[toggle title=”Baltic Birch” open=”no”]The main drawer box of all of our slide-outs is constructed of 1/2″ Baltic birch–an imported hardwood ply. Designed specifically for the drawer box industry, this material is very strong, exceptionally stable, and sports a very attractive grain pattern. We leave the color natural and apply two coats of clear lacquer to protect it.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Dovetails” open=”no”]There is no better way to make a long lasting drawer box than using dovetail joinery. While our competitors either avoid them altogether, or charge a premium for them, all of our slide-out products employ dovetail joints, insuring a lifetime of service.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Dados” open=”no”]A stapled on bottom just won’t do! To insure your slide-outs never fail, we channel every side with a 1/4″ dado to completely capture and support the bottom. Our drawer bottoms are made of 1/4″ MDF with a thermally fused melamine finish in almond color. [/toggle]

Removing the center partition on double door cabinets

In many cases, we can remove the center partition between the doors in order to install full width slide-outs. Once removed, the partition is attached to one of the doors. As you can see in the pictures, the only visible evidence is the tiny gap both above and below the partition. We do charge for this service, but it usually costs less to do it and add just two slide-outs than it would to install four narrower ones. NOTE: Once we remove the center partition, installing the slide-outs will require adjustable pilasters (see below).[separator top=”15″ style=”single”]

Installing for adjustability with pilasters

Pilasters are essentially pre-drilled posts made of poplar that are installed against the inner side walls of the cabinet. The drawer slides are then attached to the pilasters. Because the pilasters are pre-drilled, relocating the slide-out shelf is just a matter of moving the slides up or down to the desired location. Our custom pilasters are sold in sets for both single and double door cabinets, and are available in standard length (for base cabinets) and tall (for pantry cabinets).  [/two_third]

Frame mounting

Most slide-out shelves are installed in the same way your existing cabinet drawers are–the front of the drawer slide is mounted to the cabinet’s face frame and the rear is mounted to the back wall with special brackets. Slide-outs installed this way are not adjustable, though we are happy to set the upper slide-out(s) at a level that you specify.[/two_third]
