Several Considerations for the Purchase of Slide Rails

Sep. 24, 2019

Slide rails are common accessories for furniture hardware, especially as cabinet furniture hardware. Whether the large and small, various drawers can be pushed and pulled freely and smoothly, all depends on the support of the slide rails.

As far as the current rails on the market are concerned, the bottom rail performance is better than the Side Installation Drawer Slide, and the overall connection with the drawer is better than the three-point connection. The quality of the entire slide rail is generally determined by the material, principle, structure, and process of the slide rail. The high-quality China Drawer Slide has low resistance, long life, and smooth drawers.

Modern people are increasingly demanding all aspects of furniture such as cabinets. People always want cabinets to accommodate more space, so the design of drawers is crucial. However, the most easily lost drawer is not itself, but the rails.

Next, Ball Bearing Slide Manufacturer teaches you a few simple little ways to choose high-quality slides:

1. Bearing capacity

The load-bearing capacity of the drawer is completely dependent on the quality of the rails. The load-bearing capacity of the drawer can be detected by the following method: Pull the drawer completely out, press the outer edge of the front side of the drawer by hand, and observe the forward tilt of the drawer from the side. The smaller the forward tilt, the stronger the load-bearing capacity of the drawer.

2. Drawer material

The steel drawers are dark silver in color and have a fine texture, and the steel drawer side panels are thicker than aluminum drawers. The powdered steel drawer is lighter in color than the steel drawer and is light silver grey. It is thinner than steel drawers but thicker than aluminum drawers.

3. Internal structure

Inside the slide rail is its bearing structure, which is also directly related to its load-bearing capacity. There are both steel ball slides and silicon wheel slides on the market. The steel ball slide rails automatically remove the dust and dirt on the slide rails by rolling the steel balls, thereby ensuring the cleanliness of the slide rails and not affecting the sliding function due to the dirt entering the interior. At the same time, the steel ball can spread the force around, ensuring the stability of the drawer horizontally and vertically.
