitable jobsite inaccuracies that can undermine even the best products, ensuring installations come out well time and time again.
