Best Heavy Duty Slides 2014

Dec 15, 2014   //   Product review  //  No Comments

With a swathe of new heavy duty slides and linear rails being launched over the course of 2014 and host of new product developments being planned for launch in 2015 we thought we’d give you the best of 2014.  Interestingly this year has seen an upsurge in the sale of stainless steel slides and linear rails and so being that’s it’s Christmas we thought we’d highlight some of our best selling heavy duty stainless steel telescopic slides: 

ST508 heavy duty slide

ST508 Fully Extended

ST508 heavy duty slide:  Strong load carrying capacity coupled with a new sequential movement, as well as a very competitive price, has meant the ST508 has really caught the imagination of customers and due to its space profile it has become a very popular stainless steel slide for vehicle builders and where food safety is essential.

ST708 heavy duty slide:  A rise in marine and offshore applications has meant the ST708 has been a very popular stainless steel slide.  Made of stainless steel this three beam heavy duty telescopic slide is able to fit in very small spaces and deliver incredible loads, hence why it’s been used on a Sealord 344 to extend the rear of the boat and was used by the leading yacht builders, Pendennis for an onboard fridge application.  Just a couple of stories, which you can find here and here

Stainless Steel Slide

E1708 – Steel Strength and Incredible Extension

The E1708 is a stainless steel version of the E1700, a three sectioned I-beam slide.  I-beam slides are named because they have one central section shaped like a capital I, with two identical opposing outer beams, that move in opposite directions.  This method of construction allows a much greater load bearing capacity, whilst maintaining a modest use available space envelope.   With an I-beam slide the overall width is more useable, meaning you can use a small width whilst maintaining and increasing the load capacity of the slide.

The outside envelope of the slide is always of critical consideration, since space is at a premium, the narrower the slide, the more room you have in the application and this why many vehicle manufacturers, materials handling applications and military projects use this type of slide.

Made of stainless steel this is an incredibly strong and durable stainless steel slide, perfect for food handling, off-shore and marine projects as well as more heavy duty roles that demand an incredible load capacity coupled with an easy to fit and easy to maintain product.  Indeed we have many enquiries for this slide coming from people interested in converting their Sprinter vans or horse boxes.  In this respect the E1708 is a strong performer as it allows retrofitters to slide a working pod in and out of the vehicle with ease.  These pods can be used as living spaces, doubling the space of the interior of the vehicle.  So if you’re looking at retrofitting a horse box or van conversion, get in touch with us and we’ll be able to advise you the exact slide for your build.

New D52 Aluminium Rail Launched Chambrelan

 new aluminium linear rail

New Linear Rail

The new D52 aluminium rail is a close relation to our most popular linear rail, the E53 a cold drawn steel rail made for medium to light duty applications.  The D52 is an aluminium rail, which has been anodised for extra protection, it is our latest light duty rail aimed at the high precision applications.

Designed primarily to take the B53 carrier the D52 has an identical profile with the B53 which means an increase in load capacity.  Versatile and pleasing on the eye, the BF2 aluminium rail is a perfect light duty rail aimed at delivering precision loads for a number of different applications including led lights, materials handling, precision guidance applications and home improvements (one customer has recently used this linear rail to slide and replace a punch bag for his home).

The B53 is our first carrier sporting a three wheeled roller arrangement. The centre wheel can be easily adjusted to prevent movement within the rail, making the fit tighter or looser depending on the applications needs.

This new wheel offers an alternate to Chambrelan’s stainless steel ball bearing carriers, which use reinforced ball bearings that circulate within the carrier, providing a smoother all round movement, whilst spreading the load more evenly within the rail.  Because of its anodised body this rail has an attractive soft finish that protects the length of the rail as well as making it a presentable option for home improvements and retrofitting vehicles.  For a full range of our light duty, medium duty or heavy duty linear rails and linear rail carriers visit or call us directly on 01746 761 114 for further help.

The Updated D444

It’s been over three years since we launched our D444 aluminium slide and due to its popularity we’ve decided to improve it with a few modifications.  This precision built light duty slide now sports a new ball bearing layout as well as, in shorter lengths, a set of free moving ball-bearings, that are no longer contained within plastic ball strips, meaning a smoother operating movement, with the ability to carry and deliver loads accurately and with less resistance.

The D446, with a lock out and demount option has 3 M4 fixing positions making the slide easier to maintain.  This lock out and demount feature enables drawers to be removed and refitted without the need for undoing screws and fixings.  Bottom line:  less hassle; quicker assembly time.

The D444 aluminium slide, the D444V and the D444VF are all three-beam slides, versatile, lightweight and designed to capably carry electronic applications that need a precision guided movement and therefore best suited for aeronautical, shipboard or electrical applications.  The D444v also offers a lock out option as standard, whilst the D444VF offers both a lock in and a lock out feature.

With a host of new products and product developments being launched by Chambrelan there’s a sliding system for every application and every project.  From light duty precision slides, to heavy duty work horses our range of telescopic slides are second to none.  Designed and manufactured by Chambrelan we are able to ensure delivery and quality with every application and vehicle build we supply to.

With over fifty years of experience we have created a name and a range synonymous with quality, efficiency and deliverability.
