Fixing Positions For Drawer Slides
The location of the drawer slide once affixed. Generally, if the slide is a ball bearing slide then it will attach to the side of the drawer, however, if the slide is a bottom fixed roller then naturally they will be attached to the bottom of the drawer. All our slides have multiple holes for easy fitting depending on the size of the carcass.
One important factor to consider when installing ball bearing drawer slides is the locations of the slides when fixed to the drawer unit. If this is done incorrectly then the load rating will not be preserved or worse the application will fail.
