AIR MOTION Schock Metal AIR MOTION - next generation of smooth sliding

AIR MOTION® - next generation of smooth sliding.


Extremely smooth-running, comfortable operation, high load capacity and long operating life – is this what you need from a sliding system? Then now is the time to find out more about our AIR MOTION smooth-action slides which now include many new comfort features.

AIR MOTION drawer slides are primarily characterized by the perceived quality throughout the system based on a particularly smooth and quiet action, comfortable operation, and a long, maintenance-free operating life. A significant factor in the comfortable running quality is an ingenious mix of materials for the ball set and special stopper systems. This results in a smooth and consistent motion sequence which could otherwise only be achieved with mechanically synchronized slide rails.

All AIR MOTION full extension slides can be configured with an over-extension, providing full, unrestricted access to the pulled out module. As ready-to-fit units, they can be used independently of a frame solution. Their left/right interchangeability provides further technical benefits in terms of design, production and disposition.


  • Smooth and quiet action
    AIR MOTION® smooth-action slides provide precise and silent operation with high load capacity. At the same time they meet all the requirements for sliding systems in terms of strength and durability.
  • Comfortable feel
    Integral comfort features such as soft stopper systems or damped ‘soft close’ systems provide perceived quality.
  • Synchro-effect
    AIR MOTION ball bearing slides are characterized by a smooth and consistent operation which is virtually the same as a synchronized system.
  • High-quality appearance
    AIR MOTION slides are individually configured for your series production. They provide perceptible added value, triggering positive buying impulses by your customers.

Pull-out drawers and shelves slide comfortably thanks to AIR MOTION smooth-action slides and move smoothly and safely every single time, even under high loads. Located out of sight under the shelves, the ball bearing slides are provided with special fixings for tool-free assembly.

Multi-temperature wine cabinets

Wine cooler manufacturers are demanding customers, particularly when it comes to comfort, load ratings and quiet running characteristics.

Available with optional soft stop, the wine bottles move extremely smoothly to their final position while the slides are a stylish addition to the design due to their powder-coated surface.
