The type of barn door hardware you will need is dependent on several factors including including the width of your doorway, the amount of clearance you have around your doorway and the number of barn doors you would like to use. In this article we will walk you through the steps we use to determine the best type of barn door hardware kit for your doorway.
The first step to determine the type of hardware you will need is to take accurate measurements of your doorway and the surrounding wall space. This will tell you if you can use a simple single-track kit or if you require a bypass kit.
Why Do I Need To Take Measurements?
Barn door hardware kits allow you to open and close your barn door by sliding the door along a track. You will need to determine if you have enough space on either side of the doorway to push the door to the side when opening it. Without accurate measurements, you won't be able to determine the correct hardware kit for your installation.
