Knape & Vogt has launched a new heavy-duty slide series with soft-close technology. Used for wide drawers with high weight load capacity, the company says the 8650/8655FM series is a first in its lineup of precision ball-bearing drawer slides. The force management (FM) technology is a KV-patented design that manages pull force and results in a drawer that opens smoothly and closes softly and securely with no rebound. Recommended for use in drawers up to 36 in. wide, the slides are designed on a 1/2-in. profile and feature a butterfly lever disconnect for ease of installation. The 8650FM is available in lengths from 14 to 28 in. while the 8655FM is available in 18 to 28 in. lengths.
