    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking for some cabinet door slides that will be able to slide open a "door" in front of the tanks cabinet. I tried builders but couldn't find them. This is what they look like:

    This is what it should be able to do:

    Cool thanks a lot. Just checked their site now and they have a shop right by my house. How much did they cost?

    about forty bucks for a pair. Those things are great and they hold heavy weights.

    I know you durban people get everything for cheaper. I phone the lamp house the other day and couldn't get hold of Joburg branch, so phoned durban. They quoted me R310 where Joburg eventually quoted me R430. Anyway, thanks for the help, I'm going there tomorrow.

    Only problem that I have with them is the running length. I cant find rails longer than 500 - 550mm. You can also try kitchen places. They use them for pot drawers.
