ALSO INCLUDED is the Oak runner and Door Kit.

Designed to significantly reduce the snagging that can occur when trying to open a coop door.

The Runners

We use a beautiful American red oak handcrafted by local craftsmen to create the runners.  American red oak was chosen due to it’s superior strength & quality when facing the elements.

Without treatment the runners will last between 8 & 10 years.  If you would like to use a wood treatment, a clear wood lacquer is recommended to bring out the detail of oak.  When affixing the runners we send you 6 stainless steel screws. If you want a different color, use brass screws as neither brass nor stainless steel screws rust.

The door

Made from aluminum, it’s cut by a local precision metal company out of Allen, Texas.  The laser cut helps to reduce the rough edges that conventional cutting can produce.  Incredibly important when using an automated coop door opener as it reduces the chances of the door snagging on the runners which stops the door itself from opening.
