Which Drawer Slides Work Best For My Space?

Tansel stainless steel pull out drawers are designed to fit into a large range of spaces. Our slide options give you flexibility so you are able to achieve maximum use of your space. There are 3 slide options and here is an overview of each.


OPTION A : 2 x 35mm Side Mount Slides (SLB.450)

These slides are our “go to” if you have a standard cabinet width. They are full extension (ie. slide out 100%) and include a built in spacer to clear most standard hinges. Standard cabinet sizes are those with an internal width ending in “67” or “18”. Example: 167, 267, 367mm etc or 218, 318, 418mm etc.

SLIDE FEATURES

(1) 40kgs weight capacity
(2) 22mm built in spacer to clear most 90-110 degree hinges
(3) Full extension ball bearing, zinc plated
(4) Includes a rubber buffer to prevent doors being marked
(5) Available in soft close (Note: not recommended for DIY installation)

INSTALLATION DIFFICULTY

Easy, suitable for DIY. All screw holds are exposed and easy to adjust.

WILL THIS SLIDE WORK FOR MY SPACE?

Choose a basket width and add 70mm. You have a -2mm tolerance, which you need to reduce from the total.

For example:

(400W Stainless Steel Basket Drawer) + (70mm slides) – (2mm)
= 368mm. This is your minimum internal cabinet width.


OPTION B: 2 x 13mm Side Mount Slides (SL.450.H)

If your internal cabinet width doesn’t end in  “67” or “18”, you have a non standard cabinet width and we recommend using this slide. Slides are full extension (ie. slide out 100%) and can be used with packers to clear hinges, door obstructions or fill any residual space. They are also ideal for cabinets with no doors (eg, Butlers Pantries).

SLIDE FEATURES

(1) 40kgs weight capacity
(2) Full extension ball bearing, zinc plated
(3) Includes a rubber buffer to prevent doors being marked
(4) Available in soft close (Note: not recommended for DIY installation)

INSTALLATION DIFFICULTY

Moderate. Slides will need to be disconnected and a higher level of installation accuracy is required.

WILL THIS SLIDE WORK FOR MY SPACE?

Choose a basket width and add 26mm. You have a -2mm tolerance, which you need to reduce from the total.

For example:

(400W Stainless Steel Basket Drawer) + (26mm slides) – (2mm)
= 424mm. This is your minimum internal cabinet width.


OPTION C: 2 x 14.5mm Bottom Mount Slides (SLF.450)

Bottom mounting is suitable for fixed shelves and irregular spaces, such as under sink areas or spaces with no side walls. Slides are full extension (ie.slide out 100%) and can be positioned where ever required. These slides have only 4 bottom fixing screw holes so have a lower weight capacity unless they are reinforced.

SLIDE FEATURES

(1) 20kgs weight capacity (unless reinforced)
(2) Full extension ball bearing, zinc plated
(3) Includes a rubber buffer to prevent doors being marked

INSTALLATION DIFFICULTY

Easy. Slides will need to be disconnected and a higher level of installation accuracy is required.

WILL THIS SLIDE WORK FOR MY SPACE?

Choose a basket width and add 30mm. You have a -2mm tolerance, which you need to reduce from the total.

For example:

(400W Stainless Steel Basket Drawer) + (30mm slides) – (2mm)
= 428mm. This is your minimum internal cabinet width.
