Hettich opens the way to better sliding doors
Practicality, performance and style meet in three ingenious and robust sliding door mechanisms now available from Hettich UK. Inline P, TopLine 22 and TopLine M offer special features for particular two/three-door applications, such as flush closing, 'silent' soft close and opening/sliding options on the same cabinet design, creating the option to upgrade to sliding doors as a retrofit.
All three feature in Hettich's new sliding and folding door catalogue put together specially for the UK.
If specified in a two-door configuration, InLine P allows wooden doors up to 35-mm thick, 2 m wide and 2.5 m high, and weighing up to 60 kg, to close flush next to each other. Three-door configurations permit a total cabinet width of a maximum 4 m, but still closing flush. The soft close features Silent System as standard.
For large cabinets with wooden or aluminium-frame doors, TopLine 22 offers special runner, and four guide system options which mean the plinth zone can be matched to virtually any furniture design. The two-track runner profile allows mounting on top of the front panel. Silent System can be specified.
TopLine M allows the manufacturer to offer opening or sliding door options on the same cabinet design, which means retrofit upgrades are possible from hinged to sliding doors - a strong selling feature. TopLine M is specially designed for smaller wardrobes and cabinets, ensuring maximum access where space is a bit more limited.
Like TopLine 22, TopLine M is suitable for wooden or aluminium-frame doors, and the bottom guide can be mounted either in front of the bottom panel or hidden out of view below it. A comprehensive range of add-on profiles in aluminium are available, such as door, door-end and cabinet-end profiles.
