I have just built some cabinets that have eight tambour doors. I used
"store bought" tambour and am not sure of the quality of the cloth
backing as to longevity. Has anybody used a method of additional
reinforcement to prevent future problems?
As Mike as said, painting canvas works fine for tambour doors and is easily
available. I wouldn't worry about reinforcing the ones you have until if and
when the original cloth starts to wear out. Fix it then.

The best way to extend mechanical devices is to clean, lube, and
maintain the guide surfaces. People force them when they stick.
That's what usually causes premature failure.

I wonder if you could glue some upholstery-type vinyl (threaded side to
the canvas) that would add some strength and longevity. Now that
you've got me thinking about it, why not use vinyl in the first place?
That naugahyde stuff last a billion years, even though innocent naugas
have to be schlaughtered to get the hides.
Just a bit of brainstorming.
