Default Sliding tracks for glass doors?

I'm finishing a large vivarium for the brookesia and mantella I'm working with. I was wondering what everyone uses for the tracks for sliding doors on some vivariums. The have a "J track" at home depot but the grooves for the 2 pieces of glass to slide into seem way too small for most any vivariums glass door. Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Default Door tracks

As promised here is the link for sliding door tracks. It is avail thru outwater plastics..most of the time you need to purchase a specified quanity of the material but here ya go.. ... catalog=ow
If your looking at tracking for 1/4 inch doors I have quite a bit of excess from my last order..keep in mind that the gap between the sliding door are around 3/16 which is large enough for thumbs to excape. They do work nicely for large vivariums containing larger darts such as tincs. If you need more info drop me a not and I will share my trial and errors.
Happy new year Dan
