Hettich offers broad product portfolio
The trend towards sliding doors is unbroken. They are popular because they take up little space, not requiring the opening and closing action radius that hinged doors do. In addition to their convincing practical aspects, sliding doors also make impressive design elements that offer tremendous scope for creative design ideas. Slidingdoor fittings from Hettich cater to a wide range of functions and applications for virtually any type of storage – from the sideboards, shelf systems and bookcases to large wardrobes and hall units.
A broad repertoire of different fittings provides doors with smooth, easy running action and unrestricted freedom of movement regardless of how heavy and large they are, and irrespective of whether they are made entirely of wood, glass, plastic or metal or a trendy combination of materials. System technology permits vertical and horizontal applications for the living room, bedroom and dining room as well as for the kitchen and office.
The "TopLine 22" sliding-door fitting offers creative design freedom for large wardrobes and hall units. With this system, large and heavy doors can be moved almost effortlessly. "Silent System Flexible 80" provides unrelenting soft-closing performance that's unique. The technical principle behind soft closure slows down the closing movement of any sliding door weighing up to 80 kg. "Silent System Flexibel 50" is suitable for doors in weights of up to 50 kg and can be retrofitted by way of option.
The technically sophisticated "InLine" fitting system from Hettich provides the capability of designing sliding-door cupboards in such a way that all doors close in one plane to leave a flush surface. This not only looks good, it's also highly practical. On a three-door wardrobe, for example, the middle door can be opened and pushed to either side. To close the wardrobe, you either slide it back to its original position or push one of the other two doors into the centre. This means that door positions can be interchanged in any way you wish. By selecting different materials and colours in the design of a cupboard, consumers can change the fronts just as they please.
The "VerticoSynchro" vertical sliding-door fitting moves furniture doors up and down. In horizontal designs, the "HorizonSynchro" takes care of movement by synchronously sliding furniture doors to the left and right. Irrespective of the height or width of cabinet doors, the sliding-door fitting is rated for a maximum weight of 15 to 20 kg per door. "SlideLine 66", the single-track, bottom-running sliding-door fitting, is ideal for bookcases and shelf systems. The aluminium-frame, wooden or glass doors hug the front of the cabinet as they glide past, with two doors capable of crossing past each other directly.
Where large sliding doors are constructed from lightweight panels for wardrobes, the broad range of sliding-door fittings available from Hettich provides solutions that competently cater to many applications while efficiently taking account of the reduction in door weight. "hettinject" connecting technology makes easy work of using a variety of sliding-door fittings from Hettich, such as "TopLine 22" designed for large doors. Whereas the "hettinject" connecting fitting provides the basis for mounting sliding-door fittings to frameless lightweight panels, framed lightweight doors allow the fittings to be attached to the frame in the conventional way.
Sliding-door fittings from Hettich provide the furniture designer with immense creative freedom. They offer a wealth of options covering an extensive bandwidth of applications ranging from functional element to aesthetic highlight.
