Wall cabinets - Blum covers all options
With the introduction of the Aventos HK-XS lift stay systems for wall cabinets, Blum has now addressed the requirements of all furniture manufacturers - and retailers can display a product that immediately enthuses their customers.
The wide design of wall cabinets has been driven by market trends and is increasing year on year. The Aventos lift stay system is unmatched in terms of ease of use due to various features, and now covers all types and sizes of wall unit.
The award winning Aventos HK-XS has applications throughout the home and will work with limited depth 125mm cabinets like those above the extractor hood or over the bathroom basin.
Aventos HK-XS allows the user to open the cabinet with ease and the door will remain in any desired position while the cabinet is in use. Lighter cabinet doors usually only require a single HK-XS on one side with the doors being hinged using the award winning CLIPtop hinges with integrated BluMotion soft close (BluMotion itself is a notable award winner with the European Invention of the Year). For heavier doors, a double lift mechanism can be used.
As with all Aventos options, assisted opening can be facilitated with the mechanical Tip-On system, which also allows for handleless options.
Blum has entered the market with the HK-XS at a highly competitive price and, as with all Blum products, it has been extensively tested (80,000 cycles) so that it can be sold with the surety of Blum's lifetime guarantee.
The Aventos HK-XS does not replace the Aventos HK-S but is rather the next step in this direction of development from the world's leading fittings innovators - it's a superb attraction for any retailer looking for additional reasons to engage customers.
