A soft close mechanism for barn doors is designed to slow down the movement of the door and gently guide it to a close without slamming or making a loud noise. Unfortunately most available “soft close” designed for barn doors have a weight restriction and will not work on heavy doors. This left client’s with the only option of using a standard stop that has a hard close/bounce.
The Tennessee Barn Door designed mechanism is installed where the previous old end stop was and works by utilizing hydraulic damping technology creating a cushion of air that absorbs the momentum of the door and results in a smooth and silent close. It does not “pull” the door closed as do softclose but rather provides a cushion stop.
