Once installed, have you seen any problem with sand and grit getting onto the slide plates and causing problems?

We have only seen this in applications when the upper slide plate is the same size as the lower slide plate. We recommend that the upper slide plate is larger than the lower plate in order to avoid this occurrence. As long as this bottom slide plate is not exposed, this problem is usually a non-issue.
