Professional Range C45 Steel Extreme Duty < 2,410kg
These high strength steel slides have been designed to work under conditions of extreme shock and vibration, particularly applications of under slung battery boxes on trains and heavy drawers on specialist vehicles. The DTS range has the tried and tested ‘I’ beam format where strength and rigidity is required with minimal slide deflection. This method of manufacture is far superior to other processes where slides are made from rolled or drawn ‘C’ sections which are liable to failure on extreme applications.
The Professional Range is available in a number of formats which offer extensions from 50/70% through to 100/120%, 150% and even 200% of the slide’s closed length. We offer bi-directional extension as standard. Our slides are tested to destruction and we confidently work up to 2,410 kg with the largest profiles. Load calculations are based upon <1% deflection of the slide’s closed length when fully loaded per extended pair. This rises to <1.5% on our 150 and 200% extensions due to the multiple beams. Our slides are load tested on the direct axis, spaced 700mm apart. The entire range is manufactured from high grade steel type C45 E+C which ensures a slide with strong raceways, fit for the industrial purpose they were designed. Ball cages separate the bearings with optimum spacing and are laser cut for accuracy in motion. Standard ball bearings are chrome plated steel with an option to upgrade to stainless steel 316L. This suits applications such as train battery boxes where solid section stainless steel slides are beyond budget.
All Professional Range slides are fitted with internal end stops to retain the beams when in the closed and fully extended positions. There are heavy duty end bolts to secure the slides when stowed and solid steel pins which locate at the rear bearing within the cages to prevent the beams detaching. Our end bolts/pins are tested to support the stated loads at operational speeds below 0.3m/s.
Standard Professional Range steel slides are RoHS & REACH certified to withstand over 1,000 hours corrosion protection, until the appearance of red rust. This is due to the investment made in our own state of the art electrolytic alkaline zinc processing facility. Core steel C45 E+C, with a layer depth of 10-12 microns conforming to DIN EN ISO 9227 neutral salt spray testing. No white rust appearance within 120 hours. No red rust within 1,032 hours. Request stainless steel 316L ball bearings to maximise this protection. Beyond this, we can offer nickel plate or an interchangeable range of all stainless steel 316L slides.
Our Front Handle Locking System has been developed to work with the Professional Range as a positive, rugged means of securing the drawer. No more finger catching or long lead times having slides manufactured. Datasheets in 3D .stp format are available for download on our main site www.gsfslides.com/
Professional Range Extreme Duty Telescopic Slides are sold as single units, not a pair. Key lengths of DTS40, 50 & 60 slides are usually available on a same working day despatch, supported by high levels of stock. Please allow 5-6 weeks manufacture for all other slides in this range.
