Progressive reduction of urban living spaces, new lifestyles and work models, growing need for customization of furniture: these are the themes addressed by Hettich in its stand at interzum Colonia where it presented ideas to respond to every request of its customers.
Customization with the AvanTech YOU system
The theme of customization is becoming increasingly important for manufacturers of furniture and kitchens. To meet this need, Hettich has developed the AvanTech YOU system, which brings drawers to a high level of customisation.
Characterised by an extremely linear minimalist style, AvanTech YOU offers drawers in which the screw heads or cover plates are completely invisible.
AvanTech YOU offers a wide range of customisation options: AvanTech YOU offers DesignCape drawers in aluminium, either anodized or with a stainless steel effect.
With its inlay, the AvanTech YOU system allows for all kinds of creative customisation: in glass or any other material.
The drawers can then be chosen with the design profiles in wood effect, stainless steel, aluminium or chrome from the simple snap-on assembly.
The AvanTech YOU system thus offers furniture and kitchen manufacturers the opportunity to stand out from the competition by using targeted solutions in response to customer needs. In addition, since all components of the platform concept can be easily combined with each other, the system is very economical.
AvanTech YOU offers the right solutions for those who also want to make generously sized furniture, without handles and with exclusive materials. While the application of handle-free design was previously limited by the weight or large format of the fronts, the problem is now solved with Push to open Silent with multiple synchronization. Thanks to this solution, two drawers open and close behind a single front with a reliable and gentle parallel movement.
TopLine XL: solid comfort for sliding doors
Hettich also presented at interzum a new system for particularly high and heavy sliding doors, TopLine XL, a device that allows you to open and close doors weighing up to 100 kg with extreme ease and delicacy. The specially developed castors allow a particular geometric stability to be maintained, giving a feeling of lightness.
Another technical innovation increases the comfort of the 3-leaf cupboards: the central door can be opened intuitively both to the left and to the right and slides with a gentle movement on both sides, reaching the final position without making noise.
The ultra-flat construction and the concealed integrated shock absorber make the new TopLine XL sliding door system practically invisible and harmoniously integrate it into the furnishing style. For a perfect finish, the sliding rail can also be enhanced with decorative bands available in three colours.
Installation is also particularly simple and reliable: the heavy fronts can be placed on the floor safely, quickly attached and adjusted with practical operations. The same ease of use and ease of installation can also be found in the TopLine M and TopLine L sliding door systems, which are ideal for small-scale cabinets.
