*Increased Load Capacities!
The DTS-40 is a rugged, compact, slide which has been designed for load maximisation from a small space envelope. Particularly suited to equipment drawers on special vehicles or industrial seating, it also has a wide range of applications where torsional strength is paramount. As this slide is available in both steel, stainless and aluminium formats, it is used throughout the industrial seating industry from aircraft to trains and military vehicles.
This is a heavy load/duty full extension telescopic slide (119-266Kg/pair) suitable for a wide range of applications. At 550mm 1 pair has a full extension load capacity of 259Kg. Constructed from cold drawn steel sections and fitted with caged ball bearings the DTS-40 telescopic slide has an excellent level of resistance to shock and vibration when supporting a static load in the closed position. Accordingly, this slide is well suited to mounting on vehicles. Constructed in the tried and tested I beam format, offering a compact slide height for its’ high load capacity with very low deflection.
The slide also has excellent resistance to applied loads when in the extended position making it an excellent choice for dynamic applications with high levels of torque. Additional product variations may be produced with alternative closed lengths, extensions, mounting systems, surface treatments and stainless ball bearings. The DTS-40 slide may also be used in the minor axis (flat) but the load capacity will be reduced to approximately 60% (depending on slide length) with an increase in deflection.
The slides are manufactured from cold drawn steel C45E+C in accordance with EN 10277. Standard ball cages are manufactured from zinc plated sheet metal, and the ball bearings are carbon steel C85 G100 in accordance with DIN 5401.
* The DTS40 length 600mm has been load tested with 255kg evenly distributed for 1,000 cycles, with the slides spaced 1,000mm apart. Deflection at full extension was 10mm. Operational forces: 10kg to open fully and 12kg to close. Minimal effort with low deflection and high safety margin.
Prices are per single slide. Loadings are given per extended pair. There are two slides per pair. The DTS-40 is stocked in large quantities across the full range of lengths from 150mm to 1,500mm. For OEM volumes, please allow 3-4 weeks for manufacture or consult our sales engineers. Our stock holding is constantly growing to meet customer demands.Download Datasheet
