Barn Door / May 21, 2018 / Genevieve Roux
When considering barn doors for your next project consider the following hardware and doors as well as their purposes so you can get the right products. All hardware packages come with mounting instructions so you can get it right the first time. Modern Sliding Door Hardware This type has metal brackets with a wooden roller with a maximum holding weight capacity of 200 pounds. The wooden roller contrasts nicely with the metal brackets which rolls quietly each and every time the door is moved. This type of hardware would be great for areas that need quiet doors such as a nursery or office.
When gliding open portion of the door hangs towards the outside of the rooms wall looking like a piece of decoration in the room. And when closed it looks like a classy enclosure that one intends it to be. Flat Track Design As mentioned above this style has a track which is mounted over the doorway stretching along the length of the wall with a couple of track hangers which can be attached to the door knobs and revolve horizontally down the length of the track. The track is built of solid steel. Due to the physics involved this kind of setup provides the track with exceptional power. Solid Steel Construction The hanger track and practically every single part of the system are made of solid steel. This is important to the style strength and largely the durability of barn door hardware.
The doors in this type of application are smaller with varying widths and heights depending on the size of the window or television that is being covered. The type of use that is to be highlighted here is with glass doors. These are commonly found in bathrooms and are often lightly etched in part or whole to give them that classic "frosty" or "cloudy" white look. Frosted glass doors not only make for great shower doors but theyre also fantastic as bathroom entry doors. Because of the fragile nature of glass doors the movement hardware must be particularly gentle.
