The 8026 Radial Slide is a heavy duty, partial extension telescopic slide (220-300Kg/pair) suitable for a wide range of applications. At 550mm 1 pair has a load capacity of 290Kg with 290mm of travel, making it ideal for mid mounted drawers and trailer stowage. However, the cross roller bearing system was designed for use on emergency vehicle drawers where lightweight, non corrosive material is often preferred. Aluminium Radial Slides and Rails have been developed with a unique crossed roller bearing system which make full length contact in the ball race and eradicates bearing indentation (brinelling) and migration.
Cross roller bearings are best suited to applications like aircraft seating where offset loads and point contact stresses cause significant indentation in the ball race and subsequent slide failure. However, due to the rigidity of the slides, there is no play in the beams and this allows for deflection free extension. The 8026 slide can be extended to 75% of the closed length with minimal play and slight loss of loading. The 8026 slides now have heavy duty die-spring end stops to absorb impact upon closure.
The larger profiles can take considerable loading and with the option of up to 130% extension, are rigid enough support emergency truck drawers & pump carriers to 2500N. The benefit also being that the slides offer a considerable weight saving to steel and are non corrosive. Thus negating the need to specify expensive, full stainless steel sections. These work well with our non corrosive handles, locks and tilting drawers.
The 8026 Radial Slide is manufactured from 6005a aluminium with the bearing races milled for tolerance. The finish is self colour anodization, however there are various options. The bearings are hardened steel and chromed rods.
