The 5 most important measurements for your drawer and pocket door applications

At Accuride, our wide range of motion hardware means that there will always be a slide to fit your needs. However, all of these options can often make it hard to know exactly where to start your search. To help you pick the best telescopic slide for your application there are five initial measurements you must first consider. The right slide measurements will not only narrow your search down, but it will also help you avoid inaccuracies during installation and in some cases increase your chances of avoiding common installation problems like drawer racking .

Your drawer slide measurement checklist 1. How much weight will the slide need to hold? When calculating the load rating it is important to include both the weight of the drawer and its contents.

Our slides can be either flat or side mounted, but remember that when flat mounting your slide, the load rating will be reduced to approximately 25% of the original slide load rating. (Refer to the product data sheet, as not all slides are suitable for flat mounting)
