Undermount drawer slides
Undermount drawer slides are becoming the standard for up- market furniture manufacturers. They tend to be more stable than side mounted slides and being concealed they are much easier on the eye.
One shortcoming of the design has been that the drawer sides have to be a specific thickness with the market leader allowing composites up to 16mm thick and no more.
Sugatsune will soon be introducing an undermount drawer slide with a key advantage, it can be used with boards up to 19mm. For many bespoke manufacturers being able to use standard thickness boards is important and this slide is being eagerly anticipated.
It is of course soft-closing and front adjustable without a screwdriver, and in line with the ability to use more substantial boards it has a market leading 34kg load capacity – compared with 30kg for the competition.
Sugatsune has some prototypes of the MUV34 in stock if you’d like to evaluate the slides and will start shipping in March.
In retail display every detail communicates the values of your brand. Shelving systems are very often the setting for high value items and a good designer will consider the context for their goods very carefully. The AP-DM shelf standard is an oriental reworking of an established idea with some modern twists. Ultra slim tracks are surface mounted or recessed into the wall giving a purchase to shelf supports that are cleverly designed to give no dead space under the shelf.
