SICAM, Pordenone, October 10 – 13 2017

Kesseböhmer takes handleless opening and closing several steps further

The strong contemporary trend to clarity, straight lines and serene elegance has generated minimalistic kitchen designs with smooth handleless fronts for cabinets and drawers. Kesseböhmer is supporting this long-term trend with a new generation of mechanical push-to-open storage fittings for kitchen units. The unobtrusive technology enables user-friendly, emotive opening and closing. At the Sicam from October 10 to 13, 2017 in Pordenone, Italy, the company will be showcasing new mechanical “push-to-open” solutions for its lifters and narrow base unit fittings. One welcome benefit is to make push-to-open functionality now an option for virtually the whole kitchen.

A gentle push with your hand or your elbow, or a quick bump with your hip or your knee, triggers the opening movement. Push-to-open functionality is especially useful when you have both hands full. That’s why, at the Sicam, Kesseböhmer will be showcasing a concept for handleless opening for base units. The fittings open and close with the same harmonious action as the newest generation of drawer systems.

Kesseböhmer is also presenting a further development of the mechanical “pto” functionality for its “Free” lifter family at the Sicam. The ejector is now significantly more compact and in combination with the new “FreeLift” pto fittings, it makes Kesseböhmer’s entire lifter family ideal for mechanically opening handleless units. Gentle pressure on the front triggers mechanical opening of a generous grip gap. The user can then grip the edge and open the front manually and almost effortlessly to the desired angle.

In addition to all the lifters, the same ejector model can be used to open the tall storage fittings, “Tandem” and “Tandem solo”. Together with the new push-to-open technology for base units, and the already established “eTouch” electric opening, it extends the scope of Kesseböhmer’s “pto” offering for handleless fronts to fittings for the whole kitchen.
