I am contemplating making a 4' H x 7'10" W x 6" D sliding glass door
wall cabinet. I have no problem with getting the wood, but I am
wondering where I can get the glass doors and double track. This will be
like the floor display cabinets in a jewelry store. The back of the
display case has a two pane glass door with a slide lock that has to be
unlocked to slide either door open. The glass panels will be 4' x 4'
leaving a 2 inch overlap for the lock mechanism. Maybe a glass shop can
cut the glass for the doors and glass shelves, if I can't find any
online or somewhere, so I may only need a source for the slide hardware.
Google is your friend.
Do a search for "door track". You may want to include the word glass in
there too. This is a very common item. It should be easy to locate numerous
You local glass company may have everything you need also.
Find a glass shower door manufacturer in your area. It is standard
hardware for them.
Years ago, had a one who was a next door neighbor.
As an alternate, once installed a sliding door system back in
Cleveland that used panels of 1/4" plywood in each door frame.
This was to close of a 10ft wide opening using 3 sliding door panels
on a dual track.
Recently saw same system that used 1/4" plate glass mirrors instead of
plywood here in SoCal.
Don't know where to find one now, but it still has to be out there
Bill, I've done a few glass door projects...the best track assembly
that I've found uses an aluminum bottom double track and a rail system
wth small wheels that fits over the glass. I get my cabinet hardware
at an outfit called "E.B.Bradley" but it's for contractors and
retailers only, however, you can get to their catalog and see what's
out there...just google e.b.bradley and your off and runnin'...betcha
you have a similar cabinet supply near you somewhere, also betcha you
can find the hardware online...OH, the first time I used this system I
actually got it through my glass shop, so there ya go, you can prolly
get both ducks roasted at one place...
