Slide Mounting Brackets

Bracket mounting is a versatile and durable option for rack-mounting applications. When you attach a bracket to the slide rail stationary member, it acts as an adapter between the slide rail and the electronic rack structure rails. The mounting bracket will keep the slide rail in the correct position, supporting the front and back of the slide rail. Drawer slide brackets also allow you to easily turn a side-mounted slide into a top- or bottom-mounted slide while still maintaining the slide's original load capacity. They may also provide greater rail-to-rail depth mounting beyond the length of the overall slide rail. This versatility allows you greater control and flexibility with your racks so you can adjust them to suit your project's specific needs.

Types of Mounting Brackets for Slides


Recessed and non-recessed mounting brackets accommodate various situations, attaching to the front or the back of the rail surface. The recessed brackets have a Joggle Bend, ideal for restricted spaces, while the non-recessed brackets have a 90-degree bend.


To accompany the brackets, Jonathan Engineered Solutions also offers a selection of short and long bar nuts, providing a convenient way to attach brackets. They contain a series of holes, replacing the need for individual hardware items. Using two brackets of the same length is generally best, though a mix is sometimes possible in specific cases.


Bracket Mounting Options


Jonathan Engineered Solutions offers brackets with multiple options for mounting. How you mount the bracket will depend on the height of the slide. Most rack mount slide rails attach on the bracket’s centerline. Some will mount on locations slightly above or below the middle of the bracket while others attach to areas farthest from the center.


It’s common in some installations to have the front of the slide on the centerline of the bracket and the back of the slide connected to the other locations on the bracket.
