4005.7040 (Telescopic Slide) - 7040 (100-250kg) ULTIO 150% Steel Beams. Stainless Balls & Cages

The 7040 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 250kg per over-extended pair, with huge safety margins to allow for vehicular shock & vibration.

The 7040 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 250kg per extended pair, with a huge safety margins to allow for vehicular shock & vibration.

This slide is designed to extend 150% of the closed length, so the drawer completely leaves the fabrication and access can be made at the rear without over reaching. without lateral play between the beams. Ultio 7040 weighs 9.5kg per metre. Applications for this super extension slide are fire truck light portable pumps/generators, weapon handling, light rail battery rafts, robotics and rugged tool boxes on excavators.

The 7040 slide is tested at 10,000 operational cycles, with the slides spaced 1000mm apart. At 550mm length, with full extension and SWL loading of 255kg, the slides deflect 24mm. Deflection is the measurement of drop taken at the full extension of the slides and influences the ease of operational forces to close and open the drawer. Four beam 150% extension slides deflect approx 4% of their closed length under maximum loading due to the multiple beams; much less for part load. At this maximum load capacity the operational forces are still less than 5kg to open and close. During testing, the drawer was stable without any side load movement or damage to the  raceways, due to the high grade of steel used in the construction of the beams.

The 7040 slide can be purchased online, for global delivery, by clicking this link to our web-shop. The 7040 is stocked across all key lengths up to 700mm. The newly launched XTSR-80 150% travel slide in the Professional Range covers all  lengths (and bespoke) from 300 to 1,600mm on fast production lead-times.

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.


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.


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.

Arredamento e architettura

We are delighted to be able to advise our customers on the most diverse projects possible.

One day we could be talking to an ambitious DIY customer who wants to install a removable console tray in his game room and the next project could be a whole building interior refurbishment destined for micro flats. Whilst each project represents different challenges and requirements we are confident in finding a suitable slide or linear rail.

Standard furniture fittings will suit the Thomas Regout or Fulterer range of rolled steel slides and linear rail. Whereas high end architectural furniture design may call for aluminium drawer slides, such as the 8027/8028 or the aluminium T6 slide from our professional range.

To suit yacht interior design, we can supply Viadana chandlery and stainless steel 316L telescopic slides.

Costruttori macchine

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.


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.

Food Truck - Mobile Catering

Whether you have a full side trailer extension to build or a small pull out coffee machine tray from the back of a Vespa Ape, we have the right slide for you. From specialised mobile military deployment catering units to market trader applications, we have the knowledge to make it happen.

We are a privately-owned company, established over 30 years and our slides and tool mounts cover every possible application within the catering and hospitality industry.

Our speciality are bespoke telescopic slides suited to catering trailers and full van conversions.

If you require a light load slide we suggest using our standard rolled steel slides covered in this section, for larger full vehicle conversions up to 2000kg we recommend our cold drawn steel section I beam heavy duty slides. The rigidity and strength of the material used in the manufacture, without use of plastic components, make the slides appropriate for heavy duty usage which demand resistance to shock and vibration.

In addition to telescopic slides project we supply auxiliary equipment to fix pipes or other tools.

Le nostre Fulterer range of slides comply with NSF food grade specifications to allow for installation of our drawer slide in direct contact with food.

From heavy duty under-train battery rafts to high-repeat door systems and, increasingly, sliding seat systems, Sliding Systems has products that suit all of these applications

Battery Rafts

Heavy duty specialist slide components for mounting under-train battery rafts. The slides must, like the carriage as a whole, comply with crash testing criteria and, as high speed trains become ever more prevalent, there is an increasing requirement that the slides are able to hold heavy battery sets in position despite large dynamic loads.

Battery bays can also house a corrosive atmosphere over long periods, and therefore careful specification of corrosion resistant finishes are required. The nitration option available onour relevant product range provides this resistance as well as considerably strengthening the surface structure of the slide itself.

To facilitate ease of fitting and maintenance, GSF is able to design bespoke fitting brackets including, for example, positioning pins.

Despite improvements to train suspensions, running with metal wheels on metal tracks also makes vibration and shock relevant issues to consider in slide design. Finally, as battery rafts constitute one of the heaviest loads typically mounted on slides, careful consideration is required to the consequent force required to push-in or pull-out the battery raft and the strength and shock-reduction characteristics of the end stops. These are all critical factors that should direct the slide specification.


The use of telescopic slides or linear rails to mount train doors requires a product able to deal with both the dynamic loads and crash survival criteria that are inevitably relevant to train-based applications. In addition the components have to operate reliably and with low maintenance requirements over a very high number of repetitions. Doors on underground trains are required typically to open and close up to 20 times an hour day after day over the working life of the carriage.

To withstand such a high level of repetitions, the ball bearings and the associated ball track tracks need to be hardened to resist pitting and corrosion. Cold drawn steel slides also perform better over time, as the slide profile is less prone to long term profile deformation than is the case for cold rolled profiles.


Train operators are increasingly offering adjustable seating in first class passenger compartments. Simplicity and durability are key determinants of which linear rail and slide components will work successfully in ensuring that the seat operates reliably as intended and without a requirement for maintenance activity.
