Exterior Drawer SLides


I have a client who wants some drawers constructed for his deck
Are there any suggestions for exterior drawer slides

If I have to go bench instead I am wondering if an exterior piano hinge is available

Thanks

Exterior Drawer SLides


Slides similar to what is used on pickup bed boxes might work. They are usually stainless steel or at least weather resistant.

Exterior Drawer SLides


I would insist on Stainless Steel, Full Extension slides.
The standard lengths are 12' to 24" in 2" increments.
Not all Manufacturers make slides in all the lengths.

Don't waste time looking at the big box stores. They don't stock anything unless they can sell a couple of hundred every week.

First check for any local sources that sell to cabinet makers or similar trades.
You don't give your location but here in LA my best source is:

The two most common brands for ball bearing SS slides are:
