Understanding Barn Door Tracks
A barn door track is a proven sliding mechanism for doors, particularly ideal for heavier door designs. This space-saving concept originated in the United States, where it was used on actual farm barn doors. Its remarkable efficiency prompted people to adopt the design for their homes, hence the name "barn door."
Advantages of Barn Doors
Opting for a barn door over a regular hinged door or internal cavity offers numerous advantages. Here are some compelling reasons to choose a barn door design:
Design Aspects: The barn door becomes a focal point in your room, especially when coupled with second-hand rustic doors that can be repurposed into functional art using a barn door track.
DIY-Friendly: Unlike regular sliding doors, barn doors do not require an internal cavity. This makes them suitable for installation by most DIY enthusiasts without the need for specialized tradespeople like carpenters and plaster boarders.
Design Flexibility: Existing doors can be modified to suit barn door installations. It doesn't matter how tall your door is; if it's too large, you can always trim it down. In cases where you have a larger opening, adding a second door is possible to accommodate it.
Greater Visibility: With the hardware visible on the outside, any issues with your doors can be easily identified before they become problematic. Imagine the inconvenience of a door falling off its track within an internal cavity.
