A brief outline of Accuride’s heavy-duty products and their typical industrial applications.
Countless applications rely on Accuride heavy-duty movement solutions. Those solutions handle max loads from 170 to over 1,300 lbs.
But what are those solutions? And what are some applications you might find these solutions?
Accuride 3600 Series: The Entry-Level Heavy-Duty Slide Family
The 3600 Series forms the entry point in heavy-duty solutions. In general, 3600 Series slides handle max loads of 273 lbs. come with a cross-section thickness of .75″, and some variants come with extra-travel. Like many product families, the 3600 Series comes in variants with special features.
The Accuride 3620, for example, is a variant with a pocket-and-bayonet design. This design makes for quick “snap-in” installation and also augments standard features.
A pocket-and-bayonet design, 200 lb. max capacity, and over-travel extension make it a good fit in lateral filing cabinets.
The Accuride SS5321 is a stainless-steel model similar to a 3601. This slide has a .75″ cross-section, 1″ over-travel, and a load rating of 352 lbs. It’s a terrific option for entry-level, heavy-duty applications in marine and outdoor environments.
Accuride 7900 Series: A Big Step Forward in Heavy-Duty Drawer Slides
The 7900 Series goes that extra mile in movement. This family of slides can tackle up to 350 lbs. and support applications up to 42″ wide. The 7900 Series has a cross-section .75″ thick and a full-extension design.
The Accuride 7957 is a variant that includes a handed lever to disconnect slide members. In other words, you can remove a drawer from a cabinet. This feature makes the 7957 an effective solution for heavy-duty toolboxes.
Accuride 9300 Series: The Standard in Heavy-Duty Drawer Slides
The 9300 Series is practically synonymous with “heavy-duty.” It’s been in production for two decades and has set the bar for competitors.
The 9300 Series can handle max loads up to 600 lbs. and 42” wide. Thanks to a full-extension design, the 9300 Series slides’ exceptional performance don’t compromise drawer access.
The Accuride 9308E has been a favorite variant. It comes with a lock-in and lock-out feature, making it ideal for vehicular storage. A user simply presses down on a gloved tab to disengage the locking mechanism so he open or close a drawer.

Accuride AL Series: Super Heavy-Duty Aluminum Drawer Slide
The 9300 Series isn’t the highest option when it comes to heavy-duty ball bearing movement. The AL family of aluminum super heavy-duty slides is an option for extreme applications.
There are options for even tougher applications, such as heavy industrial machinery. The AL family of super heavy-duty slides have maximum load ratings between 661 and 1,323 lbs.
The “AL” designation refers to slide members’ aluminum material. Those members work with stainless-steel balls and bearings to deliver corrosion-resistant capabilities.
The Accuride AL4140 serves the top of the AL line. It features a full-extension design with support for loads up to 1,323 lbs. These features make the AL4140 a terrific solution to underpin moving sections within marine vehicles.
Accuride 116RC: A Heavy-Duty Linear Track-and-Carriage System
Not all heavy-duty movement solutions are drawer slides.
Take the Accuride 116RC: It’s a heavy-duty carriage-and-track system. A user mounts an application, such as a door, to brackets attached to the carriages. The carriages, in turn, sit within an aluminum track. Balls within the carriages permit a user to slide an application with ease–so much ease, in fact, that the 116RC is ADA-compliant (pull-force under 5 lbs.), all while supporting loads up to 793 lbs.
The 116RC’s design enables users to mount it in various configurations. (Load ratings can vary by configuration, however. Consult with the Accuride 116RC tech sheet for details.)
Turn to Accuride if you or your business is considering a heavy-duty ball bearing movement solution. We have a diverse lineup of heavy-duty solutions with max load ratings from 200 to over 1,300 lbs. All Accuride solutions come backed by 60+ years of experience and a limited lifetime warranty. Our slides are engineered to deliver the most exceptional movement while outlasting the competition.
