Question: What happens when you take years of experience designing, engineering and building flap fittings and incorporate all you’ve learned into one amazing piece of hardware?
Answer: The all-new Free Space flap fitting from Häfele. This single flap series covers up to 85 percent of all flap applications. The all-new Häfele Free Space is on display at the Association of Woodworking and Furnishing Suppliers (AWFS) Fair in booth 4422.
“We wanted to create a product which took everything we know about flap fittings and built that knowledge and expertise into one product,” says Steve Hubbard, Häfele America Co. Category Manager. “Häfele Free Space is the result—a groundbreaking piece of hardware which can be used in practically any project.”
This flap fitting is stronger, faster, more compact and more efficient than any flap fitting of its kind. The Free Space gives cabinets a smooth and silent operation and features soft close, all with a clean design. It can be left in any position while open and holds doors up to 42 pounds with cabinet heights up to 26 inches. It works for a wide variety of cabinetry allowing for infinite flexibility in cabinet design and construction.
Free Space is compact giving the user more storage space in the cabinet. When opened, Free Space allows the cabinet door to move up, rather than opening from the side, reducing the need to move around cabinet doors and freeing up space. It cuts down on installation time and mounts with just one pre-mounted screw.
