Where to buy slides (storage runners) in UK

Here's the type of thing I'm after but they don't post to UK.

900MM LOCKABLE FRIDGE SLIDE/RUNNER 125KG MEDIUM DUTY 4X4 DRAWER RUNNER | eBay

I haven't measured up yet, it is just an idea at the moment.

Anyone tried something similar, what do you find are the pros and cons?

I found local stores only carry short lengths. Measure up and see what your exact needs are. Rotal length , do you need 100% extension and what weight will it be asked to hold.

Accuride make all sorts but are expensive. I found a chap on ebay a while baxk selling 700mm slides for 20 quid. They are in my trailer and work quite well for light duty. rated to 60kg i think, have a look around, its a bit of a headache.

Thanks for the leads, I'll look into it in more detail. I can see that fixing them securely to be resistant to leveraged force upwards could be a pain because there are only carpeted boards resting on a frame covering a storage area where once there was folddown rear seats.
