Drawer runners, sometimes called drawer slides are long metal sliding mechanisms that enable the opening and closing of drawers. The furniture bracket is fitted to the bottom of the drawer, and the drawer bracket is fitted to the sides of the drawer. There are soft close drawer styles and ball bearing drawer options that glide effortlessly with little friction for easy drawer closing.
Various types of drawer slides are used to make drawers in homes operate smoothly. Drawer runners are ideal for fitting to home storage systems and are perfect for the kitchen. The measurement of the closed length will depend on the installation requirement. Our closed length measurements include 350mm, 400mm and 450mm.
With a ball bearing mechanism featuring a soft closing feature, these drawer runners are designed to last for a long time. The plastic drawer slides we offer can be used in furniture units and in kitchen drawers. They allow for full drawer extension, so you can rummage for items at the back of the drawer more easily!
As an additional feature, the drawer drawers feature a built-in ball bearing mechanism that ensures smooth and quiet drawer operation as well as a soft-close feature to prevent drawers from slamming shut.
How to Replace existing Drawer Runners
To replace your existing drawer runners, you will need a tape measure, pozidrive screw driver, pencil and of course the new drawer runners and fixings.
To remove a drawer from a unit, first remove the drawer. The drawer should be gently pulled out as far as possible, and the runners should be detached from the drawers by removing the fixings.
In order to unlock the drawer, you need to remove the fixings, so you can remove the runners. Once the runners are freed, you can access and remove more fixations that hold the drawer to the unit.
Make sure you write down the length and width of each of the closed drawer runners with your tape measure.
It is important to measure each runner from each drawer when replacing the runners on multiple drawers. Even within a single unit, variations can occur.
Your new drawer runners will arrive once they are aligned for installation. Once the guides are installed, you will need to screw in the new fixings. Every drawer should be cleaned in the same manner.
