E1904 heavy duty slide

E1904 – Best For Defence

Although our standard range of heavy duty slides are more than enough for most customers, we do get requests for bespoke products.  One of our customers – a defence contractor – recently needed a hybrid slide / linear rail.

Although we can’t disclose the project due the nature of the build, we can say the loads being handled needed to be delivered from the rear of the application by the slide.  Once fully extended the linear rail then completes the cycle by delivering the load to a front position.  Capable of delivering up to 2m when fully extended the only slide fit for the job was the E1904 heavy duty slide, which had its inner beam removed to house the linear rail. In terms of core strength, the E1904 heavy duty slide is a heavy weight contender. As a four beam nested slide made from Zinc plated carbon steel section, this was a perfect option for the project due to its incredible load bearing capacity and ability to give 150% extension even in the harshest of working environments.

With the prototype now complete the project now faces a series of shock and vibration tests designed to simulate the extreme conditions it will have to face. Interestingly our customer is willing to share those figures with us and although we are still waiting for those results, as soon as they come we will happily share those with you.

Having recently showcased our entire range at the DSEI show, more and more defence contractors are choosing stainless steel products over standard finishes.  Partly for the extra strength and extension, but partly because these slides are corrosive resistant, the show has attracted a lot of interest from military builders and suppliers.
