Slide selection

There are five stages in the selection of the most appropriate slide for your application.

1. Load rating

• Load ratings quoted are the maximum for a pair of side mounted slides installed 450mm apart, unless

otherwise stated

• Load ratings will change according to the length of the slide. See individual datasheets for details

• In general, wider drawers require a slide with a higher load rating and a cross section designed to withstand lateral

stress. Our technical department will be pleased to advise you

• See individual datasheets for details of cycle rates used for testing

• The measurements are taken between and at the midpoint of the drawer member and are given in kg

• Load ratings quoted are dynamic. Accuride® slides have a 100% static safety factor in the extended position

• Horizontally (flat) mounting the slides reduces the load capacity to at least 25% of the vertical (side) mount

capacity. Not all slide models can be used in flat mount applications

• Deflection of flat mounted slides will vary depending upon the application. We recommend prototyping to

determine that the deflection is within an acceptable range

• We advise clients to test slides in the intended application

• All fixing positions should be used to achieve maximum load rating

• Appropriate fixing materials must be used

• Mounting slides in different configurations will affect performance and load rating. See the illustrations below

Vertically mounted = 100% quoted load rating

Horizontally mounted = 25% quoted load rating
