LAS VEGAS - If you’ve been shopping for outdoor kitchen cabinetry lately you’ll notice one thing about their inside…they’re not designed for the outside. Glideware™ will be introducing the first-of-its-kind outdoor kitchen cabinet organizer at this year’s KBIS, the world’s largest kitchen and bath tradeshow.
True to its nature, Glideware™ has a knack for finding kitchen storage problems and solving them successfully. The introduction of its ingenious “Hang. Don’t stack.©” cabinet hardware solved the age-old problem of unruly base cabinet storage. That 2014 new product introduction won the company a KBIS “Best Of” Silver Award along with dozens of story features including those from Bob Vila’s “Top Picks”, DIY Network’s “I Want That”, Kitchen and Bath Design News “#5 Most Asked About Product of 2014”, This Old House’s “Top 100 Best New Home Products” and dozens more.
So what’s the outdoor buzz about? A complete, high-grade Polyethylene makeover, specifically designed for outdoor conditions. The company’s Colorado home-base provided the ideal test ground for a four-seasons range of outdoor abuse. “We’re thrilled not only with the high quality and rugged durability of this new outdoor product, but also with its elegance.” says Jenny Hall, Vice-President and company co-founder. “Just like our indoor product, the hardware is completely concealed with beautiful faceplates, weather resistant stainless steel slides, and Glideware’s™ own Synchronized Motion™.” she concludes.
And that design – is by design. Moving up on the “let’s get noticed” A-list, Glideware™ has enjoyed a high level of product development attention from industry giant, Blum® Inc . “We’ve made improvements to all of our products for 2015.” offered Dave Hall, President and company co-founder. “Many of the new product enhancements are a direct result of a very high level of design collaboration from Blum’s® top leaders. Especially in the overall beauty and functionality of our products.”
In addition to the influence of Blum®, and the introduction of its new outdoor kitchen cabinet hardware, Glideware™ will be occupying a larger booth space at the 2015 KBIS show to accommodate a number of interactive displays designed to show off the unmatched versatility of the company’s products.
“We like to say that Glideware™ didn’t change the kitchen cabinet…it changed the way we interact with our kitchens. With one simple SKU, we’ve fundamentally changed the way cabinet storage works.” quotes Hall. This year’s KBIS show-goers will see all that new versatility – in both inside and outside versions.
Glideware’s® “Hang. Don’t stack.©” ingenuity eliminates unruly piles of stored items, significantly increasing useable cabinet space, improving accessibility, and liberating users from endless cabinet reorganizing. Its top quality, USA made storage system glides out of a standard cabinet giving fingertip access to stored items. A single rail holds up to 100 pounds, easily stowing 27 pieces of cookware in a 27” cabinet.
