How To Distinguish The Quality Of Drawer Slides

- Aug 25, 2020-

Sliding rails are one of the important accessories in cabinet hardware. The importance is second only to hinges. The status and ratio of sliding rails used by cabinet companies are similar to hinges. About 75% of cabinet companies use low-priced and poor-quality sliding rails. In comparison, the advantages and disadvantages are not distinguished from the appearance and the way of use. The main difference lies in the differences caused by the differences in materials, principles, structures, equipment, and production processes. Let me teach you a few simple methods to distinguish the quality of drawer slides:


1.Load-bearing capacity 

The quality of the slide rail directly affects the load-bearing capacity of the drawer. You can check the load-bearing capacity of the drawer yourself by the following methods: fully pull the drawer out, press the outer edge of the front of the drawer with your hand, and observe the forward inclination of the drawer from the side. The smaller the forward inclination, the stronger the load-bearing capacity of the drawer.


2. Internal structure   

The inside of the slide rail is its bearing structure, which is directly related to its load-bearing capacity. At present, there are both steel ball slides and silicon wheel slides on the market. The steel ball slide rail automatically removes the dust and dirt on the slide rail through the rolling of the steel ball, so as to ensure the cleanliness of the slide rail, and the sliding function will not be affected by the dirt entering the interior. At the same time, the steel ball can spread the force around, ensuring the horizontal and vertical stability of the drawer.
