More Power to You: Häfele’s Charging and Powering Solutions Expand to Meet Ever-Growing Demand
Archdale, North Carolina, USA, August 24, 2016
Admit it. We’re all a little power hungry these days. Mobile devices, tablets and every other battery-powered gizmo needs power to keep up with our increasingly busy lives. This is precisely why Häfele America Co., one of America’s leading suppliers of power solutions and furniture hardware components, has expanded and refined our charging range to keep those gadgets at full power.
“The need for smart, flexible charging and power solutions has really defined and propelled this category for us,” explains Steve Hubbard, product manager for Häfele. “From woodworkers integrating power outlets into furniture to kitchen designers on the hunt for multiple outlets and USB ports to charge today’s technology, our product range has grown in both options and aesthetics.”
Keeping true to Häfele’s quest to make the interior of cabinets and drawers just as beautiful and functional as the exterior are in-drawer charging and powering outlets from Docking Drawer. Available in standard outlet configurations with both AC outlets and USB ports or GFCI varieties, Docking Drawer outlets include special hardware which mounts to the rear of drawers allowing the cords to remain untangled no matter the drawer position. Dedicating a drawer to charging ensures countertops remain clutter-free. Perfect for home or business, Docking Drawer can easily be used in kitchens, baths and closets as well as hair salons and retail store fronts.
Builders of both residential and commercial office furniture should certainly take note of the charging options presented by Häfele at this year’s IWF display as we’ve come a long way from using outlet strips under desks to feed thirsty devices. Today’s work environments incorporate everything from simple, pop up USB charging ports which retract with the push of a button to slightly more stylish, elaborate units with three outlets and two USB charging ports.
As these products have made their way into our homes and offices while hotels, airports and other crowded venues have quickly followed suit to include easy to use yet dynamic charging stations for their patrons and visitors. For wherever there is people, mobile devices and their need for power will most certainly follow. And Häfele is here to help you power them.
