sliding doors

Post by Candyshell1973 »

We have sliding doors that close off the parlor from the foyer. They have the crackle finish and actually I rather like them.

Now knowing what I'm looking for... If anyone has for free :D or for sale a pair or two of the U-shaped barn door rollers please let me know.
I know I can buy brand new ones for $200+ but I would love to find older ones and save a bit of history.

Someday my door will be complete!!

Hmm,
I'm still using mine; look around for an old barn that's falling down & ask the owner for them. That's how we got used barn siding for our den when I was a kid. Don

I like sliding room dividers because it can be easily use in low space room. It have no problem to open and close. There are lots of benefits of sliding doors and first of all these kind of room dividers looks too stylish.

I am using sliding dividers. I found it very useful. It is heavy, but since it’s hanging with roller, even one man can operate after installation. Since the panel is very thick such as 100mm, each piece is a sound insulation system combining two 9mm finish boards, sound insulation wool and other optional soundproof material such as mass loaded vinyl and coated steel plate. The sliding dividers have excellent soundproof performance, blocking up to STC 50.
