4005.7055 (Telescopic Slide) - 7055 (315-387kg) ULTIO 120% Steel Beams. Stainless Balls & Cages
The 7055 slide is part of the new ULTIO range, designed for enhanced corrosion protection, particularly the rigorous demands for emergency vehicles. ULTIO slides are manufactured from high quality zinc plated C45 steel sections: Cold drawn inner beams with a rolled steel outer beam to allow a narrow space profile, demanded by fire truck manufacturers. Stainless steel grade 304 bearings and cages increase corrosion resistance, without compromising load or torsional rigidity.
The grade of steel profile is important in achieving accurate, strong ball races, which allow a slight pre-load without lateral play between the beams. This quality of movement is usually associated with high end hardened steel slides at substantially higher price points. Load rating at 600mm at full extension is 387kg per over-extended pair, with huge safety margins to allow for vehicular shock & vibration.
The 7055 slide is identical to the 7050 except with an over extension of 120%. This is a special feature designed to completely extract pump and generator carriers from emergency vehicles and facilitate a four-man lift. All fixing points and beams remain as per the 7050, there is a reduction in the ball cage length to accommodate the extra travel.
