Drawer Slide for Cabinet w/o back

I would like to put pullout shelves in bathroom face frame cabinets, but all the drawer glides seem to require rear mounting brackets. The cabinets do not have backs (except for the upper drawers) and I prefer not to attach anything (like a spacer board) to the plaster wall at the back of the cabinet. Although I could perhaps attach a spacer board to the sides of the cabinet, I was wondering if anyone knows of drawer guides that mount to a bracket that would attach to the sides of the cabinet instead of the rear of the cabinet. My kitchen cabinets, which were put in years ago by a no longer existing kitchen cabinet store, used blum drawer glides mounted to seemingly manufactured side spacers which have holes drilled in them allowing the shelves to be disassembled and repositioned if desired. I cannot find anything in stores or on the Internet similar to these spacers, so perhaps they were custom made by this store.

I would use a simple "L" bracket mounted to the floor.
