AL4160: The New Super Heavy-Duty Slide

Accuride is always pushing the boundaries of quality movement. From high load capacities to weather-resistant materials, there’s little Accuride solutions can’t tackle – and look no further than the all-new AL4160 Super Heavy-Duty Slide as proof.

The AL4160 uses aluminum slide members and stainless-steel ball bearings for light-weight, corrosion-resistant functionality.

The AL4160 is the third entry into Accuride’s celebrated AL-Series of aluminum super heavy-duty slides. (The others being the AL4120 and AL4140.)

This new full-extension, non-disconnect slide handles loads up to a whopping 661 lbs. (300 kg). Even with that immense load capacity, the AL4160 manages to stay slim with a relatively narrow side-space of just over an inch.

The AL4160 uses aluminum slide members with stainless-steel balls and bearings. These components make the AL4160 light and resistant to moisture and other forms of corrosion.

As Sid Kalantar, Accuride’s Senior VP of Sales & Marketing noted:

“We designed the AL4160 to address a market need for a slide that supports heavy loads and performs in harsh environments but also is lightweight, low-profile and competitively-priced. Our US introduction follows eight years of successful customer use in Europe.”

Claudia Tuttle, Marketing Manager for Accuride North America, added:

“The AL4160 is a breakthrough innovation, one that gives manufacturers an affordable heavy-duty option that shows Accuride’s renowned premium feel and performance.”

The AL4160 is ideal for use in outdoor spaces, industrial machinery, and transportation.

  • Emergency Vehicles and Transportation (Buses, Trains, Trams, Heavy and Light-Rail)
  • Heavy-duty equipment in factories and warehouses applications
  • Machinery and Tool Storage
  • Aircraft Interior Parts / Aircraft Seat Parts
  • Marine Applications

The AL4160 is available in even lengths from 12″ to 20″, 32″, 36″, and 40″ (300-700 mm, 800 mm, 900 mm, and 1,000 mm).
