Where Some See Openings, Häfele Sees Opportunity

Archdale, North Carolina, USA, August 22, 2018

  • How it opens is sometimes greater than what it opens
  • The all-new Salice Wind Lift System brings innovation to the cabinetry
  • Up, not out with Häfele’s Free Flap fittings

Every opening of a cabinet is a chance to innovate. And IWF 2018 attendees will discover all this and more with Häfele America Co., the leading manufacturer and supplier of furniture and architectural components, in booth #1840.

The Salice Wind Lift System is one of the latest products that brings harmony to cabinets. This unique, compact and versatile system delivers a smooth and perfectly controlled lift that your customers will love. It’s suitable for a wide range of applications including kitchen cabinets, living room, bedroom and office furniture.

“The Salice Wind System is the perfect stay for any application,” said Daniel Tripp, category manager for Häfele. “It’s available in soft close or push-to-open and covers a wide variety of door sizes. The wide array of finishes allows you to tailor it to your project.”

Häfele’s Free family of flap fittings allows for a wide range of movement. Cabinet doors can be lifted, tilted, swiveled or folded above the user. This unique action means the entire contents of the cabinet are fully available each and every time it’s opened. An added bonus is that even in narrow, galley-style kitchens activity never stops for a swinging cabinet door. Some versions can even open and close with the touch of a finger.

A little tight on space? The Eku Frontino and Salice Slider S 20 combine outstanding functionality and space-saving prowess. These coplanar door hardware sets are available for both upper and base cabinets with integrated soft open and close.

“Coplanar doors give you a unique opening with beautifully executed design,” said Michael Schreiber, category manager for Häfele. “These hardware sets are naturally space-saving and offer a unique option over any traditional swinging cabinet door.”

If your customer is looking for a more stylish look the Clipo for wood or glass is an option for stylishly enclosing cabinetry. This innovative hardware is one of the most comprehensive solutions for cabinets making the glass frameless and suspended. Allowing for a modern and elegant look, this space-saving product delivers a modular system to best suit the users’ needs.

The sleek Miniwinch and Microwinch for wood doors can be easily installed with just a few screws. Fitting inside the smallest of cabinetry, these stays occupy little space inside the cabinet. They can be installed horizontally or vertically giving the perfect fit, no matter the application.
