    Default Drawer Slider Length

    Hi all, I have been looking at drawer sliders online. I have contacted the seller but no reply so far. I wanted to know whether the length indicated ie 1000 mm is the length of the slider when extended or if the slider extends 1000 mm outwards from folded ie the drawer moves a full 1000 mm. So if the initial,folded length is 450 mm will the slider end up with a final total length of 1000 mm or 1450 mm ?

    Advertised length is closed slide length. The slide generally opens to 180-190% of advertised slide length. So if you buy a 1000mm slide, it opens out to around 1800/1900mm depending on slide manufacturer.

    They normally are advertised at closed length so a 1000mm slide will be almost double that when extended. However, I've been looking at Takealot's slides and what they call a 1.9m slide must be at the extended length if I look at the package size.

    Material: Cold Rolled Steel
    Color: Silver
    Maximum Load Capacity: 110kg
    Size: 180cm x 5.3cm x 1.9cm
    Package Size: 95cm x 12cm x 2cm
    Weight: 5.6kg

    When I built my drawer system, I used the Furnlock 9330 Super Heavy Duty sliders, length 1016 mm.
    I worked off the drawings they supplied me.

    The drawing below was also supplied by Furnlock and should give you an idea of the 7330 heavy duty slider dimensions.
    Closed 1000 mm open 1999 mm.

    Thanks, that's perfect. I had found repon slides at 4x4direct. I need 650 extension on the fridge and 1070 on my crates so probably 1000 mm sliders all round.

    It's a bit late to the party but consider Gelmar, they have a 600mm slide rated for 45kgs. The cost trade off makes this an attractive consideration.
