In the universe of barn door hardware, not only is everything a visual piece, everything is also a crucial part of the entire barn door installation. No piece of hardware, though, is more important than the track. The barn door rolls around on it. Therefore, it sets the tone for all of the other hardware you’ll need to complete your barn door and keep it rolling, figuratively and otherwise.
Flat track barn door hardware is the most common kind of track found in barn door installations. It hangs above the barn door, which, itself, is suspended from it, via straps and wheels. In function, it’s best to think of it much like the door to a small closet.
Despite the fact that they make up the “standard” barn door set-up, there is still immense variety to be had with the standard flat track. We offer the T-Series, which are stylish black flat tracks. Hammered flat tracks are available to have your barn door look like it’s a blast from the past. There are also horseshoe flat tracks that operate on their spokes.
You can have sliding barn doors roll around on the floor should you so desire it. It may be a more feasible option if you want a barn door installed in an area with high ceilings.
It’s really useful if you’re not buying a solid wood barn door. Glass barn doors work best when they’re not left dangling from the top. However, bottom tracks are compatible with barn doors of any make, be they glass, wood, resin, composite or any other construct. Also great for barn doors that have patterned designs using multiple makes.
Tubular Track is an innovative new form of stainless steel barn door track. The tracks place the most importance on the bearings, allowing them to hold up the heaviest of barn doors. Being entirely constructed of stainless steel doesn’t hurt their sleekness or sturdiness either. For example, Baldur tubular tracks can hold doors that weigh up to 400 pounds.
On the other end of the spectrum, you have the Rob Roy tracks, which are geared towards the Rob Roy system. It strikes more of a balance between form and function. You have lots of options in this department.
