SmartCab by Hafele Offers New Functionality for Base CabinetsARCHDALE, NC  – Häfele America Co. introduces SmartCab Storage System, a cabinet organization system which can be custom-configured to store a wide variety of household items into a standard base cabinet. This unit was specifically designed to fit into a 15” or 18” cabinet with a drawer above the door, a foundation of most home kitchens.

“SmartCab is truly a very unique product that provides a whole range of functionality for our customers,” says Daniel Tripp, product marketing manager for the kitchen industry at Häfele. “We received tremendous feedback during our market research as we developed this product and we know that its going to enhance the options in cabinetry.”

SmartCab is the only interchangeable storage system on the market. It offers a wide range of options and inserts, like cutting boards, spice organizers and roll managers for foils and wraps, that make it fully customizable without requiring a full height door. By designing SmartCab to fit in a standard kitchen base cabinet with a door/drawer configuration, Häfele has provided a more functional option that designers, architects and builders can provide their customers to help make items stored in base cabinets more accessible.

“Eighty percent of base cabinets produced have a drawer above the door but eighty percent of the accessories produced for base cabinets require a full height door,” explains Tripp. “SmartCab is a new solution for that eighty percent of base cabinets that can’t be outfitted with the products currently on the market.”

SmartCab mounts quickly to the base with just four screws and includes soft-close runners for a smooth and quiet operation. To learn more about the SmartCab and other cabinet solutions, please visit
