​ Product Spotlight: Modern French 8 Lite Barn Door + Gage Hardware Kit

Congratulations, you’re a homeowner. But ownership is just the start of our relationship with our home. Sooner or later, everyone thinks about home improvement. Whether it’s remodeling, redecorating, or adding, we all invest in our home beyond the initial purchase.

From basement to bedroom, one of the best options is an interior barn door. Inspired by the master designers of the European Renaissance, French barn doors are now popular all over the world. Our BarnCraft™ Modern French 8 Lite Barn Door will bring a touch of class, style, and elegance into any space of your home.

Barn Door Product Spotlight: the Modern French 8 Lite Barn Door

This classic, yet modern product features 8 large, heavy glass panes. 1" narrow, black aluminum stiles and rails surround the tempered 3/8" thick safety glass. That glass is available in a clear, or a cloud option for extra privacy. Four sizes – 36" or 42" wide by 84" or 96" high – can be used alone or in pairs.

The included anodized aluminum front handle features a stylish, integrated design. It measures 1" by 17-3/4" by 1-1/4". It can be placed on the left or right of the door. Or, if you prefer, it can be omitted altogether.

Rounding out our Modern French 8 Lite Barn Door are two further options. The attractive, white painted header board will add an even more appealing, decorative finish to your project.

The soft-close option includes two units. They act like a spring to cushion excessive force. This ensures a controlled, “smart” open or close action when slamming the door open or shut. You’ll appreciate this option if you have children.

Hardware Product Spotlight: the Gage Hardware Kit

This hand-made hardware kit is the perfect companion product to our Modern French 8 Lite Barn Door. It is available at no additional cost for a 78-3/4" rail. For a wider 100" rail, the additional cost is only a modest $20.

The sturdy Gage Hardware Kit includes everything you’ll need so you can slide our Modern French 8 Lite Barn Door. Simply hang the door on the pre-drilled rail using the two provided rollers. Thanks to high durometer nylon wheels, the door glides smoothly, quietly, and effortlessly along.

This high quality hardware kit is made from powder coated steel in a black finish. It comes with stoppers, screws, nuts, anti-jump disc, and C floor glider. Once installed, it supports a door weighing up to 220 pounds.


Our Gage Hardware Kit also includes an easy to follow installation guide. Using this guide, you should have your door installed and working in no time. You’ll only need basic tools like a screwdriver, a hammer, and a drill.

You can also find instructional videos online like how to hang a sliding barn door and barn door installation and hardware questions answered. But we don’t think you’ll need them. Expert or novice, you should be able to perform the installation with no problems.

Practical, affordable, and pleasing, our Modern French 8 Lite Barn Door and Gage Hardware Kit are just one way to add value to your home. They’ll bring an Old World, sunlit charm.
