Accuride Drawer Runners
Choosing Your Drawer Slides
Our Accuride drawer runners are categorised into light duty, medium duty and heavy duty drawer runners. The load ratings span from 11kg in the light duty range all the way up to 600kg in the heavy range. As well as variable load ratings, there are many other features you can select using the filters on each category page. You can filter using the following specifications:
- Load rating
The total weight of the drawer or unit with intended content weight included.
- Slide length
The un-extended length of the sliding unit.
- Slide thickness
The thickness of the sliding unit (this is important to consider as it will encroach on the maximum width of the drawer or panel when standard mounted). You must allow for +0.2 to 0.5mm on top of the slide thickness to allow for smooth operation of the slides.
- Slide extension
This is the percentage of the length of the slide that extends outwards. Metrol offers a range of extensions from 75% to 100%+ with over travel capabilities. It is important to understand slide extension when designing your drawer, as this will impact accessibility if not fully factored in during the design. Conversely, you must select an extension that will maximise the accessibility of your existing drawer or unit.
- Runner height
This is the height of the drawer slides and must be considered in relation to the depth of the drawer or unit that will be attached to the slides.
- Other Specifications
There are many other specifications that can be filtered by in our Accuride slide category pages, including whether you want to buy the slides in pairs or individually. For more information about the technical specifications of each slide, please view the slide information sheet.
You can also select drawer slides based on features such as detent, soft close, lock-in, lock-out, anti-tilt, disconnect, touch release, corrosion resistance, colour and many other options.
