These are indeed heavy duty. Note that the slides weigh about 2.5 lbs. for each side. That''s 5 lb. per drawer just for the slides. The installation instructions that come with these could be a lot better. More descriptive names for the parts would be great. The instructions only cover installation in European cabinets with pre-drilled metric hole patterns and existing face-frame cabinets. You will have to do some adjusting (and uttering some expletives) in order to get them right, especially if you haven''t installed these before. I was installing these in some Chinese cabinets mostly made of cheap MDF type material so I had to add plywood reinforcement to the cabinet walls to mount these slides. Bottom line is that these are excellent drawer slides that will hold a full lateral file drawer full of files with no problem.

The K&V 8500 drawer glides have been my "go-to" glides for any heavy duty commercial application. They support up to 150 pounds with ease. Highly recommended!
