Its sometimes referred to as "flat track hardware" because the track itself is made of solid steel flat bar. This gave the track strength and rigidity. Now instead of a vertical hinge system large doors had a horizontal track system that supported them. The horizontal design allowed for the weight of the door to be spread out more evenly across the entire system giving it more strength. It also allowed for the large doors to slide back and forth into position instead of having to swing out. More strength more space more overall ease of operation- that was why this style of hardware was developed and used. And that is where the name "barn door hardware" comes from.
