How to Install an Undermount Drawer Slide
Undermount slides give your drawers that always-fashionable clean and minimalist look. But using undermount slides requires some different steps to installation than those found on traditional side-mounted drawer slides. That’s why we’ve brought you this video that shows you the key steps in installing an undermount sliding system. For this installation, we use the Accuride 3160EC Commercial-Grade Undermount Slide. The 3160EC is the only slide designed to support ultra-wide drawers – all the way up to 5 ft. in width. That comes thanks to a novel suspension system. This is a popular movement solution with custom designs in upscale boutiques, galleries, and homes.

Slide Terminology – Mounting and Installing Drawer Slides
In this Slideology video, we look at the different ways to install and mount a drawer slide. Hard Mounting refers to slides that are mounted directly to a cabinet without the use of brackets or rails. The outer member is attached to the cabinet while the inner member is attached to the drawer itself. Flat Mounted Slides are placed horizontally. The inner member of the slide is mounted on the bottom of the slide, while the external piece is attached to the top of the cabinet. There are very few slides that can be used this way.
Dual mounted slides can be mounted in either a side or flat configuration. Flat mounted slides also have somewhat limited capabilities since they reduce the load capacity. In fact, a flat mounted slide normally supports less than half the load a side mounted slide would. Vertically mounted slides – Slides like this are not load bearing, and only act as guides for movement. Rail Mounting slides helps a slide move as smooth as possible, even when the construction or material used in the cabinet is uneven. Bracket Mounting is common in face frame mounting style cabinets or platform mounting applications.
