A sideways tilt fridge slide is suitable for Utes and 4WD pickups with back or side entry canopies. If you have a tailgate on the back however, the fridge needs to be positioned on top of a cargo drawer with enough height to allow the slide to tilt down to its full extension (most people use tilt slides because they position them on top of cargo drawers, but it’s still worth mentioning the potential problems with tailgates).
The tilt function is designed for fridges that are too high to access easily, pivoting it forwards and down so that you can see inside. Available in 50L and under, 60L and over, 80L and over, and 95L and over, we can also custom make them to any size. Dunn & Watson sideways tilt fridge slides are available in the following sizes:
- 50L and under: 675mm W x 395mm L
- v60L and over: 805 W x 525mm L
- 80L and over: 905 W x 525mm L
- 95L and over: 950mm W x 550mm L
The 50L and under and the 60L and over sideways fridge slides are made from 3mm aluminium, whilst the 80L and over and the 95L and over are constructed from 4mm aluminium. These are lightweight units, so you shouldn’t have any problems with your vehicle’s GVM (always check your vehicle’s GVM to ensure that you don’t overload your vehicle).
All of these sideways tilt slides operate using a 227kg locking drawer slide that secures the fridge in both the fully closed and fully tilted positions to prevent the fridge slide from opening or closing in transit. They also come with the Dunn & Watson gas struts to make it easy to operate the tilt function. These sideways tilt fridge slides are suitable for the vast majority of fridge/freezer brands, including Waeco, Engel and Evakool. All Dunn & Watson sideways tilt fridge slides are made in Australia.
