    Do Barn Doors Need a Bottom Guide?

    Do Barn Doors Need a Bottom Guide?

    To be safe, barn doors need a bottom guide to prevent the door from swinging or coming off the track. To ensure secure operation, we require all customers to choose a bottom guide when purchasing a barn door from Viba Barn Doors & Hardware.

    The standard guide included with our doors is invisible but is best for an experienced carpenter or handyperson. To install the standard bottom guide, you will need to route a channel on the bottom of the barn door with a slotting bit. If you’re not comfortable with this method, we also offer an EZ install bottom guide.

    As the name implies, our EZ Install Bottom Guide is simple to use and doesn’t require any additional tools. The piece is affixed to the wall trim and creates a channel which the barn door slides into. Once properly installed, the EZ Install Bottom Guide prevents the door from coming off the wall.

    Barn doors can be installed in a variety of ways to provide privacy while adding to the overall aesthetic of your home. They are also extremely safe, if properly constructed and installed. At Viba Barn Doors & Hardware, our standard hardware has five separate sets of features that ensure your door is safe, including; anti-jump blocks, end stops, soft close actuators, soft closing hardware and bottom guides.   

    If you would like to add the EZ Install Bottom Guide to your order, simply add it to your cart at checkout. It’s extremely affordable, costing less than $8 per guide.
