Yes, our hardware is manufactured to clear any standard molding, trim, or door frame on an existing doorway. The standard spacer is 1 1/2″. We also have spacers ranging from 1″- 2 1/2″ upon request.

How to install the hardware with a header board:

To secure the track to the wall and add support for the heavy barn door, cut a 1" x 4"mounting board the same length as, but a little wider than, the track. Use the drywall anchors, spacers and lag bolts to secure the mounting board. In this project, the mounting board was painted black and the edges rounded slightly for a more finished appearance.
