BarnCraft MDF Barn Doors
The BarnCraft MDF Barn Door Collection features 1-1/8" and 1-1/2" thick doors produced using MDF (Medium density fiberboard). These doors are certified to CARB standards. They are all available with a white primed finish, to which you should apply your own paint color. Or you may select one of 19 colors of textured 3D laminates.
Most of these doors are available with the door design router carved on the front side only or on both sides of the door. For the X blackboard door the design is only offered on the front side of the door. For the doors with a one side design, the back of the door is flat and smooth.
We do not prep the door for the hardware. Each barn door installation is different and we allow the customer to choose where they would like the hardware to be placed onto the door. We do however prep the door for our inset vista handle. If you order the vista handle for either the front or back of the door, we will rout the hole into the door for you.
If you are purchasing hardware with the doors in this series, all doors must be pre-drilled for all hardware holes in MDF doors. The size of the hole varies with what is being mounted onto the MDF door. A clavo will be different from a Vista door pull which will be different from a wrought iron door pull. And all of these will be different from a Gage hardware which is different from a Slade hardware.
We don’t suggest GAGE hardware for MDF doors. The doors are heavy...and the other hardware models such as the SLADE bolt THROUGH the door will provide more strength and support than the GAGE model. If you DO use the GAGE hardware, be sure to drill the pilot hole the correct depth into the top of the door. The depth of the hole should be approximately ¼” shorter than the length of the screw.
Always drill a pilot hole before you mount your door hardware to prevent mushrooming or chipping out of the MDF surface. Drilling will create a fine dust, so always wear a respirator and eye protection. If the mounting bolt is going all the way through the MDF door, then the diameter of the hole must be slightly LARGER than the diameter of the bolt being used.If you are mounting decorative door hardware such as clavos or a metal door strap, then the diameter of the pilot hole should be slightly less than the diameter of the screw being used.
All doors in this series are available assembled only.
