I'm building a greenhouse and am trying to figure out how to create a
sliding door. A door opening outwards would be very awkward, in the
Is there some way I can adapt an existing door and plug something into
the bottom to enable the door to slide back 'n forth.
Any help much appreciated.
I was trying to do something similar and was unable to find anything
useful in the shops. What I did was fit some angle iron as a runner
along the opening, like an L and used some short off cuts of the angle
iron fixed onto the doors with brackets as an inverted V.
It required a little welding to make it up, but it supports a double
heavy pair of doors, all the weight of the doors being taken by the
angle iron. A small amount of grease and they slide quite well, with a
simple guide along the floor to keep them in place.
Email me and I will send you jpg's of the job.
