January 19, 2020

Company will also unveil new LaserArt x CeraMax decorative finish  

LAS VEGAS – INOX will showcase its newest products at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, Nevada, from Jan. 21 to 23 in booth SL3104. The company will debut the PD96, the industry’s first-ever sliding door lock that combines an auto-latching and auto-locking feature with the ability to accomplish all five common lockset functions: passage, privacy, entry, classroom and storeroom.  

“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 entryway and perform any required function, meaning only one product is needed for the project. This saves time, money and headache for a spec writer. No other product like this exists and we are excited to debut it at KBIS this year.”

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 fingerprint or retinal scanning.
