Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice action easy to fit These are nice quality runners, perfectly suited for building a sliding shelf at the bottom of a kitchen cabinet. Easy to install and very sturdy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy mechanism Bought for plywood drawers going into a workbench. Seemed fine, free running, until second of a pair of drawers wouldn’t easily close in full at which point bits of plastic broke off and the runner ends came out. NOT overforced. Poor quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First class product I used these (or at least the non-soft close original versions) 11 years ago when I built a new kitchen for my own house. They have been in daily use since and the biggest drawers - 800w x 550d - have held cast-iron pans, crockery and other very heavy stuff. They continue to work as well as when fitted and I am here giving a review as I am just about to build a utility room which requires drawers. Not so simple to fit as cheaper pre-formed drawer sides but much, much better. P.S. side clearance is NOT 7mm as stated by Screwfix but about 13mm each side!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super heavy duty Bought before so I knew the quality of these. They are heavy duty with good extension of drawer from unit. Installed into heavy drawers in workshop for tools. Perfect and will last years. Unfortunately 4 for value as they are not cheap but you/I have bought quality runners.

Is the max weight rating at full extension?

Hi, is the max weight for this item (40kg) when the runners are fully extended? Thanks.

What is the required clearance between the side of the drawer and the unit on either side for these runners? thanks

Asked by: razvy
Screwfix product support are incorrect. You will need 12.4mm (measured with vernier callipers) between the drawer and the runner on both sides. The thinnest part of the slide that you pull out measures 7mm.

What is the height of these sliders?

Im installing a small worksurface that rolls out but the gap between the top of the washing machine and the underside of the worktop is only 35mm could you tell me if these will fit ?
Asked by: Drummer23
Hello, Thank you for your enquiry. No, these will not fit, the clearance would need to be at least 40mm, sorry. Hope that helps. Thank you for using Q&A.

Can these come apart so you can remove the draw completely

Asked by: Slippyfist
Hi, I'm looking at using these for a project too and noticed there is an instruction pdf on the specs page, assuming it is the correct one for this product then: 2. Separate the Cabinet Member from Drawer member using the Release Lever. It also shows a picture of the runner and the release lever, hope that helped.
