Barn Door / May 20, 2018 / Genevieve Roux.
There are several popular applications for barn door hardware. One example is for separating one room from another where before there was just an open doorway. For example an open passageway between a den and a hallway. Here barn door hardware can be used in a 2-door sliding system where the doors can slide into the open position unobtrusively or slide into the closed position to partition that room. Another use of the hardware has a smaller end application. It can be used for a unique and rustic window covering or for an entertainment center covering.
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.
This allows you to open the top half of the door for feeding your horse while keeping them safe and secure inside. Double Dutch hinges are actually two hinges in one. There are actually two hinges mounted to one frame thus allowing you to achieve the over-under door combination. Double Dutch hinges come on various lengths depending on how heavy your door is. The most common length is either 12" or 17" long and most of the time they are secured with simple black screws. Indoor Barn door hinges There are several options for indoor barn door hinges as well. Most often these are lighter duty in nature and much shorter in length than the exterior barn door hinges.
