What is the difference between a single track bypass and a double track bypass?
A single track bypass involves up to four doors slliding in front of or behind another on a single track, which is ideal for smaller openings where space is limited. These doors are always “connected” due to the nature of the single track. On the other hand, a double bypass accommodates up to four doors on two separate tracks, providing a wider range of configurations, and serving as an elegant solution for larger door openings or closets. This allows doors to fully bypass one another as a second track is added. This option offers the greatest amount of maneuverability for your doors.
What is the standard overlap for a barn door?
The standard overlap for a barn door is typically around 1’’-2’’ inches on each side. This ensures proper coverage, allowing the door to effectively block light and provide privacy while maintaining a visually appealing and functional design.
