As Saf says, he found vertical bars, but not horizontal. The context could be important, but "double horizontal bar" sounds to me like "double bond" in chemistry. Is that the context? If so, I don't think HTML has it, although I believe it is supported in STIX.

In http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-entity-names/020.html you'll find &#x2016; &Vert; and &Verbar; One advantage of using a numeric entity name is that all readers understand it.
