If you’re considering replacing your cabinet hardware with a push to open latch, read on for 4 benefits of the furniture fitting here:
An ultra-sleek, modern look
People love the look of handle-less furniture, especially a handle-less kitchen, due to the flat smooth surface left from the absence of a handle. Cabinets look sleek, inline and clean and the look is timeless – so there’s no need to worry if it goes out of fashion. Push to open latches create an elegant look which enhances the growth of a ‘less is more’ design.
They’re easier to fit and use
Push to open latches do what they say on the tin. There’s no need to make holes in the cabinets to screw in handles or knobs, enabling you to easier change the colour of your cupboards as and when, without having to replace, refit or find handles to match. The K PUSH push open to latch at SCF Hardware is the newest automatic opening system, which works in conjunction with reverse and opposite sprung hinges. it’s also available in two versions, so that it works with a variety of differently hinged cupboards.
They’re powerful and effective
The point of a handle is to be able to open and close a cupboard door, and push to open latches do just that, but better! The K PUSH magnetic push catch has a special inner mechanism which provides a silent yet very powerful utilization that lasts, making it ideal for all kinds of doors. This enables the user to simply push the door lightly and the door pops open, then push the door back into place and the magnetic push catch holds it closed.
They take up less space
Smaller spaces and kitchens would benefit from push to open latches, especially for cabinets below waist level. There’s nothing to accidentally catch your clothes on or for the kids to bang into. Just simply touch with your hand – or feet – and they’ll pop open.
