AVENTOS HKi – optimal integration
The new stay lift from Blum blends seamlessly into furniture
Fittings: the more unobtrusive and space-saving they are, the better. At this year's interzum, the Austrian fittings manufacturer is showcasing a brand-new built-in stay lift that blends seamlessly into furniture: AVENTOS HKi is integrated fully into the cabinet side.
AVENTOS HKi is a real technical masterstroke. Blum, the fittings specialist, is showcasing its latest stay lift at this year’s digital interzum 2021. Its slim design enables this lift system to be integrated fully into a cabinet side with a panel thickness of 16 mm or more, opening up brand-new design possibilities for furniture: lift systems can be installed in the cabinet without losing any storage space and whatever design is required can be fitted consistently. Be it wood, MDF or a narrow or wide aluminium frame combined with glass – whichever material you choose, AVENTOS HKi is concealed when the cabinet is closed and integrates harmoniously into any wall or tall cabinet. Whether in the kitchen or the living room, the most slender of Blum's lift systems is the ideal solution for any living space.
Easy assembly, can also be fitted as semi-integrated solution
The Austrian fittings manufacturer has developed its own assembly devices to make light work of installation. These permit exact yet straightforward installation into the cabinet side for fully integrated units, allowing AVENTOS HKi to blend seamlessly into the furniture. If required, the same fitting can also be fitted as a semi-integrated solution, in combination with a suitable cover cap of a high quality design. This means that the semi-integrated fitting is also optimally installed into the furniture, with cover caps available in silk white, light grey and dark grey.
Reliable Blum quality and adjustment options
The AVENTOS HKi technology is concealed in the side panel of furniture, yet still gives total control: the BLUMOTION soft-close mechanism ensures that wall cabinets always close softly and effortlessly. And just because the fitting is installed in the cabinet side doesn't mean that manufacturers have to forego the tried-and-tested 3-dimensional adjustment from the front, an integrated opening angle stop or the variable stop. Once configured, the front can be held in any position, making it easier to close too. Different lift mechanism types installed symmetrically ensure flexibility for solutions with fronts weighing up to 18 kg. For handle-less applications, the new integrated lift system can also be used in combination with TIP-ON motion technology. All this in the most slender of constructions of just a few millimetres and with quality synonymous with Blum.
