Kitchen Hardware Creation Awarded First Patent

Glideware, inventor of the extendable cabinet organizer, has been awarded its first US Patent – a pivotal step in the young company’s growth, and one that secures the design feature that has been recognition as the first authentic revolution in cabinet storage since Soft Close drawers.

Since its introduction, Glideware™ products have been the recipient of numerous prestigious accolades including the Kitchen and Bath Industry’s “Best of KBIS” Silver Award at their 2014 International Trade Show. National features by Bob Vila, HGTV, DIY Network, Kitchen and Bath Magazine, and numerous others have catapulted the company into national sales and distribution in just over a year.

Glideware’s™ “Hang. Don’t stack.©” design ingenuity eliminates unruly piles of stored items, significantly increases useable cabinet space, improves accessibility, and liberates users from endless restacking and disorganization.

The top quality, USA Made extendable rail system is equipped with hooks for hang-­‐able, storage. The system glides out of a standard cabinet giving fingertip access to stored items. The product holds up to 100 pounds, easily stowing 27 pieces of cookware in a 27” cabinet.

But the company didn’t stop at the kitchen. In under 18 months Glideware™ has adapted the systems for use around the entire house, even the garage. The recent addition of its outdoor line means easy storage and durable performance even in rugged outside conditions.

Having undergone dozens of design improvements since its inception. It now features hidden under mount soft-­‐close technology, stainless steel hardware, high-­‐end finishes and Synchronized Motion®. These features have all contributed to the May 5, 2015 issuance of Patent # 9,022,237 for the first-­‐of-­‐its-­‐kind “extendable storage device.” Additional patents are pending.

The product is now also available with Blum Tandem Hardware. To find an authorized dealer or distributor or to get more information go to the company’s website:
