Archdale, North Carolina August 13, 2014

Archdale, North Carolina, USA, August 13, 2014 – Häfele America Co., a leading supplier of furniture and architectural hardware components, will be showcasing its latest state-of-the-art functional hardware during the 2014 International Woodworking Fair (IWF) August 20 through 23 in Atlanta, Georgia. In booth 2317, Häfele will provide inspiration for how to customize cabinets, closets and kitchens with innovative storage solutions, decorative hardware and LED lighting.

"We’re proud to continue bringing high quality, cutting-edge products to market, which has been synonymous with the Häfele brand for decades,” said Paul K. Smith, president of Häfele America Co. “At IWF we will have a team of experts on hand to share their knowledge and work one-on-one with woodworkers and cabinet makers to fully understand their needs and help identify solutions.”

Häfele will feature fully accessorized kitchen, closet and garage vignettes where attendees can experience new and featured products in action, including:

LED Lighting
As the leader in LED lighting for cabinet, closet and retail applications, Häfele continues to expand its plug and play Loox LED lighting system with more than 20 new lights and switching options offered in 12V, 24V and 350mA systems. Häfele will demonstrate how cabinet makers can use its wide range of LED lighting to bring any storage space to life and increase functionality through energy-saving illumination.

Closet Accessories
The Motorized Wardrobe Lift is a must-have for any dream closet. It maximizes vertical storage and brings hard-to-reach items to users at the touch of a button. With a simple remote control, the lift drops down 30-50 in. to make stored items accessible to anyone regardless of height or strength. The standard version can hold up to 65 lbs. of clothing, while the Extend version can hold up to 70 lbs., which more than doubles the weight capacity of manual lifts.

Cabinet and Pantry Storage Solutions
To avoid pantry clutter and offer easy access to stored items, Häfele is well-known for its innovative storage solutions including the LeMans II and Twister corner units, and the new Lavido Pantry Pull-out. These cabinet accessories offer superior functionality, flexibility and aesthetics to take cabinet storage to a new level.

Decorative Hardware
With interior design trending toward transitional styling, new decorative hardware collections from Häfele combine classic and contemporary elements. With four new collections and expansions to the luxury Bella Italiana collection, Häfele is aligning its design options with consumer trends so cabinet makers can offer customers hardware that meets their desired style. Also new is the Antimicrobial collection, which inhibits the growth of bacteria on the hardware.

Lift-up Fittings and Sliding Door Hardware
Häfele offers a broad assortment of lift-up fittings and sliding hardware that are changing the way users think about opening cabinet and closet doors. Engineered to stay open in any position, the FREE Lift-Up Fittings move cabinet doors up and out of the way so users have constant access to items. Additionally, sliding door hardware like Frontino, a 2012 IWF Challengers Award winner, allows sliding cabinet doors to sit flush when closed and maximizes available space when open so users don’t have work around swinging cabinet doors.
