The CH3832 is a moisture-resistant and specially coated light-duty drawer runner. That moisture-resistant coating, along with polymer balls, allows the CH3832 to endure repeated wash cycles and prolonged frozen storage without compromising its effectiveness.

Electronic Hardware

Accuride goes beyond the home, however. Countless databases rely on Accuride slides to remove and install hardware aboard server racks.

Accuride offers moving solutions with narrow cross-sections, to better fit into racks, and over-travel extensions, for easier pull-out access, for chassis sizes from 1U to 8U.

The 2907 is a great example. This light-duty slide handles loads up to 115 lbs., has a low-profile height of just 1.62 in., and provides 2 in. of over-travel.
