    Pivot/slide-in hardware systems are multi-functional wizards. They create space in front of the cabinet and provide unobstructed access to its entire content. Hafele UK are proud to present a new hardware system of this kind that will set new standards in the field of high-end furniture construction and interior design. HAWA-Concepta 25/30/50 for wood and glass doors was first presented to a broad international audience at the interzum in the spring of 2009 and will soon be available from Hafele UK HAWA-Concepta 25/30/50 gets things moving in front of the cabinet and in multi-functional room utilisation. It creates elegant storage space solutions in modern living and working environments and can move wood and glass doors weighing up to 50 kg. The innovative pivot/slide-in hardware perfectly combines the two movement forms of pivoting and sliding: it allows doors to be opened conventionally by 90 degrees with a slight pivoting motion and then pushed into a recess to save space; simple to implement, convenient for everyday use.Cabinets, kitchen units or the home office now open up fully to offer the user unrestricted access with no door protruding into the room. The HAWA-Concepta 25/30/50 is also suitable for creating efficient and simple room-high designs without a cabinet body, for instance in wall recesses or walk-in wardrobes. It is this versatility that makes the hardware the ideal solution for creating clever storage space options that make a very tidy impression in private living spaces, public buildings, offices and shops.

    Room for design with wood and glass

    HAWA-Concepta 25/30/50 is a future-oriented system for wood and glass doors that does without a bottom guide channel and enables ideal and flexible room utilisation.
    Cabinetmakers and interior designers use it to fulfil specific customer requirements as design options with this hardware system are virtually unlimited. It is also very flexible with regard to dimensions: it accommodates door heights of up to 2850 mm, widths from 300 to 900 mm, wood thicknesses from 19 to 50 mm and a glass thickness of 8 mm (toughened safety glass). The system also provides the greatest possible storage space inside the cabinet: a door with a thickness of 30 mm, for instance, needs a maximum recess width of just 55 mm.

    The new, modular, all-glass system with form-fitting and therefore absolutely safe glass fastenings is further evidence of just how much room for design there is. Plain anodised aluminium decor disks for glass patch suspension, vertical cover plates and a frame profile with integrated door handles in three lengths add up to a total of four different design options. Hawa also offers front metal covers for every profile, revealing a particular passion for visual high-quality solutions characterised by a love of detail. Furniture manufacturers and designers can let their creativity run free as the HAWA-Concepta 25/30/50 is also suitable for serial production.
