Turn any standard-sized door into a barn door
Barn doors aren’t just for the barn. In fact, they have become a great functional and unique element of home design. The challenge many faced was that hardware was complex and only worked with special sized doors. Understanding the need in the home design market, JELD-WEN developed DesignGlide™ barn door hardware. DesignGlide is a unique, soft-close barn door hardware that works with any standard 80” door.
What makes DesignGlide so unique?
- Use with any standard 80” door (the typical size for interior doors)
- Remove your old door – no other work required
- Accent rails for top and bottom add extra style
- No slamming shut ever
This patent-pending system is revolutionizing the barn door market by providing a world of possibilities for design options. With the freedom to choose any door, a barn door can fit any aesthetic. Use a sleek, simple door for a contemporary look. A paneled door in a dark color or stain adds character to a Modern Craftsman home. Or go rustic with reclaimed wood for a traditional farmhouse vibe. With two hardware finishes, you can create a variety of styles.
DesignGlide is DIY friendly
Since no new framing or special doors are needed, DesignGlide can be installed rather easily. The kit comes with all the necessary hardware to create a barn door system.
It’s a four step process:
- Install hardware.
- Place top and bottom accent rails.
- Attach track and backerboard.
- Hang your door.
Barn doors are versatile
Where will you use your barn door? Barn doors add depth and interest to any room. How you decide to use yours is up to you. DesignGlide lets you be the designer. Use it as bathroom door where a typical outswing door wont’ fit. Replace traditional bi-fold doors on a laundry room or closet. Divide an office area from a great room. Or use them as a way to cover shelving, entertainment centers or storage.
