4073.BIHAND (Bi-Directional) – Bi-Directional HD Handle Lock In & Out - Black / Yellow

Sliding Systems' Non-Corrosive, Heavy Duty Front Locking Handle is extensively used on fire truck and special vehicle drawers (straight slide out and slide and tilt). The double D handle and push button locking mechanism is located at the centre of the drawer front in order to ensure the operator's gloved hands are kept well away from pinch risks.

Sliding Systems' Non-Corrosive, Heavy Duty Front Locking Handle is extensively used on fire truck and special vehicle drawers (straight slide out and slide and tilt). The double D handle and push button locking mechanism is located at the centre of the drawer front in order to ensure the operator's gloved hands are kept well away from pinch risks. Rated to 500kg, this is an efficient locking system.

The Bi-Directional version of this locking handle allows for the locking mechanism and bars, to be fitted to centre of the drawer. Extra components are added, including a 2x 1000mm M10 threaded bar with BZP plating, extra threaded plungers, lock, and mounting blocks. All the kit needed to modify to a fully functioning Bi-Directional locking system.

The strong aluminium handle enables the operator to exert full control over the movement of what is likely to be a heavy drawer, both when opening and closing, and the locking mechanism can be installed, so as to provide a slam-shut lock-in functionality, as well as a lock-in and lock-out function. The locking mechanism retracts the spring-loaded locking bolts, which slot into the slam-shut lock blocks.

The handle is manufactured from cast aluminium with a specialist 7200 paint treatment designed for aerospace. The rods are supplied drilled and chamfered in 304 stainless steel. The plunger release is milled aluminium for weight reduction and strength. The housing is strong aluminium channel (not plastic!) and the internal components are moulded from strong GRP. The handle is supplied as a complete assembly, not in kit form. We own all the tooling for our handles.

The unit is generally supplied without an aluminium drawer front, and at standard widths of 540, 1040, 1540 and 2040mm. The user would then cut the locking bolts to their own desired width, although the system can be supplied with the locking bolts pre-cut to the user's specified length. HANDLE NOW AVAILABLE IN YELLOW FROM STOCK.

The drawer front is not supplied. The Heavy Duty Front Locks are available ex stock. Volume OEM prices available on request.

Fire

Equipment stowage components and systems as installed on fire engines

Slide Drawers

Solid section steel slides lengths from 300mm to 2,000mm for pull-out equipment drawers. Extensions from 50% to 150% of closed length can be supplied, in addition slide systems that offer sequential dual extension with bi-directional travel allowing the drawer to extened from either side of the vehicle. This enables rescue crews to access vital equipment quickly and safely, regardless of the vehicle's orientation to the emergency scene.

Systems

Our range of reinforced heavy duty steel slides fitted with additional ball tracks and reinforceing ball bearings are ideally suited for use in some of the more unique applications. Together with a range of slides designed using a rigid "I" beam construction our products offer execelent performance under conditions that may exert high direct and tortional loadings as experienced in such applications as pull-out equipment boards and vertical shelves.

Trays

Following extensive testing on selected models our slides are used by the U.K.'s leading producers of complete equipment carriers. These complete tray systems are ready for quick installation, including bespoke mountings for specialist equipment such as auxilliary pumps, tools, hoses and rescue equipment.

Lock-in and lock-out mechanisms facilitate quick and safe operation of the equipment carrier, as well as hold the fully-loaded drawer securely in position when the vehicle is in motion or at the scene.

Machine Building

The design and construction of speciialised operational machinery and machine guards. The excellent range of Saibo hardened linear rails are designed to be economical whilst offering exceptional service life required in machine guarding.

General

Specification and design of linear movement systems incorporating linear rails and telescopic slides for use in machine guarding applications and the design and installation of manufacturing, cargo handling and other situation specific plant and machinery.

In such industrial applications, reliability and robustness are key requirements. When incorporated into automated plant, movement precision is also vital. The load capacities indicated on our high-end range represent the maximum load that can be carried whilst causing a slide deflection at full extension of no more than 1% of the slide's closed length. This is a much higher and more rigorous standard than is typically used by others for measuring slide load capacities, as a results our customers have come to rely on Sliding System's products for their durability and strength.

Our range also includes slides that operate with ultra-high precision based on innovative roller bearing technology, and which are self aligning.

Our design team has the ability to offer all or any of these components when working alongside your own engineering team.

Motor Manufacturing Plant

Telescopic Slide and Linear Rail components for lineside delivery and component handling systems

Automated Production Lines

Linear movement components and telescopic slides for use on repetition-intensive automated production lines. Components require a high resistance to localised wear patterns, uniform operating loads and designs capable of working at fast speeds with high accelerations.

Manually Operated

Linear rail and telescopic slide products for component delivery and handling at line-sideassembly stations.

The breadth of our product range gives you an unparalleled advantage when engineering solutions for delivery systems that have to accommodate large irregular shaped components or sub assemblies within space restricted line-side delivery stillages.

Correct selection and specification of the slide system will ensure maximisation of the space inside the delivery stillage and production efficiency while accommodating the natural variations of manual handling present in a time sensitive assembly environment.

RV & Motorhome

Special & Commercial Vehicles

Our telescopic slides and tool mounts cover even the most demanding project for commercial vehicles. Smaller, lighter duty rolled steel or solid section slides from our General Devices range will suit a keyboard tray or a display screen, whereas cold drawn steel section slides will fit requirements for full vehicle extension such as mobile broadcast vehicles carrying several 1000kg’s.

With over 30 years of experience, we are more experienced than any other supplier and manufacturer to be able to advise of suitable and performing products.

Sliding Systems are an approved supplier for many prestigious and well-regarded manufacturers both in the United Kingdom and abroad.

With our flexible production facilities, we can accommodate any project and are pleased to assist with special requests whenever possible. Applications involving shock and vibration call for heavy duty, cold drawn steel section slides which we are also able to supply in 316L marine grade stainless steel. If weight or corrosion resistance are parameters that are important we suggest Aluminium T6 section slides, available in load capacities up to 330kg.

Outdoor applications can be fixed in place with specialist marine grade 316L hooks, which safely hold tool boxes or vehicle covers in place.

Response Vehicles

Roadside assistance and other categories of vehicle that need to stow and provide easy access to equipment can be enhanced through appropriate use of telescopic drawer slide and linear rail systems.

The twin requirements of operator safety and operational effectiveness are of paramount importance. GSF's ability to select and adapt from an unrivalled base product range, and its ability to assist with the design of bespoke and space-saving drawer systems enable us to make a significant contribution to your own product design.
