What exactly do Drawer Slides do?

Telescopic drawer slides are essential for allowing a smooth open and closing procedure, allowing for easy use. Drawer slides see very frequent use, particularly in the transport sector for fire, rescue & emergency vehicles, cargo vans, maintenance trucks and utility vehicles, making efficient drawer slides all the more important in the commercial vehicle industry.

What types of Telescopic Slides are available in the new range?

What really makes our new range of telescopic drawer slides great is the amount of choice available, covering a wide range of different applications so that the needs of the customer are easily met.

With Extra Heavy-Duty Slides (150kg+), Heavy-Duty Slides (100 to 150kg), Medium-Duty Slides (51 to 99kg), and Light-Duty Slides (up to 50 kg), and Drawer Release Systems, it’s a breeze for the customer to find a slide that meets their load capacity requirements.

Not only this, but we also have a variety of different slide lengths available to ensure that the user can access what they want of the drawer, as well as disconnect options available, allowing the user to entirely remove the drawer.

How do you choose the ideal Drawer Slides?

There are a few things to consider when deciding on the right drawer slide for the application at hand:

  • What is the weight your drawer needs to handle (load capacity)?
  • Will the drawers need to lock in certain positions, such as an open position, closed position, both or neither?
  • Will the slides require a disconnect so the drawer can be completely removed?
  • Are you looking for hidden slides or visible slides?
  • How much of the drawer will need to be accessed? From this, the user can select their ideal drawer slide length.

Asking these questions allows the customer to narrow down their options considerably and, from there, choosing the ideal drawer slide becomes significantly easier.

The type of material is also an important factor when deciding on the ideal telescopic drawer slide. Steel slides are great as they are both economical and ideal for many applications, however it will be worth considering stainless steel or aluminium if environmental conditions are an important factor as they are corrosion resistant. Stainless Steel slides are also highly durable, and aluminium provides a lighter solution which is ideal for eliminating unnecessary weight.
