The most practical, attractive and useful you will find in the market. Come and discover them!
Types of guide rails for drawers
There are different types of guide rails on the market that offer particular features for your designs. The most common of these are:
- Normal guide
The normal or pulley guides are the most commonly used because they are cheap. You must be careful when using them, because they are only recommended for small drawers and cannot bear much weight. They are not practical for drawers over 600mm long, because they are difficult to open. Besides, they do not fully open, which can be an inconvenience for your clients.
- Rail with full extraction
Telescopic rails are also quite common in many project designs. They are firm, safe and ensure that the drawer opens fully, so we can see everything inside. They are perfect for larger units that need to have large, wide drawers that can hold up to 45 kg.
- Light fully-extracting guide rail
This type of guide is similar to the one we described above, but is available at a much lower price. This is because they cannot bear the same weight. Telescopic rails can take up to 45 kg weight, but light rails can only take up to 35 kg.
- Hidden guide rails
Finally, there are the hidden or invisible guide rails, which we will explain in more detail below.
Guide rails for drawers. What are hidden rails?
As we saw in the previous section, there are different rails for drawers. Although they all do their job, the most complete option, in every sense, are the hidden guide rails. They can perform all the functions, features and benefits of the others.
They are elegant, comfortable, invisible and very effective, as well as being able to take large weights.
As their name indicates, they are completely hidden from view when the drawer is opened. While all the other guide rails are visible because they are attached to both sides of the drawers, these are invisible, because they are attached to the bottom of the drawer, which means they offer both full opening and functionality.
Without doubt, this type of guide rail adds the most value to the furniture and therefore to the design, because they do not detract from the look of the whole and are also capable of including a smooth, silent closing mechanism, to absorb impacts or even the touch to open system, that allows you to open the drawer just by touching it and without the need to add knobs or handles.
