DRAWER SLIDES VIDEOS

For more than 50 years we’ve worked with architects, designers, and specifiers to develop slide solutions that provide movement, positioning, and access in a vast range of applications across a broad spectrum of industries. In doing this we’ve observed and recorded some factors that need to be considered when designing with Accuride slides

MOUNTING

For optimal performance, we recommend you mount slides only as indicated in the provided technical sheet. Although most slides are side mounted, some can be flat mounted under the drawer or moving component, causing a loss in load rating.

SIDE SPACE

It is the amount of space needed between the pullout and the case or cabinet to ensure optimal movement. Drawer width and expected load should always be considered to determine if a higher rated slide is required for the project.

EXTENSION

A general rule when designing with Accuride is to use the maximum length slide allowable in the application to ensure full access to contents. While most slides are full extension, we offer slides with under- and over-travel..

LOAD RATING

The total weight of the unit assembly and its contents that needs to be accounted for in determining what drawer slide will be needed for your application.

DRAWER WIDTH

Whether used for a drawer, door, component, or chassis, the width of the pullout has a significant impact on performance. If a slide does not have the capacity to support the width, side-to-side movement or racking will occur. Excessive racking will cause

TOUCH RELEASE

Just a slight push inward and the slide latch releases, propelling the drawer open 2".

SOFT-CLOSE / EASY-CLOSE

Bring drawers to a smooth, gentle close every time with our patented Easy-Close feature.

SELF CLOSING

Self-Close ensures your application returns to the closed position and remains there until its next use.

DETENT-OUT

The feature holds drawers and pull-out surfaces in an extended position, making it the ideal solution for pull-out work surfaces in residential or commercial environments.

LOCK-IN / LOCK-OUT

Equipped with a front latch release, the lock-in/lock-out is ideal for securing drawers, trays, and panels that in an extended position

LOCK-OUT

Keeps drawers and pull-outs secured in the extended position until released by a lever

What specification do Accuride stainless steel slides conform to?

How do I get replacement parts to repair a slide?

Most replacement parts such as bumpers, plastic rail clips, brackets, and hardware are available through our Technical Support Request. A digital picture of the part may be required for identification. When sending photos please send a JPG file. Zip files cannot be accepted. If available, replacement parts will be mailed. Delivery will take 2-4 weeks.

Note: We will notify you if the parts are obsolete and no longer available.

What fixings do you recommend for Accuride telescopic drawer slides?

How can I mount slides on the bottom of the drawer instead of the sides?

Also known as under mounting or flat mounting. Accuride has specific models designed to be mounted under the drawer (bottom-mounted, under-mounted, or flat-mounted).

We do not recommend flat-mounting slides that are designed to be side mounted because it reduces the load carrying capacity to less than 25% of the side-mount capacity.
