Designed to significantly reduce the snagging that can occur when trying to open a coop door.
We use a beautiful American red oak handcrafted by local craftsmen in Texas 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 to bring out the detail of oak is recommended. 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.
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 (such as the Coop Defender) as it reduces the chances of the door snagging on the runners which stops the door itself from opening.
Aluminum Door Size: 12 in x 16 in. With a pre-drilled hole for attaching the opener string. Oak Runner Length: 24 in.
