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.
Barn door hardware is a unique and appealing new style of interior hardware for doors. But some have asked "why is it called barn door hardware?"

On large barns where particularly large doors were used sometimes a sliding track system was used instead of a swinging hinge system for the doors. With a hinge system the size weight and overall mass of a door are born by just the hinges. That puts a lot of stress on small areas.
