Krownlab Launches Top-Of-The-Line Oden Sliding Door Hardware System
Featuring Krownlab’s Next-Generation Sliding Door Platform, the Ultra-Modern System’s Track Appears to Float Along the Wall
Architectural hardware designer and manufacturer Krownlab announced the formal launch of Oden, the company’s top-of-the-line sliding door hardware system, according to Krownlab founder and CEO Stefan Andrén.
“Oden has always stood out as our purest, simplest design,” Andrén said. “Now we’ve combined Oden’s minimal design aesthetics with the industry’s most feature-rich sliding door hardware platform. The added functionality totally changes the game.”
Available in both Brushed Stainless and Black Stainless finishes and featuring a custom-extruded track, Oden elegantly sidesteps visible fasteners. The track appears to simply float along the wall. And Oden’s trolleys use Krownlab’s iconic, patented, exposed bearings as wheels.
Oden’s high weight capacity also enables virtually limitless design freedom. From door panels made of solid wood, to oversized frameless glass, Oden works with panels weighing up to 400 lbs., doing so without compromising its effortless movement.
Also built into Oden are Krownlab’s other 2016 high-end system upgrades:
• Tru-Level™ System – Allows for a full ½” of total adjustment across trolley and each mounting point, even after installation
• Field-modifiable track: Track can be cut and drilled with commonly available tools to adapt to even the most quickly changing jobsites
• Infinitely adjustable door stops: Door stops can be quickly and easily adjusted to anywhere along the length of the track at any time with a simple Allen wrench
The Oden system has an industry-leading 10-year warranty, backed by rigorous wear trials: Krownlab has teamed with LiftMaster to create a testing system that runs their systems 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to simulate the most strenuous installation environments possible. Krownlab’s Oden sliding door hardware system has been put through 1,000,000 open-and-close cycles and counting, or the equivalent of almost a century of extensive use.
The Oden sliding door hardware system is available in single, bi-parting, and bypassing door configurations. Each configuration maintains the simple, modern design. Even in bypassing, the system simply mounts to the wall without using a bracket to support the outmost track, preserving the hovering effect its truly concealed fasteners provide.
Krownlab fabricates its hardware in Portland, OR, and sells direct in the commercial architectural interiors market throughout North America. Stefan Andrén, a former product design director for Nike and Motorola, founded Krownlab in 2009 to develop high-quality architectural products that facilitate efficient, creative, and beautiful interior spaces. All Krownlab products feature an industry-leading 10-year warranty, and every component is manufactured from the highest-quality materials and individually tested before leaving its facility.
