Real Sliding Hardware


Real Sliding Hardware is the leading manufacturer of sliding barn door hardware and interior barn doors. Here you will find that craftsmanship, excellence and innovation are of the utmost importance. We embrace the art of working with raw materials and the creative diligence to turn it into something extraordinary. 


Don Rees, owner and CEO of Real Carriage Door Company and Real Sliding Hardware, started out as a timber frame builder designing custom out-swing carriage doors to enhance the homes he created. The success of Real Carriage Doors led to Real Sliding Hardware and finally Real Barn Doors.   

Based in Washington State, utilizing local natural resources and talent is a cornerstone of our company. From reclaimed Douglas Fir barn doors to our hand-forged Hammered hangers, we take pride in everything we produce. By working locally we can offer a competitive product while honoring our Pacific Northwest roots.

Unsurpassed quality and workmanship is what you can expect when you choose Real Sliding Hardware. We lead the way in barn doors and sliding barn door hardware and we invite you to Build Real.™
