3832 Slide Family: Everything You Need To Know
At Accuride, our 3832 family of slides is one of our best-selling ranges; from industrial and medical to transport and retail, we have supplied 3832 slides for use within a variety of industries. Thanks to the versatility of this slide family, with multiple features, finishes and accessories, we have a 3832 slide for almost any requirement.
Our standard DZ3832 and DH3832 are light-duty drawer slides suitable for load-ratings up to 50kg, with full extension to allow for uninhibited access to a drawer’s contents. The DH3832 is a corrosion-resistant slide that provides eight times more protection than a regular zinc finish.
The third member of the 3832 family is DZ3832-DO, another light-duty slide with a load rating of 45-50kg. This particular slide has a hold-out feature that keeps the slide in its open position until it is pushed closed, making it ideally suited for applications in sanitary environments such as laboratories. The DZ3832-EC-B, on the other hand, is a soft-close slide that provides a smooth and controlled closing action for delicate equipment and noise-sensitive locations.
The final two slides in this family are DZ3832-SC and DZ3832-TR. The 3832SC slide is a self-close slide with a load rating of 45-50kg, which uses a spring mechanism to pull the drawer into its fully closed position, and maintains a force of 14-27N per slide to keep it closed.
The DZ3832-TR has a load rating of 45kg and has a touch release feature activated with 22N of force. This eliminates the need for drawer handles, creating a sleek and hygienic design. Both slides also have a heavy-duty counterpart: the DZ3832-HDSC requires an opening and closing force of 27-41N per slide, while DZ3832-HDTR requires an activation force of 35N.
While all of our 3832 slides are suitable for side mounting only, optional brackets are available for the 3832, DZ3832-DO and DZ3823-SC to allow for bottom and platform mounting. In addition to our corrosion resistant option, the 3832 family is available with a classic zinc finish as well as black and white, making them perfect for decorative drawers and retail displays.
All the slides within the 3832 family have a front disconnect, making them easy to install and detach during use if necessary, while our patented cam adjuster allows for precise height adjustment when being mounted. They have a hold-in feature to ensure the drawer stays closed until an additional force is applied, making them safe to use in a number of environments including vehicles and hospitals.
