  • Patent number: 10159344
    Abstract: A pull-out drawer guide having a cabinet rail for attaching to a furniture cabinet, a drawer rail for attaching to a drawer, a roller carriage having rollers, which, during relative movement of the rails, roll on a guide face of the respective rail. The pull-out guide includes on the cabinet rail, an automatic retraction mechanism which, by means of a catch element, catches the drawer rail in a closure movement and moves it to a closed position relative to the cabinet rail. The cabinet rail has a stop element, and the drawer rail has an abutment element, wherein, at a catch position of the cabinet rail, a distance between the stop and abutment elements is smaller than a maximum length of movement of a coupling element of a force accumulator of the automatic retraction mechanism, the distance being parallel to a direction of movement of the drawer rail.

  • Publication number: 20160081473
    Abstract: A pull-out guide for guiding a drawer, having a cabinet rail for attaching to a furniture cabinet, and a drawer rail for attaching to a drawer, wherein a roller carriage is provided between the rails, the rollers of which during mutually relative movement of the rails roll on a guide face of the respective rail, and which roller carriage moves along these rails. In an extended state of the drawer rail, the roller carriage is positioned at the drawer-rail side end on the cabinet rail which lies therebelow. The roller carriage has a projecting support portion for supporting the drawer rail on the cabinet rail, which support portion in a completely extended state of the drawer rail is positioned in a region which lies outside a guide face on the cabinet rail, on which the rollers of the roller carriage roll and may move to the maximum extent.
