New Generation of User Friendly Functions
Push to Open Silent from Hettich

As a pioneer of Push to open Silent technology, Hettich has added numerous new features to the second product generation. As a result, Push to open Silent provides the same convenience as electromechanical opening systems

Drawers opens entirely mechanically in response to a light press on the front panel – on shutting, they unnoticeably load the opening mechanism and close in a gently cushioned movement. Even small, lightweight drawers hitherto lacking momentum, close reliably and gently. Using special runners and Push to open Silent units, Hettich has managed to develop an end to end solution for all drawer formats. The particular practical convenience is evident in many facets, such as in the retriggering guard: the system recognizes drawers closed by hand and does not reopen them accidentally. And if there’s a lack of momentum on closing, the drawer is prevented from opening again and the force needed to close it is reduced.

On opening, optional synchronization makes sure that a kitchen like drawer front gap of 2.5 mm is sufficient to reliably activate the system even when pressing the edges of large format front panels. When the drawer is pulled open, it feels just the same as a drawer on Silent System runners.

Push to open Silent is suitable for AvanTech, ArciTech and InnoTech drawers as well as for Actro 5D and Quadro 4D runners for wooden drawers. The runners are installed quickly and without the need for tools. The new Push to open Silent product generation provides a viable alternative to electromechanical systems as it leaves no margin of doubt in terms of user friendly convenience and is way ahead under economic and ecological aspects.
