And the functional hardware featured at IWF 2018 by Häfele America Co., one of America’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of functional hardware and furniture hardware components, coupled with your skill and imagination are all you need.
From brilliantly designed drawer slides which feature soft close and push-to-open to drawer box systems which amaze to hinges with so much built-in functionality you’ll wonder where they’ve been all your life, visitors to IWF booth 1840 will visit curiously and leave inspired.
“From the master tradesman to the journeyman, everyone is going to find something in our booth they haven’t seen before,” says Karen Armour, category manager for Häfele. “The functional hardware products we have to share at IWF demonstrate an unparalleled level of dynamic innovation across all product types. And it goes without saying that we’re really excited to share these with the trades.”
Recent functional hardware additions include:
Drawer Box Systems
One of the sleekest pieces of hardware you’ll find in Häfele’s 2018 IWF booth is the European-designed Grass Vionaro Drawer System in white. This year’s offerings now include all the standard drawer heights designers love to work with in every finish. The Grass Vionaro 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 graphite.
Häfele’s MX Drawer System is the installer’s preferred option for kitchens, bathrooms, offices, stores and beyond. This European-style, double walled drawer system features sleekly designed standard and deep depth drawers on high-quality runners. Available MX finishes include white, anthracite and champagne. Installers will love its easy installation and no-nonsense adjustability. Customers will love the MX’s beauty coupled with years of trouble-free performance.
Drawer slides are typically the workhorses of any drawer system configuration. As well as one of the greatest opportunities to add functionality and true innovation to any project. This is precisely why Häfele partners with industry-leading innovators to offer the broadest selection of drawer slide options with 2D and 3D adjustability, weight capacities which can nimbly take on some of the widest island drawers produced and still feature soft close, push-to-open and even full drawer access.
Closet designers and installers will also love an all-new Closet Slides especially for them. It’s easy to install, works in a variety of applications and offers years of trouble-free performance. Available for frameless cabinet in closet industry standard 14”, 16” and 18” lengths, these full extension slide sets can accommodate drawer material up to 16 mm (5/8”), include integrated soft close and front fixing clips with 3D adjustment. With weight capacities of 35 kg (75 lbs./pair), these are a great choice for any casework closet or storage project.
Two drawer slide options featured at IWF which each offer integrated soft close and push-to-open are the Grass Dynapro and the Salice Futura. The Dynapro comes in standard (100 lbs.) and heavy duty (132 lbs.) configurations with sizes ranging from 9” to 30” as well as 2D and 3D adjustability. The Futura can handle weights up to 75 lbs., is available in sizes ranging 9” – 21” and comes with built-in 3D adjustability.
Designers of any space will love the bottom mounted Salice Shelf which allows you to install a pull-out shelf practically anywhere without having to trim it to fit between slides. Think about it: that means that, within reason almost any material or item can be turned into an extendable shelf. Just two runners hold up to 75 lbs. and four runners hold up to a maximum of 100 lbs.
Häfele offers both the Accuride 3634 and 3634EC or “Easy Close” drawer slide. These durably constructed slides hold a great deal of weight—whether bottom or side mounted—and offer 1” of over-travel, allowing for complete access to drawer contents. These silent, quiet operating slides come in 12” – 28” lengths and can accommodate up to a 42” wide “island” drawer. Available finishes include clear zinc and electroplate black options.
Concealed. Face frame. Specialty. Institutional. And more. That’s the story of Häfele’s IWF 2018 hinge display. You’ve got the making of doors which swing, soft close and push-to-open for every project the trades have working.
The all-new Salice Silentia+ Soft Close Concealed Hinge—this thing seriously seems like it has more standard features than some cars sold on the market today. 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.
The all-new Air Hinge from Salice is a groundbreaking piece of hardware. Mortised into both the cabinetry and the door it closes, this hinge delivers full functionality in a stylish, discreet package. Fully adjustable in three directions by way of an eccentric cam, the AIR features integrated soft close and is ideal for high-end kitchens, bathrooms, living- and bedroom furniture and display cabinets. Available finishes include nickel-plated or titanium which is an ideal complement for both solid white and dark cabinetry.
Schools. Government buildings. Garages. Offices. These are the environments where—day in and day out—hardware is put to the test. For that, Häfele offers the Aximat 300 hinge—a hinge that has been tested way before making its way to these environments and has earned its standing as a Grade 1 “institutional hinge” ensuring years of durable, trouble-free performance.
Something Altogether Different
If you’ve ever struggled to fit a tall cereal box in a smaller space, we’ve got a solution for you: the all-new X-Series Bracket System is interchangeable and features 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.
