    Can hinges for side hung doors or sliding door systems be fitted in the Cadro frame system too?

    Yes, the Cadro frame system can be combined with side-hung doors by using the Sensys hinge. Sliding doors aren't a problem either in conjunction with Hettich's SlideLine M or SlideLine 66 sliding door systems. You'll find further details in our (online) catalogue.

    Can I get the M5 grub screw for securing the nodes in two surface finishes? And can I also get matching colour caps?

    Yes, the Cadro range includes matching grub screws and cover caps, which can be used as an option, each in the two standard surface finishes of black or silver.

  • Design

    Can I use the Cadro system outdoors too? Like for an outdoor kitchen?

    No, the Cadro aluminium frame system is only meant for indoor use.

  • Design

    Can the Actro YOU drawer runner be concealed or is it left visible?

    There's a matching cover profile that simply clips onto the drawer profile and conceals the carcase runner rail.

    Can the screw for connecting the profile and the connecting node be screwed in by hand?

    We recommend using a cordless screwdriver with a torque of 0.8 - 1 Nm. The grub screw can also be screwed in by hand with a 2.5 mm hexagon socket screwdriver. Yet because it's a self-tapping screw, this demands a certain amount of force.
