When assessing the quality and degree of success of a design project or product, we all agree in the following statement ‘details make all the difference’.
Some materials require more care than others: glass is one example. Transparent and delicate, it is generally used for products that feature a high degree of elegance.
Glass products’ fine details jump out at you immediately, but unfortunately even the ones that clash do. In wardrobes and bookcases, in particular, doors, shelves, handles, but also more technical details such as hinges and sliding systems, must be given the same attention so as not to incur the unpleasant ‘everything is very nice, but…’.
So, for a noteworthy result, details – including technical ones – are needed.
Glix, a hinge system for hinged glass doors installed on doors up to 2650 mm high and 600 mm wide, with a minimum thickness of 4 mm, comes to our aid.
Not only glass: Glix is in fact available in another version to be installed on wooden doors as well, with a thickness ranging from 16 to 25 mm to guarantee – in both applications – an aesthetically pleasing and distinguishable result.
Most commonly used as a door-opening system for wardrobes but also for bookcases or shelving units, Glix hinges ensure an easy, smooth, quiet and decelerated opening and closing movement, making the system a practical and ideal solution for living and sleeping areas.
Glix is a highly functional product, but in addition to this, it boasts a revolutionary feature: once installed, it is almost invisible. Transparent and ultra-minimal, it goes without saying that glass door systems demand the utmost attention to the smallest details, even more so than wardrobes and bookcases with wooden doors.
Furnital’s glass door hinge system guarantees a functionally practical and flawless result: wardrobes, bookcases and shelving units will look minimal and perfectly linear even in their most technical details.
