Draw runners?

Post by Meccarroll » Tue Sep 08, 2020 9:48 am

Hi all currently making this unit for a spare bedroom and need some under-mount draw runners. I am going to make a box for the draw and fix a front to it.

The dimensions are 530mm deep about 200mm high and about 800mm wide. It will only hold clothing and light items. Any suggestions?

TIA Mark

Got this sorted, I have ordered some Blum tandem, blumotion draw runners (full extension).

Buying these draw runners from main retailers the cost would be around £36 for a pair or more including p&p. Eventually I found a seller on eBay selling a set at £26 so made the purchase. It was the p&p that was putting up the price from the main retailers as they only seemed to use next day delivery and the charge was high for one item.

If you only have a hammer then everything looks like a nail

Stick with blum movento. Best there is and smooth closing action.

Accuride make good runners too depending on what you are using them for.

Just fit the Blum runners I ordered this morning and have got to say they were fairly simple to fit and work really nice.
