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.
Most often pinnel hinges are black in nature and can be mechanically made or hand forged from a piece of wrought iron. Long strap hinges are also an effective hinge for barn doors. Unlike pinnel hinges these are face mounted with several screws or lag bolts. These are often 15" to 20" in length and use heavy duty lag screws for installation. They are usually painted or powder coated in black. Another popular barn door hinge is the colonial strap hinge. These are flat in nature and feature a round over portion on the end giving a colonial old-time look.
