Drawer Slides Key Features and Benefits

1. Telescopic Drawer Slides
Our telescopic drawer slides feature a rigid member recirculating ball bearing slide structure, maintaining smooth motion over complete travel. This design ensures that drawers can be fully extended for easy access to contents while maintaining stability and reliability.

Smooth Operation: The recirculating ball bearing structure provides smooth, effortless drawer movement, even under heavy loads.

Full Extension: Telescopic slides allow drawers to be fully extended, providing total access to the contents and maximizing storage space.

2. High Static Capacity
The rigid structure of our drawer slides offers a high static capacity with minimal deflection. This means that even when fully loaded, the drawer slides maintain their integrity and stability, ensuring safe and reliable operation.

Noticed that under-mounting or bottom mounting of slides is not recommended because this will greatly reduce the load rating to approximately 1/4 the standard load rating.

Minimal Deflection: High static capacity ensures that the drawer slides remain stable and do not bend or warp under heavy loads. 

3. Quality Materials

All our telescopic drawer slides are made from quality cold-rolled steel with mounting holes and slots ready for quick installation. This ensures durability and ease of installation, saving you time and effort.

Durability: Cold-rolled steel provides strength and longevity, ensuring that your drawer slides remain functional for years.

Ease of Installation: Pre-drilled mounting holes and slots allow for quick and easy installation, reducing setup time and effort. 

4. Corrosion Resistance

Our drawer slides can be supplied with a bright electro-zinc plating for corrosion resistance or made from stainless steel where specified. This makes them suitable for use in various environments, including those exposed to moisture or corrosive elements.

Electro-Zinc Plating: Provides an attractive finish and protects the steel from corrosion.

Stainless Steel Options: Stainless steel slides are ideal for environments where corrosion resistance is critical, such as marine or laboratory settings.
