sliding doors

buckhornAugust 27, 2009

I have a 30'X96' hoop house. The endwalls are constructed out of wood with a 12'W X 8'H door opening on each end. I would like to hang wood framed sliding doors covered with salvaged poly. The doors would be 6'W X 8'H and slide out from the middle. My problem is i can't find cheap door rail tract and rollers for doors this size. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you

What's your budget? You'll have to spend a moderate amount for something functional. I have two ideas:
1) If the doors are relatively light, you can get regular hang track at the big box stores for $20 for an 80" length. Two of these and 3-4 rollers per door should work fine.
2) If the doors are heavier, try the link below for heavier duty hardware at fairly reasonable prices.

Here is a link that might be useful: Farmtek door hardware

When two 6' doors are both slid all the way open the total track length will be 24'! How do you propose supporting each door out beyond the greenhouse wall?
If you really require a 12' opening then perhaps a hinged pair of doors each supported by a wheel on the ground running on a concrete curb or track,

He did mention in the OP that his hoophouse is 30 ft wide.
