Hettich America – Sliding and Folding Door Systems

Feb 3, 2021

Sliding and folding rather than just opening
Attractive application solutions for the kitchen

Top favorite with consumers: sliding doors. Hettich has developed special application solutions that effortlessly bring the ergonomic and design benefits of sliding and folding doors to the kitchen. The result: a wealth of creative ideas for kitchen furniture in a new dimension of practical convenience.
Rather than reaching up or watching out for open doors all the time, sliding is the far more convenient option. The WingLine L folding-sliding door system with Push/Pull to move even opens handleless doors up to a height of 2400 mm and width of 1200 mm per door set almost by itself in response to a light press – doing so with impressive panorama effect. It can hide away an entire kitchen block. But WingLine L also demonstrates its capabilities in kitchen wall units and top mounted units. Added storage in the smallest of space, ergonomic accessibility and high user convenience. Whether large or small folding sliding doors, the fitting can be provided with soft opening and closing. With minimal door protrusion, WingLine L also permits the combination of drawers and pull-outs behind the folding sliding door.

New inspiration in kitchen design
In the single-track version, the SlideLine M sliding door system makes the dramatic interplay between open and closed segments in furniture an additional design highlight in the kitchen. With the 2-track version, storage spaces can be closed off completely, instantly hiding away contents in the kitchen midway section or wall unit and restoring order. The system makes it incredibly easy to produce 1, 2 or 3 doors solutions for overlay or inset doors in different sizes and applications. With its shallow profile rising to a height of only 8 mm, the sliding door fitting discreetly integrates into the design of furniture – also through the choice of several color options. Silent System is also unobtrusively integrated in the fitting, allowing doors to open and close gently and quietly. If several drawers run in the same profile, a soft colliding element also comes into play. SlideLine M is suitable for all conventional furniture designs and wooden doors weighing up to 30 kg. The single-track application also permits the use of doors in glass or aluminium. Both systems are extremely easy and efficient to install.
