The inlay handles are the one part of pocket door hardware that is decorative. You can get them in silver gold and plastic. The metal pocket door hardware is able to be etched or engraved which is recommended if you want some style. Sliding door hardware is slightly less hard to get hold of than that of pocket doors. Their located near the back of the house leading out to the pool or the deck. The sliding door hardware is primarily a sturdy plastic but it doesnt have to be. It can be replaced with metal of aluminum or you can go high hog and get silver or gold.
Another reason pocket doors are slipping out of style is because of the inconveniently small latches that act as the doors closing mechanism. When that door is tucked away in the wall it will typically stay there for the majority of its life and thats largely due to the fact that the little latch is awkward and inconvenient. Doors that are on a sliding door hardware system remain outside the wall making them easily accessible. Additionally since they remain outside the wall this gives homeowners the exciting opportunity to attach a unique and classy pull to their door.
Pocket door hardware is functional and has no bearing on physical appearance. The pocket door hardware includes rails of metal or plastic with rollers or casters that allows the door to glide into and out of an extended wall on either side to seal off a room. The pocket door hardware can be cheap or expensive. The expensive side allows your doors to remain steady and glide shut easily whereas the cheaper will have you seeing your door sag and be tougher to pull shut.
Door locks come in a huge variety and this variety gets even greater if you look at how they have evolved through time. The basic principle of most locks is a bolt of some sort. This bolt need only be some sort of bar cylinder lug or other contrivance that extends from the swinging part of the door into some kind of receiving area on the frame. This simply stops the door from swinging open.
