“The sliding door industry is booming,
especially within commercial application, but there are extremely limited
options for durable hardware,” said Jeff Howes, President of INOX. “The PD96
offers builders and specifiers a complete hardware solution that can fit any

TWEETTHIS: Door hardwarecreator @INOX_Hardware will debut three new offerings at #KBIS2020 in boothSL3104, including the PD96 auto-latching mortise lock for sliding doors,TwistLock for pocket doors and a new finish option, LaserArt x CeraMax.

The PD96 is a commercial-grade lock with
a built-in mechanical auto-latching and auto-locking function. Its ability to
accomplish all five common lockset functions fills a much-needed void in the
industry for hardware that offers the flexibility of the passage function, but
can also be locked securely at night. The PD96 is designed from 304 stainless
steel and is ADA compliant. It is available in Satin or Bright Polished
finishes as well as CeraMax Rainbeaux.

In addition to the PD96, INOX
will be showcasing:

  •  TwistLock™:
    This new pocket door lock offering from INOX is the industry’s first
    combination of a spring-loaded, integrated edge pull that then rotates to
    convert into a lock bolt. This creates a unique two-in-one tubular lock option
    that fits into one standard pocket door prep.
  • LaserArt
    x CeraMax: This new decorative offering from INOX combines the bold brilliant
    colors of CeraMax Rainbeaux with the intricate, personalized
    engravings of Laser Art.
  • PD97: INOX’s PD97 is the industry’s first motor-driven
    electromechanical mortise lock for sliding doors and features an Advanced Stepper
    Motor. The PD97 can work with any type of access control, from keypads to
