The new 3160EC Eclipse Undermount Slide

News »

This commercial-grade slide is ideal for applications requiring an undermount slide with flawless movement and superior soft-close action.

Santa Fe Springs, CA–Gone are the days of limiting cabinet makers to building drawers less than 60 inches wide. With the arrival of Accuride’s newest, high-performance undermount slide, the 3160EC Eclipse, cabinetmakers, for the first time, have the ability to design cabinetry with wide drawers up to 60 inches.



For years, cabinet makers have been restricted to building drawers that were less than 60 inches wide. Why? Because there were no commercial-grade drawer slides that could perform flawlessly.  As a global movement solution leader, Accuride decided to tackle this issue by developing the 3160EC.

To accommodate a 60-inch wide drawer, Accuride’s engineers have developed a Cable System (included) and a Wide Drawer Stabilizer Kit (additional) that enables the 3160EC to support drawers up to 60 inches wide. (Drawers 31 to 40 inches wide don’t require the Wide Drawer Stabilizer Kit.)

This unique system allows the 3160EC to stabilize and minimize drawer racking and prevent side-to-side movement. The end result is a full extension, 100-pound rated slide that delivers robust performance and minimizes deflection for wide drawers up to 60 inches.  

You won’t hear these drawers slam with the new interior Easy-Close that reduces noise and increases soft-close reliability. Drawers will come to a smooth and gentle close, while fluid dampeners resist slamming without adding bounce-back.

Accuride strives to make installing and adjusting our drawer slides as easy as possible.  With that in mind, the new 3160EC has multiple drawer front-adjustment features on the engagement/disconnect lever. This makes horizontal, vertical, and front-to-back adjustments easier and faster. Plus, in-and-out adjustments up to 3/16" can be done without removing the drawer.
