Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9842232A2] A drawer slide formed by cold rolling metal strip and shaped, in cross section, to define mutually presented tracks (16a, 16b; 17a, 17b) for receiving and cooperating with rollers (13; 14) carried, in use, by a drawer or by a drawer receiving cabinet, a web portion (18; 19) integrally interconnecting said tracks, stop means (24) at one end of a channel defined by said web and its respective tracks, and a buffer (31; 51) associated with said stop means (24), characterised in that said buffer (31; 51) is constructed from a shock-absorbent resilient material and comprises a pair of faces (34a, 34b; 54a, 54b) which each abut, or are closely adjacent, a respective one of said tracks, and a recess (32; 52) which is presented towards said rollers and is of such a size and shape that, in use, a roller may at least partially enter therein and abut a surface of the recess, causing the buffer to be distorted between the roller and the tracks such that at least one of said pair of faces abuts its respective track and so transfers part of the energy of the relative movement of the slide and the roller to the track, so cushioning any impact on the stop means.
