1- Load capacity and longer lengths…

With nearly a hundred types of slides available, our range of sliding systems covers a wide range of requirements up to more than 3300 lb (1500kg) .
Standard closed lengths up to 80 inches (2000mm) with extensions up to nearly 10 feet (3000mm) !

2- Extensions…

Our range of ball bearing telescopic slides is composed of 3 large families of drawer guides with either 2, 3 or 4 beams to respond to all demands of different industrial drawer slides applications. The extension is according to the closed length:

partial extension for a 2 beams slide rail (around 2/3 of the folded length)

full extension for a 3 beams drawer track (100% of the folded length)

over extension for a 4 beams bearing guide (150% of the folded length)

3- Materials…

Drawer tracks are made of 3 main types of material; Chambrelan drawer runners come with a surface treatment depending on the material:

Steel slides, usually zinc plated

Aluminium guides,with colorless anodizing

stainless steel tracks;

4- Options…

Locking devices:

Standard drawer slides come with stoppers.
Some locking drawer slides offer up to 3 different locks:

Lock out (positive lock), that locks the drawer in the extended position.

Lock in, that locks the drawer in the closed position.

Lock in & out…

Slam lock handle can also be considered as a more ergonomic solution.

Double extension slides:

For drawers that need to be reached on each side of the cabinet, a double extension system can be adapted on 2 or 3 beam telescopic drawer slides. DD slam lock handle offers a turnkey solution to this kind of system, to lock the drawer in the centre position.

Detachable sliders;

For maintenance purposes, or for easy install drawers, slides might have to be detached (and reattached for operation).

5- Surface coatings…

Chambrelan drawer runners come with a surface treatment depending on the material. All our treatments are RoHS and REACH compliant.

zinc plated steel for carbon steel telescopic slides for standard application.

anodized aluminium for aluminium drawer slides.

passivation on our stainless steel telescopic slides for corrosive environment or specific applications.

The standard treatments are suitable for the majority of uses. Other or additional treatments (hardness for example) may be performed according to the needs of the application.

6- Mountings…

3 types of mounting for our drawer tracks:

Side mounting drawer sliders:

Sliding rails are designed to be set on the side of the sliding system. When it comes to heavy duty sldies or extra heavy duty sliders, side mounting is necessary.

Bottom mounting extension slides:

For a simplified installation, slides can be used bottom mounted (i.e. under the drawer, as an undermount drawer runner). We suggest to select our reinforced telescopic sliders for bottom mounted drawer slides. It is also possible to use them as centre mount drawer slides depending on the load and the extension.

Vertical mounting gliders (up & down use):

Screens or protection panels can move vertically, either upwards, or downwards. Some standard telescopic slides are recommended for this type of use. Some other rails can be adapted to this type of mounting; Do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

7- Easy to integrate, easy to install…

You can find within our catalogue comprehensive data to allow a good and simple installation: load capacity, length, drilling scheme… Moreover, on this website, you can find our product, including 3D, in every standard CAD format. Go on each product page for further information.

8- Reduced maintenance…

Chambrelan slides have been designed to operate with a minimum maintenance in the most challenging of environments. Only under extreme conditions of use will they require some complementary maintenance.
