Fridge slides
« on: August 29, 2021, 05:14:48 PM »
Hey all

Looking at new drawers likely drifters  . Notice just about everyone offers an Intergrated fridge slide nowadays . Ive always used the original style metal one with folded up edges . Curious on those with the Intergrated how they find them ? Does the fridge move ? Or slides not as solid?
Here for a good time, not a long time!

I’ve got the integrated one on my Titan draws
Hardly ever use it as stuff falls Into the draw when you slide it forward
Been thinking of putting a slide on top even with the added weight

Maybe add a divider to stop stuff falling in?

I prefer a low profile fridge like an ARB35L.
No need to slide it out to access the goodies....

I’ve got a set of Drifta draws and the integrated slide…

Mine though only has one draw on the RHS with the fridge slide on the left.

I love it… when not using the fridge, there is a piece that fits over the gap to create a full flat surface again…

Integrated table is a beauty, too…

I can open my 35L Engel without having to slide it out, so can access a cold one
A divider isn’t a bad idea but I sometimes store stuff behind the fridge

Thanks guys , yeah not interested in drop slide . Just seems like complication and weight I don’t want. Just trying to decide to keep with conventional slide or Intergrated. I VE got a ARB 47l

Agree with the weight being high with a drop down fridge slide, the price is high but depends on how, when and where you buy it. I have one and think its great. I built my drawers to my own specs and got maximum depth in them with my fridge in the slide. Without it my wife cannot get into the fridge, I would need a step to get to see what was where in it and to reach the bottom.  Each to their own but happy how it is. The big drawback is if I need to put something in the back, say something biggish the width of the draws I can't, slide is in the way. It has to come out or the back seat come in to play.

I have a set of Titan drawers and had the same issue of stuff falling down the gap.
As a quick fix I had a piece of chipboard a bit wider than the drawer and as long as the unused part of the slide.  A batten on the bottom of each side allows the drawer to move and chipboard to stay.  Works a treat
