A prevalent question when buying a sliding barn door is: how tall and wide should my barn door be? What most people do not know is that measuring your door frame for a barn door is different from measuring for a regular swing door.

The UV Protection Finish specifically works well with exterior vertical surfaces such as doors, window frames, etc.
For ingredient-rich wood species (such as Cedar, Iroko, Teak, Mahogany, etc.) - please allow minimum of 12 weeks exposure in situ to the outside elements prior to application.
UV-Protection Oils are recommended only for vertically structured timber (drip angle min. 10º) to enable the rain to drip off rather than staying on the wood's surface for prolonged lengths of time.
Over application and/or low ventilation can increase the drying times.
The high-energy UV rays of the sun destroy the lignin in wood: it greys. Up to now, only wood finishes with color pigments could possibly prevent this effect. With Osmo UV-Protection Oil, you have the possibility to protect your wood almost invisibly. UV-Protection Oil contains special ingredients that stall the greying effect by 12 times (UV factor 12). For reliable UV protection, the wood finish must be applied more generously than other wood stains from Osmo.
The recommended application amount is approx. 55 ml/m².
So that no micro-organisms, like mold, algae, or moss, can stick to a wood finish and cause unsightly discolorations, biocidal active ingredients for superficial film protection can be added. Biocidal ingredients are fine-tuned exactly so that a harmful effect for people can be largely eliminated.
Oak contains high acid content within its natural tannins and as a result, causes the timber to blacken during exposure to cold and moist environments - especially during the winter periods. More frequent care and maintenance are required, particularly in its first couple of years of exposure to the elements, to maintain its decorative appearance.
Many wood species contain water-soluble colored extractives which may leach out naturally when weathered.
Ensure that wood surfaces to be treated with Osmo UV Protection Oil are clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%).
Please Note: Allowing the wood to weather, especially dense exotic hardwoods, enables the tight, dense grain of the timber to open up. This makes it easier to apply the oil and allows it to penetrate deeper in to the wood grain.
Clean old micro-porous finishes (wood oils) thoroughly
Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the tin at all times.
Oiled surfaces can be regularly cleaned with a suitable exterior spray cleaner that won’t strip away the waxes and oils.
When renovation is required, ensure that surfaces are clean and dry.
