SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Glass slider door wheel chassis

A handy person from Nice, France says:
I'm hoping you can help me identify and provide several of the slider wheel rollers identified in my pictures. I did not see that you needed the pics of the rollers installed in the door until the door was reinstalled (it is a large project to get them out), but they are fastened to the door frame using the bolt you will see on the left side of pic 1825. Please note all measurements are in cm (not inches).

Our house was built 8 years ago, and this two-sided sliding door is becoming increasingly difficult to open, so I am looking to replace our main terrace door rollers now, but to pick up several spares for use in other doors in the house at a later date. I'm probably looking to source 8-10 of the mechanisms.

The windows/doors were built in France, if that helps you narrow your search. The window company that installed is out of business for several years now, and there is no identifiable branding we can find.

If you would like to suggest a call, I will call you to discuss alternatives.

I'm afraid I don't recognize this roller assembly or manufacturer. If you can, please double check your measurements. The tape ruler looks like mm not cm. Going by the mm dimensions, you could possibly consider our 81-138, which is 19.05 mm wide by 25.4 mm high. The dimensions are close, but you will still need to retrofit it in your frame. Please review and let me know what you think.
A handy person from Nice, France says:
Paul,

Yes, you are correct that the tape in in mm. 81-138 looks about right as well. Can you please tell me the typical track measurement I should be looking at to ensure the 81-138 wheels are compatible with my track. Once I have that nailed down, it's time to order.

Many thanks for the help.

Regards,

David R.

Sure, David. The width of the wheel is 7.9375 mm and the depth of the inside curve is 3.175 mm. It easily rolls on a track rail like the 80-106, which has a rail dimension 4.7625 mm.
