Minimal aesthetic: Rorik by Krownlab

Developed for heavy-use hospitality projects, the Rorik system can be configured to fit most shower designs.

Architectural hardware designer and manufacturer Krownlab launched Rorik, its first-ever sliding shower door system. Developed for heavy-use hospitality projects, the Rorik system can be configured to fit most shower designs.

It is compatible with a range of shower door sizes, including panels up to a half-inch thick, or more traditional ⅜-inch thick panels. It can accommodate openings up to six feet wide. Compatible with tile or concrete shower pans, Rorik is available in alcove or glass corner configurations. Available in brushed or black stainless finishes, the Rorik sliding door shower system adapts Krownlab’s sliding door hardware system to feature an all stainless-steel bearing as a wheel. The hardware rolls on a track that appears to float along the fixed glass panel, thanks to concealed fasteners. The wall attachment point is also hidden in a specially engineered wall socket that completes the minimal aesthetic of the system.

The Rorik system can be moved with a single finger. The lateral rigidity unique to the track system enables the track to be installed at heights of 6’5” and higher, depending upon door size. Rorik can also be installed to accommodate up to 36” openings, meeting ADA requirements for roll-in or transition needs.

The system’s track is designed to be both cut and drilled in the field with commonly available tools. The Tru-Level System gives a full quarter-inch of adjustment at each mounting point, including where the shower track attaches to the bathroom wall. The door-panel adjustment feature allows the system to be raised or lowered at each bearing by an eighth of an inch. This gives installers the ability to tilt the panel to accommodate shower walls that are up to 3/8” out-of-plumb. Installers can fine-tune the system during or after installation with flexible site adjustability.

Krownlab fabricates its hardware in Portland, Ore.
