Sliding barn doors can make a bit of noise as the metal rollers glide along the metal track, which adds to the rustic charm. However, for places where silence is golden (like a baby’s bedroom or a library,) we offer silent rollers.
Instead of metal, these rollers are made with Dupont™ Delrin® acetal resin, a high-tech polymer developed for its stiffness, strength, and suitability for precision manufacturing. Delrin-based rollers are resistant to warping or getting flat spots, unlike rollers made with nylon.
Silent rollers are available in black, only, and can be substituted into any of our Standard Series or Stainless Steel Series barn door hardware sets or bypass sets. (Silent rollers are standard equipment on our MP Series, Hidden Roller Series, Barnfold® Series, and Shutter Series products.) Silent rollers must be installed at our factory, so please ask your local retail dealer to place a special order for you.
IMPORTANT: We recommend using silent rollers only with doors weighing 200 pounds or less.
