Accuride Int’l debuts heavy-duty, lightweight slide

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. – Accuride International, a designer and manufacturer of sliding hardware, has announced the U.S. launch of its AL4160 Super Heavy-Duty Aluminum Slide ( – a strong but light solution that combines a full aluminum body with stainless steel components for diverse transportation and industrial applications.

“We designed the AL4160 to address a market need for a slide that supports heavy loads and performs in harsh environments but also is lightweight, low-profile and competitively-priced,” said Sid Kalantar, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Accuride. “Our U.S. introduction follows eight years of successful customer use in Europe.”

The AL4160 slide joins Accuride’s AL series of super heavy-duty aluminum-and-steel slides.

Key benefits and features of the AL4160 slide include:

  • Lightweight and a high load rating (up to 661 lbs./300 kg)
  • Corrosion resistance – essential for moist and humid environments
  • A low profile (1.04” of side space)
  • Full extension

  • Generator and battery compartments in large vehicles, including fire trucks and recreational vehicles
