The perfect solution for contemporary kitchen design with the Grass Sensomatic Movement System from HÃ¤fele.
November 12th, 2009
For kitchen designers and users alike, there can be nothing more satisfying that a smooth-opening and soft-closing drawer – even when filled with heavy crockery or pots.
The Sensomatic electro-mechanical opening system goes hand-in-hand with the Airmatic soft-close mechanical dampening system. When paired this ‘symbiosis’ creates maximum comfort in all parts of the home.
The Grass Sensomatic Opening System from Häfele delivers this with electro-mechanical opening that strikes a balance between design and functional comfort.
The touch-sensitive Sensomatic device means it takes just a touch anywhere on the drawer front to open; an even, precise and elegant motion. This gives designers the flexibility of producing kitchen furniture with handle-free surfaces, clean lines and simple, elegant form.
A small drive unit behind the drawer requires little space and is incredibly energy efficient, making it the perfect environmentally sensitive solution.
Sensomatic ensures that each movement offers something for everyone, functional precision and ease of use to suit your lifestyle. The Sensomatic System can be used for everything from double-walled steel drawers and timber drawers to wire baskets, waste bin systems and even pantry units.
All Grass Nova Pro Drawers up to 1200mm wide and 70kg weight capacity can be combined with Sensomatic without modification of the drawers.
Never has it been easier, or more enjoyable, to open and close a drawer. Sensomatic and Airmatic soft-close combine to form a harmonious multi-functional mechanism; the two systems striking a balance between handle-free elegance and functional dampened closing.
