The lower quality profile is recycled aluminum, and its toughness and service life will be far more than aluminum profile sliding doors.

2. The pulley track is the key

The sliding door has two sets of upper and lower pulleys. The upper pulley plays a guiding role. Because it is installed in the upper part of the track, consumers often ignore it.

Usually the better upper pulley structure is quite complicated, not only has a bearing inside, but also an aluminum block to fix it, so that when it slides smoothly, there is no noise.
