Hardware Resources heavy duty ball bearing slides offer a new robust design to handle even the most difficult environments

Hardware Resources, a leading manufacturer of decorative and functional kitchen and bath cabinet elements, adds the highly innovative Dura-Close Soft Close Technology to their trusted 303FUSFT Series soft close ball bearing slides. The proprietary new design includes three robust technologies incorporated into the field-proven 303FUSFT series slide:

  • Reinforced steel pin that is virtually unbreakable
  • Chamfered Ramp which easily aligns the slide to an optimal position to allow fluid closing time after time
  • Durable Polymer Floating Catch to securely return drawer to closed position while being flexible enough to allow for installation variances

“We’ve made a major technological advance upon our smooth, reliable 303FU series ball bearing slide that has proven to be the go-to choice for years and has been installed on hundreds of thousands of drawers,” states Travis McElveen, functional hardware product manager for Hardware Resources. “We wanted to challenge the idea that soft close ball bearing slides, regardless of brand, can be finicky and uncooperative when installed in less than ideal applications. So Hardware Resources engineers developed the 303FUSFT Dura-Close, the slide that works with a cabinet and not against it. We coined the phrase Techno-vation to describe our new product initiatives at Hardware Resources. We are constantly seeking innovative ways technology can improve our products for designers, installers and homeowners.”

“Every detail has been thought through on these ground-breaking slides including installation covers to protect the slide from paint, stain and dust during install,” states McElveen. “These covers snap on and off and can be used multiple times.”
