The EZY Jamb ISD Inswing Door Jamb wins US Architectural Record Magazine's Opening Award


EZY Jamb walks away with another WIN at the 2016 US Architectural Record Magazine Awards. Six architectural professionals, serving as jurors in this year’s contest, rated 425 entries according to usefulness, aesthetics, and degree of innovation, and determined that the EZY Jamb ISD Inswing Door Jamb was one of the best.

For a second year running EZYJamb has been acknowledged for its unique design of architectural products that support a strong commitment to innovation, usefulness and aesthetics.

In 2015 the EZY Jamb SRC Single Rabbet Trimless Doorframe impressed Architectural Record’s judges, being awarded the winner in the “Openings” category and now in 2016 the EZYJamb ISD Inswing Door Jamb has been given the same honor.

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.

Introducing new EzyJamb products for architects and specifiers.

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.

“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 EzyJamb 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. If you like what you see, reach out to us at EZY Jamb UK so we can discuss your project requirements.

EZConcept continue to innovate with the introduction of the AccessDor range of access panels.

Continuing the distinctive clean line and flush finish aesthetic the range consists of standard fitment panels and custom size frames to conceal unsightly electrical, hvac, or plumbing fixtures.

The four sided flush fitting frame assembly allows the access door to finish out flush to the wall, leaving just a 1/8” reveal between the door and wall.   

Accessdor is another great example of how EZConcept global architectural solutions are continuing to create architecturally innovative building systems.

Benefits of Modern Pocket Doors

Whether you are designing and/or developing residential or commercial buildings, there are significant benefits in using pocket doors. Here are some of the most important.

Stylish Contemporary Appearance; Contemporary design uses sleek and clean lines, eliminating clutter – and doors jutting into living or working space break through those lines to ruin the effect. To quote the Renaissance master, Leonardo Da Vinci, “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” with upscale pocket doors an ideal embodiment of that philosophy.

Space Saving Features; Because this type of door slides into a compartment in the wall – rather than swinging out into living or working space – significant space is saved, especially if modern pocket doors are used throughout the structure. And, besides saving actual space, when pocket doors are used between rooms, opening them up creates a more spacious effect.

Functional and Versatile; You can use double doors, for example, to turn two conference rooms into one larger one. In a home, they can separate a kitchen from a dining room or breakfast nook. When the homeowner wants privacy in the kitchen so that guests can enjoy the ambiance of an elegant dining area, he or she can simply shut the doors. When it’s an informal gathering where family and friends are relaxing together, open them up.

Convenient; Let’s say you’re lugging in boxes of office supplies into the company storage area – or carrying clean clothes from the laundry room. It can be a pain to have to have someone else hold the door open or wedge something under the door and watch it slip and slide, and maybe shut. Pocket doors solve the problem.

Handicap Accessible; When wheelchair access is needed, you can simply open up the modern pocket doors, with double doors providing plenty of opening. This allows the person easy access and maneuverability.

Quiet Pocket Door Frame Construction; You might be remembering pocket doors from the past, where noisy rollers were a downside and when doors didn’t fit well within the tracks. Modern materials and construction techniques have solved that – at least when you buy high quality products.

Zaha Hadid's international body of work is largely defined by graceful curves inspired by nature. She brings this sensibility to 520 West 28th, marking a dramatic shift away from the hard angles that dominate standard residential architecture.

The building's elegant hand-rubbed metal facade is driven by one continuous line, which loops its way skywards. These dynamic curves create a distictive chevron pattern that ebraces interlacing levels, maximizing privacy and security between residences. As the chevron weaves up from the ground, its folds create a multi-level design that links residence exteriors and interiors together in one sweeping movement. The result is a verticallandscape sitting directly on the High Line, comprising of 39 unique residences.

EzyJamb SRC and ISD frames prepared for concealed hinges were chosen to compliment the simplistic, contemporary interior spaces.

Yale Students are challenged to create a cost-efficient and flexible design prototype that could be applied to sites in New Haven and other urban areas across the country. The brief was focused on a 1,000 square foot house to be located on a corner lot in New Haven’s West River neighbourhood.
