Established in 1988, Sliding Systems specializes in manufacturing specialty slides that are rare in the market. Different from common furniture slides, specialty slides have great rigidity and are outstanding at bearing large weights, and are capable of...
Professional Range – Steel C45
These high strength steel slides have been designed to work under conditions of extreme shock and vibration, particularly applications of under slung battery boxes on trains and heavy drawers on specialist vehicles. The DTS range has the tried and tested 'I' beam format where strength and rigidity is required with minimal slide deflection. This method of manufacture is far superior to other processes where slides are made from rolled or drawn 'C' sections which are liable to failure on extreme applications.
As an industry first, Sliding Systems can now supply advanced FEA analysis reports for all products within the Professional Range. This will enable the design engineer to accurately calculate peak loading, deflection and operating forces within their bespoke projects.
There are four extension options available with this range of slides:
The Professional Range is available in a number of formats which offer extensions from 50% through to 100% and even 200% of the slide's closed length. We offer bi-directional extension as standard.
Our slides are tested to destruction and we confidently work up to 2,000kg with the largest profiles. Load calculations are based upon 1% deflection of the slide's closed length when fully loaded per extended pair. This rises to approximately 2% on our 150 and 200% extensions due to the multiple beams. Our slides are load tested spaced 700mm apart.The entire range is manufactured from high grade steel type C45 E+C which ensures a slide with strong raceways, fit for the industrial purpose they were designed.
Steel beams are plated with industry standard zinc and passivate 10-12 microns surface protection. Plating is RoHS compliant. Standard ball bearings are chrome plated steel with an option to upgrade to stainless steel 304 or 316. This suits applications such as train battery boxes where solid section stainless steel slides are beyond budget.
Our Front Handle Locking System has been developed to work with the Professional Range as a positive, rugged means of securing the drawer. No more finger catching or long lead times having slides manufactured. The system can be supplied to lock the drawer in, out or both.

Prices are per single slide. Loadings are given per extended pair. There are two slides per pair.
DTS40, 50 & 60 slides are usually available on a same working day dispatch, supported by high levels of stock. Please allow 4-5 weeks manufacture for all other slides in this range.
