ST508 - almost half the price of the old ST509

ST508 - almost half the price of the old ST509

Another product to be launched by Chambrelan this year is the ST508.  The ST508 is a solid stainless steel slide, having evolved from the older ST509.  By using the latest manufacturing technologies to produce the stainless steel section, the overall production costs have been massively reduced resulting in the pricing of this product, being halved without compromising the strength, long life and quality expected from a Chambrelan slide.

As a result the use of a specialised stainless steel slide has become a much more affordable option when looking for the ideal slide solution within more unique and demanding applications.

Another new addition to the ST508 is the final surface treatment, the sections are bathed in a unique wash, which gives the slides an even matt finish.  It’s got to look good as well, right?

Chambrelan Product Review : RA9R

New Slide Development by Chambrelan - The RA9R

New Slide Development by Chambrelan - The RA9R

Chambrelan are delighted to introduce a brand new heavy-duty slide which has been in development for sometime.  The RA9R is a three beam nested slide and aims to bridge the gap for vehicle builders needing the extra-load capacity, but struggle to provide sufficient space envelope for an E1700.

The RA9 therefore sits directly in between the popular RA7R and the E1700, a 3 section I-beam constructed slide which gives it its exceptional strength.  E.g. an E1700 of 1000mm will support 430kilos per pair, with a 1% deflection figure and the RA7R, at the same length, will carry 230kilos per pair, with the same deflection.  The RA9R has been designed to carry similar loads, whilst offering a reduced width in profile.

Made from carbon steel and using Chambrelan’s high performance Zinc coating, which gives added corrosion protection and strength.  Sadly this is just a sneak preview and manufacturing will begin very shortly.  We’ll keep you updated.

However we’re already working with clients by reconfiguring the RA9R for their specific builds and we’re always here to help, should you need any further advice on how the RA9R can offer the right strength and fit.
