Default Trying to decide on tracks

I am building a few enclosures and the largest is 5' long and 26" high so the doors will be 31x24". My question is should i go with plastic or aluminum tracks?

Over time ive noticed plexi runs smoother longer on plastic tracks, while glass when heavy drags and does better on aluminum tracks.

I've been trying to aggregate track options. Who are your potential track suppliers?
