Ezy Jamb wins the 2016 Architectural Record Magazine Award for Openings for the second-straight year.

Ezy Jamb has been acknowledged for its unique design of architectural products that support a strong commitment to innovation, usefulness and aesthetics.

425 entries were evaluated by the degree of innovation, usefulness, and aesthetics, and six architectural professionals, judging this year’s contest, rated the Ezy Jamb ISD Inswing Door Jamb as one of the best.

Last year, the Ezy Jamb SRC Single Rabbet Trimless Doorframe won the 2015 Openings award and the Ezy Jamb ISD Inswing Door Jamb has earned the same award.

InSwing Frameless Jamb–with concealed door hinges–wins over the judges

The InSwing frame system is designed for the door to be flush with the wall on the exterior side of the opening, but allows the door to swing into the room.

“To be recognized two years in a row is a great achievement for Ezy Jamb,” says Ezy Jamb North America Sales Manager Brandon Johnson. “It really emphasizes the innovation that goes into our new product development.”

Ezy Jamb’s new London office has opened to support the new product rollout in 2017. By analyzing over a decade’s worth of highly valued customer feedback–and intensive research and development– Ezy Jamb has improved and refined its global product portfolio, and part of this involves expanding Ezy Jamb’s presence in the United Kingdom.

Introducing new Ezy Jamb products for architects and specifiers

“In 2017, we will also expand what’s available in the UK, which includes a single rebate frame, a flush inward opening frame and a complete pocket door system all incorporating the Ezy Jamb clean line technology,” said Ben Stevens, Global Managing Director for Ezy Jamb. “We felt that the time was right to open up a new office in London to support our UK customers and the new product roll out.”

 

The new SRC (Single Rebate) Ezy Jamb frame gives an even cleaner look than the original Ezy Jamb EZC system, and is made from a higher grade of steel. It  wraps around the wall and is plastered up prior to installation. This gives it a completely seamless look. Due to its robust heavy grade, it is better suited for higher use installations such as hotels, commercial and retail buildings.

So if you are an architect or specifier looking for something unique and modern for any of your long term projects, take a look at our new products to see if they might meet your need.

Commercial and Residential Modern Pocket Doors: Benefits and Features

Pocket doors are used in commercial and residential designs – and, interestingly enough, were also quite popular in the Victorian era, especially in the late 1800s and early 1900s. They were used as entrances to dining areas, libraries and sitting rooms – but were much noisier than today’s quiet versions. The difference is because of modern materials, hardware and construction techniques found in high quality products.

People in the Victorian era and in the 21st century share a common reason for choosing pocket doors – and that’s their space saving features. These doors slide into a wall compartment, not swinging out into working or living space; so, if you use them throughout a structure or even just in strategic places, significant space is saved. And, you know that phrase, “perception is reality?” Opening up pocket doors, especially double ones, can create an illusion of spaciousness that’s even beyond what is physically available.

Here are four more benefits of modern pocket doors:

Benefit #1: Contemporary Appearance

If clean design lines appeal to you, along with the elimination of clutter, then pocket doors are ideal. This eliminates doors jutting into working or living space to destroy that sleek look. Simplicity, remember, is the “ultimate sophistication” – a philosophy of the great Renaissance master, Leonardo Da Vinci.

Benefit #2: Functional and Versatile

If you are planning a series of conference rooms in an office building, use pocket doors strategically to have the option of opening them up into larger ones. Or, if you’re designing a home, you can build in versatility in living areas, dining areas and more. Place modern pocket doors between the kitchen and a dining room; for elegant occasions, keep them closed and decorate the dining area appropriately. For relaxing times with family and friends, open them up and people can enjoy the extra space.

Benefit #3: Convenience

You really need to lug in that big basket of laundry – or all of those boxes of office supplies – but there are sets of doors blocking you. Now, where did you put that wedge to keep them open? Pocket doors eliminate the problem.

Benefit #4: Provides Handicap Accessibility

People who rely upon wheelchairs need easy access and maneuverability throughout homes and commercial buildings. To make that happen, simply open up pocket doors, with double doors even more effective.

From EzyJamb Pocket Door Frames to Rocyork Modern Pocket Door Hardware

To get the best of the benefits of pocket doors in your buildings, it’s important to choose the right brand, whether for residential or commercial purposes.

Advantages of our modern pocket door frame include:

  • Strong and secure assembly thanks to cold-rolled steel manufacturing with a patented profile
  • Clean line appearance thanks to flush jointing with a jamb with perforated sides
  • Simple installation, with no special maintenance required
  • Adjustability in wall thickness with a split-type jamb

You can also choose from a range of modern pocket door hardware to fit differing needs and applications. Questions? Contact us online today!

High Rise Luxury in Midtown chooses EZYJamb/ROCYork for minimal interior spaces…

At the centre of it all and amidst the hustle of NYC tourism and construction, you will find some of the most luxurious condominiums being erected.

The former failed hotel Flatotel located at 135 West 52nd Street is being converted into condominiums and remaking itself as the “affordable luxury” home-base of Midtown. 135 West 52nd offers new condominiums for sale in New York’s most exciting Midtown Manhattan location where Broadway, Fifth Avenue and Central Park meet.

The 47 storey building is undergoing an extreme makeover and will include 109 apartments that range from one to four bedrooms. Five spectacular penthouses are also planned, plus 12,000 square feet of amenities packed into a residents’ club. Prices are set to range from $1.5 million to over $15 million. EZYJamb clean line frames and concealed door hinges from ROCYork were used to complete the flush interior walls.

French lighting artist Thierry Dreyfus was engaged to design a “prominent and permanent” 40-storey LED light installation for the building’s facade. Dreyfus is world renowned for his installations in the United States, France and China including Chateau de Versailles and Notre Dame, Lyon Biennale and the Grand Biennale.

This hotel to condo conversion project has been estimated to cost $250 million..
