5 Benefits of Outdoor Barn Door Hardware
While you can seal doors for winter
and take other precautions to protect your home's interior from changing weather throughout the year, your home's exterior always faces the elements. For outside barn doors, like a patio door or shed door, consider using outdoor barn door hardware to reap the following benefits:
1. Resists Weather
Like an exterior door rated for outside use, an exterior sliding barn door hardware kit is designed to resist weather, including rain, ice, and intense sunshine. An exterior barn door kit comes with a powder coated finish that seals to the metal to prevent it from fading, chipping, or rusting—no matter what the weather decides to do.
This long-lasting finish creates barn door hardware will last for years to come. Each piece of hardware gets the same treatment, including its barn door track, roller, hanger, door pull, and locking mechanism, to ensure durability and reliability.
2. Will Not Bend or Bow
Because of the powder coated finish on barn door hardware kit pieces, you can expect your exterior door's hardware to maintain its shape. Unlike cheaper kits that tend to bend or bow when exposed to intense heat or cold, outdoor rated hardware is guaranteed to hold its original shape, keeping your door secure and functional.
3. Fully Customizable
Our barn door hardware kits for each interior door in your home offer several customization options, including track type, metal finish, hanger style, and track length. However, opting for an outdoor rated hardware kit doesn't necessarily limit your options. You can get the precise size and look you need for your exterior doors by selecting its metal finish, metal type, hangers, and door system.
Rustica crafts each kit to your specifications so you get a completely unique exterior barn door hardware kit custom made for your outdoor area. Each order is double and triple-checked for accuracy, and assembled using our 10-step customization process.
4. Designed to Last
Hardware kits rated for outdoor use are designed to last for many years to come. Rustica's exterior barn door hardware kit is created with the finest craftsmanship that considers every detail. Your exterior doors are more than just for looks; you need them to function reliably too. We take pride in designing them to look as good as the day you bought them, no matter the climate or season.
5. Includes Everything You Need for Installation
The best part of buying an exterior barn door hardware kit from Rustica is that it includes everything you need to install the door yourself. With Rustica’s outdoor barn door hardware kit, you'll get a floor guide, mounting hardware, door track or door hinges, hangers, and a door stop. We'll even pre-drill the holes for easy DIY installation.
Each kit also includes step-by-step instructions that outline the installation process, whether you have a bi parting door, double door, or hinged door.
9 Ways to Customize Rustica’s Exterior Barn Door Hardware
Getting the exact look and function you need in an exterior barn door is no problem with Rustica's outdoor barn door hardware kits. These fully customizable kits are made to order according to your specifications for each of the following elements:
1. System Type
First, choose the type of sliding door system you need. Our kits can accommodate:
- Standard doors: This system is for single doors on a single sliding track.
- Bi parting doors: These kits include one track with two doors that slide away from one another to reveal the door opening.
- Bypass doors: Bypass systems include two doors and two tracks. The doors can pass over one another because of the separate tracks.
- Triple bypass doors: Triple bypass systems have three tracks and at least three doors, all of which can move over one another.
We also have hinged door kits if you prefer a traditional swinging door over a sliding door.
2. Metal Type
Our outdoor rated barn door hardware kits come in steel or stainless steel. Steel is a budget-friendly option that provides long-lasting durability. But if you have more wiggle room in your budget, opt for stainless steel, which offers more protection against rust and corrosion.
3. Metal Finish
The outdoor rated barn door hardware kits from Rustica are available in our classic flat black finish. The sleek, matte finish works with several exterior styles, from midcentury modern to rustic to industrial looks.
We offer also offer several metal finishes for our bypass, bi parting, and standard door kits, including unfinished raw steel, industrial bronze, distressed white, and aged oil rubbed bronze. Or, choose a more eye-catching finish for added curb appeal, like glacier, huntsman, or faded red.
4. Door Lock MechanismLocking a sliding barn door
is crucial when it comes to exterior barn doors. We offer a few different locking mechanisms for barn doors, including the modest hook and eye latch and the heavy-duty tear drop latch system.
Door locking mechanisms are sold separately, so don’t forget to add them to your order when designing your heavy duty sliding barn door and exterior barn door hardware kit.
5. Track Length
To get the perfect fit for your exterior door and door opening, you can customize the track length. Learning how to measure for a barn door
will be the first step of the process, and will make it much easier when it comes to ordering.
Rustica's tracks come in different lengths for narrow and wide openings, from four to 32 feet. You can choose the size you need down to the closest inch. We recommend choosing a length that's two times the width of your door. Tracks more than eight feet long will ship spliced into equal pieces, but will fit together perfectly when installed for a harmonious, finished look.
6. Hanger Style and Number
Outdoor rated barn door hardware kits include hangers, which are the pieces that attach to the doors, as well as rollers to ensure the doors roll smoothly along their tracks. Typically, the hangers match the track hardware finish included with the kit, but you can choose a different finish if you’d like, including flat black or brushed steel.
Additionally, you can choose which type of hanger you want. This is where you can really play around with styles. For instance, the Garrick hanger
features a traditional rustic look with a modest wheel and looped hanger, but our Military hanger
is very industrious, with three roller wheels reminiscent of gears and sharp, factory-inspired lines.
When placing your order, include the number of hangers you need, too. You may need more than the usual two for oversized or heavy doors.
7. Track Style
Hang exterior barn doors on a track or with hinges, depending on the space you're using them. For example, hinges are usually best for a front entrance door, but sliding doors work well for patios and garage doors.
When placing your order, choose the type of hardware attachment you need. Rustica offers a few options for hinges and tracks to get the proper functionality for your door. For instance, choose a ceiling mount barn door track, rather than a flat track hardware kit, if your shed or garage is short on wall space. Tube tracks and box tracks are also available for those who want a more modern or industrial style.
8. Track Holes
If you'd rather drill the holes for your hardware kit yourself, you can certainly so for your DIY project. However, Rustica's exterior barn door hardware kits come with the option for pre-drilled holes measured for your specific kit and door. You can also choose to have just the end holes drilled.
9. Door Stop and Guide Style
Door stops and guides ensure that your sliding barn doors move where and how you need them to without banging into walls, other doors, or even sliding off the track entirely. These hardware pieces are especially helpful for oversized and heavy-duty doors, like solid wood doors or garage doors.
Choose between a standard or adjustable door stop. The latter option can go anywhere on a track to stop the door where you'd prefer. Rustica offers several types of wall-mounted and floor-mounted door guides to fit your specific needs.
