Best Bottom Track To Use

A home owner from Illinois says:

Thanks for taking my question.

I am remodeling a bedroom in my home and the closet had two sliding, hollow core doors. The doors utilized a top track only.

I'm replacing the doors with solid doors that are fairly heavy - possibly too heavy to hang just from the top track. If possible, I'd like to install a bottom track to guide the doors, as well as help support some of the weight.

Based on the various bottom tracks that you offer, is one of the bottom tracks better for helping carry weight, rather than just serve as only a guide?

Hey, Eric, thanks for posting. Before we look into bottom tracks, have you seen our 23-500? This is a sliding closet door top track that can hold two two 1-3/8" thick door panels that weigh up to 60 pounds each. Could this work for you? How heavy are your doors?

I just took a look at my doors - each one is 1-3/8" thick, 24"W x 80"H and each one weighs 49 pounds.

It sounds like 23-500 may do the trick.

Thanks for your help!
