Here at Accuride, we have slides suitable for both vertical and horizontal mounting. Vertical mounting (also known as side mounting) refers to when the drawer slide is installed at the side of the unit, while horizontal (or flat) mounting involves the slide is fitted to the base of the drawer unit.
The Shanghai Auto Show this April promises to reveal the latest advances in the automotive industry, and with rumours that Grammer AG will be there, we take a look at the impact an innovative center console could have on the car interior of the future.

At Accuride, our wide range of motion hardware means that there will always be a slide to fit your needs. However, all of these options can often make it hard to know exactly where to start your search
This wide-ranging stock of products also includes both self-close and easy-close, (or sometimes referred to as ‘soft-close’) slides, both of which are ideal for applications where drawers must be properly closed, and stay closed until they are purposefully reopened. But what are the differences between these two slides? And which one is right for your requirements?
A wide variety of our slides offer a hold-in and hold-out or lock-in and lock-out capability to enhance the safety of customer applications, as well as accessibility and security.

Part extension slides are designed with 2 rail members and can extend to 75% of the closed length, whereas full extension slides have 3 rail members and can extend to 100%. This additional extension (or travel) gives the advantage of more access.
We presume that you need a full extension slide so that you have full access to the drawer. Both the 5321 and 9300 series slides are sold in long lengths. We also stock some very heavy duty aluminium slides, but we feel that these may be too large for this type of project.
We think that this is really cool; they obviously like our products well enough to bring them into their own homes. This is a pretty good endorsement for Accuride drawer slides.
