What is the Purpose of Door Runners?
If you’ve seen a sliding door then this question may seem obvious, however the role which the tracks (otherwise known as runners) plays in providing sliding doors which operate with a smooth motion should never be overlook; so what is the role of a door runner? Aside from creating a track for your doors to slide along which is smooth and devoid of any obstacles, it also needs to be strong enough to withstand the weight of the doors. It’s with this in mind that sliding door gear usually comes with a maximum weight capacity. So, if you are searching for sliding door gear then make sure that this is on the list of requirements, make a note of how heavy your doors are and account for the unexpected; for instance, people leaning on the doors as they slide them along.
Buying runners, tracks or any form of sliding door gear doesn’t need to be a difficult task, and in fact when you choose to come to Runners you can expect everything to run smoothly from start to finish.
