Please Note: Any track length over 8ft will come in seperate segments which will be easy to combine with provided Splice Plates & Hardware.
Example: A 5ft wide door will need a 10ft track which will come with 2 5ft segments.
If you require a size not listed call in for a custom order as we can fabricate any track length or customize the track to your needs.

If your wall does not have solid blocking you can order with no holes, and drill yourself to align the holes to your studs.
It is important that when installing your track, your lags go into something solid. You cannot lag into just the sheetrock.
Pre-Drilled Track: A Pre-Drilled Track will work for you if you have an interior or exterior header/blocking to lag into. Our Tracks are drilled to evenly space the weight. They are NOT drilled to hit studs.
No Holes: Getting a Track with No holes is best if you are planning to lag into your studs. This makes it so you can drill the holes on site to line up with your studs.
Most of our doors are offered as "Door Kits" (The door itself comes in pieces). A Door-Kit requires some assembly of the door slats, where as an Assembled Door requires no assembly. Neither option includes installation of door hardware.
If a Door Kit if ordered, you will receive a box approximately 7' x 1' x 6" (sizes vary depending on order). Typical assembly time is approximately 45 minutes.
Assembled doors will be shipped via Freight and will arrive in a crate. Please note, the hardware is not installed on the door in this option.
"It is our aim to provide our customers with as many options as possible but occasionally that can make things difficult to ship. Due to shipping restrictions all doors, not shipped as a kit (unassembled), that are over 5 feet wide and 7 feet tall will be shipped to the UPS hub nearest to customers desired address. The customer will then be responsible for transporting the item(s) from the hub to the desired destination.
A general rule is to add 4 inches to the length of your track. If you order a 7ft track they’ll need a 7ft 4 in header.
If the header exceeds 8ft it will be shipped in sections, all necessary equipment will be provided.
