Here are some examples of what you can find when you shop with us. Nylon Hardware and Stained Door Combo Stained doors work well in either exterior or interior applications as well as the nylon hardware. You can use stained doors with a variety of colors and finishes and it still looks good. The nylon hardware is durable enough to last in any application as well as quiet enough to use in a nursery or library. It can also work with many colors or finishes and still look classy enough for classic looks or rustic enough to fit in a rustic setting. If you put nylon hardware with other types of doors you can create a very different look altogether for the design that you are looking for.
The wood with the gold contrasts very nicely and would go well in more classic applications. When installed correctly the hardware is protected by a limited lifetime warranty. Industrial Sliding Door Hardware Standard or stainless steel hardware is available for this type of sliding barn doors. They are sturdier making them perfect for heavier doors such as glass wood or metal and can hold doors that weigh up to 500 pounds. Industrial doors from around the turn of the 20th century have use this flat track style of hardware and are now being used in a more domestic application.
The classic 5" barn door hinges offer basic effective use for interior doors. These are a no frills no thrills kind if hinge for general use. A step up from the basic 5" hinge is the colonial 6" hinge. These are more ornamental in nature and feature a more decorative look. They are also more heavy duty and feature a more robust hinge pin. For half doors a large drop latch can be very effective. These allow you to keep your door closed thus preventing animals from escaping yet they can be easily opened by anyone.
Its sometimes referred to as "flat track hardware" because the track itself is made of solid steel flat bar. This gave the track strength and rigidity. Now instead of a vertical hinge system large doors had a horizontal track system that supported them. The horizontal design allowed for the weight of the door to be spread out more evenly across the entire system giving it more strength. It also allowed for the large doors to slide back and forth into position instead of having to swing out. More strength more space more overall ease of operation- that was why this style of hardware was developed and used. And that is where the name "barn door hardware" comes from.
