kitchen drawer organizer


Hello
This is my 1st post on the forum. We have deep kitchen drawers that are set up for vertical storage of pots, lids,trays, etc. Glass partitions separate the various contents. The partitions are slotted into plastic groves in the front & back of the drawers. I believe the plastic material was originally in rolls with adhesive backing. Over time these have deteriorated. I have looked everywhere but cannot find replacements. I would appreciate any help you can offer or for alternative ideas. I've attached a photo to show the material.
Thanks

I did attach the photo and it was on the message when I reviewed it but failed to end up on the final post.

Here is the URL again:

It does look like some sort of vacuum formed plastic tape. I wonder if dado cuts in some other material like wood would hold up better. Only problem would be I am guessing your glass shelves are cut fairly snug? The would have to be trimmed to accommodate the base of the wood.

I will see what I can find for you. My curiosity is aroused.

Thanks for your interest and help. I have thought about routing some thin wood, but have procrastinated and have continued to hope to find the original. If it helps, the original material was applied about 15 years ago with a kitchen remodel.

Bombed out having tried every search string I could think. Router or dado blade may be your best bet? Resulting base thickness vs shelf length will be your challenge. I guess you just need it long enough to place the strip with Gorilla glue or something. Could then chisle voids away?

Might be able to duplicate that strip(s) in HDPE (plastic cutting board material). The problems there would be fastening it in place, HDPE is a little tricky to glue. I'd probably machine in a couple of bosses to accept screws from the outside of the draw box. Another issue may be that the, I assume tempered, glass dividers may need to be cut a tad shorter depending on how thin you end up with on the ends.

Sounds familiar but I believe it was originally made for CD storage. Have you searched for it that way?

Edited to add: It's sorta hard to see, but it looks like the CD storage in this desk.

I bought some U shaped, brass channel strips at Home Depot for a similar application. It came with screw holes for mounting purposes. Perhaps you could use something like this.

I found these in the place where they keep cabinet hardware. They were internded to be used as tracks for horizontal, sliding doors.
