Three Classfications of Aluminum Slide Rails

  • Date:2022/02/22

When it comes to slide rails, the first thing that comes to our mind is the hardware used in the current mainstream whole house custom decoration. Do you know what slides are on the market ? What kind of slide rail you use can determine the grade of your furniture. Slide rails are also called guide rails, slideways, and rails. It refers to the hardware connecting parts fixed on the cabinet body of the furniture and allowing the drawers or cabinet boards of the furniture to move in and out. The slide rail is suitable for drawer connection of wooden or steel drawer furniture such as cabinets, furniture, document cabinets, bathroom cabinets, etc.


Classification of slide rails:
Slide rails are currently divided into roller type, steel ball type and hidden type. Roller slides are the first generation of silent slides. They are composed of one pulley and two rails, but they have poor bearing capacity and do not have the functions of buffering and rebounding. They are often used in computer keyboard drawers and light drawers. It is currently being phased out due to its prominent flaws.

Steel ball slide rail : At present, it is basically a metal slide rail divided into two sections and three sections. The installation is relatively simple. The more common structure is to install on the side of the drawer, which saves space. Steel ball slides are gradually replacing roller slides, becoming the main force of modern furniture slides, and the usage rate is also the most popular. At present, the steel ball slide rails of our kav brandare also divided into ordinary steel ball slide rails (model: DY4501S) according to the needs of the market.



Cushioning off (Model: DY4507S) slide rails and push-rebound function (Model: DY4510S) slide rails, available in black and zinc. The damper and the rebounder may be patented, and they are all produced by special open molds, which can ensure that the sliding rails are pushed and pulled smoothly, and the bearing capacity is large, reaching 30 kg.

In addition, according to customer needs, our FGVSLIDE brand can also customize heavy- duty slide rails with a load-bearing capacity of 90kg (model: DY5301S) – 225kg (model: DY7601S) , covering most industrial applications, and the travel position can be customized according to design needs, used in machinery, automobiles , cabinets, ATM and other fields.

Hidden slide rails, including two-section and three-section hidden (drag bottom) slide rails , horse-drawn slide rails and other types, belong to the middle and high-end slide rails, and use the gear structure to make the slide rails very smooth and synchronized. The rail also has the function of buffering off or pressing the rebound to open. It is mostly used on medium and high-end furniture. Because the price is relatively expensive and it is relatively rare in modern furniture, it is not as popular as steel ball slide rails. However, with the improvement of living standards and the pursuit of quality of life , this type of slide is the future development trend. At present, more and more whole-house custom brands use our kav brand hidden rails, the load-bearing capacity of the two-section hidden rail reaches 25 kg, and the load-bearing capacity of the three-section hidden rail reaches 30 kg.


In addition to the above three types of slide rails, our FGVSLIDE brand has launched the latest  drawer slide rails . This slide rail is used with KAV electric boosters. It is easy to install and use, just pull the handle or lightly The drawer can be automatically opened by touch panel or induction remote control. It can be remotely controlled at a distance of 3 meters, and the thrust can be adjusted. It can be linked with multiple machines, providing 24V1A safe voltage and current. In addition, the FGVSLIDE electric booster also has a variety of applications, and can be used with pull baskets, trash cans, steel ball rails, hidden rails, and horse riding pumps.
