Using 81-149 mortised in 5' wood door

I am looking at tandem roller 81-149. But I would like to use a pair of them mortised into a 5' wood door. Any reason this would not work in this type of application? I also assume you sell the roller track. How about a header guide?

The 81-149 is one of the more popular styles used in wood door applications, so I think it's a good place to start. You will need to make the bottom stile of your wood door "beefy" enough to fit the roller, if that makes sense. As for a bottom track, we do have the 80-105, which is 8' long, and the mirror closet door track 23-247 could work for the top. That said I'm not sure if 8' is long enough for your application. You may need to butt two smaller tracks together.
