Hettich: The alternative to the flap

New design freedom with a high comfort factor

Following the “Red Dot Design Award” and the Australian “Gold Star Award”, Hettich’s WingLine L folding door system has now been awarded the “Good Design Award” by the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization.

WingLine L stands for a variety of design options and reliable ease of use. It is the first folding door system on the market that can be used to consistently implement trendy, handleless furniture design.

Whether in the wardrobe, in the niche or in the kitchen: Hettich’s WingLine L is the folding door system that is convincing in a wide range of applications: Wherever it gets narrow and open revolving doors would protrude too far into the room, the folding sliding door system becomes a practical problem solver. Corner cabinets, base cabinets or sideboards gain functionality through the comfortable folding door fitting.

Thanks to WingLine L, unused storage space can now also be accessed under stairs and sloping ceilings, making it visually appealing. For top-mounted and wall-mounted cabinets in the kitchen, WingLine L can play to its full advantage as an ergonomic alternative to the flap. And last but not least, the system surprises with its large-format wardrobes with its fascinating panoramic opening effect.

The innovative “Push / Pull to move” opening mechanism of the WingLine L reliably ensures comfortable operation: With just one hand movement, WingLine L opens a complete door package as if by itself.

With a height of up to 2400 mm and a width of 600 mm per door leaf, the fitting provides an overview and access to the entire contents of the cabinet. Due to the small door entry WingLine L also allows the combination of drawers and pull-outs behind the folding sliding door.

As the innovative folding door system also enables the implementation of handleless fronts, it meets the most modern design requirements. WingLine L can be used for all common door leaf formats and can be conveniently mounted without tools. Thus, even large cabinets can be built on site by just one mechanic.
