Q: What’s the difference between Barn Door Hardware, Flat Track, Sliding Door Hardware, etc?

A: Nothing! We coined the term “Barn Door Hardware” for our website back in 1996 when we introduced bringing exterior sliding hardware into homes and offices to save space or simply because it looked cool! It differentiated the exposed style vs pocket doors. All the kits and categories you see on our website do the same function, slide. Whether it’s listed under Flat Track, Sliding Door Hardware, Modern Hardware, Tubular Track…they’re all just a variety of styles with the same function, they all slide.

Q: What track length should I order for my door?

A: Generally your track length should be double the width of your sliding door(s) unless you prefer otherwise. Every set-up is different and may require a specific length. If you’re unsure about sizing and would like assistance, call us (866)815-8151

Q: How much should I oversize my door?

A: The doors overlapping (width and height) of your opening is to create privacy and aesthetics as well. If you’re unsure about sizing and would like assistance, call us (866)815-8151

Q: What is a Surface Headerboard?

A: It is a headerboard that you mount to the surface of your wall. Your track is then mounted to this headerboard. Sometimes it’s done for aesthetics, other times it’s done to accommodate the sliding of thicker doors/baseboards.

Q: What are Wall Spacers?

A: Wall spacers make up the distance between the track and the wall. This distance allows your door to slide. For this reason we ask that you provide your door thickness, baseboard thickness and track mounting style (wall mount or surface headerboard mount) when ordering. These factors determine your wall spacer length. Our wall spacers are made to order, adjustable or include additional spacers on most of our kits.

Q: Where are the doors and hardware made?

A: A variety of established hardware manufacturers throughout the United States and Germany.

Q: What is the difference between interior only hardware vs interior/exterior hardware?

A: Interior only hardware kits are made with few nylon parts to quiet the slide or make for easier adjustments in the kits. The nylon components and colored finishes have not been tested for prolonged exterior weather exposure and can degrade. Our Interior/Exterior line of hardware is built for both. They are all steel kits and most hanger wheels have caged or sealed bearings as well as powder coated finishes. All kits can be used interior, however not all can be used exterior.

Q: What’s normal delivery time?

A: Delivery time varies per hardware line. Our normal delivery time averages between 2-4 weeks. Rush shipments are available, call us to speak to a representative regarding rush options and costs.
