Titus Hinge Solutions Support Trends in Kitchen Design

Titus develops its range of innovative products to support manufacturers of kitchens and other furniture with solutions that are in line with contemporary trends following changing consumer needs. Cabinet hardware is hardly visible, and yet it is what makes kitchen designers’ visions possible. With new and improved functionalities and a life-time reliable performance, Titus cabinet hardware is the linchpin in the flawless user experience.

Titus T-type, the Most Efficient Hinge for Tall Cabinets

The focus on open home concepts leads to clean, streamlined, uncluttered kitchen design with emphasis on functionality and kitchen space management designed to reduce installation time on tall unites like never before. Tall larder units with well thought-out storage space are true marvels of space management. Here is where Titus T-type hinge presents itself as the market’s best solution for easy door installation in case where 3 or more hinges per door are needed. With its 3Way snap-on intuitive hinge-to-plate mounting in three directions, mounting doors has never been that quick and easy, thus significantly reducing time needed to assemble a kitchen.

Fitted for a Life-Time of Furniture

Customers are getting more informed and increasingly exigent in the level of quality they expect. Gaps or misalignments, no matter how minimal, are simply not an option. With respect to this request, Titus performs perfection in details and function by supplying cabinet hardware and fittings solutions with precise alignment of cabinet doors – for perfectly aligned gaps and life-long consistent performance up to 200.000 cycles. Titus T-type hinge encompasses all the prerequisites ensuring reliable door closing even in case of accidental misalignment and comes with an intuitive adjustment procedure. Thanks to specific hinge design, superior door stability without sagging is achieved. Another important advantage of T-type hinge is that it has Titus damper inside. Soft closing assures above-average consistency of performance over the entire furniture lifespan, with no re-bounce effect when door closes. Low or tall, thick or thin: T-type is a unique solution that works on doors of different dimensions and weights.

‘‘As are the latest trends in kitchen design proving to prefer simplicity and clean, unobstructed ambiance, so are Titus solutions designed to make the furniture assembly experience simple and stress-free while at the same time providing reliable and consistent life-long performance. Our solutions improve the competitiveness and differentiation demand of our customers. These are the core requirements for the future,’’  said Holger Geesmann, CCO Titus Europe.
