The SDTS 'I' beam profile is particularly suited for highly corrosive applications with prolonged exposure to the elements. Having a compact profiles, this makes them an excellent choice for undercarriage train battery rafts in hostile conditions, marine/offshore or military vehicles working in sub-zero climates. Constructed from milled stainless steel sections, with machined ball tracks for accuracy, the slides have excellent levels of shock and vibration resistance. Accordingly the product is well suited to supporting generators and heavy machine guards, even with an over extension of 120%. The beams and ball bearings are manufactured from austenitic grade 316L. End stop bolts are grade 304 with cages made from ferritic grade 430 stainless, for complete corrosion protection.
Due to the extreme strength of the mobile 'I' beam, these slides are robust to applied loads when in the extended position making them an excellent choice for dynamic applications, unlike many other slides manufactured from weaker rolled steel 'C' sections. There are no plastic parts in the manufacture of this range, making it ideal for high and low temperature use. The SDTSB version of this slide is fitted for an extension front and rear, equal to the closed length. Please ask our engineers for further information.
All Professional Range slides are fitted with internal end stops to retain the beams when in the closed and fully extended positions. There are heavy duty end bolts to secure the slides when stowed and solid stainless steel pins which locate at the rear bearing within the cages to prevent the beams detaching. Our end bolts/pins are tested to support the stated loads at operational speeds below 0.3m/s.
Prices are per single slide. Loadings are given per extended pair. There are two slides per pair. The stainless steel slides are manufactured to order, please allow 4-5 weeks for delivery or can be stocked for immediate call off against scheduled orders.
