Perfectionism in corner cabinets from Vauth-Sagel - plus much more!
Providing maximum possible storage space for all those things that need to be stored in kitchen cabinets today is an important topic in modern kitchen design - from cookware all the way through to groceries.
The system fittings manufacturers are important development partners for the kitchen furniture industry, as they offer a huge range of solutions for kitchen interiors. To this end, Vauth-Sagel has again and again proven itself in the past to be the supplier willing to embark on new paths and develop innovative solutions.
Such as in the case of the Recorner maxx, for instance... The corner cabinet solution completely dispenses with the bulky central column, allowing consumers to fully utilise the storage space on shelves in corner base cabinets, corner wall cabinets and corner tall cabinets unhindered.
The round shelves are assembled on a stabiliser bar that runs across the carcass. The installation of the vertical bracket is carried out on the inside of the carcass. Here, the fitting's mechanism remains virtually invisible to the consumer. And the Recorner maxx is a filigree work of art: the stabiliser bars, running underneath the shelves, are virtually invisible even in corner wall cabinets!
Recorner maxx is perfectly tailored to 900-millimetre cabinets; its installation depth is 815 millimetres. The height-adjustable shelf positioning is a fantastic feature that is completely independent of the carcass height. This means that several shelves no longer have to be connected to each other and can be separately moved, an attribute that also makes the Recorner maxx an outstanding solution for sink base cabinets. The height of the module, which comprises the fitting and two shelves, is approximately 620 millimetres.
Thanks to the huge space available on the single shelf, the Recorner maxx is also perfect for storing even bulky items such as oven dishes, clay ovens, serving platters and oversized bowls in corner cabinets. And these shelves can definitely handle heavy loads: each shelf has a maximum load-bearing capacity of around 27.5 kilogrammes.
Depending on the cabinet layout, fitters can install either 3/4- or 4/4-shelf designs. But that's not all: Vauth-Sagel has also adapted its Recorner maxx to the current trend towards organically-shaped kitchens. Here, the round shelves take on the concave curve of the cabinet doors... An elegant and coherent detail - nothing obstructs the round shape of the worksurface even when corner cabinet doors are open.
The round shelves come in a selection of finishes: white with Plexiglass edge, white with shiny chrome rail and grey shelf as well as a silver-coloured rail - once again offering kitchen designers and, of course, consumers a huge array of options.
"With this, the Recorner maxx is not just a fitting that is absolutely unique within the market, it also perfectly adapts the look of a kitchen and coherently continues this through to the corner cabinet interior." said the team. "It can also be retrofitted to existing corner cabinets."
