No other drawer on the New Zealand market hides the screws and fixtures for smooth drawer sides – never catch anything on your drawer sides again.
• A corrosion test
• A wear test
ensuring a certain number of open and closures at maximum weight
• A retention-on-opening test,
a rough opening a certain number of times
• A horizontal load test
testing the drawers capacity to take a knock from the side without permanent damage when opened all the way
• A vertical strain test,
a drawers capacity to take a knock from above or below without permanent damage when opened all the way.
When selecting a high end drawer, you should be able to identify information on each of these points to make a clear comparison and identify the drawer that works for your space.
Though this is a basic technical function typically left up to the kitchen installer, it is worth checking in on. If you are putting too heavy a load in a drawer not built for it, it is inevitable it will wear out earlier than expected.
AvanTech YOU offers 4 different weight bearing options
10kg, 30kg, 40kg or 70kg
Opening and Closing Function
There a number of technical elements that enable the opening and closing functionality, but the key thing is ease of access in conjunction with the design. The opening and closing function that you choose enables:
• Soft close
a slow closure at the end to ensure the drawer contents don’t move around. Hettich calls its soft close functionality ‘Silent system’
• Handle less drawer design
where you open the drawer by pressing on it causing it to pop open. Hettich refers to this as ‘Push to open’.
• Synchronised opening
of extra wide handle less drawers, so if you push one side, the whole drawer opens evenly
• You can also have soft close and handleless drawer opening combined, which Hettich refers to as ‘Push to open Silent‘.
Where handleless drawers are concerned, the higher quality the mechanism the better it is for little hands, elderly and anybody whose ease of handling is limited.
