R71 Exceptional Draw Slide

R71 Exceptional Draw Slide

With its impressive footprint the R71 heavy duty slide is best suited for applications that offer restricted space, but require high levels of rigidity and a smooth working operation, even when delivering extreme loads.

This medium to heavy duty two beam telescopic slide is one of our best performing drawer slides.   It performs well in applications where most weaker and cheaper alternatives would struggle, it’s rigidity and reinforced ball bearing construction offers superb levels of operator control in drawer systems that have widths exceeding 1.5m.  Making it a fantastic slide for carrying loads that would exceed normal slide expectations.

The rigidity of the R71 is also vitally important for it ensures an even draw operation with no ‘crabbing’ or ‘lozenging’, which can be a typical and unwanted side effect of operating large draws from an off-centre position.

With its load carrying performance, smooth operation and rigid strength the R71 has been designed for specialist applications, like tool storage, hydraulic pipe storage and large, light weight preformed components. It is also a regular component for defence applications.
