The 8026 Radial Slide is a heavy duty, partial extension telescopic slide (220-300Kg/pair) suitable for a wide range of applications. At 550mm 1 pair has a load capacity of 290Kg with 290mm of travel, making it ideal for mid mounted drawers and trailer stowage. The cross roller bearing system is well suited for use on emergency vehicle drawers where lightweight, corrosion resistant material is often preferred.
Aluminium Radial Slides utilise a unique crossed roller bearing system which makes full length contact within the ball race and eradicates bearing indentation (brinelling) and migration. This is a very rugged slide and, due to the unique roller design, outperforms similar ball bearing based products. The rear stop is fitted with die spring absorbers to cushion and protect when subject to shock loading.
Cross roller bearings are best suited to applications like aircraft seating where offset loads and point contact stresses cause significant indentation in the ball race and subsequent slide failure. However, due to the rigidity of the slides, there is no play in the beams and this allows for deflection free extension. The 8026 slide can be extended to 75% of the closed length with minimal play and slight loss of loading.
The larger profiles can take considerable loading and with the option of up to 130% extension, are rigid enough support emergency truck drawers & pump carriers to 4000N. The benefit also being that the slides offer a considerable weight saving to steel and are non-corrosive. Thus, negating the need to specify expensive, full stainless steel sections. These complement our non-corrosive handles, locks and tilting drawers.
The 8026 Radial Slide is manufactured from 6005a aluminium with the bearing races milled for tolerance. The finish is self-colour anodization, however there are various options. The bearings are hardened steel and chromed rods.
