Mounting Accuride Drawer Slides for Maximum Performance and Efficiency

Mounting Accuride Drawer Slides for Maximum Performance and Efficiency
20/09/2019

When installing and mounting our drawer slides, whether in a simple desk drawer or complex storage system, accuracy and precision are key to getting the best out of your product. Through multiple rounds of rigorous testing, we have found the optimum position to ensure the maximum performance and efficiency of our drawer slides to keep them working to the first-class standard we’re known for.

Vertical mounting or horizontal mounting Here at Accuride, we have slides suitable for both vertical and horizontal mounting. Vertical mounting (also known as side mounting) refers to when the drawer slide is installed at the side of the unit, while horizontal (or flat) mounting involves the slide is fitted to the base of the drawer unit.

While most slides are designed to be vertically mounted, some slides can be horizontally mounted beneath the unit, for example for linear slides such as the 0116RC and 0115RC can be installed in this position. A slide’s suitability for flat mounting is dependent on its load-bearing capabilities, due to its load rating decreasing to approximately 25% in this position compared to when it is side-mounted. For example, if a slide has a load rating of 60kg, this will be reduced to 15kg when flat mounted.
