The grease used is food grade lubricant. This is not harmful to health if applied as directed, has no taste or smell and is suitable for use where contact with food products is unavoidable. In addition, the grease does not include any volatile organic compounds.
Accuride salt spray per ASTM B117; ASTM B633

Minimum operating range of -20 degrees C to 110 degrees C.
Accuride slides are designed to be used for extended periods in temperatures between -17ºC and 70ºC.
Extreme temperatures can affect the lubricant and plastic or rubber components.
Yes, you could lose up to 75% of the slide's load capacity - but we always recommend that you test the slide in the intended application.
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.
Accuride offers a 'Limited Lifetime Guarantee'; please refer to your Quick Ship catalogue or to Accuride direct for details.
No, this is the month and year of manufacture. All Accuride slides have this stamped at the factory to pin point the slides' birthday. For example, 11 03 - this tells me the slide was born in November, 2003. This allows you to accurately date the slide. Once the slide itself has been identified we can even pin point the factory the slide was manufactured in.
We need to take a few measurements with a Vernier or, for rough purposes, a steel rule:
If all else fails contact Accuride's Technical support dept, who will be happy to help.
You're in the right place.
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.
None, the ball retainer simply holds the ball bearings in the optimum position.
The part number may be an Accuride America part number. Email: email@example.com and we will give you an equivalent European part number.
Email or call our Technical Support Manager. We are more than happy to talk you through the application and provide more data as applicable.

The hole pattern tables for the DZ5321 & DZ5321EC slides have changed in the way we present the data. New holes have been added to the middle of the slides and the dimensions have been re-ordered to present them more clearly. No existing holes have been moved or deleted. The additional holes now allow accessory platform brackets (DZ635xx - sold as separate kits) to be used on all lengths of DZ5321 and DZ5321EC slides

DZ5321-0070EC-A 1 hole added to the IM at pitch dimension of 512mm
DZ5321-0080EC-A 1 hole added to the IM at pitch dimension of 416mm
Accuride slides have self-cleaning ball retainers that protect the raceways by removing the foreign particles between the ball bearings. However, there are times when particles get stuck in the ball track.
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.
There are three basic types of disconnect. Download the PDFs:
For the large remote control.......... Battery type A23S
For the small key fob remote control.........Battery type 27A
This is the maximum load that a pair of slides can carry, but only IF you mount them as instructed and don’t exceed their cycle rating.

Our standard range of mild steel ball bearing slides with plastic components are designed to be used for extended periods in a temperature range between -20°C and 70°C.
The only pre-selected height is at the fully open position. You can stop the lift at any point by using the remote control STOP button, but you will have to do this each time you use the lift.
Yes, but for shorter doors we have other options that are more economic.
Slide ordering prefixes are:
-- DZ – electro zinc plate and blue passivate
-- DB – electro zinc plate and black passivate
-- DW – white
-- DH – corrosion resistant (up to 96 hours)
-- DS – stainless steel
-- DA – aluminium
-- DP – corrosion resistant (up to 500 hours)
The 5343 interlock slide works best in applications up to 5 drawers high.
We found that the connecting bars need to be precise in length to ensure that the system works, especially on more that 5 drawers. Otherwise, there can be a tolerance build-up causing problems with the mechanism opening.
However, it is possible to use this system with more than five drawers by cutting the connecting rods to fit between the slides using a dimensional tolerance of +/-0.1mm or better.
• For 1-5 drawers, ± 0.25mm
• For 6-8 drawers, ± 0.1mm
