Sliding shed door hardware

I am looking for the shed door hardware that slides the door along the outside of the building.

I found a picture of a wrought iron one for an interior door that slides the door along the wall instead of a pocket door or a swing door.

Would like to use an old shed door I have found to close a room in this manner. Haven't found any sliding door hardware like you show in your blue door example on the web site.

Sliding Shed door Hardware

Just a comment - as i had originaly thought of doing this as well - there is a security issue with sliding doors as they can be sprung off of their rail, therefore you may want ot consider some additional iron work to make the door secure.

Hi Susan,

Thankyou for your question.

I take it these are the blue sliding doors that you were talking about.

In the UK a couple of sliding shed door manufacturers to watch out for would be Henderson and Helaform (their UK distributor is Barrier Components Ltd).

In the US, Better barns and Rockler have architectural style sliding door gear. The best value place to find this equipment though would be a farm supply store. This type of door is used extensively on farm buildings, as farmers are pretty cost conscious folk so you should find them at a good price too.

Hope this helps.
