Product review: Slam Lock Draw Fronts

posted in: Product Review | 0

DHMore and more customers are enquiring about Chambrelan’s Slam Lock Draw Front, the sales of which have been growing since we launched the slam lock over a year ago.
The latest option, which boasts a quick lock instant release mechanism with both a lock in and lock out option, is now being used across vehicle builders in the commercial sector and the emergency services.

Made from high strength, Grade ‘A’ plastics for better endurance and performance, the LILO slam lock has been designed to take the punishment dished out on a daily basis by front line fire crews, engineers and those working with defence applications. Because of this the slam lock is incredibly robust with fewer working parts that can’t jam or snarl up due to regular use. The Slam lock uses a stainless steel bar and stainless steel fasteners for added strength when locked in place and an black polyamid handle.

Available on stock, these easy to fit easy to maintain handles are currently being used by national and international vehicle builders and manufacturers.

Slam locks handles are available in different options accordng to required use:

  • Single Handle: to allow easy and comfortable handling of the sliding device;
  • Slam lock handle: the drawer is locked in the folded position and you have to press the center red button to allow its extension;
  • Slam lock handle open and closed: the drawer is locked in the folded position and you have to press the center red button to extend the drawer; once extended, it locks up and must again press the center button to close the tray (that will lock automatically at the end of the race);
  • Slam lock handle lock for double extension drawer: the drawer is locked in the center position and each side of the drawer has a handle with release button. By pressing the center red button, you can extend the drawer on one side or the other;
  • Indexing slam lock handle: the drawer will be opened step by step according to the defined positions.

Quik Corp Fire Engineering design and manufacture a range of specialised fire and emergency equipment. By working with Queensland Rural Fire Service, the Australian Department of Defence, New South Wales National Parks, Forestry plantations and mining corporations in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the Phillipines, Quik Corp understand only to well the value design, experience and quality play in making their equipment.

In this particular instance Quik Corp were commissioned to design and build a Remote Fire Appliance used as an Airport Fire Appliance

Mounted StretcherJaws of Life on heavy duty slidesDrop down kit stowage using Chambrelan's slide and tilt system









Built on a 6000L MAN 6×4 chassis the Remote Fire Appliance needed to pack a stretcher mounted inside a locker complete with all the equipment for a rescue situation. The sliding locker needed to be accessible from only one side and needed to be fully extended to make access and reloading faster and easier. Extra storage was also needed for further emergency kit, but due to the height of the appliance, and to allow viewing of equipment and ease of access, Chambrelan’s slide and tilt drawer system was fitted together with the Slam Lock and handle and the draws used both Chambrelan’s heavy duty RA7R and heavy duty RA5R.

In addition further road crash rescue equipment mounted on Chambrelan RA7R 450mm closed length full extension which also incorporate Chambrelan’s Slam Lock fitted with the lock in / lock out (LILO) option.


“Being a builder of emergency equipment our paramount concern is reliability of all components we install on our vehicles. Chambrelan’s wide range of sliding systems and the companies dedication to quality, was the reason we recently changed to Chambrelan for all our heavy duty slide requirements.” Tim Syben, Quik Corp Fire Engineering.
