Hi all - Am looking at building a slide for ARB 47L fridge. I have been looking at drawer runners and have found hundreds of different options ranging from $70 - $250. All have been 'heavy duty' ball bearing runners. Has anyone has any experience with DIY fridge slides and found any nice draw runners that are nice and strong, yet don't break the bank? Fridge needs to extend between 700mm - 1000mm. Any hints/advice would be greatly appreciated by both me and the minister for war and finance.

ou will find the above eBay store useful and well priced with drawer runners . I have not purchased any but several friends have and have been very happy with the service and product.

I bought 2x 1000 mm and 2 x 900 mm drawer runners from Peregrine. They were rated at 100kgs.

They have been perfect and quality. I have had a 50l fridge and 2 tubs on one pair while the other pair have had a heavy tool box and either 2 tubs or a 2kva Honda sitting on them.

My construction was very basic. I used 2 lengths of aluminum angle to which I bolted the runners and bolted to the tray floor. Then I cut a piece of about 20 mm marine ply and screwed that to the runners as well as putting some tie down points on the marine ply.

Highly recommended.

I did the same as DW but mine were heavier duty and have 130kgs of AGM batteries in a steel frame sitting on them in the Oka, have handled the weight well with no problems. They are rarely used/slid out but just sit there locked in most of the time.

Contact Noel K (NT) , he made his own and it drops down lower when it slides out, he might give you the measurements , his is for an Engel but it could be made for any fridge.
