Designed with small spaces in mind, apartment ranges can be as narrow as 50cm wide or up to 60cm wide. There are more expensive models, such as the 24-inch flat roof electric series, but many are offered at an affordable price for low-cost installations with basic features. The depth is typically around 24 to 26 ", not including the handle. The height varies depending on whether there is a backrest or not. The height from the floor to the top of the series is usually about 34 to 36", but the total height can be approximately 44 "including a rear guard.

While older sliding units typically had a rim around the hob that overlaps the countertop on both sides to give a built-in appearance, this feature is less common today with major appliance brands. The old sliders were also shallower than the typical countertop and required a chunk of padding behind the stove. Today many sliders are full depth (about 25-28 inches) and this piece of padding is not necessary.
