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.
Quantity of doors on track:
Please tell us how many doors you wish to hang on this hardware track.
"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.
"Tell me more … "
Choose from a variety of wheel options such as a standard matching steel wheel or a matching 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.
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.
"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.
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.
Add a Teardrop Lock:
A teardrop lock is a lock especially designed for interior sliding doors. It provides privacy and is a popular choice for bathroom and bedroom applications. It can be opened from the other side in case of an emergency with a credit card. Note: teardrop locks are not compatible with ledger boards.
Add Drywall Anti-crush Rings:
Drywall anti-crush rings will protect your drywall when mounting hardware directly to the wall. Each pack contains 1/2" rings and 1/8" rings, and there are 5 of each. Note: Blocking in the wall is required to mount your hardware directly to the wall. These rings merely act as spacers between the blocking and the standoff.
Add ¼” Standoff Extensions:
All Flat Track hanger styles (except top-mounted Aero) require a minimum clearance of 3/8” between the door and wall or existing molding. Use 1/4" standoff extensions to achieve the necessary clearance.
Add a Matching Skyrise Flush Pull:
A Skyrise flush pull is a sleek, rectangular, steel recessed pull that allows you to open and close your sliding door with ease. See the Skyrise product page for more details.
Add the new Soft Stop:
The soft stop is a hidden mechanism that brings your door to a soft, silent close rather than the door banging against the end of the track.
Add a ledger board:
A ledger board is a sturdy piece of lumber to mount your hardware to, eliminating the need for wood blocking in the wall or custom flat track hole placement for difficult stud configurations.
Ledger board finish:
After choosing your ledger board species, you can choose a finish such as a lacquer, white primer, or one of our weathered series shades.
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.
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.
Opener Battery Backup:
The battery backup is an add-on that allows you to operate the Franklin opener despite power outages.
The Homelink Compatibility option is an add-on that allows you to operate your garage door system directly from your car.
Wireless Outdoor Keypad:
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.

Shop Applied Finish:
Please tell us whether you would like us to apply the door finish for you by selecting "yes" or "no." If you choose "yes" we will ship the door pre-finished. If you choose "no" we will ship the door raw and include the finish you selected above.
We can ship the barn door pre-assembled or unassembled. If you would like us to pre-assemble the door for you, shipping it whole, choose "yes." If you would like the door shipped in pieces to assemble yourself, choose "no."
"I'm extremely pleased with the quality and finish of the classic barn door hardware. We installed five different doors in our latest project. We couldn't be happier with the fit and finish and ease of installation."
