The role of horizontal sliders in RVs
Recreational vehicles come in all shapes and sizes. From the large tour-bus sized RVs to the small travel trailers, there are many different types out there for campers to choose from. Regardless of size, RV manufacturers are always looking to maximize the space of the RV for their consumers so that they enhance their comfort in the great outdoors.
One of the ways that manufacturers maximize the space in RVs is through horizontal sliders. Slide-out storage mechanisms can be hand-controlled for less energy consumption, or driven by an electric motor for ease of use. These systems allow manufacturers to add pop-out or slide-out compartments for increased storage space and potential for add-ons for large RVs, as well as increased living space and room for windows on smaller RVs.
Manufacturers of compact RVs and travel trailers especially are looking to maximize the space available for consumers looking to reduce their footprint at a campsite. Large living spaces mean more room within a more compact vehicle, while more windows leads to better lighting and ventilation. Horizontal sliders help RV manufacturers achieve these goals with their space.
Decron is a trusted metal fabricator of many different metal products for recreational vehicles, including horizontal sliders and we have plenty of experience in producing them for our partners in RV manufacturing. These parts often undergo a great deal of stress from consistent use, environmental conditions, and general wear as the different components slide against each other. For proper operation, the components should also be precise so that the sliders can move without interference.
Decron’s capabilities range from prototyping to production, with everything our partners need for the fabrication of their metal horizontal sliders including laser cutting, metal forming, welding, and more. We also offer in-house power coating as well for a durable, corrosion resistant finish. Metal parts like horizontal sliders and slide-outs are often exposed to a considerable amount of duress and a variety of weather conditions. Powder coating finishes protect and enhance the part, offering long-lasting durability.If you’re looking for a metal fabricator of components for the RV industry, look no further!
