  • Completely customizable, open storage with Smartcube and YouK

Archdale, North Carolina, USA, August 25, 2020 – The kitchen is the heart of the home. It always has been — but now, even more so. Customers are spending more time at home, and as a craftsman, you want to give them a kitchen that’s stacked with the latest products and organizational systems which will keep them happy for years to come. That’s where we come in.

Although we can’t be together in-person, your kitchen projects don’t need to suffer, nor should your customers. With the Häfele America Co. Virtual IWF Trade Show we’ll show you the latest products for the kitchen space. So you, your customers and your projects all win.

Making its debut is Fineline™ Drawer Organization in the stunning black ash finish. It’s no secret that Fineline kitchen organization offers unparalleled storage functionality and style. This system of compartments, components and accessories makes drawers completely customizable. From cutlery trays, dividers, knife blocks and aluminum foil holders in standard drawers to plate racks, pegboards and wine racks in deep drawers. And more. Now available in birch, walnut and the all-new black ash.

“Dark finishes — to either complement or differentiate — are gaining in popularity with designers and installers,” says Daniel Tripp, category manager for Häfele. “Adding Fineline Drawer Organization in black ash marries all the functionality of Fineline with a unique finish that’s sure to see demand for years to come.”

Fineline isn’t the only product line going dark. Kesseböhmer kitchen organization products from Häfele like the LAVIDO Pantry Pull-Out, Tandem Solo Pantry Unit and LeMans II set for blind corners is shown in the sublimely trendy anthracite finish in our virtual display. Our new Short Base Pull-Out is outfitted with the Kesseböhmer YouBoxx system — a great way to store everything from knives and spices to teabags and pasta.

Open storage is in. Why should everything be hidden behind a cabinet door? Häfele comes to you with two, highly sought-after options for the kitchen, bath or anywhere else where open storage could add functionality and accent.

The all-new, Kesseböhmer YouK Shelf System from Häfele brings storage simplicity and open shelving perfection to projects. From kitchens and bathrooms to entertainment centers, butler’s pantries and home offices, YouK ladders make open storage easy. With conveniently sized side heights of 21 5/8” – 87” the YouK system ladders can be mounted anywhere and even paired with optional adjustable feet. Its black finish easily matches styles with a variety of designs and customer-supplied shelving options. Your choice of 12 5/8” or 7 7/8” depths are available.

The modular Smartcube Open Storage System can be as small as one shelf unit on a wall, multiplied exponentially to fit any project or even paired with casework, islands or other furniture for sleekly modern open shelving. Woodworkers can customize their projects by cutting runs to their preferred length and using their own shelving material to match their choice of black and stainless steel look finishes. 

Kitchens get dirty — especially kitchen floors. The Slimline Sweepovac Kitchen Vacuum shown in our virtual display is designed to be built into any toe kick. The Sweepovac allows users to simply sweep whatever needs to be cleaned up into a pile, activate the vacuum via the gentle press of a toe and then move on with your day. The unit comes with a reusable dust bag and features an available, optional hose. 

An easy way to open practically any base pull-out is the Hailo Libero 2.0 Auto Opener, an electronic, hands-free opening mechanism. Because sometimes using your hands just isn’t an option. The mechanism operates the pull-out via a foot sensor or with an optional remote control making it ultra-friendly. It can also be used in face frame applications when the unit is blocked out and activated with the optional remote. Users can even customize opening force and other features via an easy-to-use mobile app.

Bringing the contents of hard to reach places to you is simple with the Kesseböhmer iMOVE Pull Down Unit. Pulling gently on the handle delivers a perfect sequence of movement bringing the contents of the cabinet to you. With easy installation and stay-put functionality, you can pull the shelfing half-way or the entire way, it will stay put wherever you leave it, even when empty.

Throughout the kitchen, Häfele is featuring the new Canvas texture non-slip mats which sleekly secure products in place.
Handle trash, recycling or both with the Hailo Euro Cargo 45 Waste Bin from Häfele. The system comes with your choice of one or two bins for all waste needs. The Euro Cargo 45 has been upgraded with new and improved heavy duty, synchronized runners with overtravel. The new side skirts hide the runners, providing an updated and sleek design.

The Cleaning Caddy is ideal for storing sponges, cleaning supplies and anything you may need to carry from room-to-room as it serves as a detachable cleaning caddy. The caddy nestles perfectly under the sink and fully extends for accessibility. For under-sink protection, we’re showing the new black/stainless steel Cabinet Protector Mat. Cut-to-size to fit in any sink cabinet, the unique dimples collect up to a gallon of water per six square feet.

Be sure to join Häfele to learn about all these products and more during the company’s Virtual IWF Trade Show.
