Johnson's 1700RD Multi-folding or Room Dividing Door Hardware is designed to light weight door panels or shutters in residential or light commercial interior applications. The 1700RD is 'top hung' hardware, all door weight is suspended from the top track therefore does not require any bottom tracking. The 1700RD allows door panels to be removed or installed without dropping the track. The 1700RD features a jump proof box track track with positive pivot lock, 4-wheeled hanger guides, adjustable bottom pivot and a floor bracket with an adjustable bottom pivot socket. Track lengths are available up to 16'.
1700RD Ordering Instructions
1700RD Multi-Fold Hardware are configured according to application, in effect you build the 1700RD to suit your particular installation requirements. Follow the steps below to build your 1700RD hardware set.
Step 1. Order Track to Desired Length
In standard applications track is usually ordered in lengths that at least equal the overall opening width. Johnson Hardware recommends that single track lengths be used whenever possible to avoid door hangers passing over track splices during operation. Track splicing is acceptable only if hanger wheels DO NOT pass over the splice. If multiple track lengths are to be used in a single opening, ensure that track and door panels are positioned so that no door hanger/guide passed over track splice.
Step 2. Order Base Set A
Base Hardware Set A contains all the pivots, brackets, hangers and mounting screws to hang the 1st pair of panels from a single jamb. Order base hardware set A (1715BS-A) for the first pair of panels off jamb as indicated. Order 1 base set A when all panels operate from a single direction. Order 2 base sets A's when panels will operate from two directions, converging panels that meet in the middle of the opening.
Step 3. Order Add-On Set B
Order one add-on hardware set B (1725AOSB) for every pair of panels after Base Set A as indicated.
