Telescopic Ball Bearing Drawer Slide

IS Standard : IS 17954:2023

A telescopic ball bearing drawer slide is a precision-engineered hardware component used in furniture and cabinetry to facilitate smooth and effortless drawer movement. These slides consist of two or more telescoping metal rails equipped with ball bearings, which enable the drawers to extend fully from the cabinet or enclosure. The ball bearings within the slides ensure smooth gliding motion, allowing users to open and close drawers with minimal effort and noise. Telescopic ball bearing drawer slides come in various sizes and load capacities to accommodate different drawer dimensions and weights. They are widely favored for their durability, reliability, and ease of installation, making them essential components in modern furniture design and construction. Whether used in kitchen cabinets, office desks, or storage units, telescopic ball bearing drawer slides provide convenient access and efficient organization of contents while enhancing the overall functionality and aesthetics of the furniture piece.

IS 17954:2023 is a crucial standard as it establishes the essential criteria for telescopic ball bearing drawer slides, ensuring their quality, reliability, and functionality. This standard delineates the specifications concerning materials, dimensions, finish, and functional performance of telescopic ball bearing drawer slides, encompassing various extension types. By adhering to IS 17954:2023, manufacturers ensure that the drawer slides they produce meet stringent quality standards, guaranteeing their durability, smooth operation, and load-bearing capacity. Compliance with this standard not only ensures the seamless functionality of drawer slides but also promotes consistency and uniformity in their design and performance. It is important to note that IS 17954:2023 does not cover the requirements for soft closing drawer slides, focusing on telescopic ball bearing drawer slides.

Note: Obtaining the ISI/BIS Certification is a mandatory requirement for manufacturers of telescopic ball bearing drawer slides to sell their products in the Indian market.

In India, manufacturers must obtain ISI/BIS certification for their Telescopic Ball Bearing Drawer Slides to sell these products legally. This certification, mandated by Indian regulations, ensures compliance with specific quality and safety standards established by the BIS for the production and distribution of drawer slides equipped with telescopic ball bearings. Without this certification, manufacturers face legal repercussions and obstacles in accessing the Indian market. Obtaining ISI/BIS certification is a regulatory requirement and a crucial step for manufacturers to demonstrate the reliability, durability, and safety of their telescopic ball bearing drawer slides. This certification process underscores the importance of ensuring the integrity and performance of hardware components, instilling confidence among consumers and stakeholders in the furniture industry regarding its compliance with Indian standards for usage and distribution.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
