Reinforced Ball Cage For Extra Strength

posted in: Product Review | 0

You may have noticed that some of our heavy duty slides have a ‘R’ attached to the product name. For example, RA7R and the RA5R. The ‘R’ denotes that these slides are ‘Reinforced’, but what makes them extra strong? And how does that benefit customers?

Whether it’s stainless steel or steel, whether the slides are zinc plated or ionised for extra strength, choosing our reinforced slides not only means an increase of load capacity, but also due to their construction, these slides are less likely to buck and twist during heavy use.

They key is our unique ball cages, which ‘carries’ the slide on the vertical and horizontal plane, cushioning the load on two rows of additional ball-bearings. This means an even spread of weight a long the slide and allows a smoother and more regular movement even when carrying extreme loads.
