    I'm looking to install a 3 door sliding wardrobe, and have a couple of questions.

    Firstly, can tracks be a butted together easily to fork a longer length, or does flex in the track mean doors can stick a little as they move over the joins?

    Secondly, is there any way of encouraging the middle door to 'pause' or slow down in its correct resting place, with less chance of overshooting, so that less overlap is needed? I'd like as little overlap as possible, without having to spend ages lining it up each time i close it.

    Thanks!

    One track is used.
    Have three door wardrobe and keeping them in position is a simple affair.

    OK, I was looking for some kind of damping that assisted with that. I've seen shop floor wardrobes which do that

    No heavy enough to require damping and don't close against anything to require it and don't get as heavy usage.
