One-piece Turn Fastener shelf connector
Häfele has another component to offer its partners which comes decisively closer to this goal in the form of the Turn Fastener. This fitting is the result of development cooperation. The patented basic idea has been supplemented by optimised handling and efficient production know-how by Häfele. The Turn Fastener is a high-quality, one-piece shelf connector for chipboard with a thickness of 18 mm and above. It is secured by hand with a simple turn. Because of the 90° rotation, the plastic sleeve expands in the drill hole and provides a secure and permanent connection. This tool-less technology is particularly suitable for the quick and easy installation of shelves, i.e. for manufacturers of kitchen and shelf systems particularly in the RTA sector, but also for all other innovative furniture manufacturers who have seen the trend towards further simplification of furniture installation. It can withstand heavy loads. It is therefore no wonder that the Häfele engineers are predicting a big future for this innovative connector.
