Roller slide has a simple structure, consisting of a pulley and two rails, which is able to meet the daily needs – pull and push. However, its defect is poor bearing capacity, and it can’t rebound. At present, it will be generally weeded out.
Ball bearing slide
Ball bearing slide commonly refers to three-section metal slide rail which is installed on the side of a drawer. The installation is relatively easy, and it will save more space for you. So the ball bearing slide is the main force on the current market. The ball bearing slide rails with good quality ensure soomth pull and push, and they are of large bearing capacity. Moreover, damped steel slides with bumpers have mute function, which can be gently closed by users.
Gear slide includes hidden-type slide and horseback pulling slide, which belongs to high-grade slide rail. Using gear makes the slide rails smooth and synchronous. This type of slide rail also has the functions of buffering closure or pressing rebound opening. It is often used in high-grade furniture. Actually, gear slide is rare in modern furnitures due to its higher price, and then it is not as popular as ball bearing slide.
