The SOWS-40 telescopic slide is manufactured from marine grade 316L (1.4404) stainless steel (inox) offering a very high corrosion resistance. The austenitic structure of 316L stainless gives excellent toughness, even at cryogenic temperatures. The beams are polished to a bright finish on all surface areas as standard.
The SOWS-40 is particularly suited for highly corrosive applications with prolonged exposure to the elements. Having a compact 40mm profile, this makes it an excellent choice for heavy duty marine seating or military/emergency truck drawers which operate in wet conditions.
This is an extreme load/duty partial extension telescopic slide (120Kg–250Kg/pair) suitable for a wide range of applications. At 550mm, with 275mm travel, a uniformly loaded pair has a capacity of 250Kg.
Constructed from milled stainless steel sections, with machined ball tracks for accuracy, it has excellent levels of shock and vibration resistance. Accordingly the product is well suited to supporting marine seating/hatches and food grade machine guards. The beams and ball bearings are manufactured from austenitic grade 316L. End stop bolts are grade 304 with cages made from ferritic grade 430 stainless, for complete corrosion protection.
This slide is robust to applied loads when in the extended position making it an excellent choice for dynamic applications, unlike many other slides manufactured from rolled steel 'C' sections. There are no plastic parts in the manufacture of this range, making it ideal for high temperature use.
The SOWS-40 drawer slide may also be used in its minor axis but the load capacity will be reduced to 60% of stated load stated for us in major axis. It can be supplied with a 70% extension, which will not reduce the load capacity. Please ask consult our sales engineers for this no cost option. The SOWST version of this slide is fitted for an extension front and rear, equal to the closed length. For purchase, at no extra charge, please tick the SOWST box at point of purchase.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for manufacture, unless subscribed to our stock holding programme which facilitates next day supply.
