Viba sliding barn doors aren’t just beautiful, they’re also incredibly durable, functional, and easy to use! Part of the reason that our doors and hardware are so well-liked is because of their nylon wheels; nylon wheels bring both stability and elegance with their strength and their ability to roll quietly. If you’re wondering what the best wheel option is for your sliding barn door, nylon is a perfect choice, which is why at Viba we use nylon wheels for our door hardware.
Soft Close Technology
Most of the hardware that we sell for our sliding barn doors is equipped with soft-close technology, meaning that our hardware slows our doors to a stop in the last three inches on the close. We take pride in selling doors that do not close too quickly or loudly, which makes our doors safer and easier to use than traditional swinging doors. A significant part of the soft-close technology is our nylon wheels that allow the door to close smoothly and slowly without resistance, making the nylon wheels the best option for a sliding barn door.
Metal wheels on a metal rail are fine... for an actual barn. Inside your home they are just plain loud! Using nylon avoids that noise without sacrificing durability. Squeaking hinges or the slamming of a traditional swing door will also be a thing of the past, thanks to the nylon wheels and our soft close system. Nylon wheels are much quieter than metal wheels, making them the best option for naturally quiet rooms like libraries, offices, bedrooms, and nurseries.
Unlike traditional metal wheels, nylon wheels don’t rust, they don’t expand in warm temperatures, and they don’t need significant maintenance in order to keep them working. Our high-quality and highly durable ball bearing nylon wheels allow you to enjoy using your door again and again without worrying about it jamming, squeaking, rumbling, or just working poorly. Nylon wheels are the best option because they’re durable, reliable, and don’t require high maintenance like metal wheels.
