Häfele Free flap fittings

Top design wins multiple awards

The innovative Free flap fittings from Häfele have won numerous prestigious design awards in Germany and the USA within a short period of time. The top class high technology, the extremely rational installation capability of any fitting on the market thanks to pin installation and the attractive design obviously enter into a successful symbiosis in this family of fittings. Slimmer, lighter, simpler – the Häfele flap fitting solutions have been conceived in accordance with these specifications. The result impressed the judges of the “Good Design Award” in Chicago, the renowned “iF Design Award” and the “Red dot Design Award”, as well as the jury of the Baden-Württemberg International Design Award.

The family of Free flap fittings with its flawless quality in accordance with the German standard with an opening experience that is second to none is manufactured in our own manufacturing facility in Hungary. Free was newly developed from the ground up to be an independent and modular range of fittings, and can therefore be used in an extremely flexible way. All of the most popular openings are covered with Free flap, Free fold, Free up and Free swing.

One particular goal during the development of the Free fittings was to have a slimline design. The components were to function as unobtrusively as possible inside the cabinet. The cover caps are also appropriately stylish.

All of the flaps are very easy to operate, and are characterised by their extreme ease of movement. They are is suitable for all of the most popular front panel materials and flap sizes. Free fittings have an integrated soft close for smooth and silent closing. This mechanism works both in the opening and closing direction with the Free fold, Free up and Free swing fittings.

The flap fittings can be used in all areas of furniture construction, and contribute to increasing the value to the furniture thanks to their functionality and appearance. With the option of simple electrification using plug and play, Free flap fittings offer another competitive advantage and are therefore child’s play to combine with Loox, the market-leading range of lighting products from Häfele.
