Archdale, North Carolina, USA, January 31, 2023 – Here’s the thing about functional hardware: it’s in every project, design and space we build in, yet it sometimes goes unnoticed. Hinges, drawer slides, drawer systems – always working behind the scenes to ensure every cabinet door and drawer mechanism reflects the same quality of your cabinetry. At KBIS 2023, Häfele’s selection of functional hardware is being pulled into the spotlight, where booth visitors will discover: project greatness comes from within.
Selected as a 2023 Best of KBIS finalist, the Riverso Two-Way Drawer Slide brings innovation and amazement to standard drawer applications. This dynamic undermount drawer slide system allows users to have complete opening access of the same drawer from both sides of an island, peninsula, room divider or stand-alone table.
“Two-way access to a single drawer is something designers have dreamt of, but couldn’t easily execute until now,” says Karen Armour category manager for Häfele. “Adding Riverso to our catalog creates the opportunity for more efficient, thoughtfully-planned designs in applications like kitchen and closet islands, retail counters, healthcare environments and more.”
Riverso also features integrated soft close and can even be paired with Tipmatic push-to-open hardware on one side, allowing the drawer to be opened without a handle.
Appearing in every vignette of Häfele’s KBIS 2023 display – kitchen, pantry, closet, office – is the extremely versatile, universally stylish Matrix Drawer System by Häfele.
The Matrix Box S is a European-style, double-walled drawer system featuring full extension synchronized soft close runners. The Matrix Box Slim A is an elegant, streamlined thin wall drawer box system with integrated soft close. The top-of-the-line, German-manufactured Matrix Box P drawer box system features unrivaled design and flexibility in application – with the widest range of add-on accessories like side railing and height extension panels. This system also features a heavy-duty weight rating and can accommodate 110 lbs. or 154 lbs.
Offering all the features you need from a high-quality drawer slide system – without the price tag – are our Häfele Matrix UM A35 Concealed Undermount Slides, being displayed in both the kitchen and pantry vignettes. These full extension drawer slides offer a 75 lbs. weight capacity with integrated soft close – making them a perfect choice for a wide range of drawer applications and storage needs. The concealed undermount design makes installation easy and provides a clean look which accents practically any cabinetry application – from standard drawers to roll-out trays. Handling wider, heavier drawers with ease and discretion in the kitchen island display are the all-new Salice F70 Heavy Duty Undermount Drawer Slides. These full extension, fully synchronized slides offer integrated soft close and a weight capacity of 154 lbs. – plus toolless height, side and depth adjustment in both standard and push-to-open versions.
When it comes to cabinet hinges, our partners at Salice know how to get it right, every time. Featured in our kitchen and home office displays is the Silentia+ Soft Close Concealed Hinge. This dynamic piece of hardware always impresses – offering personalized close features you won’t find elsewhere. Each hinge has miniature, liquid-damped Smove pistons built into the cup, in addition to a soft close adjustment switch which allows easy adjustment to the rate of closure. In applications where narrow door profiles come into play, like the custom-built hutch in Häfele’s kitchen display, the Salice Excenthree 3-Cam Concealed Hinge is a great choice. Featuring integrated soft close and a small, 11 mm cup depth, this face frame hinge offers perfect door alignment with three automatic cam adjustments.
Also demonstrating amazing performance in cabinet opening and closing, as well as drawer storage and function – the Grass TIOMOS Concealed Hinge and Grass Nova Pro Scala Drawer System. Offering 3D adjustment, an optional self-close function, along with three adjustable soft close options invisibly integrated into the arm, TIOMOS is a dynamic hinge solution for practically any door application. Bringing stylish functionality to Häfele’s metal drawer range – the double-wall Nova Pro Scala system features a timeless, yet futuristic design coupled with amazing quality, stability and flawless running performance. Both Grass hardware systems can be found on display in Häfele’s home office vignette.
