Accuride designs locking handle kit for emergency vehicles

After enquiries from the fire services industry in the UK we decided to enhance our slide offering with a push-button locking handle kit. The handle was designed for rugged drawer systems with Accuride’s slide and tilt system, but will fit in with any of our slides with a thickness of over 17mm.

This drawer handle has a centrally located push-button lock mechanism and two mounting options. The whole unit is easy and fast to install.

  • Double handle kit
  • Centrally located push-button lock mechanism
  • Two locking options:
    • Front mounted unit – lock-in only
    • Rear mounted unit – lock-in and lock-out
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Light weight and easy to install

Locking handle kit available from stock

The kit is held in stock (DBHAND) and can be bought direct by OEMs or, in smaller quantities and for standard cabinet drawers, through Accuride’s extensive distribution network.

Accuride also supplies heavy duty full extension and over-extension aluminium slides for the emergency vehicle industry. The slide with tilt for high bay storage is an ideal partner slide for the locking handle kit.
