A push-to-open solution for these two fittings will soon be available. Other highlights are an electric drive, the extension with the Loox LED lighting system and a low-cost double flap lift up fitting.

There's no halting the triumphant march of the furniture flap in wall units. These flaps, which swivel elegantly upwards, fold or open parallel to the cabinet are simply too stylish and practical. They open up access to the entire cabinet interior, and there is no interfering hinged door jutting out into the room. The way in which innovative flap fitting technology engineered by Häfele will increase convenience and functionality in furniture manufacturing in the future was demonstrated by the Nagold hardware fitting specialist with its new “Free” flap fitting family at interzum in Cologne.
