Can an Accuride full-extension drawer slide be used as a flat mounted slide?

Author: John Whittlesea, Technical support manager

Some full-extension (100% travel) slides can be flat (horizontally) mounted, but there will be a reduction in their load bearing capacity.

Typically this will reduce to 25% of the side mounted load rating.

For example, if we state that a side mounted slide can take a 100kg load, then the load will be reduced to 25kg if it is flat mounted.

Look for this symbol on the datasheet to see if the slide can be used in this orientation.

The Accuride 100% extension slides that can be flat mounted are:

DS0330, DZ3301, DZ3307, DZ3308, DZ0301, DZ0305, DS0305, DS3031, DZ3507, DZ5417, DZ7957, DZ9301, DP9301.

Some of our 75% extension slides can also be used in the horizontal position. See the individual datasheets for more information.
