Woodworking Experience:
The track works very well it was easy to cut and my panels slid nice and smooth. One thing I would recommend is that they would come prebored . I use brads to secure them.

Height allotment for track vs opening height?
john p on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: TO OBTAIN PANEL WIDTH: Surface installation-cut panel 7/16" LESS than height of finished opening. Recessed installation-cut panel 7/16" LARGER than height of finished opening.
TO OBTAIN PANEL WIDTH: Add 1/2" to opening width & divide by 2 for doors that overlap 1/2". Add 1" to opening width for 1" overlap
how much weight can these tracks handle. how large a piece of 1/4 inch glass will slide properly?
Bill F on Sep 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have used it for 18" x 36" glass and it slides nicely.
Instructions says I can install with glue. What type of glue to mount on wood?
tgruszka on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I used Titebond II and clamps. Let it set for at least 12 hours and it does that trick!
Will this track work with 1/8 inch thick glass?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used 3/16" glass in these tracks with no problem. 1/8" glass should work just fine.
This product contains upper and lower set? I don´t see any info about upper or lower
David M on Dec 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you look closely at the picture you might be able to see the height of the top track is greater than the height of the bottom track. That height difference allows you to lift the sliding panel into place over the bottom track. Gravity and the top track then hold the panel into place.
will this work with 1/4 inch plywood panels?(not glass doors) or is there a better choice?
tamara e on Dec 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This will work with anything that is 1/4 thick. Just make sure there are no splinters on the wood and put a little wax on the wood for easier sliding.
can i get this in 8' lenths
Noel M on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you can you would have to go to some place special if Rockler can't help you. I would suggest a glass shop where they sell glass sheets for special doors and windows.
I have some 8mm glass (about 5/16") which I would like to use as sliding cupboard doors. Does anyone know where I can get tracks that will accommodate this thickness of glass?
Bruce on Apr 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Your glass would be a very tight - if not impossible - fit if you tried to use this track; it's just barely over 1/4".
I bought it for the same purpose (china cabinet doors), but my glass is only 3/16" - even that will be close!
However, my project got put on hold, so I haven't actually used it yet, but I think it will be fine for what I need.
Hopes this helps you decide what NOT to buy!
I am building a cabinet, have two 10" x 22" x 1/8" thick glass panels. need track hardware?
Dana E on Aug 28, 2015
The double track in plastic will work very well. I recently made a cabinet with similar size doors and the track worked very well. I used plexiglass plastic for the doors to reduce the overall weight of the cabinet. Lowes will cut the to size. Do some figuring first and you may both doors out one piece. Saves a few bucks. Lastly think about the handle placement on the doors. Hard to get them off if you put them on the wrong side. They come with the track.
Good luck. It should go pretty easily.
How’s the best way to fasten to metal stud and can longer track be purchased ?
Steve-o on Nov 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These glides are not intended for a wall in dilation installation. They are fairly lightweight and good for cabinets.
What if I need a track that's 77" long???? Are you able to cut? And what would be the cost?
Thor1031 on Aug 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Put two of them end to end (if the groove is good there won't be any seam problem) and cut one to the length you want -- you can use any handsaw with fine teeth to cut the tracks.
Building a snake cage with (2) 4ft. doors and was interested in these tracks but wondering how they can be secured to wooded cage? Need to do more than just glue down.
Justin C on May 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I made a 4x6 ft reptile cage and used these for sliding glass door fronts. I secured them with liquid nails and then added a wood trim piece on each side to secure. Worked great.
How will I attach this to a frame? I am planing to use this as a sliding door. which will hold 1/4 inch acrylic.
Sev S on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's been quite a while since I installed the tracks, and I always over do things. I routed a 1/4" dado in the top and bottom of cabinet and used an adhesive glue in the dado to adhere the track to the dado bottoms. But if I remember they supplied small wire brads with heads that could be used to nail the tracks onto the top and bottom of your cabinet. You will beed to use a nailset or something similar to pound the nails flush to the bottom of the tracks
What is the thickness of material at the bottom of the track where the glass sits? I need to subtract that thickness from my dimensions so glass can slide properly,
Mike L on Sep 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Your best bet is to install the track first. The glass will fit up into the top track and then drop into the bottom.. Notice the top track is deeper than the bottom.
What other hardware will I need with the track?
Billie S on Jun 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The track works well by itself. I have glass doors that I put in the track. I would suggest a handle, hole, or tab on the sliding door if it doesn't already have one. For mine I used self-adhesive clear plastic tabs that I bought from glass people. For cutting the track I would suggest a hand saw and miter box. It was a cleaner, safer cut compared to a power tool and the material cuts easily. I cut a dado into the top and bottom of my cabinet to receive the track and glued it in place with construction adhesive. This makes it virtually invisible.
Do these upper and lower tracks work for the side tracks as well?
Daren W on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I didn't use them for the sides, however there shouldn't be a problem using them on the side of the opening if you're just using them to block any opening that might occur at the ends of the sliding door panels. I would use the deeper of the two tracks for that purpose so be sure you order enough track to accomplish that. I fastened my tracks with 3m double face tape along the entire length and they've stayed in place for 2 years now.
I am concerned about smooth sliding of 4' x 4' glass mirrors with rollers, is there a similar version with rollers?
Skipv on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. These tracks won't take the weight of plate glass mirrors. Unless, they are framed and have rollers built into the frame.
Will this work for 3/8" door panels? How wide are the channels?
Philip L on Oct 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I used 1/4 in. Panels in my application but I think if you could rabbet the edge of the 3/8 panel to a 1/4 in. It should work
Would this tracking system work for a standard large bathroom vanity mirror cut down to be used as doors for a built in recessed medicine type cabinet? Or is a vanity mirror ~22” w x 36” h to heavy?
CustomMade on Aug 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I think it would be fine because I used about the same size glass quarter inch thick and it works great

Are there similar tracks for 1/2 " plywood panels?
Victoria M on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think so the best way to find ought would be to ask Rockler. I have used the smaller size and they work great.
I have a by-pass glass sliding door in size 402mm*1202mm*6mm, would it be working smoothly with this plastic door track? Jack Wu
Jack Wu on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The track is quite slick compared to metal, they should work out fine.
do the instructions include measurement guides for ordering glass? I have a project that I would like to be able to pop the doors out of while still keeping them secure.
Vivian S on May 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Take the top to bottom opening measurement prior to installing the track and subtract 7/16". This will allow you to pop up into the larger track and then place into the shorter lower track. The width of the glass should have a 1" overlap. So for a 41" opening, you would need two pieces of 21" wide glass to achieve the 1" overlap.
Will this work for 24" x 30" glass doors 1/4 " thick?
tandy1 on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It deffinetly will. just make sure the glass will be able to take the beating kids and others will give without breaking. So it should be a good quality glass.
