Also it is a good idea that when it comes to purchasing the wood for your barn door you purchase wood which has already been treated. Then this means that you wont have to worry about adding a protective coating to the barn door you are building until after construction has been completed. However if you are going to use untreated wood then after cutting the various pieces of wood to size it is a good idea to add a protective coating to them before construction begins. This will help to ensure that all areas of the door are protected from the elements and ensure that water from the ground will not be absorbed by the wood at the base. When it comes to coating the wood you have chosen to use to build a barn door you have a number of options available to you. You can either stain or paint the wood which one you choose will of course depend on the kind of coating that has been used on the rest of the barn to protect it.

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.
