Feedroom x2, haybarn door – take great care when opening and closing these sliding doors, make sure to support with second hand always when opening, and slide door back evenly. So top and bottom parts of door stay on runners.
Additionally, be very gentle with door handle(s) – they are not secured with strong fixings.
Doors can dramatically change due to weather conditions – so reassess every time you open and close doors.
