Spelled Like Beyerle-Sounds Like By-Er-Lee

Many people call it Barn Door Hardware, some people call it Pocket Door Hardware, it's actually called Sliding Door Track. To be a little more technical, you could call it Exposed Sliding Door Track. The track is the type that is mounted on the wall so that the door slides over the opening to close it. Very much like what you see on a barn door. Most people like these because they have a modern, industrial look. These would fit nicely in an urban chic loft or even a rustic place with modern accents.

This is a line by Beyerle that we started carrying earlier this year and it's really exciting stuff. Mostly because over the years, I've gotten a lot of requests for it and we've not had a source to get it. When you look at the track on our website, it seems a bit intimidating but it's really pretty simple. I know, there are a lot of dimensions and a lot of information to process but it just needs to be broken down. We show the most common sizes and scenarios on our website in packaged sets.

The first thing you will need to determine is what type of door that will be used, will it be glass or wood.

The next thing you will need to do is pick out the style of trolley (bracket). Your options are:
Objekt door bracket

Unotec door bracket

Flatec I
Flatec I door bracket

Flatec II
Flatec II door bracket

Tritec door bracket

Duetec door bracket

Next you will need to know what your opening width is. The opening width is basically how wide the doorway that you walk through will be. For example; if you have a 36in. wide opening you will want the 82 11/16in. rail length.

There are a few other things that may or may not come into play, but as long as you have the answer to the three points above you've practically got it ordered.

We've got a small display in our showroom and I've been able to try it a few times and check it out. These things are really cool! They're very durable and they roll really smoothly on the track (you can't hear a thing when the door moves.) Go have a look, and if you've got any questions you can always give us a call. 1-800-708-6649.
