SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority


A quick learner from SOUTH FLORIDA says:
I have a long track 19 ft. Only 6-7 ft of damage. Can I put a 8 ft track cover on , will the door travel over the end of the track cover and come back up onto the track cover. Or should I do the whole track ( 19 ft). If I do the whole track can I but the ends of the cover together and will the door go over the end smoothly?

What is better the large cover shaped like a V or the snap on cover?

Thanks for posting. I just have a couple questions. First, how tall is your track? Second, what is the distance travel for the sliding door? That will determine if you can just cover the track partially. If not, then you can just cover the whole thing and butt two ends together.

Also, if your track has a bulb top, then you might want to consider our 80-103. If not, or if it's too damaged, then the taller 80-100 might be better.
