Hettich has added a new dimension to the modern kitchen experience with a drawer system which combines the features of soft close and Push-to-open. This award-winning revolution in furniture technology is now available in the UK.

Push-to-open Silent is now offered for Hettich’s premium ArciTech drawer system. This entirely mechanical solution – no power supply required – is ideally suited to handle-less kitchens. It can be viewed and tested at the company’s prestigious and newly-remodelled showroom in Salford.

A gentle push on the front panel is all it takes to open the drawer, and another gentle push closes the drawer quietly and smoothly.

Push-to-open systems typically require more forceful closure to override the opening mechanism. However Hettich’s innovative Push-to-open Silent means no more compromise – the opening and closing action for drawers can be equally convenient and satisfying for the user.

Opening force can be adjusted according to user preference and to allow for different drawer weights. The system is hidden from view under the drawer, and can even be retro-fitted with no modification.

“This is such an impactful way to add value to a kitchen,” says Hettich UK marketing manager Colin Patterson. “Push-to-open Silent is sure to impress customers in the showroom, provides a real talking point, and represents a great solution for modern handle-less kitchens.”
