RA7R Heavy Duty Slide

RA7R Heavy Duty Slide, Full Extension

With a load capacity of up to 350kg per pair and protected by a tough white zinc plate the RA7R heavy duty slide is one of the best performers of Chambrelan’s range of telescopic slides.

Favoured by vehicle builders the RA7R is a three beam heavy duty steel slide employing the use of precision steel ball-bearings which not only makes for a smoother performance, but also adds structural support by spreading the mass of supported loads.

Some years ago Chambrelan upgraded the designs of their heavy duty slide range with the unique inclusion of reinforced bearings that guard against and offer greater resistance to lateral or side loadings.  This upgrade uniquely enables our telescopic slides to be used in both the major or minor axis when the slide beams are compressed against each other by the applied load.

Further upgrades to the RA7R heavy duty slide include the option of sequential movement, which cleverly coordinates the travel of each beam in turn, extending and retracting the slide beams in a set sequence, meaning a reduction in operating forces especially noticeable when the slides are carrying extreme loads.  These sequential heavy duty slides are ideal for manufacturing lines, battery storage boxes and industrial generators that need access for maintenance and repairs.  Indeed the RA7 has been used for small vehicle conversions, tool storage systems and extendable work surfaces.  The RA7 is one of Chambrelan’s most popular slides and subsequently much in vogue with customers who demand a quality performer regardless of the environment or loads.  In this respect the RA7 is considered to be a work horse of a slide, designed and manufactured using the best materials.
