exterior barn sliding doors


I was looking to do a barn style sliding door on my shed I'm going to build.

I was looking at this hardware system which RONA has for sale right now.


When I went and looked at the packaging it said interior doors only... Curious if this would hold up for exterior use or if there was something comparable?

Barn Door Hardware

I prefer an enclosed track design to protect the rollers and bearings from the weather.

The track will be mostly covered I'm assuming by roof overhang so I wonder if it will be enough. I cant seem to find exterior door kits.

It will rust in the elements. It is not rated for exterior use. I'm sure if you searched you could find an all stainless variant that will work in your situation.
