CA – INOX introduces the PD96, the industry’s
first commercial-grade sliding door lock that combines a built-in auto-latching
and auto-locking feature with the ability to accomplish the five most common
lockset functions: passage, privacy, entry/office, classroom and storeroom. The
PD96 is a complete locking solution for sliding doors that allows architects,
planners and designers to more easily incorporate sliding doors into their
projects and increase the amount of usable space within a floorplan.
“A sliding door can save up to 30 square feet within a space as compared to a swing door, but architects historically couldn’t specify them because of the lack of lock options for a sliding door,” said INOX President Jeff Howes. “With the complete locking solutions of the PD96, architects can increase the overall value of a project for their clients by specifying sliding doors. This leads to more usable square footage and more space efficiency.”

The PD96 uses the same basic lock case for the passage, entry/office, classroom and storeroom functions and the trim determines each function. Only the privacy function requires a different lock case. This flexibility makes the entire process from specifying to installation and replacement simpler and allows for the application of a customized function per passageway. In a healthcare space, for example, the PD96 can be installed on an exam room door in the passage function while a second lock in the storeroom function could be installed on a supply closet down the hall.
The PD96 is ADA compliant, provides emergency egress and is designed from 304 stainless steel to withstand commercial construction and application. It is available in several trims and comes in Satin or Bright Polished Stainless Steel as well as CeraMax ceramic-coating finishes.
