Today I want to talk to you, specifically, about barn style garage doors type, a design that is not new, but that is standing strong among the latest trends in interior decoration. They are sliding doors of American inspiration that formerly were put in the granaries and in the farms because even being large, they were practical to open and close continuously. Did not you know them? Well do not worry, all you have to know about barn doors you will find in this post. Oh! And go preparing a budget, because after reading it, you’ll want one in your house, for sure.
The original barn style garage doors, the American model itself, is the untreated rustic wooden doors, which have wooden crosspieces, horizontally or in the form of a cross, and often, two metal horseshoes that cross them horizontally. The system of guides and fittings to make the door slide is a whole world. The most common is that they have a rail “to the air” that is to say, that the system of pulleys on which the door slides is completely visible.
But there are many more types, from boxed rail, in which the fittings are not visible, to semi-visible pulley fittings or horseshoe- shaped. A range of possibilities that dominate American companies, due to its tradition in the manufacture of these doors. Here are some pictures for you to visualize this important part of barn style garage doors.
