  3. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2015

    My track (from a local box store) came with cheap plastic sliders. This one the C-Guide is an excellent product and would recommend it to anyone - shipping was faster than expected. Nothing like it in Canada.

  4. Great product - c-guide 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Sep 2015

    I could not find a c-guide anywhere in Canada in stock, and companies that were carrying the barn door hardware didn't seem to know what I was talking about.
    I ordered by phone, and Real Sliding Hardware got the product out the same day, and I had it by noon the following day.
    Great service, great quality product.
    My next barn door hardware set will come from your company next because of this c guide.

    These C-Guides are beautiful compared to the run-of-the-mill plastic you buy at the local hardware store. Just the type of detail we needed for our remodel. Thank you for making such a beautiful product.

    Very nice quality. Solid piece of hardware with a nice finish. I actually used these in pairs as bypass door guides since everything else on the market was really cheap looking.

Flat Track Hardware

Flat Track Sizes:

"How do I choose a track size?"
Simply double the size of your door(s) to determine the proper track length. Example: a 36" wide door will need a 6' track. Example: (2) 36" wide doors will require 12' of track.

Finish Options:

"Tell me more… "
Choose from a variety of powder coated finishes or raw steel. Our powder coated finishes consist of a durable baked-on finish. All powder coated finishes have a matte finish.

Quantity of doors on track:

"What's this?"
Please tell us how many doors you wish to hang on this hardware track.

Bottom Guide:

"What's this?"
The Bottom Guide keeps the door steady. The T-Guide is a floor mounted guide that requires a groove in the bottom of the door. The C-Guide is a floor mounted guide that cups the bottom of the door and is also available in an adjustable option. The Wall Mounted Stay Roller is a wall mounted guide that works with doors from 1-1/2" to 2-3/4" thick. This is an ideal guide for extra thick doors and exterior applications.

Door Thickness:

"Why do I need to specify a door thickness"
We ask for door thickness so we know what size of carriage bolt to include in the hardware kit. Carriage bolts attach the hanger to the door. If your door's thickness falls between sizes, simply round up to the next available size.

End Stop Option:

"What is an end stop"
End stops keep the door from flying off the track. Standard end stops are designed to fit at the far ends of the track, secured by the lag bolts. Adjustable end stops slide along the rail and tighten down with set screws wherever you wish.

Wheel Style:

"Tell me more … "
Choose from a variety of wheel options such as a matching steel wheel or a black Hush wheel. Or upgrade to a stainless steel wheel or a stainless steel Hush wheel. Hush wheels are made of a high quality, durable polymer and make for smooth, ultra-quiet operation.

Fastener Option:

"What's this?"
This refers to carriage bolts (which attach the hanger to the door) and lag bolts (which help secure the track to the wall). Choosing your fastener finish lets you customize the look of your hardware kit to your liking.

Box Rail

Box Rail Mounting:

"What does this mean?"
Please specify whether you want to mount the hardware kit to the wall or the ceiling so we can ensure you receive the proper mounting brackets.

Lag Bolts:

"What's this?"
Here you can specify whether you would like to order lag bolts through us or supply your own. A variety of finishes is available for those who wish to order lags through us. Save a trip to the hardware store with our high quality lags.

Franklin Openers

Opener Battery Backup:

"What's this?"
The battery backup is an add-on that allows you to operate the Franklin opener despite power outages.

Homelink Compatibility:

"What's this?"
The Homelink Compatibility option is an add-on that allows you to operate your garage door system directly from your car.

Wireless Outdoor Keypad:

"What's this?"
The Wireless Outdoor Keypad is an add-on allowing you to enjoy exterior access to your doors without a remote. Operates up to 10 doors.

Wiring Kit for Remodel:

Our wiring kit includes the approved, cut-to-length wiring we recommend for remodeling projects. Add to your opener order and save a trip to the hardware store.
