They’re the Bermuda Triangles of university living: sock-gobbling residence hall dryers, essay-eating file folders, and worst of all: the nether regions at the back of your desk or dresser drawers. At University Loft, we might not be able to help you keep your socks paired up or your homework handy, but we can make it virtually impossible to lose valuables in the back of the drawer. How? Full-extension drawer glides.
Unlike a lot of other commercially available furniture for university housing, University Loft desks and dressers are sturdy and ultra-functional, right down to the drawer hardware. You see, while ordinary drawers might open only two-thirds of the way (or even less), University Loft college dormitory furniture drawers open up to give you access to everything — and we mean everything! — inside. Our full-extension glides make it possible. It’s a thing of beauty.
Did I mention that University Loft’s full-extension drawers open smoothly and easily? Or that they are super strong? It’s true. The secret is in the three-section, ball bearing construction. Take a look at this 5-second video and you’ll appreciate the smooth action of the full-extension drawer glide. What might not be obvious from the video is the drawer strength you’ll enjoy with these glides. They’re rated to hold up to 100 lbs. Like I said, load ’em up!
So you’ll never lose anything in the back of the drawer again. Of course, if the dog eats your homework…well, you’re on your own with that one.
