Frequently asked questions about drawer slides
Why do you need heavy duty drawer slides?
Heavy duty drawer slides allow you to make the most of your vehicle’s space. This often means that compact spaces in your caravan, ute canopy or four-wheel-drive will incorporate slides that will hold a fridge, stove, barbeque or some other accessory. Due to the nature of camping and four-wheel-driving, and the weight that is required for the slides to hold, it’s important that your slides are heavy duty and durable to be able to cope with the weight.
How much should a drawer slide hold?
Different heavy duty drawer slides hold different amounts and have different weight bearing capacities. It’s important that you consider what you’re planning on putting on your slides and check the weight capacity. As a general rule, standard heavy duty slides can hold roughly 120 kilograms but once again, it really depends on the model, size and make. If you’re not sure what sort of weight capacity your drawer slides need, have a chat with the helpful team here at Dunn and Watson.
How thick should a drawer slide be?
Once again, in a similar vein to the weight a pair of heavy duty drawer slides can hold, when it comes to the thickness of the drawers it does depend. As a rough standard, slides generally are about 1.27 centimetres in thickness. In addition to the thickness of the drawer, consider the material they are made out of. For example, the drawer slides manufactured by Dunn and Watson are all made from the highest quality of materials including high grade aluminium or stainless steel. This gives your heavy duty drawers as much strength and durability as possible.
Are undermount drawer slides better?
There are certainly benefits to using undermount drawer slides in your vehicle fit out. In general, there is less dust and dirt accumulation with undermount slides and spills are often easier to clean up. It’s important to consider the weight bearing capacity of any undermount drawer slides you’re considering to ensure they are compatible with what you need it to do.
