replace single roller with double?

A handy person from Manlius, NY says:
Have very heavy Arcadia 4' wide slider. It has single rollers at front and rear which your #81-023 replace. These seem to wear very quickly and door becomes very hard to slide in couple of years. Would replacement with double roller assemblies prolong life between cleanings and replacement?

Thanks for posting. I think that a change to a tandem roller may help. We do not currently have any that would replace your 81-023 roller but we have found something that may work. We will post in this thread as soon as we have more information available.

Please take a look at new SWISCO product code 81-157, tandem roller for a sliding patio glass door. Do you think this could work?
