As you know, our single track bypass hardware is patent pending for utility patent, and the news is that we're almost there with having it granted! Stay tune for the official news.
The utility patent different from that of a design patent. In our case, the utility patent is on the concept of having two doors bypassing on one track instead of two tracks. Anyone trying to make two doors bypass on the same track using similar ideas, even if it doesn't look like ours, would be infringing on the patent. A design patent is how something looks, one would have to copy that design exactly to be infringing. What we have would be the utility patent.
We developed the Single Track Bypass Hardware because the double track one is too bulky looking. The balance between the hardware and the doors are lost. The heaviness of the hardware would be weighing on your eyes until you don't see the doors anymore :) The single track would create a cleaner profile, and less hardware to look at, or to tackle with.
We have three main finishes for our hardware: Raw steel, stainless steel, and solid brass. In the raw steel, there are two styles, the Heavy Metal with straight hangers and arrowhead, with arrowhead hangers! Upon request, we can do a powder coated black on the raw steel hardware.
All our hardware are MADE IN CANADA and are made by us! We are grateful for all the support from our communities in Canada and the USA. Let's keep it local! We like it that way!
In June 2016, we found a charming white building in South Etobicoke that used to be a machine shop. The building belonged to the same family for 60 years. It was perfect for our brick and mortar, with the showroom in the front and the workshop in the back.
We recently finished solid white oak slabs doors for a third floor master bedroom in Riverdale, Toronto. These doors cover each of the openings on this floor: top of staircase, walk-in closet, bathroom, and the bedroom. A paradise in your own home.
This house was designed and built by ModernKind Inc
I had a little visit with the new NXL Architect office a few days ago at 31 Scarsdale Rd.
We made the sliding doors that covers almost the entire strip of the office's right side where the board rooms are. We even made the sliding hardware specifically for these doors as they were quite heavy being 2-1/4" thick of Baltic birch plywood with fluted glass panels.
I couldn't be more happy to see such a beautiful office that seems more like a playground as it was done so thoughtfully and creatively. We are so proud to have worked on this project.

And old factory in New Market has been turned info beautiful living lofts. But what is missing in these lofts are the real barn doors that truly transforms the space. We retrofitted three openings in this two-bedroom unit, two openings with double doors, and one single door closet, and home couldn't be cozier.
