Light Rail

Light telescopic linear guides with full or partial extraction

Key features:

  • Good rigidity in relation to a lightweight design
  • Space saving. Ideal for medium and lightweight drawers
  • Quiet sliding

Product Description

Light Rail is the product family of lightweight telescopic rails with full and partial extension, ideal for applications in which the mass of the rail is just as important as the bending rigidity. Dedicated end stoppers allow smooth and quiet operation even with heavy loads applied and avoid permanent distortion in case of eventual shocks.

Different options are available depending on the rail size (e.g. locking systems in open and/or closed position) and further customizations (eg. lengths, strokes) are possible.

Light Rail product family is composed of two main series:

LRS:
Telescopic rails with partial or full extension made of cold rolled steel profiles coated with corrosion resisting zinc-plating ISO 2081 and blue passivation. Their range of use spans from light-duty applications, such as kitchen drawers or office furniture, to more demanding ones in industrial automations or special vechicles.

LFS:
Telescopic rail with full extension made of bright chrome-plated steel and featuring a detachable internal element which can be released with a latch.

Main fields of application for Light Rail telescopic rails:
■ Interiors and furniture
■ Special vechicles
■ Automotive
■ Packaging machines
■ Railcars
