The Performance Stainless Steel Range of slides is manufactured in Germany from milled and rolled stainless steel sections. The quality of the section is the best available and the bearings are hand fitted to give a slight pre-load with minimal play in the beams. By milling the section and balltracks we are able to offer a very accurate bearing fit which results in a much smoother extension. A poorly fitted slide will suffer with bearing migration and other associated problems.
The beams are machined from 304 stainless, however any other grade can be specified. They have excellent corrosion properties, so can be used on oil rigs, underslung train battery boxes and military applications requiring minimal electro-magnetic signature. The bearings, ball cages and stops are all stainless steel. Most of the slides can be fitted with locks in the closed and fully extended positions, plus many fixing options.
The FOS58 is a full extension telescopic slide with width of 24mm and height 58mm. It is ideal as an upgrade for the standard steel version FOB58, when stainless steel is demanded. At 550mm the FOS58 can handle 117kg of loading per extended pair, which makes it ideal for military generator/battery stowage. Various locking options can be fitted, please consult our engineers.
Our Stainless Steel slides are sold as single units, not a pair. Please allow 5 weeks for all slides in this range, as they are manufactured to order.
