Lockdowel Inc. announces the company’s snap-in drawer slides were recently tested by Integrity Testing Laboratories and have passed all ANSI/BIFMA testing requirements for hardware as specified by the Woodwork Institute (WI) and the Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI). In a written statement by Ed Leach, Laboratory Manager for Integrity Testing Laboratories, he writes: “You’ve done all the slide tests and far exceeded all requirements”
The testing included 50,000 cycle testing with a 100 lb load and extendible member testing of the Lockdowel undermount soft close, side mount soft close, and 3 piece sidemount drawer slides.
Lockdowel won the 2017 AWFS Visionary Award for its Snap-in Drawer slides because they require no tools or screws and installation time is three times faster than conventional drawer slides. Because CNC routed slots allow for perfect alignment, drawer adjustment is minimal.
