Heavy duty drawer slides (150 lbs, 200 lbs etc.)
Thanks to GW, we are doing all drawer base cabs and I knew enough to ask for heavy duty drawer slides. I have some questions on which drawers to ask this for.
1) are there any drawer slides which have soft close and are heavy duty rated? My cab guys says that the heavy duty glides are not soft close.
2) how did you decide which drawers need them and what weight rating did you select? 3 of my lowest drawers are 10" deep and 37 inches wide. I want to store pots and pans (cast iron, Le Creuset etc.) also heavy pantry items (grains, flour, beans) and dishes (plates, owls etc..). Do I need 150lbs rated slides or should I go higher? Please note that I do not have a separate pantry.
3) I also have 6 3/4 drawers above these that will have pretty much the same category of things. Should I do heavy duty slides for these too? The slides about $100 per drawer.. So I want to make sure I get this right but do not go overkill.
