Q1 How do I choose the correct drawer slide extension?

 

  • 75% extension: Drawer opens approximately 75% of the total length of the slide.
    Use 75% extension if space is limited within and around the cabinet.
  • 100% extension: Drawer opens the same amount as the slide length, ideal when full access is required.
  • 100+% extension: Over-travel is achieved. The drawer opens in excess of the slide length.
    This is ideal where access is required at the rear of the drawer and to also accommodate the thickness of the drawer front.
  • Most full (100%) extension slides have nominal over-travel.
  • Two-way travel allows the drawers to open from both sides of the unit.
  • Linear motion slides move in a straight line and within the slide’s own length.

Q2 What does 80,000 Cycle tests refer to?

 

This refers to the cycle at which a slide is tested in an application or drawer, one cycle = 1 complete open and close.
All Accuride Drawer Slides undergo cycle tests according to the expected frequency of use. See individual slides for details on the cycle test rating.

Q3 Drawer slides are rated by load, what does this mean?

Q7 How do I identify an Accuride Drawer Slide when I don’t know the part number?

 

You will need to answer a few questions.

  1. What is the height of the slide?
  2. What is the thickness of the slide when fully closed?
  3. What is the length of the cabinet member when it is fully closed, plus the extension – 75% or 100% of travel?
  4. Does the slide have any special features? For example hold-in, hold-out or front disconnect. Here is a list of all Accuride features.

Send these answers to our sales team, along with a picture of the drawer slide and we identify the slide for you.

You can also use our Fast Find to identify your drawer slide by feature, extensions and finish.

Q12 Can I use 9301 and 9308 together?

 

Yes, these Accuride Drawer Slides can be used together. 9308 and 9301E are heavy duty slides with exactly the same characteristics, but 9308 has a lock in/lock out feature. This means the module can only be opened when the lever is released. Combining these slides makes secure access easier, since the lever is only on one side. It will also save you money. We sell them singly so you can buy one of each for a cost effective solution.
