The Classic Top Mount Barn Door Hardware has been a constant best seller and is a design used frequently in the industry. Artisan Hardware's design and manufacturing team have spent countless hours to ensure the top mount design is sleek, precise and functions flawlessly. The sliding barn door hardware requires just over 5" of clearance above the door, making it the lowest profile of Artisan Hardware's designs and the most popular style among those looking for a clean and modern product. The wheel is 3" wide and comes in either steel or nylon. It encases an oil-infused bushing that results in a smooth and quiet roll. While the weight capacity is lower than those of straps, it makes up for the deficiency in a clean and simple style that both blends and enhances any sliding barn door. Designed, manufactured, and approved by Artisans.

The Classic Top Mount Barn Door Hardware attaches to the top of the door. To ensure the most strength possible, each hanger has a baseplate with two holes.

5 Benefits of Top Mount Barn Door Hardware

One of the hardest things to choose when remodeling or building a home is your sliding door. There are plenty of design guidelines out there to help you choose the best type of sliding door for your space, but the second hardest decision is choosing the barn door hardware itself! So how do you decipher which kit is best for your type of door or your space?

5 Benefits of Top Mount Barn Door Hardware

  1. Classic Design
  2. Low Profile
  3. Quiet Roll
  4. Weight Limit Flexibility
  5. Custom Length
First, decide whether you need top mount sliding barn door hardware or side mount hardware for your sliding barn door system.

What is the Difference Between Side Mount and Top Mount?

There are two ways to mount barn doors: side mount and top mount. With a side mount, the hardware is installed on the outside of the door itself (facing outwards towards the room). This design is great if you are looking for a more pronounced, industrial-style on your sliding door hardware. These look exceptionally great on metal doors, however, bear in mind that a lot of these styles do need more clearance between the door and ceiling to allow room for the decorative rollers. This style is more durable and can hold more weight, so keep that in mind too if you are hanging a solid slab of wood or something heftier.

With the top mount, the only hardware visible is the wheel; giving it a very minimalistic look and allowing your door to be the showstopper of the room. This is a great option if you have low ceilings (as it doesn’t need as much clearance), if you want the door itself to be the focal point, or if you are hanging a door panel made out of a material that isn’t able to utilize a side mount, such as glass. Installing top mount barn door hardware is a great option that will enable you to hang your sliding glass door wherever you would like it to go.

5 Benefits of Top Mount Barn Door Hardware

Now that we’ve covered the difference between a top mount system and side mount system, let’s talk about the benefits of buying a top mount barn door hardware kit:

1. Classic Design

The classic top mount barn door hardware has consistently been a bestseller. It is a design used frequently in the industry. There’s something to be said for keeping the barn door kit minimalistic and clean—it allows you to fully appreciate the style of door you choose to mount it on. And your door options are limitless: from sliding closet doors, double doors, bypass, and bifold doors; you can utilize this timeless style again and again in any area of your household and with any material of door—be it glass, aluminum, steel, or wood doors.

This is an excellent style to use for saving money as well, since you aren’t paying for decorative rollers made of hefty metals or other materials. You are getting a solid, secure, and minimalistic piece that will allow you to install this look throughout your entire household without the risk of becoming overbearing or repetitive.

2. Low Profile

This sliding barn door hardware requires just more than five inches of clearance above the door, making it the lowest profile of Artisan Hardware's designs and the most popular style among those looking for a clean and modern product. These work especially well in older homes where the ceilings might not be as tall. Low clearance? Not a problem for these hardware kits.

3. Quiet Roll

The wheel is three inches wide and comes in your choice of either steel or nylon. It encases an oil-infused bushing that results in a smooth and quiet roll. With the powder coating on the railings, the bottom guide to stabilize the door and prevent any wobbling or shifting, and the stoppers, you will have a smooth, even glide with your rollers each time you open or close your interior door.

No more squeaky door hinges and loss of floor space taken up by traditional hinged doors on door frames. Just smooth, easy breezy, beautiful sliding movement. We won’t lie—it can be a little soothing to feel the rollers glide along the track; you might just find yourself or your kids doing it for fun!

4. Weight Limit Flexibility

The classic top mount barn door hardware attaches to the top of the door. To ensure the highest strength possible, each hanger has a baseplate with two holes. The exact screw used depends on the door weight and material; however, the four connection points per hanger ensure that weight will not be an issue.

While the weight capacity on the top-mounted hardware is lower than strap hardware, it makes up for this deficiency in a clean and simple style that both blends and enhances any sliding barn door.

The additional stabilization with the spacers and lag bolts (one per every foot of track) ensures a heavy-duty track ready to roll; with the ability to hold a significant amount of weight. Be sure to reach out to customer support with your door dimensions and specifications if you have any particular concerns about your ability to utilize this hardware kit with your barn door slab.

5. Custom Length

When you’re determining how much track you’ll need, you want to measure the area where you installing the door. Take that measurement, double it, and add about two to three inches on the width.

The reason this is such a big measurement is because you want to ensure that the door is wider than the opening, so it needs to overhang on each side when fully closed. You also want to have enough track that it can roll back into place and “hide” against the wall without protruding into the walkway or door frame.

Artisan Hardware’s tracks come in custom, cut-to-order lengths with all the necessary hardware (nuts, bolts, screws, etc.) you will need to install your custom barn door top mount hardware for sliding doors.

How to Install Top Mount Barn Door Hardware

Whether you decide to hire help for the installation or do it yourself, you will have all the tools and information necessary to make sure your sliding hardware is installed safely and securely. Be sure to read through the installation packet provided and follow the steps outlined in the pamphlet.

Each barn door hardware kit ordered includes the following:
  • Powder-coated hardware
  • 2 top mount hangers and wheels
  • Track at ordered length
  • Spacers and lag bolts, 1 per every foot of track
  • 2 stops for the end of the track
  • Bottom guide to prevent the door from shifting
  • All needed hardware, nuts, and bolts
If you decide to install the top mount barn door hardware on your own, you will need to follow a few simple steps:

1. Measure How Much Track You Will Need


Before you begin, measure where you would like to install your sliding door or sliding doors to determine the length of track to order. You will need double the width of your door plus two to three inches for your track if you are doing a single door. For double doors, you will need to make sure you have enough room for each individual door on each side of the doorway with nothing impeding the door from gliding. Check for light switches, wainscotting, or any other obstacles, you don’t want the door hiding or hitting anything when it glides on the track.

2. Determine How High to Hang the Track

Height is a variable that you can play around with a bit when it comes to sliding doors, but typically you want a half-inch available at the bottom of the door, with the mount at least 2.75 inches above the door frame itself. You can mount higher and closer to the ceiling if that is your personal preference, just be sure to measure and make sure you have enough room for the rollers and track to move freely.

3. Hang Track on Wall

Utilizing the instructions provided, hang the track using the spacers and lag bolts. Be sure you are checking for wall studs and anchoring the screws properly according to wall type and instructions. You also want to ensure the wall itself can hold the weight of the track and door.

4. Mount the Door Hardware on the Door

Following the instructions, mount the barn door kit on top of the door. This is also when you will want to add any additional details like hardware or door pulls you have purchased. A door handle should be installed around 36 inches above the floor height.

5. Hang Door on track and Install Door Guides

Have a family member or friend help you lift the door onto the track, and gently ease it into place. Then, mark the spaces for the bottom guide and screw them into position to provide stability to your newly hung sliding door. This will keep it from wobbling, knocking against your wall, scuffing the wall, or generating any noise and will give it extra stability.
