GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan, November 2, 2015— Knape & Vogt announces its entry this week into the hot-trending interior sliding barn door market with its launch of barn door hardware. The global manufacturer and distributor of functional hardware brings to market four distinct systems for interior barn door installations with a lineup of styles from rustic to contemporary in designer finishes including sleek stainless steel.

With real estate at a premium, the space-saving aesthetic of the sliding barn door is in high demand as architects and designers create spaces within spaces. Affordable cost is another selling point for today’s interpretation of the iconic barn door style.

“We always track with trends in the marketplace, so sliding barn door hardware is a natural extension of our sliding door hardware line,” said Vice President for Marketing and Product Development, Pete Ross. “Today’s home and commercial interior designs call for creating more space out of less. The breadth and depth of our barn door hardware line gives designers more options for space savings, and cost savings as well. Plus they get the quality they’ve come to expect from Knape & Vogt.”

Interior barn doors can be used to define an open area, create a separate space or save space in a tiny room while adding interest to the overall design setting. Applications include lofts and offices; hotel closets and bathrooms; bedrooms with en suite bathrooms; dividing kitchen from pantry; laundry room; enclosures for wall-mounted TV.

Knape & Vogt’s extensive product selection includes four distinct offerings:

  • Stainless steel round rail. Six carrier styles are available, including three top mount options for wood applications and three face mount options for glass or wood. KV sells complete kits that include the rail, carriers and all mounting hardware.
  • Stainless steel flat rail. One unique carrier style is available for wood doors. KV sells the complete kit, including the rail, carriers and all mounting hardware.
  • Aluminum round track in three designer finishes: oil rubbed bronze, black and satin nickel. Eight carrier styles are available in complete kits with all necessary mounting hardware. Tracks are sold separately in 4-foot, 6-foot and 8-foot lengths.
  • Aluminum flat rail in sleek black with four carrier styles: three hook- or strap-mount and one top mount. KV sells hardware in complete kits; rails are sold separately in 4-foot, 6-foot and 8-foot lengths.
