Re: Painting Pole Barn Slider Door Rails


I just looked at the Mendards link again. They do have black. There is a spot to click that says view all and more options show up. I thought that was an awfully common color to not offer.

Re: Painting Pole Barn Slider Door Rails


Hoef you are referring to the extruded aluminum frame components that are typically white. Those components have a built in channel for the ext. steel and a larger pocket for accepting 2x material for purlins? Typically the high end stable doors etc. are aluminum as well and are powder coated.

Hoef17 I see your in Hastings, Mi. The quick frames are pretty standard here in Michigan. Back side of this barn has 6 sliding doors with the quick frames luckily the white wasn't an issue. The doors shown are all powder coated aluminum custom made. There a couple guys in Grand rapids that can powder coat if necessary.

Re: Painting Pole Barn Slider Door Rails


Here was my last text thread with my new question:
"Now let me throw a whole new pitch into this at bat....I just talked to my Local supplier and they now do not carry aluminum Rails, they carry powder coated steel rails. They just switched and they did so in part to hearing people have concern (me being one of those peeps) not wanting the aluminum and for painting difficulties. But they still come as an off white only and I looked it up...it is not a primer but a powder coat paint.
My question now becomes....What should I use for paint in this application and should I scuff and paint, scuff, prime, then paint?"

Sorry for beating a dead horse here but I am not a painter and I am trying not to spend a bunch of money on alpha checks and R & D. How would one prep powder coat paint (on steel) for another paint to go over top? what paint should I use once prepped?

Zinsser 123 sticks to anything clean, even glass. You can Then try to paint with BM Scuff-X. I think they can mix it in black.

Call these guys and ask:

Re: Painting Pole Barn Slider Door Rails


You're at a High School, right? If it were me, I'd walk over to the Ag building and have them set me up with whatever implement paint and primer they use on their projects, and then borrow a spray gun from them to put it on. Or better yet, have your students take the trim over there and have the Ag students spray it.


Implement paint is tough. And cheap. And comes in about as many colors as pole barn metal does.

Re: Painting Pole Barn Slider Door Rails


Thanks to XJCraver.... I contacted my local John Deer dealer (Green Mark Equip Inc.), told them what we were doing and he sold me two products 1) Lacquer Buff Primer 2) JD Black paint and both were affordable, worked awesome, and am confident will hold up really well......just like the paint on their tractors.
Thanks XJCraver.....got me pointed to the right person.
