Aluminium Radial Rails are a cost effective but high quality benchmark in light to medium duty linear motion. Manufactured via the same process as our Radial Telescopic Slides, these have a milled raceway which precisely supports the sealed rollers, ensuring full radial contact and eliminating brinelling.
The rails come in three profile sizes – 32, 52 and 80mm and are stocked in lengths up to 5.5 metres (5,500mm).Rails are supplied undrilled as standard, with centrelines clearly marked. We can supply rail cut and drilled to customer own requirements upon request. Rail lengths up to 2.7m (2,700mm) can be purchased online. Lengths over 1,200mm will require specialist shipping, so please contact the sales office for batch quantity pricing.
The carriers come in 3 and 5 bearing lengths for increased stability. Steel bearings are fitted for strength, with Delrin bearings for noise and weight reduction. The carriers are supplied pre-loaded and fitted to each rail. Bearings are customer adjustable to increase or decrease factory settings. Carriers can be detached from the rail without loss of bearings.
Rails and carriers are purchased separately and any quantity can be fitted per rail. If required, rails can be continuously joined. Loads stated are PER CARRIER on the direct axis and will be increased accordingly to how many are fitted and how they are mounted. The load data is reduced by 50% if the rail & carriers are mounted flat, also the rail must be totally supported to achieve maximum loading.
The R32 Rail fitted with carrier has a height of 32mm and a width of 16.5mm. The R32 3 bearing carrier has an individual load capacity of 90N whilst the 5 bearing carrier is 140N. This is increased by adding additional carriers.
R32 Rails & Carriers are ordered separately and arrive factory fitted. We have large stock holdings of this product and have a same day shipping policy.Download Datasheet

Excellent fit and finish – This was required to create a sliding table on a bandsaw so needed a small slide with good tolerances and would be compact and easy to install. This worked perfectly
Peter Madsden –
The only down side is that i had to drill the rail and use external end stops. However, i got the rail cut and supplied at 3m over night with the ultra silent delrin 5 bearing option. We have since ordered another 8 lengths and got the same fast service.
Ian Beatty –
I ordered on the Monday afternoon and received 2,5m lengths with carriers the following morning in Glasgow. I was guided throughout the process by a very knowledgeable lady. The rails are perfect for the camera unit with a nice smooth travel.
Trevor Fyfield –
I like the unique raceway and matching bearings which run smoothly and without play. We had to drill the mounting holes but there is a centreline running down the rail to pick up from. The Delrin carriers are silent in motion which appealed to my furnture appliciation. We took a 2.25m length and received it next day.
