Austin Hardware & Supply, Inc. has reached an agreement with Tuma to be their United States distributor of heavy and extra heavy duty drawer slides.
While Austin Hardware has supplied heavy duty drawer slides for many years, Tuma’s slides add to that offering, giving Austin the broadest offering of drawer slides to industrial and wheeled vehicle markets including the fire, rescue, and emergency vehicle industry as well as the utility and service body markets.
Those offerings include low profile, extra heavy duty steel slides with full extension rated up to 1,100 and 770 lbs. respectively; a corrosion resistant aluminum slide that is exceptionally strong with a rating of up to 660 lbs.; and a 4-member steel slide with over-travel to 150% extension rated at up to 440 lbs.
Additionally, Austin will be offering a locking handle that mounts to the drawer face and connects to the underside of these heavy and extra-heavy duty slides creating a simple and efficient lock-in/lock-out drawer system.
