When it comes to utility and emergency vehicles, Accuride International, a leading manufacturer of drawer slides and movement solutions, believes sliding hardware performance can be mission critical.

In addition to drawers, trays, and shelves, pull-out vertical panels are used to carry low profile tools, wire, rope, and hoses. Deep bins and drawers are used to store bulk supplies and materials.

Many vehicles also serve as a mobile office. Service or sales paperwork, invoicing, route planning, and other activities are often managed on the road. The Accuride slide collection provides access to drawers or trays for supplies, files, or literature. The company’s sliding hardware also enables drivers to position a work surface or access a laptop docking station or other electronic devices.
