Hettich Australia announces that the Sensys wide angle hinge has won the Product Design 2014 Red Dot Award. Just like the Sensys profile door hinge, the Sensys wide angle hinge has also won the iF Product Design Award 2014.

According to Dr Andreas Hettich, the award-winning Sensys hinge has proven to be a real success story. When Hettich first presented the Sensys hinge generation with integrated Silent System to the Red Dot Award jury, it won in the Product Design 2008 category.

Years later, the Sensys range continues to make the Hettich brand proud with the Sensys wide angle hinge and profile door hinge versions triumphing in prestigious design competitions such as the Red Dot Award and the iF Product Design Award.

The awards serve as an acknowledgement by industry that Hettich is setting benchmarks in the furniture industry with products of technical excellence.

Sensys wide angle hinges

The Sensys wide angle hinge gives furniture doors a wide opening angle and closes them evenly and gently. The invisibly integrated Silent System offers excellent performance with an exceptionally wide self-closing angle of 35°, functioning over a temperature range of +5°C to +40°C, and providing maximum access from a 165° opening angle. Zero protrusion permits the use of internal drawers without spacer profiles.
