Visit our interactive map to find a retail dealer near you. Our map does not include some of the dealers that buy our products through wholesale distributors. So, if you do not see a dealer near you on the map, call your local building supply store or lumberyard and ask if they stock our products, or contact the nearest wholesale distributor for further assistance.
Our barn door hardware products are sold by retail dealers in the USA and Canada. Our products can also be shipped to most of the Caribbean Islands from a few dealers in the coastal southeast USA. Shipping policies are determined by individual dealers.
If you are experienced with construction, remodeling, or major home repairs, you should be able to install our products yourself. You need to make sure that the wall above your doorway is prepared to handle the weight of the hardware and door. Installation requires accurate measurements for proper fit and function. The work involves using power tools and standing on a ladder. You will probably need an assistant if you have a heavy door.
If you have any doubts about your skills or if you do not know how to follow our installation instructions, we recommend that you get a professional installer to do the work for you. Keep in mind that our warranty does not cover any damage or personal injuries resulting from improper installation.
Some homeowners do use our barn door hardware for outdoor installations. Keep in mind, though, that our powder-coated steel barn door hardware and shutter hardware will eventually rust if used where it will be exposed to rain, running water, or high humidity. Outdoor installation voids the warranty and may shorten the product's service life. We recommend our Stainless Steel series hardware for outdoor use.
MP stands for Multi-family Projects. MP Series is our product line originally designed for apartment buildings, hotels or office buildings where an architect or contractor wants to install dozens of identical sliding barn doors at a lower cost that our Standard Series products. However, you can buy MP Series products for just one or two doors, as well.
Besides the visual design, MP Series products differ from our Standard Series in three main ways:
1- MP Series roller hangers are factory-equipped with DuPont™ Delrin® silent rollers.
2- The tracks are made with 1½″ × 3⁄16″ steel for use with lighter-weight doors.
3- MP Series kits, tracks and most accessories are available in three colors: black, silver metallic, and architectural bronze.
