Drawer runners

Drawer runners - metal, plastic

In the early 1980s, the first drawer runners with ball bearings were introduced. This has completely changed the furniture industry. Previously, furniture was equipped with something more reminiscent of primitive guidance - usually made of wood or plastic. Over the years, furniture runners technology has evolved. Starting from H17mm drawer slides, which are predisposed to economical furniture, and those that will not support heavy loads, roller runners - which, in fact, can not be classified as ball bearing slides, but they are equipped with a system of lubricating rollers that resemble other guides, to 27mm, 30mm, 35mm high drawer runners, which are much more durable and can be universally used for various types of kitchen, office, room and even metal furniture.

Today, the most durable and popular solution for drawers are H45 ball-bearing drawer runners/slides, they can support up to 45kg, and very often are equipped with an additional mechanism such as soft closing, push-top-open or auto-lock.

While all the ball bearing slides H53mm, H45mm, H35mm, H30mm, H27mm, and H17mm are mounted on the sides of the drawer, the undermount drawer runners are, as the name implies, attached from below.
