Häfele Launches Blum's TANDEMBOX antaro and TANDEMBOX intivo

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Wednesday, October 31, 2012 -- (Business Wire India) -- Häfele launches Blum's TANDEMBOX antaro and TANDEMBOX intivo to meet the latest developments in the field of kitchen design and to complement its existing range of pull-outs. Austrian manufacturer of fittings with Häfele releases the new TANDEMBOX intivo and TANDEMBOX antaro in the Indian market to meet the latest trends in kitchen design and to complement the existing range. A multitude of design options and provides a wide selection of materials for high fronted pull-outs.

The purist TANDEMBOX antaro is characterized by rectangular gallery rails. By using angular elements and by harmonizing the color of all fittings components, Blum has created a system that is a clear alternative to pull-outs with round gallery rails. TANDEMBOX antaro is based on tried and tested system components. The color and material concept of TANDEMBOX antaro is also based on that of TANDEMBOX intivo. This means that manufacturers have a manageable product range with many new and different opportunities for design.

The individual TANDEMBOX intivo gives customers even more possibilities to personalize high fronted pull-outs. The box system is available in a vast array of materials and colors, thus providing a multitude of new possibilities for differentiation. TANDEMBOX intivo has a harmonious appearance, consisting of a drawer side without a gallery rail. The drawer side can be combined with a Boxcap, an attachment of the same drawer side material, or with design elements of any material such as glass (which can now also be printed with colorful décors, logos and writing), wood or stone, nylon or leather. When conceiving TANDEMBOX intivo, developers took great care to achieve a balance between drawer side and design element. The transition is smooth. There is no gap between drawer side and design element. The same concept can also be used for inner drawers. The new high fronted pull-out drawer side has 3-dimensional front adjustment - directly under the drawer side cover cap.

All pull-out systems provide enhanced user convenience. All of Blum's box systems close softly and silently with integrated Blumotion and all of them have a feather-light glide. Full extensions give users clear visibility and direct access to contents. Thanks to the wide range of products, a multitude of applications are possible. In addition, the box systems excel in terms of simple assembly and user-friendly adjustment technology because all TANDEMBOX product lines have the same system components such as cabinet profiles and backs. The user convenience of Blum's pull-outs can be further enhanced with Servo-Drive. The electric opening system can be used for all three models. A single touch suffices and pull-outs seem to open by themselves. As an alternative, pull-outs can be equipped with the Tip-on mechanical system to increase opening ease.
