    I'd check http://cowdroy.com.au/range/sliding-glass-systems before ordering your doors to make sure you get the right thickness.

    You can order by mailorder from them too, taking the middleman (Bunnings you'll have fun finding Cowdroy system tracks there and their staff are next to useless IMO) out of the loop.

    4mm is thick enough, but for safety's sake get it in 5mm.
    Anything between about 2'-3'(60-90cm) should be in at least 5mm.

    I use the Cowdroy double channel plastic sliding door tracks. 5mm glass works well in them.
