Better Living with Functional Hardware From Häfele

Archdale, North Carolina, USA, January 21, 2020

  • Designers, meet Matrix — Häfele’s all-new functional hardware ecosystem
  • Heavy duty applications demand hardware to match. No matter the size of the space.
  • The X-Series Bracket System means custom storage, anywhere


Regardless of the project we’re working on, we can always do better. And it’s this simple philosophy which has guided Häfele America Co., one of America’s leading suppliers of functional hardware and furniture hardware components, to continually improve its own-developed and exclusive assortment selection of drawer box systems, drawer slides and more to best serve the design and builder community.

Among these amazing components which are rarely seen, but add movement, functionality and style to any project with a cabinet or drawer is the all-new, Häfele-exclusive Matrix Box Drawer System.

“Being an industry innovator and manufacturer of functional hardware systems like Matrix means we typically have much more to offer designers,” says Karen Armour, category manager for Häfele. “When they have a need, we can answer with products which meet their project design aesthetics and budgets too.”  

Making its KBIS debut, the Häfele Matrix Box Slim A is an elegant, streamlined thin wall drawer box system with integrated soft close as well as optional push-to-open. Available finishes include white and anthracite. The top-of-the-line, German-manufactured Häfele Matrix Box P drawer box system features simple assembly and easy adjustment as well as unrivaled design and flexibility in application. An all-new, optional push-to-open function adds even more value to designs. The Matrix Box P offers the widest range of accessories and can be had in 110 lbs. or 154 lbs. Available Matrix Box P finishes include white, anthracite and champagne.

When it comes to cabinet hinges, Häfele’s KBIS 2020 kitchen and garage vignettes showcase the Salice Silentia+ Soft Close Concealed Hinge — a dynamic piece of hardware with more features than almost anything else on the market. Each hinge has miniature, liquid damped Smove pistons built into the cup … in addition to a soft close adjustment switch which allows you to adjust the rate of closure. Don’t believe us when we say it’s amazing? Stop by our booth and check it out for yourselves. Häfele’s micro-living display highlights the Grass TIOMOS hinge, a family of hinges for practically any application which offers optional soft-close or self-close functions.

Other functional hardware innovations prominently displayed in Häfele’s KBIS 2020 dynamic micro-living display include:

The Grass Vionaro Drawer System shown in graphite finish brings simple, clean lines in an ultra-chic package. Vionaro offers an incredible level of easy, tool free adjustment with under mounted Grass Dynapro slides featuring built in synchronization. Additional available finishes include silver gray and white.

Having the ability to move an entire section of a countertop for use as a table calls for a very special piece of hardware. In this application, Häfele relied on the Fulterer FR 777 Bottom Mounted Pull-Out Cabinet Slide. Offering full extension and a weight capacity of up to 440 lb., this piece of hardware makes our micro-living display truly convertible.

If you’ve ever struggled to fit a tall cereal box in a smaller space, we’ve got a solution for you: the Century X-Series Bracket System from Häfele is interchangeable with tool-free adjustability. With a simple slide/swing motion the slides are disengaged from the pilasters and conveniently moved up or down to accommodate pantry items. X-Series Bracket Kits are available in standard, full or pantry heights with pilaster widths of 1-1/4” or 2-1/2”. They can be cut if needed for any height and conveniently clear face frame cabinets and hinges making installation a breeze.
