An Overview On Sliding Barn Door Hardware

Barn doors are very on-trend these days, partly because of their versatility. They can be used for doorways, as well as for cabinet doors. To install them, you need sliding barn door hardware, which is usually sold separately. Keep in mind that even though pictures of the hardware often shows barn doors, you will probably need to make two purchases in order to get both parts.

The track, or rail, is a long bar installed above your doorway or on a cabinet. It lets the rollers slide from side to side and supports the door’s weight. Barn door hardware kits have pre-drilled tracks, which makes things easier. The rollers mount on the door, and the hanger portion lets the door roll on the track.

When shopping for barn door hardware, look at the different finishes and styles available to see what looks compatible with the door you have. You will also need to measure the door and the opening before purchasing the kit. Installation is fairly straightforward, though you will need some basic tools, like a level, tape measure, drill, reciprocating saw and a socket set. Follow the instructions with the kit to be sure you are using the proper tools.

The Sliding Barn Door Hardware Buying Guide

  • Experts recommend looking for kits with nylon wheels, which promote smoother and quieter door openings and closings.
  • See if the kit is designed for single and/or double doors, and buy what you need.
  • Powder coating on the components can make the hardware more durable.
  • If you are installing a single barn door, it will be mounted on one track that is twice as long as the door’s width. This means that you need enough space on one side of the doorway to install the track.
  • For double doors, these are both mounted on one track that must be two times as long as the width of both doors combined.
