Is the refrigerator still an electrical appliance or now a piece of furniture? Hettich says: a refrigerator is both. Because the trend towards open plan living is unbroken. The refrigerator no longer necessarily stands in the kitchen but more and more as an eye catcher and individual item in the middle of the room. With the openness between kitchen and living space, more convenience and a greater feel of luxury is also being demanded from refrigerators: with doors that open and close with effortless ease and almost in silence.
Hettich has brought updated convenience to its classic K05 fitting for XXL refrigerators, completely integrating its high quality soft closing Silent System into the hinge. K05 with Silent System now also guarantees quieter door action and the noticeably higher level of convenience for particularly large built in refrigerators and freezers as well as wine coolers in the premium segment. Providing a luxurious feel, K05 S/L quietly closes doors weighing up to 92 kg, K05 X can easily support doors weighing up to 110 kg and closes them in a controlled and particularly soft manner. Needless to say, the new K05 hinge with Silent System comes with all of the familiar K05 benefits: the wide opening angle of 115° which not only prevents any collision with adjacent units but is also incredibly practical. As a result, crisper drawers, for example, can be pulled open all the way. Or the optional 90° opening angle stop for refrigerators positioned next to the wall, as well as perfect accommodation of American installation situations, such as face frame.
Taking up a minimal installation space, the zero maintenance K05 with Silent System provides maximum practical convenience in conjunction with high door loads. The high quality soft closing function consists of two fully Silent System elements to guarantee even, soft closing performance. Depending on door size, the K05 hinges with and without Silent System can be adapted to suit any appliance configuration and combined with each other.
