Door Hardware Help
Barn doors are a stylish and modern alternative to traditional interior doors that swing open and close on hinges installed into the door frame. These are typically large wooden doors suspended by strong metal hangers that use small wheels to roll along a track installed above the door frame. A door pull is attached to the hanging door, allowing it to be pulled open and closed by sliding along the door track. Barn door hardware is meant to be sleek and industrial in style, to match the design aesthetic that traditionally incorporates an interior barn-style door.
When ordering hardware for barn doors for your home or commercial space from Direct Door Hardware, you'll have the option to order full door hardware kits that include everything you need to install or replace an interior barn-style door. While choosing barn door hardware for your home, you need to consider three primary components: the tracks, the hangers, and the pulls. Your other alternative is to order each hardware piece individually, which is great if you are searching for replacement parts.
As mentioned above, you need to make sure that you order all three barn door hardware components and ensure that they are the correct size and are similar enough to make a cohesive hardware set. If you need any assistance in measuring your door or ordering your hardware, don't hesitate to reach out for help!
While bottom tracks, or floor guides, aren't absolutely necessary, they are highly recommended. Floor guides help keep the barn door from coming off of the top track or swinging out. Most barn door kits come with bottom tracks.
No. Simply put, not any door can be used as a barn door because there are certain dimensions it must have to function properly. Not only must it look the part, but a door must also be wide and tall enough to cover the door opening, have a solid frame (hollow won't work with the sliding hardware), and be free of hinge holes and a door knob hole. Sure, there may be some doors that tick all of these boxes, in which case could be used as a barn door. However, it's best to only purchase doors designed to be barn doors.
Measuring for a barn door is quite easy. Grab a tape measure and measure from one edge of your door opening to the other. Since you want your barn door to cover 2 or 3 inches overtop the sides of the opening, add at least 4 to 6 inches to your initial measurement.
For the track, double your width measurement. For length, measure from the header to the floor. the door will need to hang at least ½ an inch above the floor for that smooth gliding operation. Remember that the barn door track will sit a few inches above the opening.
