A functional, practical and good-looking shelf fitting
Unveiled at the Interzum 2015, the “iMove” is an innovative shelf fitting that swings downwards and out so that the contents of the upper shelves are instantly accessible. It’s functional, practical and good-looking. Already with an “iF product design award 2015” to its credit, the iMove is yet another example of Kesseböhmer’s ability to come up with innovative solutions which combine outstanding functionality with superb design.
This new wall unit fitting is a typical Kesseböhmer product. The single or double shelf fitting glides down and completely out of the unit with a smooth, effortless movement, bringing the contents of the upper shelf or shelves within easy reach for the user. The wall unit’s bottom shelf does not move, making it the place to store heavier items. “iMove” makes sure that everything stored in a wall unit is 100% accessible all the time.
Users can store items weighing up to 8 kg on the “iMove” shelves. No force adjustment is necessary. Because the lower zone of the wall unit, and especially the bottom shelf, does not move, but is not blocked by the “iMove”, it makes good ergonomic sense to store heavy items here – like stacks of plates.
Thanks to the integrated spring force support, the “iMove’s” downward and upward movements are extremely smooth, easy and fluid. Empty or fully loaded, the “iMove” operates reliably and safely. Users grasp the hand-friendly handle, attached to the railing, to exert the light pressure required for the downward or upward movement. Finger-pinch protection ensures entirely safe operation.
One special feature – the railing that stops stored items falling out, drops down automatically as the fitting moves downwards and out. As a result, there’s no obstacle to quick and easy access.
If required, the fully-extended “iMove” can be locked into its end position, keeping all the contents safely and reliably accessible. Users then have both hands free to load and unload the wall unit.
“iMove” assembly and installation: quick, easy and zero error.
The “iMove” fitting is available as one- or two-shelf variants. The single tray set (one shelf) is supplied for wall units 50, 60, 80 and 90 cm wide and from 470 mm high. depending on installation configuration. The fitting is equally right behind hinged fronts or behind lifter front panels, like Kesseböhmer’s “FREEfold” lifter (or Blum’s “Aventos HF” fitting). The double tray set, with two shelves, for wall units 710 mm and higher, is available for 50 or 60 cm wide wall units.
