How the heavy duty steel pocket door frame evolved:

Jim and Mike Christner are a father and son team who take pride in the tradition of excellence acquired from over sixty years experience in the construction industry. Christner Construction has been a licensed and bonded framing and trim contractor in the custom home market in Phoenix, Arizona, since 1974. 

This distinction comes from work ethics instilled in Jim while growing up on a farm in central Ohio in a large Mennonite family with Amish roots. Hard work and honesty are characteristics that have been passed down and carried over into the company and its customer relations.

Framing large custom homes, Christner established a reputation for craftsmanship and quality, a foundation of the company. It’s because of their framing experience that they saw the need for a heavy duty pocket door frame.

Christner Woodworkers became a specialty division that manufactures steel pocket door frames kits utilizing tubular steel posts and a manufactured lvl header which prevent warping and twisting while providing rigid strength and stability.The streamlined design creates a top of the line heavy duty pocket door frame that’s competitive in its market.

With Christner’s steel post system, the pocket door set is once again a favorite option for today’s marketplace. Customers can expect a maintenance free product, solid, yet gliding quietly and easily while meeting many space saving and design solutions.
