Sliding door tracks and runners

Sliding door tracks and runners – also known as sliding door gear – is the hardware used to install sliding doors in rooms and furniture to allow them to open smoothly. As well as considering the function and appearance, the best system will depend on the size of the doors, as most sliding door tracks and runners will have a maximum weight capacity. 

When choosing the most appropriate sliding door tracks and runners, it’s worth noting that not all kits require a bottom track. In some cases, the top track can hold all the weight of the door, so it removes the need for a bottom track completely. This is a popular option for walk in wardrobes or where sliding doors are used to separate rooms. Other systems may still hold all the weight of the door from the top track, but have a bottom track to help guide the sliding door.
