    As an experiment I've fitted the middle shelf with the sliding acrylic panels using cord guide from lowes.



    Had to enlarge the slits in the cord guide to fit the sheets.



    It is not 100% sealed, but definitely better than what blinds provided. The only problem is that blinds had to go.

    I've kinda got the same thing going on in half the GH. Really helps with nightly temp drops and hiking up the daytime humidity.

    Gill,
    I don't think I have seen anyone has put in as much effort or made such a solid
    grow shelf since I have been here! WOW!
    You do get an A+ !

    When you do things, you sure go in all the way!
    Very nice Gill!


    You also have devised some interesting things using materials available!
    Very inventive!
    Nice Job!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    GrowinOld,

    Thank you very much for the kind words. But I think you give me much more credit than I deserve.
    Many of these things that I did to the rack I've seen here done by others on TF

    Thank you

    Great idea with the cord guides.

    I'm currently working on merging two 4 foot tanks into one and will have a sliding plexi glass door in front. I think I'll use your idea with the cord guides. Seems really inexpensive and easy to do. Great stuff!
    cheers,
    Rob

    Looking good man!

    Another good option for sliding glass, which I have use when making monitor cages is using plastic tracking for glass. You can find it at most glass places. Comes in 10' lengths and you cut to size.

    Example.

    This is what I was looking for originally. But since I did not have all day to look around in lowes and the employees there could not suggest anything useful cord guides had to be it.

    In addition the cord guide has an adhesive strip which hels hold itself in place (with some additional help) and its cheap.

    But next time im doind this kind of a setup im going with what you suggested.

    Thank you!
