What is the name of the stuff this frame is made out of? It's plastic, the normal 2 sliding door setup. Since it's plastic I'm thinking it's easier to replace than repaint.



But, I don't know what it's called and can't find it with a "stupid" search

Vinyl or aluminum extrusions, I've used them with up to 4 tracks
I've also made my own using teak 1x2 and a table saw.

Still striking out, Brett. Any keywords that I'm missing?

Not it, has a flange for a finished look around the outer edge. Will post profile pick in the A.M.

OK, here's a profile shot of the extrusion I'm looking for. I know this stuff should be easy to find IF I knew the name of it



It's just a simple track, that I can cut to length and place the corner piece in

Saw that profile when looking yesterday Tom.
Cabinet parts, bypass door channel/track
Am I blind? I found some from Taco marine, but they don't make the corner pieces so I'd have sharp 90 degree corners...

They make them in AL and rigid vinyl

Krylon Fusion seems to be the best way to get this stuff up to snuff, even the guys at jamestown distributors have never seen it

I'd say have them powdercoated, but then it might make for a tight fit for the sliding parts.

They're extruded vinyl! I think the curing would render them useless.

And yes, I painted them black....... ;)

Will post a pic when done. A buddy of mine has a dept at work that does the acrylic, so the sliding doors wound up being a freebie but will take a couple days. Cha-Ching!
