No, these are standard drawer slides that are used in furniture. There's no good way to attach them to the rails. I've never had a problem with the #8 screws I use to attach them. Each

The bottom rail is screwed to the bottom of the cabinet, so it's fully supported. The upper slides are attached to the side walls. Each pair of slides are rated for up to 100 lbs, and they are secured to the sidewalls with 4 screws each.
