Historically used on outdoor projects such as in stables and barns,barn doors are now a popular design feature for any home or business project. We offer a large variety of barn door slab syles and customization. When building your barn door on our website, you have plenty of options to customize it. You will choose your door dimensions, wood species, panel style, and door finish.
Barn doors operate simply by sliding from side to side hanging on a track installed on the ceiling or wall. There are different hardware systems available, and you can select one that best fits your needs and style.
Standard Barn Door System:In this system, a track is fixed on the wall or ceiling, and a single door panel (slab) is hang by its sides and opens and closes by sliding to the sides. This system also includes pocket doors. Pocket doors run in pockets on the wall instead of being parallel in front of the wall.
Bi-Parting Door System:like in the standard system, one track is fixed on the wall, but instead of one, there are two door slabs that hang on each side of the track and the door open and closed by approximating or moving the pieces away from each other.
Bypass System:Differently from the other two systems, in the bypass system, there are two or three barn doors that are in front and behind each other on their respective tracks. The doors on this system open and close by sliding in front of each other on their tracks.
Note: In most cases, you will need to select a track size that is at least double the door size.
