The horizontal doors used on closet sliding doors move along a track mounted overhead and a floor guide for stability. To manage the smooth movement they‘ll have cushions and buffers on the ends to prevent damaging adjacent construction to ensure a smooth gliding motion when operated. Closet sliding doors of the vertical variety are seated in a groove, much like dresser drawers to ensure they glide in one direction.
