Closet Barn Doors – A large barn door of the building requires the use of heavier materials including 4 by 4 boards and larger boards of 6 x 1. It is a Texas-size door that has to be held together under quite difficult conditions that include opening and closing several times a day, strong winds, explosions and blows from animals and agricultural machinery, plus much more. Measure the opening of the door that will be covered with the shutter. This initial measurement will help you determine the dimensions of the two panels of the mounted track.
Mark the measurements on the T-111 plywood and start making cuts with a table saw. Once the panels are cut to the final dimensions, take the measurements of the individual pieces to determine the dimensions of the molding. Cut the birch plywood and trim it to size with a table saw or saw cut. Secure the decorative pieces to the T-111 panel with wood screws. Apply the trim on both the edges and on each door to create the “barn door” Look. Sand, stain and let the closet barn doors panel dry before riding to the track. When hanging barn doors in prefabricated concrete, a hammer driller is an ideal tool for drilling into the pillars. Once the holes are drilled, insert expansion bolts and tighten down.
The application of epoxy in the holes before inserting the expansion screws will add additional force to keep the bolts in the concrete. Next, mount an anchor bolt on the uprights. Once the track system is mounted and secure, you only need to feed the door rollers on the metal track. The closet barn doors blinds are suspended from rollers in a mounting rail system. To help make the most of the entertainment center, the blinds simply roll shut to provide an almost total blackout of outside light in the basement room, making for a true home theater experience.
