SPECIAL FEATURES

Accuride offer a host of integrated special features that are designed to improve the design, functionality and efficiency of your final application.

TOUCH RELEASE

Touch release holds drawers in a closed position until pressure is applied to the front of the slide, leading to its alternate name, ‘push to release’. A spring mechanism is actuated when drawer front is depressed by 1/16” and the drawer is subsequently propelled forward approximately 2”.

EASY-CLOSE/SOFT-CLOSE

Easy-closure, also known as soft-closure, slows the closing action of the slide for a controlled, smooth operation. Our patented feature helps to prevent damage occurring to the slide, the drawer or the contents by preventing a sharp sudden closure.

SELF-CLOSE

Self-close slides feature a spring attachment that prevents bounce-back when the slide is closed and also keeps the slide in the closed position until it is next in use.

DETENT-IN/DETENT-OUT

Slides with a hold out function feature a detent that secures the slide in an open position until additional force is applied to overcome the detent.

LOCK-IN/LOCK-OUT

Lock-in slides keep drawers, trays and panels secured in a closed position until released by a lever. Lock-out slides keep drawers, panels, trays and other pull-out surfaces secured in an extended position until released by a lever. This feature has been used in various applications.

HOLD-IN

Slides that have a hold-in function feature a detent that secures the slide in a closed position until additional force is applied to overcome the detent.

FAQs

What is the operating temperature range for the aluminium DA5321?

The operating temperature range of our DA5321 aluminium slide is between -30 degrees C and +80 degrees C. Although the DA5321 can accommodate +90 degrees C for short periods. The operating range is determined by the plastic bumpers.

Do ball bearing slides work OK in high temperatures?

  • Accuride slides with plastic or rubber components are designed to be used for extended periods in temperatures between -20° and 70°C
  • Accuride slides without plastic or rubber components can be used in temperatures between -20° and 110°C
  • Accuride slides with soft-close dampers can be used in temperatures between 10° and 40°C
  • Extreme temperatures can affect the lubricant and plastic or rubber components
  • The DS3031 slide has been designed to withstand temperatures up to 300°C
  • DFG friction slides have been designed to withstand temperatures between -40 and +90°C.

The minimum door height for the 1432 pocket door slide is given as 915mm. Can I use it on a shorter door?

Yes, but for shorter doors we have other options that are more economic

What is the optimum slide length and drawer width dimension to achieve the maximum load rate for my chosen slide type?

A slide, correctly fixed using all fixing holes, with an evenly loaded drawer, 450mm wide, will give the optimum weight load performance. See the individual datasheets for maximum load rating for each length of slide

What 'safety factor' is built into the slides?

Based on a pair of slides in the fully open position mounted vertically on the sides of the cabinet, 450mm apart, Accuride specify a 100% safety factor in the static position. So a slide rated at 45kg will take up to 90kg in the above position. It is not wise or safe to cycle slides above their tested and specified load rating as premature failure could occur.
