Push to open Silent for ArciTech drawers

Engineered by Hettich, ArciTech and the new Push to open Silent function culminate in a system drawer that combines a mechanical Push to open mechanism with the convenience and luxurious feel of Silent System. In particular, the system impresses with narrow gaps between drawer fronts and optimum adjustment for various applications. The result: classy handleless design and high user convenience from using standard ArciTech drawer elements for cost-effective production.

Push to open Silent – convenient opening function
Working on an all-mechanical basis, Push to open Silent manages to do what has previously only been possible with electromechanical systems: It brings together handleless design with a high level of drawer opening and closing convenience. The Push to open Silent mechanism is triggered simply by pressing the drawer front. Automatic opening saves time and makes drawers easy to use, particular when both hands are full - without ruling out the option of opening the drawer directly by the front panel. Closing the drawer automatically reloads the Push to open mechanism before the drawer glides home in a gently softened movement. Benefiting from cleverly devised setting capabilities, Push to open Silent perfectly adjusts to different drawer sizes and weights. Adjustable release sensitivity and opening force provide a high level of convenience throughout. The integrated depth adjustment facility permits perfect front panel alignment with narrow gap between drawer fronts. Push to open Silent makes it easy to create handleless kitchens and furniture because drawers, runners, carcases and front panels can be used without having to alter them. The mechanism simply fits under the drawer base, scoring in particular where there’s no room for an electromechanical system behind the drawer.
