I would like to know drawer slide recommendations. My
customer wants the following:
1- A four drawer kitchen cabinet - the drawers are large,
76 X 54 X 33 cm. and will hold pans, etc. less than 100
pounds, so the slides probably with have to be heavy duty.
2- She wants full extension slides.
3- The cabinet is face framed in oak.
I usually use accuride, but those new ones with the cam
adjust look cheap to me for such a large drawer. I would
like to get the self closing if possible. I don't want to
go up to the series 9301 accuride because they cost about
$90.00 a pair.
I used Hettich QuadroV6's on my last kitchen job and both the purchaser of
the home and I were tickled with them:
Download the .pdf file. You do have to pay attention to your drawer
dimensions, and there are two shallow holes which have to be drilled/routed
in the drawer back (I used a fence and stops on a router table with a
straight bit and it took about 10 seconds per unit once it was set up).
Self-closing, and you can purchase an additional mechanism which closes them
automatically from about the 3/4 in position.
Well engineered, and a very smooth, expensive feel that really complements a
top-of-the-line custom cabinet job ... you will not want to use them on
I will most definitely use them on the next kitchen.
Cornerstone Hardware & Supplies (the old Cabinetmaker's Hardware at 6910
Renwick), working models of the Hettich on display. They do have an
attitude, but I often buy bulk on a company account so do get some semblance
of service/price from them ... albeit grudgingly.
