Pole barn buildings come in a multitude of designs and architectures. In addition, you have just as many pole barn doors to select from. Options include conventional residential-style front doors and overhead doors not unlike the typical garage door. Let’s have a look at some of these door variants.
1. Sliding Doors
Sliding doors are much like a patio glass door that’s set on a track and slides open and shut. This is a popular door type for pole buildings used for the storage of heavy and bulky equipment. This door type, though, isn’t the most efficient from an insulation standpoint due to the difficulty of installing weather stripping.
2. Overhead Doors
This is very similar to your average home garage door, complete with a garage door opener and remote control. Since the door comes in a panel design just like a home garage door, it gives your pole barn a homely vibe in the exterior.
3. Bi-Fold Doors
Bi-fold doors have upper and middle hinges that fold during operation. This is a common door type for airplane hangars, though it’s not quite as common in modern times. More owners are opting for hydraulic doors.
4. Hydraulic Doors
Hydraulic doors have hinges at the top and open and shut using hydraulic rams. Constructors usually use hydraulic doors for the end wall of a pole barn. This is also a good selection for buildings intended for housing RVs and tractors.
5. Traditional Walk-In Door
Even if you opt for one of the above door types, the building should still have a regular walk-in door. This makes it easy to enter and exit without having to operate a large door. Plus, it offsets wear and tear on the larger doors if any hydraulic mechanisms are at play.
